Hi Sid! I've been following your live reviews for a while now but wondering if you have a link to any you have done on the Escape? I have my first Norwegian cruise booked for January on her and would love some insight. Thanks!

... My reviews tend to be verbose, bordering on boring, so you've been warned. If backstories, 
planning, side stories, and digressions interest you, then pour yourself a drink, and continue reading...
 

 

Yes, please!  Looking forward to it all!  Thanks for bringing us along!

As it always seems to happen on the day before vacation... We got pounded pretty good here at the store right at the end of the day... Good news is that there are only a matter of minutes left! Next stop, a little side work and I'll probably pick up something quick and easy to eat, before getting the packing squared away...

A little less than two hours to go at work, and time is completely standing still... I think it actually went backwards there for a while... C'mon five o'clock!...

You'll get there Sid!!

I would cruise with him... In fact we're both cruising different ships the first week of December, so look out for a "Double Live Onslaught"... Mine on NCL and his on CCL...

Two years in a row I believe. For me it's because the Saints are playing  the thursday before two years in a row which means no game that weekend.

YAY I'm so excited for this review! I have 15 days before we head to Miami and board the Conquest, and this review will definitely make the time go by faster. Thanks Sid. Hope you have a great birthday cruise 🙂 

I should be on that sailing too!

 

Sorry to hijack your thread, Sid.  Happy sailing and Happy real Birthday!

It took me a little more than 2 hours, but my part time job is now done, and I'm about to bicycle home... First, I have to grab some beer, because my fridge is totally empty...

I feel like I have missed out on some amazing stories since this is the first thread of yours I’ve read! Definitely following along for this, sounds like a blast!

Apparently, I completely failed to consider the logistical ramifications of carrying a 12 pack of beer while riding a bicycle... I really didn't feel like having to go out again once I got home, so I bought 3 Fosters oil cans and stuffed them in my backpack... That equals a six pack of beer, so it'll have to do for tonight... I promise a significant increase in the quality of beverage p0rn starting tomorrow...

Aren't the 2 Surf and Turfs different?  Cagney is steak and shrimp and Ocean blue is steak and lobster tail

Another thing I've been experimenting with at home lately is called DHM... It's also one of the ingredients in the others, but this is just the pure stuff... (By the way, all of these items were bought from Amazon... Maybe they could give me a kickback as well...

I noticed the description of the product says “helps prevent hangovers” - I’m all for that but “reduces feelings of intoxication” - hell I paid good money to feel intoxicated and I don’t want it diminished 😜

If only you'd gotten the fanny pack I wanted you to get! 

 

ETA: Although a 12 pack wouldn't have in there either.

I just spent the last hour and a half looking for some of my swimming trunks that must've been lost in the move... I don't have all night to dig through every box, so I'm going to have to just make do with the ones I could find... Meanwhile, I did get the shirts wrapped up and ready to go... All the preparations I've been doing over the last two hundred days or so, and it all comes down to this... I wish I would have thought about the damn swimming trunks a week ago...

The directions on the bottle say to take after you're done drinking, so I suppose that you can get as drunk as you want and then use this... Like I said, all this is purely experimental to me...

You could order tonight and Amazon would probably deliver to hotel by Saturday.  Or wait until you're in a port and pick up a pair since you'll be wandering around.

The swimming trunks that I've been searching for all this time were in a compartment of my carry on suitcase... This is the kind of stuff that happens when you get old and also drink too much... On a side note: when I was at the store buying my beer tonight, I got carded, and had to dig through my backpack to find my ID... I tried to explain to the lady that I was almost fifty years old, but she wasn't ringing up my order until I produced the documentation...

For the past two or three weeks, I've been using CBD oil to help me with my sleep... Technically, this is still forbidden according to the cruise line, but I'm bringing it anyway... The worst that could happen is that they confiscate it... I'm pretty sure that with the number of passengers they have to deal with, that my tiny bottle of CBD oil will get through with no problem...
