  1. Laurie is a great mom taking her daughters with her on vacation, and I’m sure they all enjoy the bonding time. It’s good you’re keeping busy, but please take it slow.🙂
  2. Miranda, I have been looking at the Enchanted Princess, and I do like some of their European cruises. But either their too short (7 days) or too long (13-21 days) or their too darned pricey. I wish there was something in the middle - 9 or 10 would be perfect. As for me, I can't squeeze anything else in for 2020, but could for early, late summer or fall of 2021, depending on cost. We could replace our 2021 Viking Ocean with a 13-14 day Enchanted Princess, but the prices aren't much less, and Ray is not fond of the big ships. One that did catch my eye was the 14-day repositioning (Europe to the Caribbean) on 11/5/20, the same day as our Sky Princess cruise: https://www.princess.com/cruise-search/details?voyageCode=N059. It's 14 days, though, pricey for a repo, and I'm not sure David can be away that long. Plus, there are no interiors available, which means there is probably a big group occupying much of the ship for that sailing. The 7-day winter Caribbean cruises are affordable, but I'm not sure that's what you're looking for and the itineraries don't excite me all that much. I'm keeping July and August in '20 and '21 open for my family vacations until I figure out what we're doing, but other than the Viking 5/28/21 cruise, the rest of the year is open. Maybe Andi, Ray and other Crazies can weigh in?
  3. Did you know? We have a CruiseCrazies Viking Ocean Mediterranean cruise in the works for 2021. Includes many beautiful destinations including Santorini and Dubrovnik. Check it out here:

  8. Ray - So very sorry for the health news. You and Yuki indeed make a great team and will weather this storm together. Thinking and praying for you both! You have friends here for support - let us know how you’re doing.🙂♥️🙏 I always tell my fall Canada New England cruisers to never count on seeing a lot of color. The interior mountain regions get the most dramatic color while the coastal areas aren’t nearly as brilliant and typically occurs a week or two later. If your lucky to time it right with Mother Nature’s schedule, an excursion into the woods is your best bet. Andi - The Midwest storms are crazy. We’ve had a week of windy, rainy and chilly weather and I’m about ready for some sun! How was Newsies? We bought tickets for ‘Come From Away’ for December. Hi to all the Crazies!
  9. I guess they feel that they can still use the word “free” as long as the other 3 amenities still have no added cost.
  10. Shari - you didn’t mess up anything. It’s been taking us all about 2 weeks of posting before we realize that it’s a new month.😁 It’s terrible that Medicare put a halt on some of your treatments. I’m turning 65 in January and applying for Medicare this month. Not looking forward to all the hassle.

  14. The new price goes into effect 10/10/19, so you still have three days to book the beverage promo at the current rate.😁 Agreed, it’s no longer free, but still a value if you drink a lot and were to purchase the package onboard at the regular rate of $59/day plus 20% gratuity. Sometimes the best value is a senior rate, a resident rate or non-perk rate, and then just purchasing the amenities you want, especially if you are not a drinker.
  15. Hi Everyone - We just returned from a 3-day stay in New Hampshire for some leaf peeping and had a great time hiking, eating and, of course, photo shooting. The colors are near peak in the mountains, and it was pretty cold, especially at the summit of Cannon Mtn. A 5-layer day! We hiked a total of 3 miles consisting of uneven ground and substantial uphill climbing, most of it through the Flume Gorge. Cannon Mtn we reached by tram. Maybe after another year of training will be scaling mountains! Miranda - I closed the Sept. dock, but not before I read your post about the new Princess ship and maybe getting a group together. Sounds like a great plan, and I’ll look into the details.🙂 Andi - I ended up booking our precruise stay on the Queen Mary after seeing a YouTube video making it look like something I’ll regret later if I don’t do it. I figure we’re only getting in around 4 pm and it’s only for a night, so if we hate it, it won’t be for long. I booked our flight to LAX on SW with points, and the return with Delta, which wasn’t cheap. But at least that’s done. Norm tells me that they just boarded their Viking cruise - so far so good. Shari - Thank you for posting and sharing your progress. You must be so happy to be home! It sounds like you’re working hard and you have a lot of help from family and medical providers. Good for you - keep up the great work! Falina - Passports - check✅😁. Now comes all the fun planning! Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!
