Our documents came in the mail last night! :D

I'm really looking forward to sailing on the Harmony for the first (and last) time. I'm especially looking forward to meeting all of the other cruise critic members who happen to be on this sailing.

Has anyone planned a get together yet?

Hi Tiffany!

We're still awaiting our documents, and checking the mail eagerly every day. DH and I had a "taste" of Crystal in May when we enjoyed a 2-night sailing on the Harmony. We feel very lucky to be sailing on her one last time.

She's a beautiful ship, and it's nice you'll have an opportunity to sail the original Crystal ship. And, as an added bonus, you won't have to spend Thanksgiving with the relatives.... :D

Board as early as possible (noonish?) and savor every minute. Do NOT nap through Tea as we did our second day. :(

See you in a few weeks, Carla

Pamperme,
You and Lane are already well known on the Harmony! You're the last two people to get off the ship in Vancouver! Don't you remember the search party that was sent to look for you? Michael intervened and said he knew who the two passports belonged to.
So happy that you two can now stay onboard and not have to get off for 7 days! Looking forward to seeing you two again and celebrating Thanksgiving with you!

Hi Patty! Sadly our attempt to stowaway was foiled. :( We honestly thought the ship sailed out of Vancouver at 5:00, as that was the time shown online.

We had the BEST time that day! :D Crystal really should hire you. And if it weren't for you, we wouldn't be going on the final sailing. Life is good. And just think--neither of us has to do the dishes after dinner! Like I do that at home anyway....:p

As Joan Rivers says, "can we talk?" Mark my words...one of these days we're going to do a holiday cruise. And I can only hope it will be on Crystal !!

Hi everyone!

I'm so excited about not cooking...you have no idea!

Carla and Patty...I look forward to meeting you live and in person.

Our vacation really starts on the 17th. We're taking my father out for "thanksgiving" to our favorite restaurant (which will only prepare us for the 7 days ahead of us). Then, Friday morning we wake up...drop the dogs at the kennel and head over to Long Beach.

Can hardly wait!

Tiffany,
I, too, am excited about not cooking. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my family (usually have about 70 for dinner) for the past 18 years and think it's time for a break! Everyone was 'stunned' I would not be home to cook. No cleaning, no shopping, no cooking, no clean up! Yeaaahhhhh! I'm going to let Crystal do the cooking for me!
Looking forward to meeting you in person. Can you believe the final cruise is finally here?
Heard there was a farewell party onboard the Harmony last Saturday for the employees (home office included). Guess that's why they had a 9pm departure from LA? I checked and ours is still set for 5pm.

Hi Patty,

My family too was shocked when I announced we were sailing away. I'm the planner and cook in my family and I'm leaving 15 people up in arms. But that's okay...I need a break!

I can't believe we're so close. Only 3 weeks away...I can't wait!

What time do you think I can board? We're arranging for a car and I want to get there as early as we can.

Thanks!
