  1. Hi Everyone, After a balmy, unseasonable 80 degrees yesterday, we are back in the 60's today - perfect for puttering around outside. The furniture was hosed down and is now back on the patio for summer, and most of winter's debris swept away from the patio pavers. We even sat outside for a while admiring the budding and flowering trees. I thought about going to the nursery to pick up some flowers for the flower boxes and planters, but I was much too relaxed to move. Maybe next weekend. Yesterday was Alex's birthday party, in two parts. Part 1 featured he and his little school friends playing games and running around a gym, followed by pizza and cake. Even Baby Brother Will had fun toddling around! Part 2 featured the family going back to their house to watch him open presents. He was so funny - hopping around from one gift to the next, asking "what's this? ... what's this?" He reminded me of Jack Skellington in Nightmare Before Christmas when he discovers Christmas-LOL! He got some great stuff including a tent, a kid size folding chair for outside, binoculars, and magnifying glass. Sounds like some backyard camping is in order! He loves to play dress up, so we got him a doctor outfit complete with stethoscope and all the other tools he needs to keep his family healthy! Plus, no birthday party is complete without adults in attendance assembling complicated lego sets! Shari - I am so happy to hear your spirits are up and that you are doing well with the NutriSystem plan. One of the downsides to meal plans like this, as well as those like SlimFast, are maintaining once you're done with them. I did well on Slimfast until I went back to my old bad eating habits. Now we are both trying to eat sensibly and exercise, while monitoring calories and workouts on MyFitnessPal. It does work when we stick to it - which is hard for any plan, I guess. Andi - So what did you end up doing on your free weekend - relaxing with a good book or tackling chores? If a book, I hope you enjoyed it. If you decided on chores, I hope you didn't wear yourself out. Tomorrow is May 1st - already! Have a good night!
  2. Friday Food for Thought: "The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot."… https://t.co/aG76nhGsVm

  3. Good morning Crazies, Welcome back, Miranda! Thanks for your giving us your take on the Majestic Princess. The Chinese are fond of their casinos. That is very weird about the formal night and balloon drop confusion. Maybe the Chinese prefer to get all dressed up after a day of running around the ports. Maybe the Captain decided to play a belated April Fools joke on you. Maybe they are still working out the kinks. Either way, I still need to try out one of the Princess big ships, though I do still love the Emerald and even the Grand class. I am really excited about our private canal cruise, and I am leaning toward 4 to 6 or 5 to 7, so you can still make dinner plans. I am thinking the fried apps and the Amsterdam platter. Does anyone have food allergies or an aversion to fried foods? Our little guy Alex turns 4 today! He's such a funny, smart and caring kid - I love him crazy! Andi - Enjoy you're warm weather. We are in a bit of a rainy spell, but she's under be seeing some sun later in the week. Shari - My lawn is getting greener and greener with all the spring rain, and starting to grow. We still have twigs and branches from the winter, and need a cleanup, soon. I'm either going to have to call a landscaper or buy a mower ... Ray - Best of luck with your Nutrisystem plan. I need to really get with a plan of some kind, starting with getting out of the office chair and away from the computer. Time to run. Have a great day!

