  1. Deb, thoughts and prayers going out for you, Cathy, and Jim. 🙏❤️ Please take good care of yourself so you stay healthy.
  2. I want one of these for our guest bathroom! Not that we’re having guests in right now, but just in case we do, they will think twice before they use any of our hard gained toilet paper 🧻!
  3. @broberts, thanks 🙏 for your reply. I already knew about clicking on the blue star to get to the first unread post and the list count to get to the last post. I’ll experiment with the date/elapsed time to the right of the link and see if that works. Meanwhile, I did find that clicking on the blue dot that indicates an unread post will open the thread right at the beginning for me. That’s fine so long as the thread has not been previously been opened by me. I’ve always just clicked on the thread title to open a thread without the pop up appearing. I guess I should just get over being so annoyed about the pops that others may find useful. Definitely a first world problem.
  4. Every time I click on a link to open a topic, a pop up appears showing me part of the first post and an option to see the most recent post. I find it annoying. I want to go directly to the actual thread, not the pop up. How can I stop this pop up from appearing every single time I open a topic? Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. Just found this thread and read it beginning to end. Well, ok, I cheated and skipped to the end early on so I already knew there was a happy ending! I couldn’t stand the suspense! Then I went back to page 3 and read the whole thing. What an amazing thread! @Kindergirl I am so very happy that your parents are home safe, and that you were able to be there to greet them. @Copper10-8 what a wonderful thing you did for Deb and her parents. I’m not on the HAL board all that much, but in the little time I’ve spent here, I’ve seen the kind of man you are, so it didn’t surprise me at all when you jumped in to help. There are too many others here on this thread for me to even think I’d remember to thank all of you, so I’ll just post a blanket thank you 🙏 to all who helped here in whatever way you could. I do not want anyone left out. You’re all awesome, each and every one of you! You guys all made my night with the the way you supported Kindergirl in her efforts to get her parents home safely. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ to all of you!
  6. @scubacruiserx2 hope your upcoming TA goes as planned. We were supposed to be heading south for a week in Key West at about the same time as your sailing. I’m sad to say that trip is not happening this year. We’re going to try again next year. Hopefully, we will be able to make it happen, as we have been wanting to get there for quite a while. 🤞🏻 Koningsdam docked at Amber Cove. A new friend I made in Curaçao. She was just a bit shy.
  7. Good job, Kendra! I guess she really does take after you. 😀. I would have thought you would be the one who would already have something else picked out. So, details,please! What cruise are you going on? We aren’t planning anything else until after things settle down. It was so hard for me to cancel Key West. I don’t want to go through that again. Hopefully, our October 4 Harmony cruise will be a go. Hoping to do Key West at about the same time next year, late April, May, maybe June. Not booking yet though.
  8. John, beautiful picture of the Disney girls! We started our cruise addiction on Disney Dream. One 3 day cruise on the Dream and we were totally hooked! Never looked back! We had some wonderful sailings on both of those ships in your picture before we decided to branch out a bit and try some other cruise lines. We love all of them, but Disney Dream was our first, so she will always have a special place in our hearts. ❤️
  9. Kim, I just saw this on the Royal Caribbean press release page. I immediately thought of you. Here’ the link. I attached a screenshot below. https://presscenter.rclcorporate.com/press-release/89/royal-caribbean-extends-global-suspension-of-cruisingrnnbsp/?fbclid=IwAR1eRONtBZhEJ1-0zsrpXRbYN1mJnWFuofRsFWd9yla_OMnZwvbFrEYX-jA I get how you’re feeling. We just cancelled our long awaited Key West land trip today. I have been wanting to go there for the longest time. We got the perfect schedule for us, and got into the resort we really wanted after years of trying. When I heard the Keys were being completely shut down for a minimum of two weeks, I knew our plans were out the window. Maybe next year. I hope that once cruising is able to resume, you will be able to get a good price on an Oasis class ship. I’m sure you and your family will love it as much as we do.
  10. @Blizzard54, condolences on the passing of your brother. I am sorry for your loss.
  11. We’re booked on Harmony October 4,2020. I usually like to pay the cruise down month by month, but not this time. I’ll wait until final payment is due in July. Hopefully we will know more by then. As @A&L_Ont mentioned earlier in this thread, we’re also concerned about what will be going on in the islands we’re scheduled to visit. However, since Harmony is an Oasis class ship, I’m sure we will be able to find plenty to do even if we just stay on the ship 🛳. I’m far mor concerned about the land trip to Key West that we have scheduled at the end of April. It will be a lot more difficult for us to reschedule that trip than our Harmony cruise. Meanwhile, we are holding off for now planning any trips for 2021 so we will have more flexibility in case we have to reschedule either of our upcoming 2020 trips. It’s not easy for this OCD planner to not be planning!
  12. Here, I was worried about our cruise in OCTOBER on Harmony! Your Oasis cruise should be interesting if it does sail. You’re right, the ship should be very well sanitized for you if you do sail! We have a land trip to Key West at the end of April. When this coronavirus pandemic first started, I thought for sure the threat would have passed by then. Now, not so sure. It will be really hard to reschedule, especially with everyone else trying to do the same thing. I think it’s wonderful how we get to know each other here. I’m sure I feel that know you and the rest of your family better than you know me, so thank you for the “friends” comment! ❤️ Maybe one of these days we’ll actually get to meet IRL. How’s your foot healing? Have you been able to see the foot & ankle specialist you mentioned a while back?
  13. Not really a joke. The toilet paper 🧻 aisle at our local Winn Dixie yesterday afternoon! Thanks for the thread, Ken, and thanks to everyone for all the jokes. You all made me laugh 😂! Badly needed during these difficult times.
  14. @John&LaLa , @twangster , glad you’re safe at home! You’ll certainly have some interesting stories to tell for years to tell. Hope everyone stays healthy now that you’re home. I know there were a few others on this thread who were either cruising with you on Allure or on another ship. I hope they will check in here and let us know when they’re back home, and give us an update on their journey.
  15. I guess even though this cruise is over, I still need to follow the rest of the journey.
