  1. Hi all! I just watched last week's show last night & am really disappointed that Sean is still there!! Could he possibly win with fan support & no dancing ability?!!!! Too bad better dancers are being sent home while he stays. Do not like Erin in pants. Hoping for a better outcome this Monday. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  2. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for the poem. I'm surprised to see that I am down 0.4 lbs after my 2 week cruise vacation!! I was ill with some nose/throat thingy that caused me to cancel a couple of excursions but it didn't affect my eating. 1st time I ever lost on a cruise!! I also went out for lunch yesterday where there was 14 casseroles to choose from & various pies. I don't get it but I'll take it. Have a good week. No sweets for me tonight, salty snacks are my downfall! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  3. Hi all! I had 8558 on the Jade last week & could hear quite loud noise from Bliss like karaoke, other music but it ended at 11:00 pm. Other than that I liked being on deck 8. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  4. Hi all! pacruise804 ~ thanks for starting the thread & the Thanksgiving wishes. Wonder if they'll have turkey on my cruise that day. Yikes I have no hope of ever returning to the weight I was when I got married! I'd have to lose 65 lbs so have gained a bit more than a pound for each year!! I'm flying out to Rome tomorrow night for my 11 night Greek Islands & Italy cruise & starting off at the highest weight ever so hope I don't gain too much! I'm down 0.4 lbs this week but it's not enough. Oh well better luck next month! Have a nice weekend. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  5. Hi all! Jeff ~ glad to catch your review near the beginning but am going to have a hard time following as I'm flying to Rome tomorrow to take a NCL 11 day cruise. Should I cancel, lol?! Glad to hear you're feeling better. Looking forward to catching up later in the month. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  6. Hi all! Jan ~ welcome to the thread! My DD lived in Fredericton for a few years but now is in St John's. Lack of exercise is one of my problems too but I'm retired so have lots of time to do it, just don't get around to it. This is a nice non judgemental group. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  7. Hi all! missholly24 ~ it just came up on a NCL page I belong to. It was her first cruise on NCL so she gave a little comparison since she usually does Carnival. It was on the Sun August 12th, taking her Mom to Cuba 'til they weren't! Her full name is Kimberly Smith. I think the other person I was thinking of was called Drama Queen, anybody remember her? Looking forward to Jamman54's next review once he recovers from the crud he picked up on his last cruise. pirate4me2 also writes some good Carnival reviews & has just finished one on the Sunshine that didn't go to Bermuda. Have a nice weekend. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. HI all! Belle ~ nice of you to drop by! Have fun on your cruise. I guess I'll have to be the one to spoil the great results. I'm still playing around with the 0.6 lbs which unfortunately this week is an add! I'm going into my cruise next week at my highest weight so know I'll set a new record when I get back.😒 Jan ~ good going not gaining after all the celebrations! How nice to have all the family there for your DD's wedding. Have a nice weekend. It's going to be a cold one here, frost warning in effect overnight. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  9. Hi all! sjb317 ~ maybe he's still on as the previous week he was campaigning for votes!! CruisinCrow ~ I agree, silver & black go good together. One dress I really liked was the hot pink one one of the girls wore. Nice result this week. I wondered if they'd do that since one guy dropped out. Anybody watching "Survivor"? There used to be a thread about that on CC. I stopped watching ages ago but am watching this season as I like Boston Rob who's an advisor. Love that Boston accent! Have a nice weekend. A week from today I fly to Rome for my Jade cruise so am getting excited about that. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. Hi all! wrigley80 ~ glad to see you're still cruising! A Conquest review would be neat, I really liked that ship. I just read a couple of MikeyA53's reviews tonight & see they're going on Allure on Nov 3. I saw a brief cruise report from GA Pearl on another site. Anyone remember reviews from a woman who worked for the Red Cross & wrote some funny reviews? There are a lot of talented reviewers on Cruise Critic so you sure can spend a LOT of time reading them!! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  11. Hi all! pirate ~ glad to see your review. Looking forward to hearing how you liked Princess Cays. Is HMC nicer or not? See you over on our Breeze thread. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  12. Hi all! Zephyr173 ~ thanks for your quick response to my question. So a red light district walk would be close by is what you're saying.πŸ˜‰ Do you have a suggestion for another hotel, less than $200 per night with breakfast included & near the port please? I'm probably going to be solo so want a nice area. Thanks for any help. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  13. Hi all! Another vote for Cafe Loki. I stayed at a B&B nearby & ate there twice. Had the rye bread ice cream both times. The view from the 2nd floor of the Church was lovely. If you go to the Church take the elevator up to the roof for a lovely 360 view of the Town. Glad to be going back there next year on MSC in Sept. Was there in May last time. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  14. Hi all! Zephyr173 ~ I too am coming by train for my Empress of the Seas cruise in Oct 2020. I've booked at Hotel Les Suites Labelle. Any comment on that re location & distance from train station & to the port. I have been to Montreal before so this time will just do the HOHO bus to see a few sights I missed. Thanks for your help with info on your fair city. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  15. Hi all! Wishing you many happy healthy returns of the day, Sid! Happy 50th.πŸŽ‚ Your pictures are making me wish I had a Carnival cruise booked before Feb. 2021!! I love their food choices. I mainly sail NCL which I will in 16 more days. I can hardly wait!! ~ Jo ~ 😊
