Happy Saturday, how exciting you have another cruise booked and a 12 day Panama Canal one, so extra special.  Your positive and fun posts have made me smile each day, thank you

Excellent idea, Sandy. A book club without a book - I like that. Not to mention More Musings from Ms. Mary - which will be the title of my next thread and that could happen January 2021. It seems Aprille has booked us on the Encore out of Miama on a round trip Panama cruise - 12 days no less. I will definitely stay with this thread but I have made some new rules for myself. We can talk about that tomorrow. In the meantime feel free to talk amongst yourselves and start remembering funny cruise stories. You are pretty good with words youself Sandy and even better with ideas. Cheers right back atcha my Canadian friend.


Am I the only "More Musings from Ms. Mary" fan that has now looked up the details on this January 2021 Encore sailing and considered booking to cruise with Ms. Mary? Oh, my... I hope I am not being creepy! 🙈

It seems like I have been on a 'cruise high' for the past 12 days. I enjoyed it immensely but I sorta crash landed last night. For the first time since I got home I was totally exhausted. And all the bad news about this coronavirus thing didn't help. I sat in my recliner, in my jammies, holding my Kindle that I really didn't want to read - and pondered. I wanted to keep posting but to be honest this thread had sorta taken over my life for 12 days. I decided if this thread showed up on page 1 again I would post some more - and it did and I will - but with some self imposed guide lines for myself.

 

First I will stay on topic - Aprille patiently explained that the topic is cruising on NCL. That's pretty confining don't you think? But I will try and when I get off topic I will type fast as I can and get back on topic. That's the best I can promise on that subject.

 

I guess we will see how I do with "first" before I go on to 'second' - full disclosure - I haven't even come up with 'second' yet. Let's do it one step at a time.

 

I've definitely decided not to tell you about my attempt to program a TV remote. I can pretend it's because it's not on topic but the real reason is because I don't come out looking good in that one. I may or may not talk about pickles some time in the future - I can cheat on that one and it would be on topic - but just barely. It's not a great story so I am going to start with 'my favorite souvenir' but not until tomorrow.

 

I have lots of words but not enough words to describe how you people - with your kind comments and encouragement - have made my heart sing.

Oh Mary...take your time...your fans will wait:-)  You are a breath of fresh air in my life and I think maybe you should take your 'musings' to another level.  I guess Aprille is right (damn kids:-) and maybe another venue might be better only because I think a lot of us here aren't just interested in your cruising.  We're enjoying you writing about your everyday life & beyond.  Whatever else happens...please don't stop writing.  If you think about it....it's not unlike your scrapbooking.  It's putting history to pages. 

So are we off to the Floataway Lounge?  I've never been there but I'm game!

Yes Sandy - we are off to the Floataway Lunge. I will head over there in the morning and start a thread - and of course the title will be More musings from Ms. Mary. I will come back over here and post a link. Or maybe I will have Aprille post a link. I'm relieved and happy to finally make this decision.

Probably not necessary to post a link because if I found it I'm sure everyone else could too.

Well, I have binge read this tonight, and stayed up well past my bedtime. I just couldn't stop reading, and laughing and hoping that your next cruise was one I have booked. I will now go to find you in your new home Ms. Mary. Thank you for being such a delight, and for sharing your *glass half full* stories with all of us! 💗

I never heard of the Float Away lounge until I read your posts. I like Sid's reviews too. Will have to check him out on the Float Away Lounge.

@sunsetsoon here's the link for your new thread for the others....

 

 

I am posting to bump this thread up to page 1 in case some of my friends are still looking for me. We are meeting in the Floataway Lounge now.
