I'm not on the Summit yet, not even close! I'm at NY Laguardia airport now waiting to board our flight to San Juan.

I want to start the thread now so if anyone has any questions (including airport, etc), I may be able to check it out before it's too late. So ask away! However, I can't guarantee I will be able to answer all. So I want to apologize in advance.

Be back in a few!

We are on this cruise too. Currently in the Marriott getting ready to go to the ship. Well...my wife is getting ready, I'm laying around reading cruise critic! Yesterday was beautiful weather. Perfect beach weather all morning then some clouds rolled in. Today it is raining with pretty thick clouds. I hope embarkation is on time.

Thank you everyone!

We've safely landed. It was a long line to baggage claim. I didn't remember this part of the terminal when we came here last year.



We decided to take a taxi to the terminal , they say it's quicker this way. We're actually in the taxi right now on our way to the terminal.



We're in an inside cabin only. I'm sorry I may not be able to help you with other cabins.

I've taken notes of your questions and requests and I'll try to log back in tonight.

I'll be back

Why do I already think I am going to love your review?

Please post who the Hotel Director and the Captain are. Trying to get one more cruise in before summer and hope it will be Sheldon and Costas.

Have a fantastic cruise on my favorite ship.

Lovley pics so far, when you are posting about who the staff are on board - and I will be interested in the Captains Club rep as well - if you are able can you let us know how much longer they are on for, that would be brilliant

Have a wonderful trip

If you really wanna know where you can find me

You should lose track of your timing

She wants to be where the summer won’t stop,
She wants gin clear water and milk white sand,
A sunburned nose and a drink in her hand
With a pink umbrella on top!... Gaelic Storm
