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

Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, ATG said:

We sailed in an ATS on deck 10 once with our two (more or less) adult sons.  The balcony was great- quite a bit smaller than the one on deck 8, but nice.  The living room was rather cramped when all of us were there.  Our room steward was fabulous.  The genie was okay.  We actually got tired of eating so much food.  And none of us are big drinkers, the 3 evening diamond drinks plus a few others is enough.  We all agreed it was not worth it for us.  We are supposed to be on Liberty in May in the villa suite (4 bedrooms).  I don’t have much faith it will happen.

 

We are scheduled for Liberty as well. B2B end of April first of May. We have the drink pkg.

I'm guessing it won't happen as well. 

 

FWIW, that will officially cancel all three drink pkgs I bought from the $18 'sale'

Some pics from the Dive 'Competition'😉

Saw both days, (perk of the cabin) it always played out the same way.

Based on this, I decided the 10-22 would be best for Cordoba in a few days

That's all for tonight, I need to go look at the Census web site.

 

I wonder how much of the data is going to be obsolete in another month or two😥

You think maybe this was the long term plan for the glitch?

Let me be the first to say sorry for your loss if that happens.

I have enjoyed your postings, John. Adorable Bella is the kind of dog we want in retirement.

 

So sorry for the snubbing. These are crazy times and everyone is scared.  Things will most likely settle down so maybe your lovely condo in Cocoa Beach can remain yours.  I hope so - can’t beat the setting and view.

 

I am a native Gulf Coast Floridian who has lived elsewhere since 1990 because I can’t take Florida’s long, humid summers.  Hubby and I are looking to retire in less than 3 years and are considering the east coast of Florida for the snowbird season. We like parts of Melbourne (hubby worked in IT at Harris) and Melbourne Beach as both are small and seem unpretentious and we have a friend who lives there so instant social network.

 

It will be interesting to see were we all end up.  This too shall pass.

After the 1st week temperature has remained stable for all of us. *

 

Laura, Bell, and I are managing to coexist 24/7

 

Pat is working every day as part of a skeleton crew at a major Atlanta data center. He is deemed essential. 

 

@Ocean Boy my upper readings are consistently 1 degree lower than the lower readings😉

Day 6 begins of my self isolation. I miss my family, but I continue to be healthy and I am not about to risk that I could pass anything on to anyone.

 

John, your pictures are awesome ... and Bella is adorable.

 

All three of my kids still have jobs ... well, the oldest is with the Cleveland Clinic so that's a given. She is in CT and she says she scans 1-3 virus patients every day. She's the one I'm most worried about.

 

Stay safe and healthy everyone.

Well, it did pre date STAR.

I think this suite was designed as just a big family cabin, with a unique view

 

The balcony is indeed worth it, and yours was fantastic.  Balconies are very important to us as well, as we spend a lot of time out there.

Still no, we just can't eat and drink that much.

I'd rather go ala carte.  And it wasn't because it was 12 days. 

 

Royal treated the Pins very well in my opinion

 

And since you actually ARE a Pinnie...you of course are in the know.  😉

Sorry, but no. Just no. If you are attempting to express your utter disdain for Central Florida go right ahead. But first, know the difference between "ewe" and "ewww." An EWE is a female sheep. EWWW is a term made popular by Jimmy Fallon and is commonly used for feelings of disgust.  Got it, Sweetie? Those high end executives you hang out with on the yachts would expect you to know the difference. 

 

Thank you from myself, and all the rest of us that happen to love living here in Central Florida.  🙂

Just so we are clear.

 

In internet slang, a troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community.

Let me know if you need something. I can drive it down to you. You can throw a rope off your balcony and pull it up.

Glad you were getting provisions. I thought the beaches were closed.  Are some people allowed to be on the beach?
 

stay well.

Stayed on board.  Been to Malaga many times, including an embarkation from there several years ago.

I'm sorry too.  Don't think we ever crossed paths that I noticed.

Indeed, lately we seem to spend our before dinner time cocktails out there more and more....versus going to the lounges.  😉
