Just reading my roll call for my NV cruise in Feb..........one couple said they are traveling with friends(different cabin) and their agent(I assume TA) told them they could bring their friends into the CL!! Laughing AND they booked a 9am flight home!!

I think they need a new agent....... Shocked

I suppose most of you have gone off to sleep by now, but we're back and almost unpacked. We did have a great time on the Journey, but i was ready to leave a day or two early. They kind of ran out of things to do, lots of small food items (like potatoes and peanut butter, two staples of our diet), and it wasn't exactly a deluxe experience. In spite of having 3 people in charge of keeping our cabin clean and functioning (a butler, head butler and bathroom guy), we've done better with many of our RCI and Princess cabin stewards.

So, what did I miss?

They started running low on good olives (kalamata, my fave) in the buffet salad bar after about a week. By the end of the cruise all they had were martini olives. Peanut butter, honey in packets and pickled ginger (for sushi and upset stomachs) also ran out, as did a lot of the fresh fruit offerings. On our last night in the steak house they had no baked or mashed potatoes. It was tragic, really.Rolling Eyes

I was expecting a much better product, but I wasn't so disappointed that I'm going to cancel our Quest cruise in May or anything. The itinerary is so cool that I won't have time to care about some of the stuff that drove me kind of nuts.

Welcome home Jean! After Ginny told me you were posting a diary on CC, I went over and read about your adventure! Sounds like you made the best of the problems you encountered.

What did you miss???????? Mostly you missed a lot of truly excited chatter as we remembered the first Polar Bear Express and started planning the reunion! I heard you would be joining us. I truly hope that is the case!

Well, Ray worked last night again, but I think he had an easy night. I haven't talked to him yet, but expect he'll be home shortly after 9:00 or so. We were expecting rain turning to ice, but when I let the dog out at 2am the temp on the outdoor thermometer was still in the mid30's. So hopefully they only had icing on the bridge decks and not all the roads!

Christmas tree must come down today!!! Everything else has been put away since New Years, but I will miss the tree, so it is always last...

Morning everyone!

Welcome Home Jean!

Been really busy, no computer time lately!

Michele, maybe you could just change the wording on the banner so we could just use one banner? I don't think we really need two banners. I think yours looks better, but I think I like the wording on mine, so everyone can use it. But can we keep the paws in somewhere?

Thanks!

Have a good Sunday everyone!

It's very foggy in Galveston this morning. Neither one of the ships that usually dock around 5 have made it back into port. Hope that does not happen next week.

Afternoon everyone................it was sunny at 8:30AM and now the clouds have arrived.............but it's supposed to be close to 50 again today. Crazy weather.

Hi Martha............It's always nice to hear from you even if it is on a hit and miss basis. Razz

Jill, have a wonderful cruise and an even better birthday.

Jean, sorry that they ran out of food...........but glad that you had a good time in spite of everything.

Chris, glad to hear that your daughter and her family may be going. What a great table we will have.

As far as the Mariner repo.............I thought the first segment was sailing at about 90% capacity from the reports that Paul was giving. I know that the second segment will be full because of the cheap cabin prices that were probably given to Brazilian TA's.

Folks really did get great upgrades and some are staying in their upgraded cabin for all three segments.

Well, laundry is calling and have some ironing to do............so will check back later.

HAPPY B-Day early Jill! Party

Jul, I just bought some water capsules, but I haven't tried them yet, so no recommendation. I found them in the protein powder/nutrion aisle. They are called Diurex. I read Jean's post about lots of folks swelling up on her cruise and I tend to get swollen ankles on cruises, so I bought a box to try out before my Feb trip...

I don't have the link to Jean's diary, but it was on the Azamara thread I think.

Well, I might not get the tree taken down today!!!! Ray called at a little before 9 and said he was on his way home and did I want to go with to the gym, so we did. I dropped him off when we were done and went for a tanning session. When I got home he was sound asleep on the couch! He didn't go to bed like I told him! Now I am sitting here on the computer and can't turn on the TV, take down the tree or call my Dad without waking him up! What was he thinking????????? Sheesh!
