  2. Happy Sunday Crazies, I am so glad to see you're all all right. There's another tropical storm hitting Bahama's,, like they didn't have enough yet. Last week Dorian and Gabriella gave us rain, but that was all fortunately. This weekend it's warm again so no complaints here. Next week is gonna be cooler, but hey in Fall you can expect that right? Andi, good to see you're MRI stuff went well. How's your hip thing doing? Mine is completely gone fortunately. It was just a wrong move working out. Won't do that anymore (I think, still a blond). Jan, nice to see there's gonna be another group cruise next year. I would really love to join, but it's not gonna work for me. Falina, maybe we'll find one that will work for you too someday. Maybe 2022. We'll keep trying. Ray, hope you're fine. That also goes for you Shari! And of course for all Crazies. Have a great day, Miranda
  3. Welcome, Floridajourney! Looks like you are cruising in November - where are you headed....and on what line and ship? We love to share our cruise news - you never know when someone has great advice or will have questions for you when you return.
  4. Happy Weekend, Crazies! The warmer weather has returned and I am lovin' it, although it did come with some rough weather on Thursday: my phone made this awful sound and lo and behold it was a tornado warning...then our tv screen went total red and a visual and verbal warning came across it; then the sirens started going off outside....it wasn't looking stormy, so we tuned to ABC News and there it was on their radar, heading our way. So we started throwing stuff out of the closet down here so that we could at least stand in it (we have a raised ranch, so not a full basement) and just as we got it cleared out enough....they called it all off. 😂I am very glad they did, but it was kind of humorous - us running around like chickens and poof! It was like a pin popping a balloon...all of a sudden the twister just lost it's mojo and petered out. We did end up with over 2 inches of rain, however, and now the parks by the river are flooded. Jan - Our 2020 cruise definitely is not for someone who loves port days...but I'm still hopeful Norm and Dana will come with. Six sea days to me means I can bring twice as many books to read, lol! So glad your BBQ was a success. Falina - I probably should know this, but where are you going on your November 2020 cruise? The planning is so much fun! Kevin - We did go out to see the moon last night. It seemed small, but very bright. I bet at 9700 feet it was bee-yoo-tiful. I am a moonwatcher....I do love seeing it up there in the dark sky... Nothing officially planned this weekend but lots to do to get ready for our big luncheons next week. I have to admit I will be kind of glad when September is over...my calendar is not quite as full for October....yet.... Hope everyone is doing something fun!
  5. 👩‍🚀 Think this will work....or this one? ⛑️ It already has the first aid sign on it. 🤕😅
  6. Last week
  7. Everybody enjoy that full harvest moon tonight! 🦇 I'll be in the mountains at 9700 ft so it should be bright! 😎
  8. MIAMI, Sept. 13, 2019 – Royal Caribbean International will dial up the adventure in South Florida in fall 2020 with the debut of the highly anticipated Odyssey of the Seas – the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to arrive in North America. The global cruise line’s 27th ship will arrive to her seasonal homeport of Fort Lauderdale, FL in November 2020 to offer 8- and 6-night Caribbean cruises. Odyssey will then continue her inaugural year in Europe for summer 2021. Offering even more ways to experience the sun-soaked islands of the Western and Southern Caribbean, Odyssey of the Seas will be the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to call on Aruba and Curacao as part of its 8-night itineraries. Island-hopping vacationers can explore Aruba’s rugged landscape off-roading in Arikok National Park, and discover the beloved architecture and narrow streets of Willemstad, Curacao. Primed for memory-making, Odyssey’s 6-night adventures will open the door to deep diving in Cozumel, Mexico; swimming with sea turtles in George Town, Grand Cayman; and a day of thrill and chill on Perfect Day at CocoCay, home to Daredevil’s Peak, the tallest waterslide in North America; Up, Up & Away, the helium balloon experience that soars up to 450 feet in the air; Oasis Lagoon, the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool; and the pristine, white sand beaches of The Bahamas. Odyssey’s Caribbean cruises are now open for sale; and Europe itineraries will open in November 2019. As part of the Quantum Ultra Class, Odyssey of the Seas will represent the next evolution of Royal Caribbean’s groundbreaking and high-tech Quantum Class. First introduced in 2014, Quantum Class ships boldly redefined the industry with unprecedented innovations in design, thrilling activities, game-changing technology and multidimensional entertainment. Travelers on board Odyssey can expect to find an unrivaled combination of new, soon-to-be-announced experiences, plus “Only on Royal” features, including the RipCord by iFLY sky-diving adventure; North Star, a glass observation capsule that takes guests more than 300 feet above the ocean; the state-of-the-art Two70 entertainment venue; and a robust lineup of culinary experiences. The ship will also tout the SeaPlex, the largest and most revolutionary indoor active space at sea, featuring a trapeze school, full-size basketball court, roller-skating rink and bumper cars.

  10. Jan thanks for the invite but we have to work around daughters work schedule and she wants to do more than be at sea. Maybe another one later on. Yes she excited and she had to rub it in that she got hers first. Glad your bbq went off well. Have a great day!!
  11. Has anyone ever been on a Mekong River Cruise? Do you like it or not? What's the best part for you?

  17. Maybe you should start wearing a helmet when you cruise!🤣 Princess usually sails from Brooklyn, but the itinerary does say Brookly OR New York, so maybe we’ll get lucky and get the NY terminal. Fortunately, it’s one way and we won’t have to disembark there.🙂
  18. Andi - You are WAY too busy, even more so than David, who also doesn’t like the dust to settle on his shoes too long. The weather turned out perfect for our BBQ on Saturday. Dorian blew past us well off the coast, the skies cleared, and we were left with a sunny day at a comfortable 70 degrees. I do feel bad for the folks in the Canadian maritimes who got clobbered. And to think that could have been us if the storm happened a couple of weeks earlier.😮 I’m still hoping that my brother will join us on the Sky Princess in November of 2020, but he and Dana do prefer port days over sea days, and they’re not thrilled about six days at sea, so I don’t know. Once they return totally exhausted from their river cruise next month, they might change their tune!😁 Falina, I have never been able to figure out the workings of passport processing. When they say it will take 6 weeks, it takes 2; when they say it will take 2, it takes 8.😆 Your daughter must be so excited about her first passport AND her first cruise! Looks like our Crazies cruise will be returning to Florida just as you’re leaving. You booked a great Norwegian cruise, but If you ever decide you’d like to hop ships and come with us, let me know. It would be an easy process to make the switch, and we’d love to meet you! Back to work for me. Have a great day!
  19. Well, let me get out my crystal ball...🤣 In all honesty, the Atlantic can be cold and rough in the fall or it can be beautiful. Sounds like a typical weather forecast, doesn’t it! On our Halloween cruise north to Canada last fall, it was beautiful with very little motion. Fortunately, we’re heading south and not across the pond, and will only have to worry about getting tossed around for the first few days. Let’s pray to the weather gods that they bless us with calm seas and sunny skies.🙂
  20. GM all, Nothing new on my end. My daughter receive her passport yesterday after only two weeks. I am still waiting on mine. Hers was a new one and mine is a renewal. Sent in a day apart and mine is still in process. We were worried hers would take longer guess we were wrong. Once mine is back we can really start all the planning for our cruise in Nov. of 2020. Everyone have a great day!!
