  1. Sounds like I need to check out that blog... We may have to be vaccinated to sail Crystal, but on Cruise Critic you can be any gender you want people to think you are! 😉
  2. The term “social distancing” is actually an oxymoron when you stop to think about it. 🤔 So if you want to keep spaced safely apart from others at muster, just distance. There’s nothing “social” about it at all....
  3. If I was as handsome as Redford in that movie, I’d dress like that, too.
  4. Very much enjoying your sharing the voyage with us. Like your writing style and sense of humor! Let the party continue....
  5. Construction began in 2013 on the Salesforce Bldg. It opened in 2018.
  6. Remember them well (sans affection) from Mille’s 2019 eastbound Transpacific. They belong in a pre-school. Perhaps the uncomfortable furniture was intentional. Don’t get too cozy in the Retreat lest you keep ordering included alcohol and overstay your welcome vs. the former non-inclusive Michael’s Club in the olden days.
  7. With Crystal, I believe the pre-cruise offers come through your TA, so you have no choice but to accept the offer through them. Someone will surely correct me if I’m wrong on this.
  8. Correct, I was only referencing upgrading on board at embarkation where there is no involvement on your TA’s part. Not to be confused with the pre-departure upgrade offer you received, and is orchestrated through your TA.
  9. What a terrific menu, Kenz. I’d select the Foie Gras, Bluefin Tuna, and The Box! As to the Dungeness Crab, the “cultured butter” is an obvious reference it’s from cows from California...
  10. YES! Order the lobster tacos tacos and black cod!
  11. New Years Eve 2018/19 on Serenity 822EB803-16B7-48CE-93A2-75B997A9CCA4.MOV
  12. 5 people have 13 spouses?!? Was last week a polygamist’s convention?!? 😱😎
  13. I can’t comment on the mattress topper, but I can confirm Crystal will go a long way toward trying to make you comfortable. I’d have your Travel Agent request a topper for you. I sailed two two years ago with my sister. She’s 4’11” and has fibromyalgia, back and neck issues (As her brother, I’m a towering inferno at 5’5”, and, yes, I’m a basketball star). Crystal located a small footstool so her feet could touch the floor when seated on oversized furniture. It was small enough she could carry it in a medium-sized handbag everywhere she went around Symphony. It was a lifesaver.... Ask, and ye shall receive.
  14. I’m so glad you booked a B2B so you can hopefully put the last 36 hours behind you and now truly enjoy yourself.
