Live virtual Transatlantic on the Regal

Recommended Posts

How was the virtual flourless chocolate cake?  We were supposed to be on this cruise.

The flourless chocolate cake is always delicious.   I can't forget the goat cheese soufflé .  Since this is a virtual  cruise, I won't gain any weight.

Loved the sailaway video!!

 

Great , my natural inclination was to film from the aft balcony as on a previous Regal cruise . In that video the prop wash drowned the Love Boat theme so I went against our nature and went with the crowd around the pool in order to pick up the theme on video .

Agree with Orangefan and any weight gain will be a virtual weight gain . We usually refer to our increasingly tighter clothes as Ocean air shrinkage .

awesome.  I have been in aft suite but not on Royal class ships.  

 

I've been in an aft suite but it wasn't my cabin. I did eat some dang good M&Ms in the suite though. 😄

Well, heck, since in reality I'm working twelve hour days at the Emergency Operations Center five days a week, I believe that we'll be checking in with you! 😄

If you guys are going count me in. 😁

Last night's dinner

We had requested traditional dining , first seating as we like to get to know our waiters and it was located aft , directly below our cabin . However, we were assigned anytime dining which means we can choose from the Symphony or the Concerto both located Midship .

 

Menu

Tony,

It's great to have you and your lovely wife in the stateroom next to ours! Cocktails on the balcony at 5?

Thanks so much!  Love the IC, don't go to buffet area, eat breakfast and lunch at IC.  Older ships, I take Plaza deck cabin, Royal class Emerald deck, for the convenience to be close to Decks 5, 6 & 7! 🙂

The Cruise Critic M&G at Club 6 . Conducting our meeting was the dynamic duo of Cruise Director Martyn who hails from the UK  and Deputy Cruise Director Simone from Brisbane .

 

IMG_7387_zpsjd52cui9.jpg

 

The format was mostly Q&A but when Simone saw my imposing camera she displayed her cheeky side by suggesting that I photograph "her best side" .

I had originally cropped the photo for a close up of Simone and had almost forgotten that the lady on the right had a funny reaction seen here in the uncropped version .

Sailaway was fun... nice sunset too.

 

Met our dinner companions... a Dentist from Long Island, a pair of retired teachers (sisters - i'm not really sure which is the older one) and a couple our age from California who seem to be in the wine business - not sure if that's production or just consumption.

 

Skipped the show - we usually do and grabbed a drink at the wheelhouse bar. Not sure about that - we often end up at Crooners for the music, but first night is often too noisy... we'll see.

 

Just woke she-who-must-be-obeyed up from her post-breakfast nap for lunch before her afternoon nap. We were both busy at work last week and naps to recharge the batteries are the 1st order of business. Missing the fur kids.

  Thank you for posting pictures of people outside by the pool and in shorts and t-shirts. I went for my walk a  little while ago with jeans, turtleneck, sweater, winter jacket, gloves ,mask and still cold. Although it was sunny, the temp was in the 30's !

   It is more active on this virtual roll call, than my other roll calls.

  Thanks for being so creative. I also like the Regal and have been on the ship 6 times.  Most recently on b2b  on the U.S. inaugurals on the Sky Princess.

Will do Gracie . Yes it is and we'll be having a few meals out there with the sunsets . We had a similar wrap balcony on HAL that was fully covered .
