Somethings on a small line are very different than those on a large cruise line/ship.
Example – most lines offer you the opportunity to book your next cruise while on ship. It is either a direct booking or a future cruise voucher that is worth more than the cash for which you paid it. This line (grin)? There was this lovely young woman sitting at the future cruise desk. She took my information and then said she would get rates from the home office when I informed her that the catalog rates were not acceptable. (Especially since the return TA in the spring is 14 days at sea….)
Different rates she asked? Yes – I have a tendency to use VTG (VactionsToGo) as a good guesstimate of what the cruise price should be. And if I happened to get an email offer from the line itself (discounts for booking while on the ship, decreased solo surcharge etc) I am not really interested in paying the catalog price. Enough about that silliness. She says she should have more information for me by Monday…
I spent a large portion of the afternoon and evening taking a nap – so didn’t get much done. I thought seriously about the hot tub – went out to the one here on deck 5. It was hot. It was extremely sunny. I went back to my nap.
looking down the center of the ship from my toward the front of the ship.
I managed almost 600 stitches on No Planet B which means I should be able to finish it tomorrow.
but only 538 (patternkeeper is wonderful – it counts stitches other wise I use time) on the LongDog so I will post them both tomorrow.
Last bit – cruising in the time of Covid. There is a lot of panic about the new variant . Enough so that we had a couple of passengers who chose to fly home from the Canaries so that they would not get hung up on their way home. Air Canada just sent me a couple of nice emails – I am a transit passenger. I need to pull their App and upload all my information, but as long as I fully vaccinated I should be ok as long as I stay in the secure area of the terminal for plane changes. Testing on Tues night, flying on Wednesday afternoon means that I won’t be within 24 hours or one calendar day by the time I hit my US connector on Thurs morning (we having multiple time zones to deal with as well).
It will be another challenge….
More tomorrow – supper is calling.
