I'll wave at you as you're getting off! I'm sailing November 15.

This is my first X cruise, so I can't help out too much. Is this your first cruise?

Haven't been on the Reflection, but we were on its sister ship, the Eclipse, and absolutely loved it! I think we found our perfect ship!! For us, it was everything we wanted in a cruise; great food, great service, and a beautiful ship. Out of our 47 cruises on 11 cruise lines, we'd rank it in the top 3!

Definitely try some of the specialty restaurants - we especially liked Qsine!

When you first get onboard, they'll offer some packages, like 3 specialty restaurants and 3 bottles of wine for a special price. Good deal, not great, but worth it.

Can't wait to go again - if this was the only ship we could sail on, it would be fine with us!

Only been on The Reflection once, going again in January 2015. Have breakfast on The Porch (uncrowded and very relaxing) and have dinner at least once at Murano.

Heading out on her for the third time on November 22. (This will be the first cruise sailing alone since my DH passed in January.) I did sail in March but an ex-friend sailed with me on that one. Not going to happen again.

I would love to meet you. I had the choice of the 15th or 22nd but had to take the 22nd cause I was already on the Indie for the next week. I have to grab the good single rates where I can - they are few and far in between since they charge 200%. I have a special for the Reflection so I just had to jump on it.


But I would love to meet you for coffee!!

Thank you momofmeg. I'm still learning to deal with it. I/we just didn't expect it. Ten months from diagnosis till he passed away. Chemo did nothing for him at all.


That's too bad that we are going to miss by a day. We're getting closer and will meet one day I'm sure

I guess I missed his cancer diagnosis too. I just remember his heart problems. Not that it would be easier if it had been his heart. My mom passed that way, she never woke up form by pass surgery.

I am in the beginning of heart disease. At this point, angioplasty is more dangerous than beneficial my heart doc says; since my risk is still low. We only caught it early because I have diabetes and I have a yearly stress test.

I am 60 now, my brother had a stint put in at 58. I guess it is just in the genes with all of us having diabetes.

The cancer was so quick. We were not in the least expecting it although I think he may have had an inkling something was wrong that he didn't share with me because he chose to go to the doctor, something he had never done before. They did surgery but the doctor told us the tumor had grown so much from the time he found it till surgery (just a couple of weeks) that I don't think my DH expected too much. he tried though. He fought it every step of the week but once he knew what was going to happen, he took it extremely well. Made all his plans, made sure he saw and spoke to everyone he wanted to. I don't know if I could have done that.


His mother died of cancer 2 weeks after her 65th birthday, David died 1 week after his 65th. His father died of heart and David had a heart attack 4.5 years before. His sister has been very lucky - she hasn't had any of it. My David got it all.


Sorry for going on. It seems once in awhile I get very verbose.


Since you at least know you have heart issues you know to stay on top of it and that's a great deal of what will help you.

Yep Felix, my mom passed at 71 and my dad at 63 about 3 weeks before his 64th. He had had cancer at 59 and it had returned. He also had Alzheimers so he did not know and my mom only knew less than 2 weeks. Very fast for him. I guess with their history it does not bode well that I will be around much longer.
