  1. Update: We changed our booking to this February date. We remain hopeful a COVID-19 vaccine will be available before we drive to Florida. Anyone joining us on this six day cruise to the ports of Nassau in the Bahamas, Amber Cove, Dominican Republic and Grand Turk?
  2. Update: We changed our booking to this February date. We remain hopeful a COVID-19 vaccine will be available before we drive to Florida. Anyone joining us on this eight day after New Year cruise on the repurposed Carnival Victory to the ports of Curacao, Aruba and Grand Turk? We cruised on the Victory in Dec of 2001.
  3. We have friends who cruised MSC last year and they loved it. They especially liked the food and service in the dining room. if they would stage a ship in NOLA we would probably book just to try something new.
  4. Thanks Andi! I will be just a few days shy of 74 when I retire so I think it's about time! On another note we just booked 17 days (2 B2B cruises) on the Norwegian Jade for early Jan 2021. we will spend New Year with the family in St Johns (Jacksonville) and then drive to Tampa for our cruise.
  5. This is the movie: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11462496/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast She plays mean girl #2. Ashtyn does not like to watch scary movies!
  6. I, Keith came back home after the B2B cruises on the Glory with bronchitis which has taken more than a month to get over. My stepfather is struggling with his health right now so we cancelled our next cruise which was a cruise on the Ecstasy out of Jacksonville in April. We don't want to be on the high seas in case he takes a turn for the worse. Our youngest daughter and her family moved to Jacksonville last year. Our 10 year granddaughter who acted in some plays and did a TV commercial in our home town landed a bit part in a Netflix movie filmed in Jacksonville. It's supposed to be released sometime in March. Right now we don't have any cruises booked but we are currently looking for an extended cruise for Jan 2021 since I will finally be retired.
  7. We went to Paradise Point last month for their great Banana Daiquiri!
  8. We took this photo as the Carnival Miracle went under the bridge on 4/28/2019. Notice the bend in the antenna as it touched the bottom of the bridge.
  9. This will be our first trip to Charleston. We haven't been to the Eastern Caribbean in a few years so we are looking forward to this trip and cruise.
  10. Just dropping by the dock to say hi to all and especially to Shari. Welcome back to CruiseCrazies Shari!❤️❤️
  11. On our very first trip to Cozumel in 1998 we booked a "Jeep" tour and when we got there it was Geo Trackers! One of the worse 4-drive vehicles ever produced. In spite of that we had a great time touring the island.

  15. 14 days via 7 day B2B cruises a couple times.
  16. We've not noticed a difference between the two and also on Carnival for mixed drinks. They all seem about the same. However on our most recent RCI cruise they offered us a better discount for booking the drink package on line.
  17. Jan, we did have a very good cruise, or should I say 2 good cruises. I won't be writing a review as my mother passed away 4 days after we returned. home. It's been a hectic time since. The ship was nice, the crew was great and the food was okay. The only port we liked was Key West but we knew that when we booked. All in all it was a great winter getaway. The Filipino band aboard was great. After about 10 days on the ship I realized I recognized their style of music. I recognized the lead singer/guitarist from the old HAL Westerdam we cruised in 1998. I went on line and pulled up a photo from our Shutterfly account taken of us on the dance floor with the band in the background and it was him. When I showed him the photo he choked up a little as it was his first gig with his 4 brothers who made up the band at that time. Since then one brother had passed away and all the others except him have quit the music business. Twenty years later his present band is still playing the same type of great dance music.
  18. No tours/no stops in Panama so the top of the ship was full! It was less crowded on the return so we were able to take better photos from the back of the ship. Our first port after Panama was Costa Rica.
  19. We just uploaded these to the Gallery/Photo Albums. Our 10 day Journey Cruise on the Carnival Fantasy Sept 17 to 27, 2018 included passage thru the canal into the lake for about 3 hours and then back thru.
