Hope you have a wonderful time. The Enchantment was our first cruise too. I marveled at the size of her back then! Still has to rank up there with one of the best cruises....but I think the first always holds a special place!

Gosh maybe we should do him a list of words that he will need just so he won't get confused.

Fries = Chips
Chips = Crisps

As soon as you get those words sorted everything else falls in to place.

Yes, he needs to use the correct words. Hopefully he will write in proper English...U.S. wording that is.

Have a great cruise. We'll be on the Enchantment on the 27th (so take good care of her). I'm looking foward to reading your posts. It will seem as if we've started our cruise a week early! I hope you'll have time to spend sightseeing in the Baltimore/Washington area after your cruise as well.

?Well ladies and gentlemen, I made it. Checked into the lovely Hilton about ten minutes ago and have to say loving the USA so far. Flight was an absolute pleasure, well aside from one choppy bit where I got a little scared ha ha. Security scared me at first, but the gentleman who took my prints was an absolute pleasure to talk to. We were met at the gate by a very sweet lady, whose name I sadly did not get, and check in at the Hilton was a breeze. Going to relax and shower, then maybe sample some American ales in the bar.

I shall report in tomorrow hopefully from the ship.

Yes we do like a U, lol, but another one is pants, pants is underwear to us but I think thats what you call trousers!

Looking forward to reading your review each day, we have our very first cruise next month, but it will not be our fist time in the US, can't wait. Have a great time.

Yeah, I keep hearing horror stories about the TSA agents, but I keep running into some terrific guys and gals. Mind you, I travel very little these days, as almost all my family is within 10 mins of home...

As far as American ales, I really hope you have a decent bar that has more to offer than the macro brews. There are some really great micro brews to be found, with Troegs, Stoudts and Dogfish Head being just a few of my faves.

Anyway, welcome to the US, hope you have a great time!

Dave
