Thanks Bob.

 

If there is further discussions to the Jones Act could you delete it for me. Especially since we talked about it last night on the thread.  Really no need to hash it out any further.

 

Whatever happens to us on Wednesday or Thursday will be what it is.  It might not even be relevant. Who knows. 🤷‍♂️

I didn’t bring it up. Lol

Amen.

Did you hear that they sent some of their boats to the Daytona track for safe keeping.

We rode by the speedway this morning and only saw power trucks and tree trimmers. Must be hundreds. One Daytona is also loaded up as is Volusia Mall. Not sure what is in the infield.

“Ownership has its privileges”, says D+ Member Owen.  And yes, his feet were very clean but whoever was there last left crumbs on the couch. 

 

LOL, Diamonds Members... can’t take them anywhere.

Very interesting. Thanks for the update. They were interviewing a USCG sailor and he said sending the big boats to Daytona for safety and something else with the smaller craft. All we worry about up here is blizzards and tornadoes.

Where is everybody? Bail after the last lap around Cozumel?

Agreed. And Hurricane remnants upon occasion. 

 

I have a friend who works with Hydro One in Ontario. They should be mustering at different yards with his fellow coworkers getting ready to head to the states any time now. He has worked on the line recovery crews for a three decades. He has shared some interesting stories over the years. One of their biggest convoys was was around 50 trucks. Katrina was one of his most vivid trips.

Maybe the big boats came up to Ponce Inlet and  into the intercostal???

So how many people left the ship already and does the ship feel less crowded  or you really can't tell that?

I also had talked to crews lined up in the parking in a mall near me. They were on their way in 2017 to a variety of locations where the 2 hurricanes hit. So glad that there are states that have extra equipment to send for help. We are expecting severe weather here in the city tomorrow night. Maybe a tornado. Time will tell.

A fairly full house for iSkate.

 

Under 400 have left. Not sure how many will depart to today.

Trying to keep up with everything, so I am assuming you are not evacuating and staying put?

I did find this though. Totally different if this was the swingers cruise.

I’m reading your post with interest.  My sister, brother in law and their granddaughter are on the ship with you.  You implied that people have the option to leave today.  Where are you ?  Their car is parked at the port and they need to drive back to NJ when you get back.  Granddaughter’s first day of school is Wednesday, which is not possible for her.  Where are you today?

I hate to inform you, but we’re actually at sea. It was meant as a joke.

I thought so but wasn’t certain:).   Take care and celebrate the positive side of being on the cruise longer.  BTW, I live one hour from London.  Hope you can get a flight back without much delay.  Take care.

Cool, we’re about 30 minutes north of London.

 

We have flights booked for Sunday of next week. If all goes well we should be staying on board the ship for the short cruise after this one.

This should not be called a “speed” test. 

 

That’s horrible.  Did you move to Grandeur?😂
