  8. I found one in May next year on the Apex (Edge's sister) to Spain and Portugal https://www.celebritycruises.com/itinerary-details/10-night-uk-spain-portugal-and-france-from-southampton-england?packageID=AX10U065&sDT=2020-05-10&cCD=CO Anyone up for that one?
  9. Happy Sunday Crazies, Thank you for sending that heat over here. It's gonna be in the 90's next week and climbing 🤦‍♀️. I so don't like that and I can imagine where you guys must be going through. I hope you get some relief soon. Only 18 days until........🛳️YAY!!!!!!!! Only2,5 weeks of work and then packing and stuff to get ready to travel. Hopefully my flights will be smooth. Still keeping my fingers crossed for your medallions! Hopefully the po will hold on to them until you're back Jan. Yours will probably be at the terminal Andi, at least I hope so. And if not, they have to get you new ones. Can't do without them on a medallion class ship. Right? I hope all you Crazies are keeping cool and doing fine. Have a great day everyone. Miranda
  10. We are supposedly on our last day of the heatwave; yesterday was 112 heat index and today was 114 but we have storms all around so I think the front is moving in. Does it say in the OceanReady app if your medallions have shipped? I don't think ours has - it only says "in progress". Let us know when you are coming in December and then if you have time to get together for a lunch or dinner we'll drive in! 19 days....

  13. Great news ... our Ocean Medallions have been shipped and their on the way.😄 Bad news ... we will be away when they arrive. Hopefully, the PO will hold them with the rest of the mail and won't send them back. 😕

  18. We are in the midst of the heatwave that’s taken over most of the country, and it’s only going to get worse. By Sunday, the feel-like temp will be around 110. I feel bad for Amanda who will be performing at a Faire this weekend, and those costumes are hot and heavy. I have a feeling they will shed some of those layers. We will be there cheering her on, so I hope there’s some shade. Miranda, that’s exactly how my oil bills work. If there is any left, I just roll it over to the next heating season. According to the Ocean Ready app, our medallions haven’t shipped yet. Maybe they will be waiting for us when we return from the beach on the 28th. Andi - David and I will be in Chicago a couple of days in December. Looking forward to sampling more of your great food! Please take care of yourself so you can fully enjoy the cruise.🙂
  19. MIAMI (July 18, 2019) -- Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Panorama, successfully completed its sea trials in the Adriatic Sea earlier this week in anticipation of its inaugural cruise from Long Beach, Calif., Dec. 11, 2019, becoming the line’s first new ship on the West Coast in 20 years. Currently in the final stages of construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Carnival Panorama had a full contingent of officers, technicians and engineers on board who thoroughly tested the ship’s sophisticated technical, mechanical and navigation systems. “Carnival Panorama is a wonderful addition to the fleet and she passed all of her maneuvers and tests with flying colors. We can’t wait to welcome guests aboard this beautiful ship,” said Carnival Panorama Captain Carlo Queirolo. As the newest ship in the fleet, Carnival Panorama will offer innovations such as the first Sky Zone trampoline park at sea and a new ChooseFun WaterWorks aqua park inspired by the line’s Chief Fun Officer, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, as well as popular onboard venues like Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse Brewhouse, featuring BBQ favorites created by Food Network star and longtime partner Guy Fieri and craft beers brewed on board. Carnival Panorama will also offer a variety of accommodation choices, including the tropics-inspired Havana area with colorful staterooms and its own Cuban-themed bar and pool; Family Harbor with extra-roomy staterooms and the Family Harbor Lounge; and luxurious Cloud 9 Spa staterooms with special amenities and privileges. Following an inaugural three-day voyage to Ensenada, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach Dec. 14. The week-long adventures will visit spectacular seaside resort towns including Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan.

  21. Happy Hump Day, Crazies! So we continue to bake in the heat - it has been around 90 for a good week now with a heat advisory in effect from Thursday Noon through Saturday. Heat indices will be over 105 degrees all three days.....be careful what you wish for, right, lol? Sunday was one of those 94 degree days but we didn't let it stop us from staggering around the Taste of Chicago in search of fabulous food. And we found it: great cheddar buns, mac & cheese, pizza, empanadas....and for dessert - a dream sherbet/ice cream mix in a cup. No way a cone would work - unless you would want to drink the sherbet out of the cone, ha! We did have a couple of cold beers and gallons of water as well. I do think I will stay indoors for this next stretch, though. Plus my hip did not appreciate my Sunday trek, so I need to give it lots of time to rest and heal. 22 days now, Miranda! Shall I waft some heat over your way or are you ok over there? We also pay a monthly budget amount, but they figure actual every other month and then raise or lower your monthly amount accordingly. We'll see what this hot stretch does..... Hope you are having a great time at the shore, Jan! Do something fun, Ray - that's an order! Hope you are doing ok, Jackie!
  22. SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (July 16, 2019) – Cruise guests ready to travel through time and space need to look no further than Princess Cruises newest ships – Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess – to experience Phantom Bridge, a world’s first game combining digital and physical elements for the ultimate immersive escape room. “Phantom Bridge, our newest Discovery at SEA interactive attraction, will offer our guests the exclusive opportunity to live a real-world, gamified experience with more than 700 different outcomes for the ultimate adventure,” said Denise Saviss, Princess Cruises vice president of entertainment experience. “Partnering with Farbound to deliver this unprecedented technology and world’s first interactive Mediascape Room further solidifies our commitment to share innovative and distinctive offerings to our guests.” On the Phantom Bridge, Princess Cruises guests will face immersive environments and show moments as they race to solve puzzles and travel to endangered time periods. The entire ship will transform and respond to guest actions, enveloping them in the story. Developed exclusively for Princess Cruises by Farbound, the leader in gamified real-life experiences, the debut of Phantom Bridge will feature the first MediascapeTM Room, the proprietary gaming and show-control system that runs the entire game play. “As Princess Cruises is committed to delivering a completely different and memorable experience for its guests, we are so honored to be working with them as Farbound’s partner. This new class of entertainment offerings will strengthen and hold Princess Cruises position as the leader in the travel industry.” said Tim Rheault & Steve Trowbridge, Co-Founders of Farbound. Phantom Bridge offers a range of activities including: Uncover the clues to solve the mystery – projection mapping, touch screen surfaces and hidden physical elements bring the environment to life as players race to uncover new clues and solve puzzles that will transport them to the next endangered time period. Blends the physical with the digital with immersive effects – players captain the ship and turn the physical wheel to navigate the vessel and watch as the simulation view changes. Lighting, sound and digital features disguised as physical ones are combined to create an immersive, realistic experience, every step of the way. But, players beware as they’ll never know when a new item could mysteriously appear and be the key to the next puzzle. Families can play together! – Phantom Bridge tailors the experience to players of all ages, heights and physical abilities so parents, kids and grandparents can all play together. Plus, with so many levels, time periods and puzzles more than 700 different outcomes are possible, which means players can come back and engage in Phantom Bridge time and time again since it’s never the same adventure. Phantom Bridge will also debut onboard the cruise line’s next ship, Enchanted Princess, summer 2020. Guests can try Phantom Bridge in the new Experience Center located on deck 18. The event lasts 23 minutes and can accommodate up to six people. For families looking for immersive, enriching and fun experiences while traveling, Princess Cruises has partnered with Discovery Inc. to create Discovery at SEA onboard programming that brings to life destinations and fan-favorite Discovery and Animal Planet shows. Guests can choose from exclusive, family friendly shore excursions and onboard activities like Stargazing at Sea. Younger cruisers, 17 and under, will also enjoy the recently renovated Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Centers.
