  1. Although I haven’t had surgery, I eat a low carb keto diet. On my cruise, I told the MDR waiter I am on a keto diet the first night. He was GREAT. Every night he would make suggestions on what meals are low carb, substitute the starches for veggies and eliminate sauces and butter (I cut butter too). Often times he would bring veggies that weren’t on the menu and they were well prepared. I did not have to ask each night as he was prepared with my options. He would also bring the next nights menu over so I could peak. He knew the ingredients and definitely watched out for me. The waiters
  2. I am so glad you found the review helpful! I hope you have a fantastic time on your cruise and enjoy yourself. I had such a good time that I book another cruise on the Grandeur for the final cruise before she leaves the RC fleet. Ten days is just around the corner. 😁
  3. One of my biggest worries was how to pack for the weather. I packed both summer and spring attire plus a lightweight jacket. I definitely overpacked and had my kids overpack because of the uncertainty of weather. I hope your trip has fantastic weather as well. Enjoy your cruise!!!!
  4. I am glad I saved to compasses. I started to throw them away onboard when packing but decided to pack them instead. It is nice to know they came in handy. And I learned something new on CC. I didn’t know a person could react. Now I need to figure out how. 😂
  5. Ah, the precruise excitement! I am glad the excitement is building. The NE area is so beautiful . Have a fantastic vacation. I keep thinking about my next cruise and scanning the RCI website looking for the raise that jumps out to me and fits into the families schedule. Hopefully it jumps out soon! Haha.
  6. And at last, the Compass for Day 9 😃. I hope these provided the information you were looking for. Now I can go watch some mind numbing tv like The Bachelorette and see what the men have to say in Men Tell All ... ☺️ Grandeur NE 9 Day Compass Day 9.pdf
  7. I could not find the Day 8 Compass but did find a photo of 3 of the 4 pages that I took while aboard the ship (I took pictures each day rather than carrying the compass that way I could refer to it throughout the day 😀). The quality if so-so but it gives the activities for the day.
  8. Thank you. I had so many pictures it gets hard choosing, especially trying to find thumbnail size pictures while avoiding pics with people.
  9. Attached are the Compasses for Day 6 & 7. I still have not found day 8. Grandeur NE 9 Day Compass Day 6.pdf Grandeur NE 9 Day Compass Day 7.pdf
  10. No problem. I actually enjoyed writing about the day each day. It was almost like journaling my vacation. I’ve never done that before but at the end of each day it was a way to unwind before bed.

  12. Attached is the Day 2 Compass. I also came across the Meet the Officers handout and attached that in case there is any interest. Grandeur NE 9 Day Compass Day 2.pdf Grandeur Meet the Officers June 2019.pdf
  13. I am so glad my review was helpful. You will have to let me know what you think of the cruise/itinerary after your cruise. I hope you enjoy the cruise as much as I did, 😃Looking through my papers, I see all of the compasses except Day 8. Day 8 was a sea day and the 2nd formal. I will keep looking to see if I can find Day 8. I will have to scan the itineraries in and try to figure out how to upload a pdf (versus picture). I will upload them in pieces (by day) as I get the time. Day 1 is attached. If this works, I figured it out, 2019-07-18_194902.pdf
  14. GoFundy charges a flat rate, not per person. The maximum is six people but they will take less since he is not loosing money. The nice part is that you can stay longer in areas you like and less time in other areas. I do not know of any other suggestions but would highly recommend GoFundy. If you want to lower the cost, you may look on the roll call and see if anyone wants to join the two of you. As a side note, my DH sent the tour guide Alexei an email asking where he got the maple hard candies he gave us to take home and received a quick response even after the fact. My husband really
