Hello CC World,

We're off to see the wizard!

Wish us luck!!

If there is indeed access to the internet at the cafe (without complete lose of sanity) I will let you know what's what aboard the invincible Crown.

I'm hoping it's not just us and eyewitness news on the pier today.

Having sailed her 6/23, I can tell you that we had the most fabulous cruise we have ever taken. The Staff is just top-knotch, the Captain, Andrew Proctor, skilled and jovial, the food just perfect, a fabulous Maitre D', wonderful musicians (visit Sammy in Adagio, he's awesome!). And the Crown...what a gorgeous ship she is. Hopefully they will have her back in "ship shape" for you all. And please don't worry about the mechanicals. Trust the Coast Guard, NTSB and Princess. They would not knowingly compromise your safety. Relax, enjoy and have a terrific vacation!

We were on the Crown 7/2 sailing and had a WONDERFUL time! The ship and staff are amazing. I hope you have a fantastic vacation. If ANYONE is on deck 9 (Dolphin) and has George (Romania) as a cabin stewart PLEASE tell him that Timothy says hello. My son fell in love with our fabulous stewart...actuallly we all did he was great. Anyway we have been concerned about him and all the other crew members. In the Bott dining room we had Peter (Poland) and Juan (Mexico) if you have them lucky you and if you don't mind please tell them that Timothy says hello as well.
Happy Sailing..you are in for a real treat!!!!!!!!
Oh our cabin was D118 and our dinner table was 30.

Can not wait to see your posts am also going on the Crown in August. Am checking about five times a day to see what is going on. Went to the mall yesterday and picked up some cute stuff to wear all the time questioning my sanity. Thank heavens everyone on the ship survived. I wonder when the real facts will ever be known. I love to cruise and have now become a cruise addict. Bet the bars will be going strong for the rest of this summer. Go for it.
