  1. So sorry for your loss. Top her will be missed. This tread brought a tear to my eye.
  2. We sailed the Glory in October and had 9200. The Grand Scenic that sleeps 4. Our favorite room. cant say enough great things about The Ruby Slipper. My favorite place in NOLA.
  3. We were on the Glory a few weeks ago and loved it. its only open for lunch and the other poster was correct. There is not much foot traffic. You have to go look for it. The Mac and Cheese was awesome.The recipes for the sides are different than the sides on the Lido or dining room. Definitely give it a try. The meat portions are small so just ask for double meet.
  4. We sailed out of NOLA on the Glory two weeks ago and out of Mobile last August. Both ships had Country Trivia.Got 39/40 and got second. Both had Musicians who had Country in their sets playing in the Atrium. There was much more “canned background “ music on the cruise out of Mobile. We are Country Music fans so we were paying attention.
  5. There was a guy playing the steel drum on the Glory two weeks ago. He was in various places on the ship.
  6. Disappointed as well that you could not view your photos on the app. however there is a new promotion
  7. Not sure who is running it. We booked direct through the LFK website
  8. We were there just this last week. This was our second time. The first was about six years ago. It is as beautiful as ever. Almost all the animals are gone. Everything is built up, almost too much. We we had a good day but it’s not like it used to be. There was myself, wife and two teenage kids. We we have read the attached link and found it interesting. Based on our last visit we probably won’t go again. We were on Carnival and for the same money they offer a tour on Big French Key which is really the same las LFK. We actually swam over and walked around. We we will probably just go to the free beach. It looked great and was not that crowded. For what it cost we’d save the $$.
  9. I bought a Citizen Echo Drive on board several years ago and it was a good deal. It’s Titanium and pretty hard to find. Like anything you you need to be educated consumer before you make the purchase. Google and Amazon are your friend before you get on board. If you find find something on board look at the stores while in port. Compare prices when you have free WiFi. My thoughts If you find find the right price get it. If you are just looking for a special piece talk to your local jeweler before you go. You may be surprised what they can do.
  10. We sailed out of Mobile in August. We parked off site (SpotHero) for $30 for the 5 days and used Uber and it was very easy. I would reccomend Uber.
  11. I’d try Nachi again. We have been there multiple times. Once or twice the service has been OK, but I think it definitely checks most of your boxes. We are try Mr Sanchos next month for the water toys. I will report back.
  12. They were right about $ 50 a carton in August. Marlboro were the same price on ship and on shore in Cozumel.
