Right, she gets to San Pedro tomorrow night, and moves to Long Beach Tues morning maybe? I’m a ‘lil sad that John Heald won’t be sailing, but he has to go home to speak at his best friends funeral, which is much more important that being at work.

John recently posted that he won't be on the first cruise. He has to go home for the funeral.


The funeral of his best friend definitely takes priority to work.  I am sure the past few days have been extremely stressful for him.

I would not know, and you have far more experience at LB than I do, lol.  I've sailed out of there once. 😊  You mentioned that you had a 1PM boarding time?  Where did you see that?  

I misspoke, I should have said I have a 1pm arrival time. But in my experience at LB, if you arrive at your assigned time you generally bled pretty quickly. You can find your arrival time if you look at your cruise documents on the carnival website 🙂

Boarding has always been quick at LB. This is my first cruise as Platinum, so I have priority tags, but I checked in very late, so the boarding time on my boarding pass says 2pm. I know that it's inconsequential because of the priority thing. I'm slightly disappointed about not getting to sail with Mr Heald, but I totally understand why he won't be there. Even though this is such a short cruise, it's shaping up to be one for the ages!

Remember, the time on your Boarding Pass is check-in time, not boarding time.

Thanks, that's true. 🙂

I have  friend from my days working aboard Pride of America who works as a trainer/QA for the company that runs the Spa on most major cruise lines. She and I have been planning on getting a drink together and catching up, since she will be sailing on the 3 nighter. Well, she informed me last night that she'll be leaving Panorama tomorrow as she has to go to another ship at the last minute. Out of the goodness of her huge heart,  she was able to get a few Thermal Suite passes for the cruise, so I'll definitely show you guys what this all entails. On my prior cruises I've never set foot in the spa, so I'm really looking forward to this. @Jamman54 has several great reviews that mention the thermal suite that I've been reading today to get ready. The Panorama arrived in LA this morning!! It's getting closer!!

Last work day until Saturday! I am SO friggin' excited about this sailing. The Steakhouse and JiJi's managers onboard are awesome. They helped me re-arrange my reservations, so we'll be dining at JiJi's tomorrow night, and the Steakhouse on Thursday. I plan on following as much of the naming ceremony as I can from my desk today, and then I'm off to the airport bright and early tomorrow. I plan on being at the port by 10:30-10:45am and I'll start posting pics soon thereafter.

Exciting! My sisters and I considered this cruise but it was a bit too pricey for us. And as it turns out, my daughter is getting married in three weeks so the timing would have been awful.

HEFFY2: I have a favor to ask, can you check in the coffee shop (Blue Java) if they have coconut or almond milk available for their drinks?

Thank You in advance.

Maybe the internet isn't working on the Panorama, I was expecting our LIVE review! Darn 😞 

 

Hopefully it will start tomorrow.  I'm so excited!

I'm such a goodie-two-shoes rule-follower, that going against the arrows on the track made me tense up, but I truly appreciate the video, @Saint Greg. I'll show it to my son. We'll be onboard for his senior year spring break in March.

I have a feeling that video maker and me would get along just fine.
