⭐Live Allure TA 🚢 March 1, 2020 - Time to rub the lamp 🧞

Recommended Posts

Have a safe and fun cruise, I know you will.  Love your stateroom, you will have a great view of the Aqua Shows.  I always enjoy your reviews and will be following along.  

Good luck to you and Laura in the casino.

Anthem Ta won the price war and April is better for me as I still work.

Remember It's me thats missing out on the balcony, wings and Kraken.

So this will be hard for me to read and feel happy.

I did give you a head start for your hotel in Barca

 

First off, I just can't say Barca. Makes me think of that 'other' football sport. 

 

We ended up with the Hotel Continental. 👍

But Patrick got the Casa Volver across the Rambla. It seems nice. Now I can review 2 hotels.😉

Speaking of the Continental,  I'm bringing a small stack of obsolete Spin to Win coins to pay for my stay.

 

Everyone who gets that is my kind of people.😎

I was considering this for 2021 because they're doing the exact same cruise then. All of those sea days in a row have me pretty concerned I'd get bored quickly though

Ok, I'll give you the Barca thing. I follow Real Madrid anyway.

Looking forward to the review on Casa Volver. That's a new one to me.

As for the coins, being Scottish I know exactly what you mean.

Our 2021 Harmony return is 14 days, and still only has one stop. But it comes further north. 👍

I get the Scottish reference, but that's not it. 

I was referring to a key element of a movie franchise.😉

John Wick??

 

I had originally thought it was a reference to the hilarious underground cult-favorite DS thread....

Sitting in my home airport waiting to fly to FLL to board Allure with you.

 

Here are some Allure aerial pictures from the past. These were taken after I debarked another ship in Miami so these aren't "live" pictures of Allure, she is still on her way back from her last sailing.

 

Our home for the next 12 nights:

Hopefully we can slide in behind and below that latest system heading across the pond.

Some random pictures I sourced via Google and the App

 

Our oversized balcony is the second from the bottom right

The kind of picture I typically shoot from our beach. We will have Allure for the summer of 21

Our app screen.  I just learned that if you touch the ship, our daily position shows up

Your view beats ours this morning. Another 12” on top of the last 2 days worth of snow. More today. UGH.  With no cruise in March this year we are living vicariously through you. 
 

Lucy wishing she had the life Bella.

On another ship the location in the app appeared to be estimated based on itinerary as opposed to live based on GPS.  Will have to see how this works on Allure this cruise.

Lucy looks like the cat that was rescued from the top of the Hydro pole in Toronto a couple days ago.  Owners still have not come forward to claim her

Looking forward to your review.  Love the cabin, we were in 8330 on Oasis and loved it all except for the very long walk in heels after one too many rum.

 

Bella is adorable as always.

 

Andrew, no cruise in March??

Rep Hockey playoffs, so we cancelled back in December.  We do have Hawaii in April so we aren’t left totally high and dry. 😉

Sure bet 😁

 

I think we all wish we had the life of Bella. Spa every 3/4 weeks and 7 nights a month at the “adopted” parents house, being spoiled. Not bad at all. 🙂

Some cabin information and location

 

This is 8330 on the other side, but it has more detail than the earlier one I posted

Up to 8 guests🤣🤣

It's a long way back there. I should get over 10,000 steps a day. That's a lot for me

These were the Royal Up offers. No idea why the Owners Panoramic wasn't listed

Oh that explains it.  Hawaii is on our bucket list. Will you be doing a “Live”.

 

Most probably want the life of Bella, John and Laura😀

I found this on one of the tracking sites. It shows going by the Azores, and the App mimics that position

After staying with Owen in this category I would not want more than 4 in here. Let’s try 7 other guests you might never want to see again. 😂
