  1. My ferry trips were 1991, 2006, 2010. and 2016. I don't remember the cabin statistics on the first 3 but I got lucky on my 2016 Kennicott trip. I was closer to the bathroom on that trip than I am in my own house. The longest walk on that ship would be about 120 feet. Roy
  2. I'll start with a little odyssey about me. I have spent at least one night in the outdoors in every state, province, and Canadian Territory. I was late to travel, never venturing more than about 200 miles from the lower 48 until 1991 at the age of 48. My first venture was an Alaska trip put together by a company my travel agent suggested that I was able to tailor a bit to my desires. The outline Fly to Seattle and Ketchikan MV Matanuska Ketchikan to Skagway (first ever overnight at sea) Rental Car to Fairbanks, Denali, and Anchorage Fly home from Anch
  3. I am in a meeting but will elaborate a bit later. Roy
  4. Did you by chance get to Kluane National Park? Roy
  5. They did the surgery through a catheter inserted in my groin, guided by an ultrasound source in my esophagus. They did not cut into my chest at all. Roy
  6. Unless she tested positive I would not expect her to be asked. I believe they are looking for contacts of actual positives. In Maryland we got reports of the types of activities people were doing that came up in contact tracing. Spread appeared to be mostly from private gatherings. Roy
  7. Today's sunrise is from my 2015 Crystal Serenity-Prinsendam combination. On May 17 I disembarked the Crystal Serenity in Lisbon: Roy

  10. My apologies if this gets too gross. Starting while I was in the hospital instead of the normal bowel I was getting frequent spurts of either liquid or loose paste, often light in color. I suspect this was related to the tube that was placed down my esophagus during the surgery, a sensor that ended up near the heart to guide the surgeons in placing the clip. I came home in absorbent briefs and things got to the point where I had to step away and change them in the middle of yesterday's church. That continued pretty much all day yesterday. I finally had an almost normal bowel movement this
  11. Thank you for the Monday Daily, Rich. I'm trying to undo being a pack rat. Wishing those who celebrate Shavuot the best. Telecommunications are especially important in these times. My taxes are long done. The quote is especially relevant in these times but hoping that will change. Haines and Skagway are separate ports and I've been to both on BHB's but I have a feeling Haines may have been dropped. The meal sounds great. My alternative is Chilled Guanabana Soup, Oven Roasted Chicken, and Peach Crisp, supplemented by a Lido Barbecue as served on MS Veendam May 17, 2016:
  12. A question for the Chief. If somehow Canada could be persuaded to allow ships to dock in Vancouver, closing the public parts of Canada Place for the day and allow the passengers enter Canada to visit the exhibits and public parts of the complex without being allowed to leave the complex and mingle with Canadians other than Immigration and center staff would that satisfy the requirements of the PVSA. It would be such a very heavy lift and would require concessions to Canada but I wonder if it's possible. Roy
  13. We've had lots of nice photos of Alesund and I'm only going to add a couple. I was there August 10, 2011 on the Prinsendam and we were there with the Ryndam: Alesund has the prototype for the modern lifeboat. This was at the Maritime Museum: Roy
  14. Adding Symphony 1/20/22 and 4/16/22, Serenity 3/11/22 I have started issuing “Bon Voyages” as cruises are a week away from starting. The list of people I include comes from the main Crystal Forums “Future Bookings” thread. The roll calls are semi-private while anybody can read posts on the main forum, so I do NOT transfer names from the Roll Calls to the Bon Voyages. If you want to be included in the Bon Voyage you must post your intentions on the on this thread: Future Bookings I expect most Yacht and River cruises will not generate roll calls.
