  1. Lots of damage that will take some time to repair has made me cancel one of my upcoming cruises on Bliss. Luckily, final payment date was extended so I was able to cancel without a penalty and I had booked it with a $250 Cruise Next Certificate that will be returned to me but now I won't be able to use it by the date it expires on April 23, 2022. But at least all I will lose is the $150 I paid for the certificate. I have several other cruises booked that are past final payment and I can't cancel them so I had to choose this one to cancel. I had 14 cruises cancelled on me since the pandemic so I booked a lot to make up for it.
  2. Yes, I had Fernando pick me out a couple bottles of good sipping tequila. I missed seeing if Tropicana was still open with the new proprietor, just forgot. It was HOT and I was tired so we didn't stroll down the melancon too far.
  3. When you go to get them be sure they give you the Platinum/Diamond pin with the ship name on it. They gave me the Gold one with no name on it and I didn't notice till I got home.
  4. I collect the Carnival pins that we get for being platinum. All the others I have had the ships name on it but the one I got on Mardi Gras just had Carnival and the year. Disappointing. Did anyone get a pin that said Mardi Gras on it?
  5. If you are expecting their hurricanes to taste like the ones from Pat O'Briens you will be very disappointed. They taste nothing alike.
  6. OK, I can do a church joke too........ A sobbing Ms Murphy approaches Fr O'Grady after mass.He says: "So what's bothering you?"She replies: "Oh, Father, I've terrible news. My husband passed away last night."The priest says: "Oh, Mary, that's terrible. Did he have any last requests?""Certainly father," she replied. "He said: ""Please Mary, put down that damn gun."
  7. I just got off the Mardi Gras last week and we just walked off the ship as usual, got in a taxi right at the port and he drove us to the Krazy Lobster for $4 each. (2 for $8). There were plenty of taxis waiting to bring people back to the ship for the same price. No one even mentioned approved taxis or approved tours. We spent some pleasant time at the Krazy Lobster then I went to Fernando's store and bought a couple bottles of sipping tequila to bring home. I wanted to pass by Tropicana to see if it was still operating with the new people but forgot about it. (too much tequila)
  8. Last week on the Mardi Gras we were allowed to go on our own there and we saw no sargassum at Crazy Lobster or most other places.
  9. I was there last week. I used to have to walk out the port and down the street away to get a cheap taxi but now they are letting the taxis into the port eliminating the long walk but the charge is $4 a person.
  10. I booked a cruise on the Koningsdam for 11-14-21 and weeks later booked it for the previous cruise on 11-7-21. Our original cabin wasn't available so we had to book a different cabin for the first cruise. Three questions. First, do we have to get tested between cruises and if so, how or where? Second. Do we have to get off the ship between cruises with all our suitcases or can the room steward move our suitcases to our new cabin? Third. Do we have to check in again on the docks between cruises?
  11. To anyone who is thinking of forging a vaccination card, 2 people were caught in Hawaii and jailed and given $5000.00 fines. Two others entered Canada with forged cards and were arrested and given $10,000.00 fines each. Penalties in some locations are even higher. Many places have ways of verifying cards that they do not make public to keep offenders from finding a way around it. Personally, I believe that anyone who risks exposing thousands of others to this disease deserves even worse punishment.

  12. It's wise to remember how easily email can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences.Consider the case of the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.Unfortunately, when typing her address, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:Dearest Wife, Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.P.S. Sure is hot down here.
  13. A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural North Alberta. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it." The old farmer Peter replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here." The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial lawyers in Canada and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own." The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Alberta. We settle small disagreements like this with the 'Three Kick Rule.' The lawyer asked, "What is the 'Three Kick Rule'?" The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up." The lawyer quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom. The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel-toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees! His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth. The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie. Summoning every bit of his will and remaining strength the lawyer very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old son-of-a- bit@&! Now it's my turn." The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck."
