  1. Ours have, as well. My teacher daughter just informed me that she got the call. No school for at least two weeks. They have Spring Break a week from tomorrow. Had already cancelled their travel plans.
  2. My husband had an appointment with his cardiologist around the middle of February. He was asked to fill out a questionnaire of his whereabouts in the last month. They were especially concerned about any recent travel to Europe. Hopefully, with Spring Break for both colleges and school kids coming up, in addition to some schools closing and making the vacation longer, the virus spread will lessen. I noticed a couple of the college websites are telling students to stay away from the campus if they have been on a cruise in the last 14 days.
  3. Was it Walton Goggins (Unicorn) and Betsy Brandt (was on LIP, and now on Unicorn.)? Two of my favorite shows! We saw her, as well. Several years ago, we actually had some famous entertainers. So famous that their names escape me. 😁 Oh yes, I believe it was John Davidson and Charo. Back in the day when my grandparents cruised, they would be among the famous quite often. That's when cruising was the life and there were very few ships.
  4. I would be more worried about a travel agency (we book through one) than I would be about the cruise lines going bankrupt. DH and I had this conversation last night. We decided should we book a future cruise anytime soon, that we would probably book direct with the cruiseline this time. πŸ˜‰
  5. Sharon - My sister-in-law made a large coaster out of hers. Not sure what they are mounted on...maybe cork. She keeps it near her cooktop for resting pots, spoons, etc. MARYVB - That's neat! πŸ˜‰
  6. Wanted to post an update! I copied ellbelle idea and put some of my HAL tiles in 3 shadow boxes. I plan to line them up on a wall in my Guest bath when we build. I purchased the 3 wood shadow boxes at Michaels for less than $9 each. Loved the cream linen backdrop. Blends with the tile borders pretty well! BTW-Mine all have cork backings.
  7. Have friends that have booked this river cruise line and will be sailing on their newest ship. I have never heard of the line. Can anyone enlighten me?
  8. It's been a while since we were on a Solstice Class ship. We use to love booking the hump/extended balcony cabins. They were classified as 1A's. Has that classification changed?
  9. I loved the idea of using the tiles in a shower. We are building a new home. But then I started thinking about when we are gone, and a new owner comes along, the tiles would mean nothing to them and probably be pulled off and discarded. Our children may like to have them someday. They also love cruising. I have several older tiles that belonged to both my parents and grandparents. I think I will take both their set of tiles, and our set, and try the shadow box idea. I could do one box with each set. Thank you for the great idea, ellbelle! BTW - No need to have Hobby Lobby or Michael's custom frame these for you. All sizes of shadow boxes can be purchased very inexpensively at both places, especially using a discount coupon or waiting until they are half off. I have framed unusual silver pieces myself using sticky Velcro to secure. Of course, the tiles weigh more and would require a heavy duty adhesive glue. πŸ˜‰
  10. After recently spending several nights in the hospital, that's the truth! I'd rather be stuck on a cruiseship, as long as it was a balcony that I could open. I cannot imagine what it would be like in an Inside stateroom. Here is an interesting view from a physician that lives in my area. He is currently on the Diamond. I don't know him, but the doctor has done business with my husband. Great attitude! πŸ˜‰ https://www.wjhl.com/news/local/coronavirus-quarantine-tri-cities-couple-on-vacation-stuck-on-cruise-ship-off-japans-coast/
  11. We did receive our shore excursion papers ahead of time, but can't say for certain just how far ahead. It was in plenty of time to research and pick out our excursions. Once we boarded the Viola, we handed in our choices ASAP. Excursions fill up fast!!!
  12. Yes, Messenger will work on WiFi, but you don’t need to use WiFi Calling to activate. Just connect to the ships WiFi. 😁
  13. I am not sure why the bacon is presented as hanging. Reminds me of a hanging pig. 😞 In other establishments, or when I make it at home, it's served on a platter. Eat with a fork and a knife on our plates.
  14. That's wonderful, and rightfully the thing to do! Had that happened to us, my DH would not have been happy, at all! Did you go take your showers in the fitness center/locker rooms?
