  1. Luggage tag on Elation in January.
  2. I was on this cruise. I don't have a lot of time right now to read this whole thread and to stick around for a lot of chatting (only have a few days turn around time between this cruise and a fly-to trip to Abaco - I'm in exhausted, rushed unpack-clean-and-repack mode). But I'll answer questions and clarify where I can. Our original ports were supposed to be Amber Cove (January 13th) and Grand Turk (January 14th). We missed both. Nassau was added (as announced in a letter from the Captain on the 14th) in order to give us a port day. We stopped in Nassau on January 15th, which would have originally been our final Sea Day before docking back at Port Canaveral on January 16th. I have the Fun Times, but I'm sorry, I don't have time to photo them and load them. But make sure you catch "Power of Two", the Filipino duo that is just as good as the great Filipino house bands of Carnival days gone by. Ashera (the female half of the duo) is a powerhouse of talent! They usually play at the Drama Bar (Casino Bar), on Deck 9. I do not feel the same about this as the OP. Although my family and I were all disappointed to have missed both of our scheduled ports for this sailing, we realize 'stuff' happens and aren't looking for any more compensation than the refunded port fees, Shore Excursion purchases, and $50 per PAX per Port OBC that Carnival already gave us. It would have been nice to get 25% discount on a future cruise or whatever (especially if that would be 25% off what we paid for this cruise toward the next, because it was four of us in a Grand Suite🤑), but I don't feel entitled to that or any thing else. It was a disappointment. We were not injured or wronged in any way.
  3. I LOVE that show (new season comes out tomorrow!)! I LOVE LOVE LOVE her wardrobe! But I could never fit into it - she's like a size zero.😮 And I'm so so not. I don't like the way my legs look in shorts so I don't ever wear them except for gardening in my back yard. I sometimes wear capris, and will pack one pair for each cruise, but no shorts. Other than the retro-style dresses, all my sundresses and skirt ensembles are very comfortable and easy to wear.
  4. Thanks! I'm really into the 1950s - early 60s fitted bodice/circle skirt belted sundresses and cocktail dresses. I just love the classic, flattering, feminine lines of them. I even wear crinolines with them, to get the fabulous full skirt effect. I forgot to add in my previous post, to fully answer the OP: these are what I wear during the day. I change for dinner, into a more evening-appropriate dress, then I stay in that dress for all evening shows, entertainment, etc. I don't use the ship's pools or hot tubs, so I won't be seen wearing a swimsuit onboard. And I never wear flip-flops. During the day, I'll be wearing sandals or wedges. In the evening: strappy heels, pumps, or dressy wedges.
  5. I'm so saddened by this. My prayers and sympathy to Jack and all his family. Topher was the best goodwill ambassador any beach bar (or any place at all, for that matter) could have had. He has added immeasurably to our enjoyment of our many visits to Jack's Shack over the years. He will be sorely missed by thousands from all over the world. I was just one month away from being able to hang out with him for two days on my BTB.
  6. For Sea Days, I'll generally wear sundresses like these: Or, if I'm feeling more casual, a peasant skirt with a fitted top, something like this:
  7. Would it be cheating to tell you that Eurodam is passing you right about now to your port, doing 21.5 knots to your 15? But that AotS is only doing 12 and you're leaving her in your wake?
  8. I wasn't aware that using an available resource to answer your request for information was cheating. I didn't know we were playing a game. I was answering a query correctly. I guess that is not what you were looking for. I apologize.
  9. If they are the ones behind you right now, Eurodam and Allure of The Seas. ETA: In that order (Eurodam is closest to you, with AotS behind her).
  10. Nope, Sky Princess is currently moored in Ft Lauderdale. It was Regal Princess.
  11. Marine traffic Dot Com says Regal Princess is the ship just ahead of you (ship closest to you), doing 19.8 knots to your 14.6 knots, so she probably passed you.
