Once I am completely done with the booking I have outstanding on the Indie I am off ships this large.
Traveling with 3800+ of my very best friends appeals about as much as living with 499 others in a large warehouse with overhead lights burning 24/7. Just poke my eyes out now and get it over with.
[Can you tell that I don’t always do change well?]
But there are noticeably more people on this ship than before. It is not just the presence of all the children, it is the overwhelming numbers of loud people, scooter people, bragging people.
Ah, yes. The source of my irritation is the 2500+ members of the Crown & Anchor Society. 19 Pinacles (sailed more than 700 days on RCI) 1100+ between the Diamond and Diamond + (81-699 days) all of whom are trying to jam themselves into lounges never meant for that size group. Their purpose is, of course, to make sure that they get their share of the free booze on tap.
Me? I am thrilled that they consistently have diet Sprite and chocolate covered strawberries every other night.
I am attending those shows I missed the first two cruises and will have pictures when I marry up the camera and USB cable again. Meanwhile, I have laundry to do and a shawl to knit…
more fingering weight wool – this time in denim. Pattern passed along from Treena (Canada) and originating with Lion’s Brand.