  5. Good afternoon, I'm typing this on a new bluetooth keyboard I bought for my ipad, so I apologize in advance for any misspellings. I'm still on the fence whether I'll keep it or not. It includes a really nice case but the whole thing is pretty bulky, more like carrying around a small laptop. I figure I'll try it out for a few days and see how it goes. It's a rainy day here today, perfect for hanging around the house to experiment with new stuff. Not much planned for the weekend. I am reluctantly attending a Mary Kay party tomorrow at a friend's house. I'm not fond of the high-pressure sales tactics they use and know I'll feel obligated to buy something I don't want or need. My friend has booked a few cruises with me, so I'll go for the facials, mimosas and company. Hopefully, I can escape without spending a fortune. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
  6. Hey everyone, Can you believe it's just a little over 3 months until we gather together in Amsterdam for our Norway cruise? In fact, our final payment is due in less than a month. Don't worry, you'll all get reminders very soon. In fact, I'm working on invoicing and getting my group binder organized. As I mentioned in my email, I found a company where we can rent an entire 12-person boat for a wine and cheese cruise. Here's the link: https://kinboat.com/en/boats/kin12/ The total price for the boat with bar & taxes for 2 hours is 543.80 EUR (or about 582.50 USD), which comes out to $48.54/pp. Cheese and snacks are available from a catering menu for an additional 10 EUR/pp, (minimum order of 5 people). Counting Miranda's friend, there are exactly 12 of us, and since we'll all be there on the 29th, we could do it that night. Andi, I know you're on board, and we'll check with Miranda when she returns. What about you, Ray - whaddya think? On to other news ... we had a fun time with the kids at the zoo on Monday. It was a gorgeous sunny day, not too hot-not too cold - perfect. The kids were so cute and so excited. The animals were fun, but the best part for the kids was the splash playground, and the best part for me was spending time with the kids. Shari - As much as I like hosting the big sit-down dinners on Thanksgiving, there's a lot to be said for serving prepared food - or even pizza! In fact, the older I get, the more I realize how precious time is, and I certainly don't want to spend it in the kitchen all day. Andi - I think it's nice that the school's honor Grandparents' Day and get all the Grandmas and Papas involved. The first time I heard of Grandparents' Day was when Kristin was in high school and wrote an essay for a competition, entitled "What My Grandfather Means to Me". She won the competition and got to take my dad to a luncheon, and have a formal photo sitting. Being a guy who shied away from the limelight, I can still hear him grumbling about having to sit for a photo. But, in the end, he actually enjoyed the whole event and was so proud that his granddaughter chose him to write about. Funny, you mention a large contingent of grandparents - its the same with Alex and Will's. There's Grandma (me) & Papa, Yin-Yin and Joe, and Papa (the other one) & Jan. Are kids still chasing Pokemon? The craze seems to have gone the way of the hula-hoop around here. Good luck with your car repair! Time to call it a night!
  7. Same thing happened to us, Shari, on our first trip to Mexico back in the early 80's. We were real careful with the food and drink, but got sick anyway when we got home. In fact, the whole plane was full of sick people with barf bags. Ugh!
  8. Buono Italiano! Good job with that accent. Love the story. Gracie!

  10. Viking Ocean Cruises’ fleet of six planned ships has now become eight and possibly ten. The line and Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri have signed a memorandum of agreement for two additional cruise ships, plus an option for two more. The next pair is set to launch in 2021 and 2022 respectively. Pending final financing and other closing conditions, the two ships will come online after the already launched Viking Star, Viking Sea and Viking Sky. Viking Sun is next set to be introduced in late 2017 followed by Viking Spirit during 2018 and the sixth as-yet-unnamed one in 2019. By then, Viking will be the largest small ship ocean cruise line. "Our guests and the industry have spoken, and they love the ocean ships that we have built with Fincantieri. In our first year of operation we were named the World’s Best Cruise Line by Travel + Leisure, and we are proud of Viking’s dominance in x’s 2017 Cruisers’ Choice Awards, where we won 10 categories, including ‘Best Overall’ and ‘Best for First-Timers,’” said Torstein Hagen, in a press release. “We set out to bring the destination back to cruising, and the cruising public has responded. These additional ships are needed to meet the demand we are experiencing. Once only known for being the leading river cruise line, we are now equally known for upscale, inclusive ocean cruise experiences. "As we celebrate our 20th year of operation in 2017, we are pleased to continue innovating and to introduce even more guests to The Viking Way of exploration.” According to the release and Cruise Industry News, it is anticipated that Viking will predominate the luxury ocean industry with a market share of 23.9 percent by 2020 on a per berth basis. It’s a statistic that will be further boosted by the extra ships through 2022. All the new ships will keep to the successful 47,800-ton, 930-guest design, complete with 465 all-veranda staterooms. Each will feature modern safety and “Safe return to port” systems while upholding the latest navigation standards. "The extraordinary moment of the cruise sector is continuing, and with this announcement Fincantieri reaffirms its worldwide leadership in the segment. The series – which began with the Viking Star prototype – reaches eight ships with these additional units, with the possibility to further grow thanks to the expansion plans of this dynamic cruise company,” said Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, in a press release. “As the worldwide river cruise leader, Viking decided to enter the ocean cruise segment with a startup together with Fincantieri as shipbuilder, achieving great success. We can but consider this agreement as a strategic and commercial success, which allows us to further strengthen our already excellent partnership with Viking Ocean Cruises."

