  1. I would never ever state something I believe to be false. If my post mislead anyone, it was unintentional and I apologize. It was something I read a while back online, I believe attributed to the port of authority, but I cannot find the article now, nor can I find any other article that mentions it. Time will tell.
  2. NY and NJ have announced no sailings out of either state this year. Does that mean January? Who knows? M&M
  3. Sorry the photo came out sideways. Nigel just left for vacation. Adine Barrett left the Gem in LA two days ago to replace him. I don't know of other changes, if any. This was accurate as of January 3 when we debarked.
  4. On March 8, the Food and Beverage Director, Vic, leaves for vacation. Metin takes over that position and Richard Janicki will be back as hotel director. Also, February 25, Claire Booth will be leaving and Lorena Tapia will be back as Cruise Director. Yahira just came on January 27 so one would think she will still be here but nowadays you never know.
  5. Also being cruisers who now do long cruises and tend to make friends on every ship we go on, we have many people emailing us, calling us Mommy and Daddy. When we see them again, we are greeted with very warm hugs from both male and female crew and officers. The Breakaway and the Star each had someone at guest services who, when they saw us, immediately upon finishing with their current customer on a busy embarkation day, came around the corner to give great big hugs to both of us and calling us by name. On the Breakaway, a male server saw us from a distance walking through the Garden Cafe and was not afraid to yell Mommy from across the room as he came to us. Very recently we received an email from another "son" (server) on the Breakaway who is coming back from vacation shortly before we are going there this summer and asked us what he could bring us back from India. I could give many more examples but I have already made this post very long. I also agree that this subject should not be continued, even though I felt compelled to answer the first post. Forgive me.
