  1. HI all! Belle ~ nice poem. Great to see new people joining us. Jenny ~ I'll take a look at your review, maybe tomorrow as today was a busy day. I'm down 1.2 lbs.I don't know why or how but I'm happy about it. I could do better if I only ate meals with nothing in between but would find that hard to do. I need my cookies & a salty snack in the evening. 3 weeks from today I sail away & can hardly wait. Have a nice weekend & see you next week. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  2. Hi all! Loving your review & sense of humour! You're making me want to book Glory! I was booked on Valor from New Orleans next Feb but it's going into dry dock. Am also booked for Breakaway then. I have to agree about Jamaica, I found it scary but beautiful. We walked from that Beach to Scotchies & lived to tell the tale! The food was good. Looking forward to the rest of the cruise. Thanks for doing this. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  3. Hi all! There was a little change on my booking today when I went to look for excursions. It now says "coming soon"! Anybody tried booking them through the US website or by phone? ~ Jo ~😊
  4. Hi all! mitsugirly ~ I see Cozumel does have an international airport. I know my DB's flown there from either Toronto or Buffalo. If you were to go there for a holiday you could take a tour from there to Xcaret, that's a really neat park to go to, or Tulum, ruins near a beautiful beach. I'm not much of a drinker either & never had a beer as I hate the taste, try as I might. Moscato is the wine for me. Sometimes I order drinks like Margaritas, Pina Coladas, virgin & am a diet cola fan. Happy to have the free beverage package this next cruise on Epic so may branch out.😉 I've been known to order the after dinner drink on HAL just for the glass & poured the drink in the water glass. Great job on your review & I'm still following. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  5. Hi all! mitsugirly ~ Cozumel would be a great place for a week long vacation, so much to see & do. I took the Cozumel Bar Hop twice to the wild side of the island & I'm not even a drinker! You could rent a car & go wherever you wanted to. Love Sakari's drawing of her furry. My cruise from Rome on Jade in Oct did not have a single comedy show!! I really missed having one as Carnival has so many of them & also trivias. Just saw a post by Radio that Freedom of the Seas is going to Cape LIberty in 2021. I love that ship & hope to sail it for my 1st cruise as diamond on RCL. Hope your foot is getting better day by day. ~ Jo ~
  6. Hi all! mitsugirly ~ so glad to hear you're finally going on Oasis! Looking forward to your review of it. I went on it in Nov 2011 with my sister, her one & only cruise. She really liked it but has a cottage & a place in AZ so doesn't tend to travel much. We had a Central Park balcony & liked it. We both have places on the water so it's not that big a factor in choosing a cabin. It's really a different experience with the neighbourhoods & different shows. You're sure to love it. I can hardly wait!😉 ~ Jo ~ 😊
  7. Hi all! Belle ~ nice poem as usual. Broopa ~ welcome to the thread. Nice to see some people setting goals & posting starting weights. I'm not that goal oriented more just take it as it comes, off, I hope! I was surprised but happy to see I'm down 2.2 lbs from last week! I'm doing some Wii Fit when I'm not going out at the usual time & using MFP to count calories. I have 21 lbs to lose to be what I want to be which is 147, a weight I was for over 20 years until I retired coming up 13 years ago next month. Have a nice weekend & see you next weigh in. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. Hi all! I called the MSC Canadian office in Mississauga today & got through quickly. The agent said it's a new office & they're still learning & expect the shore excursions to be posted sometime this month. My cruise isn't until Sept. so no big deal but I would like to know what's on offer in case I have to go with non ship ones. OTOH patience is not one of my virtues so hope it's sooner rather than later!! Hope this helps. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  9. Hi all! Laura ~ yes that was a shocking comment! Who knew she's married to a Kushner?! I thought he'd be leaving for sure after saying that but then he has had garments they weren't happy with at least 3 times! First drama of the season, lol! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. Hi all! Did anybody watch the show last night? Yikes what an awkward moment! I think the right designer went home. I missed the show last week & was glad to see it back last night. Have a nice weekend. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  11. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for the words of wisdom & encouragement. I started doing a little Wii Fit again & will start My Fitness Pal way of counting calories now I've remembered my password!! My sister has chosen to do Weight Watchers which sounds good, & I know gets results, but I just don't like the idea of paying for it. She said it's not that expensive & I guess realistically I pay so much more for entertainment like tv & internet but somehow I don't want to pay for something I think can be done on one's own. Anybody else feel this way? Oh, btw I remained the same, so was surprised at that! Have a great week & all the best in this new year. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  12. Hi all! mitsugirly ~ I'm another one who would never see these underwater sights if it weren't for you. Your pictures are beautiful plus I love the sound of the videos. Just want to wish you, your family & your fans best wishes for a happy, healthy 2020. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  13. Hi all! melmar02 ~ lovely cakes! OH to be so creative!!! Had a funny experience yesterday when I did my Wii Fit after over 100 days of not & see my weight is only up 0.2 lbs since then!! Guess I've been putting on & losing the same pounds over & over again!! Want to wish you all the very best in 2020! Hope we'll all be a little lighter in the coming year. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  14. HI all! Danish viking ~ thanks for this info. Do you know the term "asking for a friend"? well I really am, there's no way I'd do that tree top walk. Have a nice day. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  15. Hi again! Danish viking ~ thanks for your quick response to my questions. Have you done the Tree Top Walkway? ~ Jo ~ 😊
