Default Victory 1-30 review

Suffering from severe PCD, but here goes.
Embarkation- Yes, it was that bad. Streets closed because of the marathon, ship late to port. 2 1/2 hours to board. But then met a really great couple who we will remain friends with, so good goes with the bad.
Ports-
Cozumel- spent most of the day at Paradise Beach, met Tom, had a wonderful time. My DH and a friend went scuba diving and met the girls here after. Went back to the ship to regroup, did some shopping and drinking.
Grand Cayman- Went on Capn Bryan's Buccaneer tour to Stingray City and 2 snorkel stops. I hope the pics turn out because it was incredible.
Ocho Rios- Toured with John from A-Z Jamaica Planners. Did Dunn's River Falls', River Tubing, and a little shopping. Another incredible day.
Didn't do the shows, but enjoyed the piano bar and Survivor game. Won money on the slots almost every day.
It was a good cruise, but no cruise is as good as the first, right? I need to book another!
We will be doing a web page with pics ASAP, but meanwhile, feel free to ask questions or visit our Destiny cruise page at http://www.wessb.com/Cruise/index.htm

Glad you had a good cruise, Sally! Did you ever get my message (couldn't make the scheduled meet & greet)?

Rita,

Monday and Friday were formal nights.

La Croisiere,
I didn't get the message. The meet & greet didn't go well. I met Runner, actually met him in line at embarkation. Apparently we missed Seacat and Heidi. My friend met them. I don't know what happened with all that.

Sally

Hi Sally, It was very nice meeting you and your husband at the Ionian Lounge. We had a wonderful time, the cruise went so quickly. Did the blue team win?

Sally, I'm sorry to hear that. I wonder if I got your room number wrong . . . 8266?

Anyway I hope you had a good time!! We had a great time until I got sick on Thursday evening.

La Croisiere,

Yes that is the right room number. I got messages from others, I can't understand why I didn't get yours.
We went with 2 other couples. One of the girls got the flu on the second day. She spent a lot of time in her room.
The other couple got the flu on the last day. I guess I'm lucky, I didn't get sick.
