Default Amazing!

I am so proud of the outpouring of poem entries to the Liberty of the Seas contest -- there were so many really wonderful ones that it was really tough to winnow choices down to five. But we had to. If you're one of the five, congrats. If not, trust me when I say it was a hard call

Best,

Carolyn

I just wanted to thank Cruise Critic for including me among these other talented poets and to wish everyone good luck.

BecciBoo-If I win, is it OK if I just shake the Captain's hand?

Default Congratulations to All!

I enjoyed being creative and sorry that I wasn't selected. However, I am so proud of my DH, Barnisdad!

Thank you Cruise Critic for conducting this wonderful contest...how many cups of coffee to read through all of the poems? Glad I wasn't in your shoes!

Grazie Mille!

Good Luck to the winner who ever it my be, You all did a fantastic job.

I agree Carol, I already complained a bit on the British thread about the unfortunate legal stuff. Shoulda been open to everybody.
