SSounds like you guys had a good time, Karen! And even thought it is already here and gone, you still have another one very close ahead. You really know how to vacation, always have one or more waiting in the wings. That's what I do, and that's what gets me through the day-to-day stresses.
Am just now checking this board today...we had a great time with the "guys"..Hill at the Schooner Bar and Manny at the Aquarium Bar. Alot of familiar faces onboard (crew). Juan was working in the Cafe Promenade, makeing coffee and ice cream sundaes...First day out to sea was very rough...the worst we have sailed in so far. By the time we got to Bermuda everything cleared and and the rest of the time was great weather and smooth seas. St. Marteen had a "Carnival" going on in town so all the shops were closed...so we just shopped by the dock..it was ok, since we have been to St. Marteen several times before...it just prevented me from buying any jewlery!. San Juan was a short stop 7-1...and we managed to leave 4 people behind...must be they got held up at Senor Frogs!! Not alot of kids onboard, it was a older crowd onboard. Dining was good...had a table next to the captains table...was able to talk waiter into giving me one of the captains dinner desserts...So now we are looking forward to our next cruise Nov 4th. Booked a May 2013 cruise while we were onboard...our fall 2013 trip will be to Hawaii (not a cruise).
I'll bet Russ was happy that the shops in St. Maarten were closed!
We are looking forward to Ed's reunion to see everyone. I am disappointed that we were not able to arrange a mini-reunion all this while, our cruise was half a year ago!!!
On a nicer note, the beginning of the summer is here, or will be very soon, Lots to look forward to!
