Hey rose, Its me ChapinCruiser from previous post.
Was the comedian at midnight good and raunchy? I love comedians. How many nights does a comedian perform. Are there any other show beside "production" shows such as comedians, magicians, etc...???
Again, thanks for all the info. Any other info will be appreciated. I wish I could see the capers for the week. I wish Carnival printed them out for each ship.
As far as entertainment in the Venetian Palace, they had a comedian by the name of Carl Faulkenberry just one night, never heard of him, didn't go to his show. I don't know if they fly these people in just for one show then fly them right out again or if they cruise the whole week just for one performance. One other night they had a singer who performed big band songs and Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis tunes. The comedian we did see was J.R. McCollum, supposedly he has been on Comedy Central, very funny...he did the X-rated midnight show. Another comedian that performed was Happy Cole, never heard of him either and Marcus Anthony sang Motown hits with the Liberty orchestra. There is so much live entertainment at all the various venues on the ship that you don't know which one to attend. One night we went to the piano bar where Damian was performing, he was o.k. The disco was rockin' and rollin' every night and the theme changed....Latin, dance bands, music from the 60's, 70's, 80's, Motown. They played jazz in the cigar bar, classical music in the lobby, 50's & 60's music in the casino bar. They had a special martini bar set up one night near the casino and lots of people enjoyed the sushi before dinner. We never did make it to the Grand Gala Buffet on Friday night...there is just so much you can do.
rosetattoo, You are my hero. I wish you were coming along with me. Do they offer Bingo everyday or multiple times a day. What was an average day at sea like as far as activities, games, bingo and contest.?
I wish I were going too, my bags are still packed and it's an easy drive to the Port for me, ha! Yes, they offered Bingo on certain days multiple times, including the cruise giveaway Bingo on the last day. Our cruise departed on Saturday so our first sea day was on Sunday which you could consider an "average" day. The Gym opened at 6:00 a.m. (go up to see the gym and spa even if you're not going to use either, fantastic). 8:00 Yoga, 9:00 shops open, slot machines open, 9:15 shopping talk (I'm not a shopper, didn't attend), 9:30 a.m. trivia contest, 10:00 bean bag toss, Win, Lose or Draw game, Library opens, gaming lessons in the Casino, 10:15 Jackpot Bingo, liquor raffle, 10:30 golf seminar, 10:45 travel talk, 12:00 slot tournament, wine tasting, 1:00 ice carving demo, art auction preview, 1:30 men's hairy chest contest, 2:30 newlywed game, 3:00 Bingo, 3:30 tea time, 4:30 trivia contest, 5:00 formal cocktail party and formal dinner, then lots of live music everywhere with the best show of the week "Wonderful World".
rosetattoo, that sounds great. I want to do all the bingo, all the slot tourneys (by the way how many times do they do this in a week?), I want to do the win lose or draw, I want to play more bingo, go to art auctions, gamble , Last year I won a ship on a stick for the contest that had 3 people on stage asking them trivia questions ( that was so so not me, but I want to do it and I WON) It looks like I will need to get a schedule made out on the computer to keep up with all the activities for my family and me. Thanks again ROSETATTOO!!!!!!!
The first night in the casino they offered "low limits" on card games, craps, roulette and Texas Hold Em. Sunday night was a slot tournament, $20 to enter, first prize $500. Monday and Wednesday they had a blackjack tournament. You can also win a car on the $.02 machines. Let's see, on Thursday and Friday there were slot tournaments.
I won one of the trivia contests the last day of the cruise and they ran out of the ships on a stick so they awarded me a medallion on a ribbon.
Todd is back, we just returned from the Liberty 6 day cruise, had a wonderful time. I'm sure you all heard about the jumper the first night we sailed. Glad they found him, but how stupid can you get, I hope they ban him from ever crusing again on any ship.
The Glory's next stop was in St. Maarten. The Liberty did not go there. After St. Thomas, our next port was Antigua, then Tortola. In St. Thomas we took a taxi to Megans Bay Beach, it was beautiful, the sand was so silky soft and the water clear and clean. The last time we went to St. Thomas, everyone kept telling us how "touristy" Megans Bay Beach was so we elected to go to Sapphire Beach instead (nice beach but too quiet, no facilities to speak of just a small, dark, dirty restroom and a little store). While Sapphire Beach was nice, I much preferred Megans Bay Beach...nice beachfront restaurant and bar, restrooms, lounge chair rentals, etc.
On our last cruise to St. Maarten, we took a taxi to Orient Beach which was wonderful, lots of water sports, restaurants, etc.
What shore excursions did you do in St. Thomas and St. Maarten??