  12. River cruising is increasing in popularity all the time, with new river cruise vessels launching every year. However, if you’ve never been on a river cruise before, you might not know what to expect. It’s definitely different from a traditional ocean excursion, so what else do you need to know? Ask A Pro: “My best advice is to get a travel professional who has been on a river cruise,” said Candie Steinman, Dream Vacations Franchise Owner and Vacation Specialist. “This a tough trip to do on your own. If you have not done one, you would not know which river cruise company would best suit your needs or which river to travel on. "There are many things included in river pricing that are not included in most ocean options, and that needs to be explained. Many passengers are at first turned off by the higher prices for river, but when you compare everything that is included...river is actually a good value. Often, air rates are very competitive through the river cruise company and the agent can explore that for the new river cruiser.” Karen Quinn-Panzer, Dream Vacations Franchise Owner and Vacation Specialist, emphasized how many choices there are, with notable differences between the top five to six brands and different rivers in Europe, Asia and the U.S. “So make sure you talk to a travel agent to learn what works best for you,” she said. “Wine or theme cruise? Which rivers are you most interested in? Do you want a very active river cruise with hiking/biking or one where you can tour the highlights of each port? These are just some of the questions a good agent will ask.” Take a Group Tour: “When traveling with a group tour, you'll get a far better, less expensive rate," said Greg Geronemus, the co-CEO of smarTours. "Our tours are all-inclusive, so everything from airfares, to transfers to most meals are included in our price. Traveling smarter with a group on river cruises equates to spending 50%-60% less, yet enjoying the same amazing sights.” Research: “Understand your accommodations can vary based on the price level you are at,” said Greg Antonelle, managing director of MickeyTravels LLC. “Like regular cruises, hotels, or airline seats, there are value River Cruises and there are high-end river cruises. Know what you’re looking for prior to booking to avoid any surprises.” Book Ahead: “Book at least nine months to a year in advance for the best options and pricing,” said Quinn-Panzer. Don’t Get Sticker Shock: “Many people think the price is high for a river cruise," said Amy Madson, Independent Vacation Specialist with Cruises Inc. "When you consider all the included excursions, beer and wine with meals, intimate ships and a crew who knows you by name, river cruising is good value for this high service, culture-immersive cruise experience.” Don’t Worry: “You do not need to allow extra time for embarkation and disembarkation because there are no long lines for boarding the river cruise,” said Ronda Zeneri, Land & Cruise Specialist with Cruise Planners. “It’s similar to checking in for a hotel stay. Also, you do not need to worry about transportation in the ports because most of the towns are just a few steps away.” “If you’ve been afraid to cruise because of seasickness worries, rest assured you won’t get seasick on a river cruise,” said Madson. “The shore is always in sight and there are no real waves on the rivers." Be Entertained: “One of the biggest differences of river cruising vs. ocean cruising is the entertainment,” said Madson. “On river cruises, you won’t find casinos and big production shows. You find amazing local entertainers, such as a couple who will teach you how to waltz in Vienna or an Austrian Folk music group serenading you during dinner. If you are lucky, the crew will put on a show for you and this will be one of the highlights of your cruise.” Get Out and Enjoy: “Take comfortable, walking shoes for the many available tours,” said Zeneri. “Enjoy the sites,” said Margie Lenau of Wonderland Family Vacations. “You may only be in a city for a few hours, so don't miss out.” “[If] you are flying all the way to Europe, why not stay a few days before and/or after the river cruise to enjoy a little more of Europe?” added Zeneri. “Be ready to meet people and share stories,” suggested Madson. “River cruising usually offers an intimate group of 200 or fewer travelers with open seating for dining. Sit with different people each day, learn their stories and share yours. You may make some amazing friends.” Article Courtesy Travel Pulse and Seven Sea Journeys/News Re-posted on CruiseCrazies.com - Cruise News, Articles, Forums, Packing List, Ship Tracker, and more.

  14. Norwegian Cruise Line announced Wednesday that it would begin employing certified lifeguards at onboard family pools on every ship in its fleet. The American Red Cross-trained and certified lifeguards will be tasked with monitoring family pools during scheduled hours. Passengers will begin seeing the new staff on Norwegian’s four largest ships—the Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Epic—this summer. As for the rest of the cruise line’s fleet, the lifeguards will be hired and in position by early 2018. “Norwegian has stationed pool monitors on our largest ships since 2015 and we are now taking further steps to ensure the safety of our youngest guests with the addition of certified lifeguards across our fleet,” Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Andy Stuart said in a statement. “While parents are always the first line of supervision when it comes to water safety, we felt it was important to provide this added measure across our fleet.” The cruise line will also offer complimentary swim vests for both adults and children on the company’s four largest ships. Passengers will be able to obtain the safety vests at towel stations on each ship's pool deck during daytime hours. In February, Royal Caribbean also announced that it would be adding licensed lifeguards on every ship in its fleet, starting with Oasis of the Seas. The process is expected to be completed by the end of June.
