  1. Interesting link @h20skibum! Thanks for sharing.
  2. $62.99 on our September 8 Wonder cruise. We’re not drinkers so we’re not buying. Refreshment and soda the same as yours. We already have soda at $8.99 from Black Friday.
  3. Bill, you’re not boring! We sailed with you and Gina and very much enjoyed your company! I love that you’re saying that you’re entering your GET OFF MY LAWN years! We already there although I’ve never thought of it that way! 😂 Can I please borrow that expression?
  4. We don’t sail Wonder until September so I’ve got time. I’ll be here when you’re ready.
  5. Hi Bill! Barry and I are now 92 days out from our Wonder cruise so I’ll be following your review with great interest. As you know from our Symphony cruise, we’ve always been traditional late diners. However, that has recently changed for us, at least for the first leg of our Allure B2B. While we’re able to keep our late dining time on the second leg, we had to switch to early dining on the first because the show times just didn’t work for us. I’m a night owl so late shows don’t bother me at all but DH Barry is an early bird and shows that don’t start until 10:30 just don’t work for him. The nay earlier show times were during our late dining time slot.We’ll be doing early dining on Wonder for pretty much the same reason. I know you’re on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary and we’re on Western but I’d still appreciate it if you would post your show schedule. I’d like to see how it compares to the one I have for the current Western sailing. We are in a Boardwalk Balcony on our sailing so I’m also wondering if they’re showing late night movies in the Aquatheater on nights where the Aquatheater show is not running and if so how loud is the volume on the movies. I’ve already told Barry to bring earplugs! I looked into moving us to an OV balcony but the sticker shock 😳 was well, really shocking! Maybe prices will drop some after final payment next week. 🤞🏻
  6. Twangster and Hoopster95, thank you both for the awesome pictures and videos! Norway has always been on my list of places I’d like to go, but usually a bit closer to the bottom of that list. I think Norway has just moved up a few spaces for me. It’s really beautiful there!
  7. @Hoopster95, you win the day for doing the Polar Plunge! Honorable mention goes to @twangster for providing the excellent photographic evidence. I thought I has posted this last night but it appears that I didn’t. 🤔 Oops! Better late than never. Now I’m off to see what you guys have been up since Imlast checked in ther.
  8. @twangster, when they told you that you would see birds on your excursion they certainly weren’t kidding! Beautiful photos from both @twangsterand @Hoopster95 again today. Thank you to both of you for sharing.
  9. Another spectacular day! Thanks, guys for the awesome pictures and videos!
  10. Thank you, Ashley for taking the time to write and share this very detailed and informative review with us. I got a bit behind for a while but I seem to have picked the right time to come back and get caught up - just as you were finishing up! I had a great time following along with you, your mom and your dad. Kudos to your mom for all the walking she did! My own mobility impairments seem to be different than hers but I know all too well how difficult all of those cobblestones and stairs must have been for her and I admire her perseverance in doing as much as she did but also the wisdom she showed in knowing when it was time for her to rest. Thank you again for doing this review. I had fun following along!
  11. I love your mooring line shot with the sea lion! I’ve seen a lot of mooring line shots and taken quite a few myself but I’ve never seen one with a sea lion! @Mr. IT, I think @Denversail is holding her own with this one! 😀
  12. White night and Italian night do not go well together for me! By the end of dinner my white outfit would be tomato sauce red and white! 🤣😂🤣
  13. I think I’ll try and find our WOW bands from our pre pandemic Symphony cruise and take them with us on Wonder. I saw them somewhere recently so I know we still have them. Now if I can just remember where……. 🤔😂🤣
  14. I love the detail in your review! I have food allergies too, and have always been pleased with how well my needs have been met. Can’t wait to read the rest.
  15. I hope it happens for you someday too. 🥰 I sure hope that wasn’t your suitcase rolling down the highway! W had trouble locating DH’s suitcase on our recent Allure cruise. The suitcase had its own Air Tag in it plus he couldn’t find his keys which had their own Air Tag. Turned out that he had put his keys in the suitcase which did show up but not after I’d called the parking lot to see if he had left them there. I guess nobody loading suitcases had an iPhone. 🤷‍♀️ On our Odyssey cruise openings for free times on North Star and iFly were showing up each morning so keep checking daily. We were able to walk on to free North Star one day by showing up and hoping for people who had reservations to no show. We got lucky and were able to get right on. Hope you can too.
  16. Please stop telling everyone how nice the space in a JS is! Prices are going up enough already so let’s not make them any more popular than they already are and drive up the prices even more! We’ve always been able to board in the Suite line when we’re in a JS. You probably would have been able to avoid some of the embarkation chaos that way.
  17. I’m glad we got one last turn on Allure before she gets amped even though it was a 4 day/3 day that went in circles in the Bahamas, not the Cozumel run on the 4 day that we had originally booked. We were cruising mainly for the ship, not the ports this time so we still had a great time in spite of the itinerary changes.
  18. Thank you @twangster and @Hoopster95! I’m enjoying all of the input and pictures from both of you. Impressive review!
  19. I’m sorry to see that your Flowrider boards didn’t make the baggage cut. Otherwise it sounds like a great cruise so I’m looking forward to following along.
  20. @niksmom630 the only black box I’m seeing is post #16. All the other pictures are beautiful! I used to be afraid of heights but at some point in my life with no effort on my part to get over that fear I realized that I was no longer afraid and that I actually enjoy heights now. 🤷‍♀️ I have no idea how or why that happened but I’m glad it did! I would be right there on that giant Ferris wheel and up that Space Needle ASAP!
  21. We sailed Symphony in April 2019 which turned out to be our last cruise before the pandemic. It was also the cruise when we sailed with @BillOh and Gina. We had a great cruise! Loved the ship! I love your idea about an excursion to visit the ship next door! Depends on what ship it was though. I’d definitely do an excursion to see Icon!
  22. I thought it was bad when our April 26 3 day Allure cruise was chartered. At least I was able to switch to the 3 day following the 4 day that was meant to be the 2nd leg of our Allure B2B and even keep the same room. @sandebeach, I hope you’re able to find options that will work for you.
  23. Watched your sailaway this evening on the Port Canaveral Webcam. Remembered to turn it on just in time. I was surprised to see Symphony docked at the Carnival dock but fun to watch Wonder sail past Symphony. Hope you and Gina have a great cruise! Here’s a screenshot of your sailaway from Port Canaveral Webcam. http://www.portcanaveralwebcam.com
