    Thank you. Yes ... I plan to go that far for sure. I’m glad you said nothuo smile because I pretty much smile at everyone!  But I can’t trust the elevator to work when I return and I cannot do the stairs.  Everyone is so nice, but this is not that important to me!😊

     

    I’m completely de-stressed about the packing. And it’s funny because shoes are a non-issue for me. They just need to be comfortable. I hope to only have 3 pair with me.  They take up way too much room. 

     

    Bill, you make me laugh. You really don’t need boots this trip😂. But maybe for those stairs!!!  LOL. 

    I just left Havana on the NCL Sky, the elevator was working today. See you in the morning!

    Kayfabe,

    I can not recall if there was a railing on the stairs, but I think there must have been.

    My wife does not do stairs well, particularly going down.

    She does not recall either so I suppose there must be some.

     

    On the candy, no problem, I think.  They will not inspect a purse.

    After all, don't all of us take along something for energy??

    Since we arrive on a Monday, kids will be in school.

    If you go across the street, there is a school on the right.

    We stopped there on a Sunday and talked to the principal.

    You probably need some Spanish.

    I don't know if we violated some sort of US law since all the schools are state operated.

    Directly across the plaza there is a children's art museum.

    It is worth a visit.

     

    Thanks for the info Cruzon. My wife speaks Spanish a bit so I think we will get by. Margie, re you not taking the O package in the future, I see no point in it now that they include internet all over the ship for everyone. I prefer to make my own flight arrangements if I have to fly(plus have a ton of points on both Delta and American)and once you take that air credit off you are pretty much just paying for the onboard credit. We will be on our way and many of us will be dining by this time tomorrow. safe travels to all of you. looking forward to meeting you all.Oh Linda, Santo Thomas was a port on one of our previous O sailings and your friend is right. If I recall we got off took a very short walk realized there was nothing and got back on the ship...all in the space of 15-20 minutes. Better to just enjoy the ship IMO.

    Margie, I don’t think I’ll need that Kleenex!!  I’m so much better today and just in the nick of time. I can’t believe how blessed Ray and I are timing wise with these bumps in the road that could have been mountains if timing had been tweaked. 

     

    Before we all embark tomorrow I just want to tell you all how I’ve enjoyed this roll call. Everyone has been so friendly, helpful and supportive. I look forward to meeting you all tomorrow night and also to being pampered and served for a week!!  Safe travels to you all!!

    Hello to Nichole and Mom!

    Gang, a miracle has occurred:  Traveling with just ONE checked bag,albeit large, two carryons!  We have a luggage scale to make sure we stay under the 50 lb limit.

    Bill, very excited to see those boots of yours😃

    Linda, gotta use up all the shipboard credit we have so no private tours for us this time.  Hope to find one suitable for me, with little walking.May not happen, not concerned..next O cruise we will NOT take the package!

    Heather, I'll bring an extra pack of Kleenex for you !

    To everyone: This board has been so much fun.  Thanks for making it that way.

    Safe travels to the pier all, be it by plane, train, auto, bicycle,tricycle or feet.  See you all in Horizons 6PM.

    Margie and Doc.
