Default Cruise reports by Marylanders

I thought it would be interesting to set up a place to share cruise reports of people from Maryland. This may be a bit self serving as eventually I'll put some of my one here, but this is a starter for now.

This one is from a Maryland cruiser on HAL's Veendam cruising from Rio to Fort Lauderdale.

I just finished reading your travel report from the Enchantment on the other link. I didn't realize we had those two other ones. Most of the sites I visit daily just keep everything in one place.

I did like your blog. I was on the Enchantment from Panama to Ft. Lauderdale a few years ago, and I enjoyed the cruise, but the one thing I didn't like was the WJ in the front of the ship. I like the Radiance class where you can take your food out on the stern and sit and enjoy watching the sea.

Anyone going to Congressional to watch the US Open?
