No one else out there. Ken and I are going to have the whole ship to ourselves. There has to be some more people coming - is it just too far away?

Greetings, all! DH (Dick) and I (Janet) have just booked this cruise. We're from Williamsburg, VA and were bummed when Baltimore trumped Norfolk for homeporting Enchantment! Guess it'll be a 3-1/2 hour trek up I-95 instead of a 45 minute drive to get to the ship!

Anyway...we've been cruising with RCCL for 25 years and have loved evey one. We sailed out of Baltimore on Grandeur a few times and like the convenience of the terminal. We usually come up the day before, spend time at the inner harbor and have a great dinner in Little Italy.

We're hoping that Captain Rob will be on duty when we cruise next March. He's a great guy and we've had the pleasure of dining with him a couple of times when he was captain of Grandeur. Lots of time between now and sailaway to make plans. Looking forward to chatting with everyone as the time passes.

Hi Janet and Dick. Welcome aboard. Ken and I have cruised on the Grandeur 3 times. I am hoping we will get to know and enjoy the Enchantment just as much.

We cruised on Enchantment a number of years ago before she was "stretched." I'm curious to see the changes that were made to her.

We "officially" booked this cruise during our Farewell Mercury Cruise. So now we have to figure out about Tortola. We know all the other ports, and what we might want to do.
It seems like to long till this one comes down the pike - good thing we have a few things scheduled in between.

Hi everyone,

I have just signed on for this cruise. Lots of time for us to get acquainted, and swap cruising stories....although I don't have many cruises under my belt. I just had to cancel an Apr '11, and an Apr '12 cruise so I have a strong determination to make this one!

Gail, I see that you are cruising with friends of mine on the 3/21...DeltaBlue and DH. Talk her into reserving this cruise while you guys are on the 3/21.

Hope to get to know all you guys, and will look forward to meeting everyone at the M&M. Oh by the way, I will be in GS 8040.

Welcome aboard Shirley. Yes we are sailing with Delta & DH. In fact we are having a pre-cruise dinner on Sunday. Our thread on that cruise is over 210 pages. Hope we get more to jump on here.
