IM GOING TO BE AS STRAIGHT TO THE POINT AS I CAN. SORRY IF IT IS A LITTLE CHOPPY IM JUST WRITING FROM WORK AND HAVE TO TYPE FAST. MY BOSS WILL KILL ME IF HE SEES ME ONLINE.

I LOVEDDDD THIS SHIP.. THE STAFF WERE GREAT.. MIKE THE CRUISE DIRECTOR WAS THE BEST.

FOOD...
I'M REALLY NOT A BUFFET PERSON BUT I FOUND MYSELF GOING TO THE GARDEN CAFE FOR BREAKFAST EVERY MORNING LOL I DONT KNOW IF IT WAS BECAUSE I WOULD WAKE UP LATE AND THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE TO GO OR WHAT BUT I LIKED IT. AT FIRST I DIDNT LIKE IT BECAUSE THERE WERE ALOT OF CROWDS BUT IF YOU GO TO THE BACK OF IT THERE ARE ALOT OF SEATS.
FOR I FOUND MYSELF GOING TO AQUA ALOTTT I THINK I WAS THERE 5 NIGHTS OUT OF 7. I ENJOYED IT BECAUSE IT WAS NOT AS DRESSY AS THE OTHERS. I ALSO ATE AT THE STEAK HOUSE AND LOVED IT... IT WAS VERY TINY BUT THE FOOD WAS THE BEST ON THE SHIP. I'M TELLING YOU EVEN THO THERE IS A COVER CHARGE DO NOT PASS THIS UP.

SHOWS...
THE SHOWS WERE GOOD. I LOVEDDDDD BOLLYWOOD. AT FIRST I WAS A LITTLE SCARED TO SEE WHAT IT WAS GOING TO BE ABOUT BECAUSE YOU WALK INTO THE THEATER AND ALL YOU HEAR IS INDIAN MUSIC... SORRY BUT THATS NOT THE KIND OF MUSIC I AM INTO. BUT BY THE END OF THE SHOW I WAS HOOKED!!! THERE IS ONE SINGER FROM THE JEAN ANN RYAN COMPANY WHO I FEEL NEEDS TO QUIT WORKING FOR NCL AND GET A REAL RECORD DEAL. HIS NAME IS ERIC. NO LIE BUT I THINK HE IS THE BEST GUY PREFORMER ON THE SHIP.
ALSO THERE WAS A CHINEESE JUGGLER WHO WAS 1 OF THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE I EVER MET. HE WILL HAVE YOU LAUGHING SO MUCH THAT YOU END UP CRYING..

SORRY GUYS I WILL FINISH THIS SOMETIME TODAY I HAVE TO RUN TO A MEETING

dorothyl - we're going the week before you. 9/12 - 9/19. September seems so so so far away - but ... at least we have something to look forward to. Not depressed that the cruise is over
