Wow what a great ship. We got to the port around 12:30 and on the ship by 1:00 it was painless. We are going to go met some of the other members early at the blue moon tonight. Thanks for everybodys help in planing this trip.

Please continue to post throughout your cruise, if you find the time! Really looking forward to seeing this ship on the 6/26 sailing!
One thing I'd like to know is what day do you think is better to see the Ice Show? What does it conflict with?

Thanks, and have a great time!

Thanks for posting!

I was glad to hear that embarkation was quick since my flight from Tampa arrives at 10:45 am and I will be anxious to get aboard.

I hope you keep posting so all of us future cruisers can feel like we're there already

Ok guys the Cruise Director is Richard Spacey. He is just totaly the best. Went to the mariage show tonight and the ice show. Both were great. We did the ice show tonight at 9:15 was best for us. We have early seating and we were done in aruba. Some people went back out and arejust now coming back from Carlos and Charlies. I don't know when lobster night is but our next formal is Thursday. It is 12:30 am time to get a cold one head up on deck to watch us leave at 1:00

What color are the bedspreads in the E1 cabins? (just kidding) Do you find the Voyager class ship TOO big? I know it is a personal opinion, but just wondering how you compare it to your previous cruises.

Hi to Kelli and Ray. Since the Rascal cruise I have gotten into the travel business and doing what I love to do (research cruises). How do you compare the Voyager class to the Radiance? I see you have been on the Voyager. I'd also like to know what you thought of Caribbean Princess. Thanks so much.

Like everyone else, can't wait until our "Adventure".
