  1. You guys have made me change my mind about dinner tonight. I’m now craving a pork sandwich with lots of mustard based sauce or St Louis ribs with sweet hickory sauce. We here in Jacksonville Fl get teased about our cuisine being heavy on barbecue, but boy, is it good. I can’t imagine a cruise ship version being a good substitute. “If you don’t see a pit, it ain’t legit!”.
  2. Two places I’ve always wanted to explore. I95 on a cruise ship and underground at Disney World.
  3. I was able to book the shows Saturday November 9 for Harmony sailing March 29.
  4. My grandparents sailed with some urgency on the Noordam. They came home to Papenburg Germany to show family their two baby girls who were born in the US. Germany was obviously preparing for war, and because he was not yet a US citizen, my grandfather was in danger of being conscripted. They went over the border into Holland and sailed back to New York. The Ellis Island manifest from the ship looks odd, two adults German citizens, a toddler and baby with birthplace NYC, but had to come through as though they were foreigners. My DH and I sailed on Noordam twice before I knew I had family history with that name.
  5. I hope you enjoy the St Kitts train ride as much as we did. My DH still talks about my choosing to sit facing the water. Everyone else faced land. That’s probably the best way, but I can never see enough water. We liked sitting upstairs, where we had a delightful breeze. Simple alcohol drinks were served pretty much nonstop. They went down really easily!
  6. Back when cars had antennas, a friend stuck a tennis ball on hers to make it easier to find. That worked until people started copying the idea.
  7. I read a story in Readers Digest probably 40 years ago, and, like some if their others, it stuck with me. Lady went up to security in an airport parking lot. Couldn’t find her car. Said she walked miles looking for it. Security guard asked what make and model. She said it was her husband’s car and she couldn’t remember. What color? maybe black, or brown. Or dark gray. Tag number? No clue. He drove her for miles through the huge parking lot. They were about to decide it was stolen when she spied it. “I see it! It’s the one over there with a canoe strapped to the roof.”!!!
  8. Spinners make travel so much easier. On a smooth surface it takes no effort to roll your luggage along. I remember balancing my purse or something on my two wheeled suitcase and having it flip over so I’d have to stop and fix it. Again!
  9. Spinners have a handle on the side and one on the end. Easy to grab no matter which way the luggage was placed.
  10. I told my DH they taste like chewy, garlicky mushrooms. That got him to try one and now he’s hooked.
  11. The whole private out island idea started with Great Stirrup Cay. Bruce Nierenberg was with the old NCL and came up with the idea. That was certainly the start of something big!
  12. Murfturf, you might want to start a new thread, rather than replying to s three year old one.
  13. I’m so glad to read that Coco Cay had good weather today. Allure’s passengers ran into bad weather and had to evacuate the island. Timing is everything! My DD, her DH and 8 friends are on board with y’all. Hope this will be a perfect cruise.
