Hi

Just solidified hotel for Star Repo in Tampa. We're flying down on Saturday (though flights won't be made for awhile) so only one night in Tampa before the cruise. Do we need to make advance reservations for the shuttle to the hotel from the airport ? to the cruise terminal ? We will not be seeing D's daughter this trip because we want to spend tim with you all.

I don't have any information on the shuttle to the hotel, or even if there is a shuttle to the hotel. To get to the cruise terminal, we could walk.....or there is some sort of transportation we can pick up right outside the hotel.

Hope DD1 isn't having second thoughts about living with her sister...

DD! is off to NJ with DD2. Hotel is cheaper than the CTW. So that cancels out 2/12 Jewel cruise. Contemplating Spirit NOLA as she is being retired and I love her so much.

I hope all works out well for the girls...and wish them luck.

I would love to get on the SPIRIT again as well, but it just isn't going to happen with her being retired...

Just took Wayne and Winkie out to dinner tonight, celebrating father's day a bit early since we are meeting cruise friends in Bar Harbor on Sunday when they are in port.

If we do - it will be very last minute - Denny is doing well and his 2nd surgery is scheduled for 8/15 so it appears that the doctor is aiming for every 2-3 months. He says he plans on coming up around Labor Day to see Lindsay's new house after Dede move in and then again in early December.

If I get enough warning - it may happen ... we'll see ... Love to you both

To all the men who are Dads,
To all the men who are Grandfathers and Greats and Great Greats,
To all the brothers, uncles and other men who are integral figures in a child's life,
To all the women who are both Mom and Dad ...

Happy Father's Day.

I know you'll do what you can, when you can...we understand life does get in the way of cruising sometimes.

Post Old Gem 2010 Email Concerning St. Lucia

Dear Valued Travel Partners and Guests,
The oceans on which we sail our ships are of the utmost importance to NCL. We've recently been alerted by the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that they are placing mandatory restrictions on vessel speeds
in the New York area because of marine life migratory patterns. Therefore, in order to comply, we have made some
changes to Norwegian Gem's 10-Day Southern Caribbean itinerary sailing on January 24, 2010.
Because of these speed restrictions and in order to provide the best possible guest experience, we have modified the
itinerary as follows: Norwegian Gem will now call on San Juan, Puerto Rico instead of Castries, St. Lucia.
Please review the revised itinerary below:

Original Arrive Depart
Sun New York City, New York 4:00 pm
Mon At Sea
Tue At Sea
Wed St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands noon 7:00 pm
Thu St. John's, Antigua 8:00 am 5:00 pm
Fri Castries, St. Lucia 8:00 am 4:00 pm
Sat Philipsburg, St. Maarten 8:00 am 6:00 pm
Sun Tortola, British Virgin Islands 7:00 am 1:00 pm
Mon At Sea
Tue At Sea
Wed New York City, New York 9:00 am

Revised Arrive Depart
Sun New York City, New York 4:00 pm
Mon At Sea
Tue At Sea
Wed San Juan, Puerto Rico 3:00 pm 11:59 pm
Thu St.Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands 9:00 am 6:00 pm
Fri St. John's, Antigua 8:00 am 5:00 pm
Sat Philipsburg, St. Maarten 8:00 am 5:00 pm
Sun Tortola, British Virgin Islands 7:00 am 1:00 pm
Mon At Sea
Tue At Sea
Wed New York City, New York 10:00 am
We appreciate your understanding and continued support of Norwegian Cruise Line. Should you have any questions,
please call us at (800) 327-7030 Monday to Friday 8 am to midnight Eastern Time or Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 9 pm
Eastern Time and we will be happy to assist you.
Sincerely,
Crane Gladding
Senior Vice President, Passenger Services & Revenue Management


And we've had the same itinerary since then.
