  1. This thread is awesome! I'm laughing out loud...thank you Blazerboy for keeping this going!
  2. This looks like the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC!!! Gorgeous!
  3. LOL - it is the Coco Cay post Perfect Day, with all the bells and whistles. smplybcause, thanks for your response!
  4. Hello all - I am seeking information for possible first time Norwegian cruises. My family has done Celebrity and Royal Caribbean and we love Coco Cay. For those who have visited both private islands, how do they compare? Any photos of Great Stirrup Cay? We have a 12 and 9 year old. Any info will be greatly appreciated. TIA!!!!!
  5. We will be overnight in Lisbon pre-cruise and are looking for a hotel recommendation. And any tour company recommendations, as well. The ship is actually overnight in Lisbon before we sail, so we will have two 1/2 days there all together. It's a first-time visit for both of us, so any recommendations will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  6. I sailed on one of the Edge preview cruises last December and a week cruise this past January, both in the IV, which I would not choose to do again, as I prefer the traditional balcony. The main point for me is that the Edge (and Apex) offer a different cruising experience, which anyone is welcome to try, or return to time and time again. But I see no reason to take a successful class of ship (Solstice class) and try to turn them into something they are not, nor were ever designed to be. Let those of us who love the S-class be able to travel on those ships as they are, and those who love the Edge class can travel on those.
  7. Hi Norris! I was away for work, but had made a note to check for your GSJ upon my return, so here I am! So excited to take the journey with you. I have never been to the Fjords, but by the time you are done I know I will feel like I was there right alongside you and Carol.
  8. Norris, thank you for another wonderful review. I have already made note of your three upcoming cruises, so I can follow your GSJ afterwards. I did a 12 nite Silhouette cruise in May 2014 (with my cruise buddy, Carol, not to be confused with yours!) to the Adriatic & Med. The Adriatic was so calm, it looked like glass - I remember that I was actually disappointed not to feel like I was on a ship! Croatia was a huge surprise for me - who knew there would be palm trees in Split? You will have a wonderful time, and I cannot wait to relive my trip through your eyes (and photos). Laura
  9. True, but to an 8 year old, it’s the first “lazy river” they will be able to experience!
  10. Hi all, My family will be on Anthem of the Seas in April with two young girls and I was wondering if there is a height requirement for the lazy river? I had heard that there was one but the person couldn't remember what it was, but said it was measured from the shoulder? I thought someone here would know! Thanks! Laura
  11. Hi Norris, I am once again enjoying your GSJ and Carol's insights of your fabulous trips. And since my office is closed today for the holiday, I have been able to catch up! I especially enjoy how grateful and appreciative you both are of the places you visit, the people you meet, both on the ships and in the ports, and that you never take anything for granted. I wish all travelers traveled the way you do! I feel very fortunate for the trips I have been able to do, and can relate to how you travel. I am fortunate to be going to the Galapagos and Machu Picchu with Celebrity in June, which is a bucket list trip. And I'm taking my Mom to Spain/Portugal on the Infinity next year, which has been a dream of hers. To tell you the truth, when one of my friends mentioned going to Cuba, I initially thought "no", but after reading your review, I am putting this on my wish list of places I would like to visit, including Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Alaska (love your reviews), Polynesia, Hawaii.....the list goes on and on. I've already marked my calendar to check for your review of the Norwegian Fjords in September. Thank you for your wonderful photos and your entertaining writing style - truly a joy to read your reviews!
