  1. In the spirit of today’s quote, let’s live in a fantasy, how about a barbecue on the beach for dinner? We can have Greek salad. I’ll bring the wine, lol. This one holds a thousand liters🥳😂
  2. Oh such great memories!, much better than mine, yesterday was Cagliari not Alghero! @MAVIP hope you will return, so much to see from that port! @rafinmd those tunnels! Unreal! @VintageGeo that lobster! @VMax1700oh to be sailing away and winning at the casino @Cruising-along Today is Ajaccio, Corsica, oh to see those markets, but I am using the last of my Marseille soap I bought there!
  3. We have a good cover and have kept Our Weber outside forever and it’s fine. I hope I don’t jinx it! Though sometimes he needs boots and a coat😂
  4. Wanted to say thanks Rich, Roy et al. Slow start today! Heres another Greek salad from Crete, love how they are all a little different! This is distracting me from looking outside! Although now after watching My octopus Teacher a feel a bit of guilt🥴
  5. DH barbecues year round, that includes minus thirties 🥶😂 @cat shepard just once I wish I could identify even half those flavours! Heres our lunch in Katakolon last fall in honour of the Noordam. Gotta love a good Greek salad!
  6. Love that you tried the cranberry walnut! How was it? I knew I should have come for dinner!
  7. So Oh, I see you mean the economy. Glad people are masking, really hope you can get this under control. Our news was carrying info on hospitalization rates in Utah overwhelming them, and being overcapacity!
  8. @Mary229 Still wondering about what you meant earlier about things going well and just needing training. A genuine question about what you meant?
  9. I agree with staying at least one night. We have enjoyed Windsor, within easy reach by bus or taxi from Heathrow airport. We also visited Winchester Cathedral, between Southampton and Heathrow. Every trip we visit something new, there is so much to see in this area of England. Leeds Castle, the Cotswolds, Salisbury Cathedral, ......
  10. We really enjoy the longer and more exotic itineraries as well. We didn’t have the pleasure of the Prinsendam, and our Tahiti cruise on the Pacific Princess that I should be on right now was cancelled. But we have sailed on the Rotterdam, which we loved and three of the four signatures, one Vista and one Pinnacle class. We have loved them all, even the much aligned Koningsdam, She is truly beautiful. My only concern is that sometimes maintenance has been deferred too long. Our first 20 day cruise on Noordam was wonderful. Our last was a real disappointment, the lack of repair of a suite was unacceptable, let alone the old TVs and leaks with buckets. So really hoping this paring down of the fleet results in a quality offering on every cruise. We too have looked elsewhere, really want to give Crystal a try if it survives.
