  1. Day and a bag drag till wheels up.....😊😊😊 Bob
  2. No, unfortunately we cancelled. We mainly booked to sail with Holli’s sister and her DH (who was a retired Deputy Sheriff doing the same job I do). Tragically however, he passed away this past Fall. We still have the Alaska R/T booked (directly after the 10 day cruise). We will decide before final payment (next month) if we are still going to sail..... Bob
  3. Hi Jan; The aft PH is designed differently (IMHO) Riviera deck PH’s. The Riviera deck PH’s are side by side while the connection of the two rooms in the aft PH’s is angled. I also hope there are no soot issues as the Dolphin deck balconies are the largest ones (excluding the Sky Suites) on the ship. I loved the size of our Dolphin PH on the Royal with the exception of the very prest soot issues..... Bob
  4. We’ve thought about cross packing. While it is a sound solution, it just wouldn’t work for us. About the closest we get, is packing a change of clothes in our carry one.....😊😊😊 Bob
  5. Wanda; Thank you for your kind words (as well as thanks to others) for your kind words regarding Misha. As far as the Sky is concerned,, congrats on your Baltic itinerary booking. Holli has actually been talking about wanting to do another Baltic cruise. We will take good care of the Sky for you..... Bob
  6. An early good morning all from Palmdale Ca. Well as expected, I woke up early (0400 local time) due to pre-cruise excitement. On tap for today is to finish packing as, alas, I got side tracked yesterday and didn’t finish. Other than that, all there is to do is take Holli to an appointment. Tomorrow, I will be taking our Golden Retriever pup Bailey to his pet hotel. It will be his first time away from us at the young age of 19 weeks. Holli will not accompany me as it (as ir was with Misha) is too hard for her to part with her new boy. She will however go with me when I pick him up. After dropping Bailey off, we will try and make it an early night as the limo will be picking us up at 0300 for our ride to Lax and a 0600 flight. That’s all for now. Hope all are well.....😊😊😊 Bob
  7. Got it, makes perfect sense. I'm really looking forward to getting to use my 90D. I waited a number of years for Canon to release it.....😊😊😊 Bob
  8. Thanks for taking the time to post your observations. We board the Sky on Saturday so this is the perfect motivational tool.....😊😊😊 Bob
  9. Thanks for the great pictures and video. I'm really looking forward to trying my new camera out for this cruise. One question, what is the purpose of acclimating the cameras? Bob
  10. Good morning all from Palmdale Ca. Only 73 hours till wheels up for Florida. Today is my packing day. Have to run to the cleaners before I start so I'll probably start around 0800 or so. Usually takes me two to three hours so it's not too bad. Holli has a couple of appointments today and then she will probably do some packing. As far as her packing goes, I learned long ago to only get involved when she asks me if I have any addition space in my bags because she ran out of spaceπŸ˜‰. Let's talk about the Sky for a moment. This is my first time back on a Royal class ship since 2013. I am very much looking forward to the additions they made between the Royal (2013) and the Sky next week. I really like the fresh look of the cabins and public areas of the ship. I really want to try out Le Mer as well as the Al Fresco dining area outside Alfredos. While I am a little down on the demise of Crooners, I'm sure Take Five will serve as an acceptable replacement. The aft pool addition is something I am also looking forward to. One thing I'm really looking forward to is using my recently purchased Canon 90D to take a ton of pictures of the Sky and of the various ports we visit. Well that's all for now. As departure gets closer, I really start to get excited. I also, as indicated by the time I am posting this, don't get too much sleep due to the excitement building. Hope all are well.....😊😊😊 Bob
  11. Looking forward to meeting you as well......😊😊😊 Bob
