Hi, Lisa and Tom:

Looking forward to your reports. Hope it is nice and warm where you are. It is windy and cool here still, as you know as you passed through L.A. Have fun.

I think they were trying to get everyone out of the smoky interior as they thought they could get the engines running again. Note that the passengers were not even asked to take their life jackets...

Read John Heald's blog - this should answer almost all your questions. He spells out what happened from the time the event occured until the ship was towed into San Diego. It is a five or six part...

Looking forward to your posts. Hope I can get them when I am in Vegas next week. I've never been on Celebrity so it will be interesting to see what your opinion of the ship is.

Have a fabulous...

Me too. I need a cruise. This has not been a good year for me so far. Hope it turns around and everything goes according to plan.

What a great cruise! Wish I had gone along. You could have hid me in the bathroom or someplace. Oh well. I love the coastal cruises, and am glad NCL has upgraded from the ships I was on. I did...

Looking forward to your posts with a little jealousy. And to get such a nice suite. Say hello to everyone - hope to be with you on Yummers III.
Update???
Lisa, what are your plans re this for 2011? If, God willing, I can afford it, I might want to come along. Wish it was the Western Caribbean as I love Cozumel, etc. But would go wherever as long as...

Hi.

Don't be afraid. Just go with the flow. You will have a great time.

I just booked my 19th cruise and have almost always gone alone. I am 73 years old. It has slowed me down, but I...
Solo Cruising Days are almost Over
Looks like my solo days are about over. I should qualify that to say going on a cruise where I know absolutely no one. If I have friends going, then I will certainly try to go. I turn 73 in a...
I Love My Kindle
I travel solo so I don't need the extra weight of all the books I'd like to read on the cruise, plus I have lost more than one of them on a plane, etc. I have the Kindle 1 and have not yet found a...
Take My Name Off List
I will not be on the Yummers Cruise on the Oosterdam in March, and will probably also have to cancel my cruise on the Sapphire Princess in May.

Can you remove my name? I will update as soon as...

Hey, Patty.

You won't be alone on the Amsterdam on 5/16 - I'm also booked on that cruise. I have a nice outside cabin aft. I almost always cruise alone and will be alone again. Coming up the...

Hi.

I agree that some passengers are not always very nice. I think they think because they paid a lot of money, they are entitled to be snooty or whatever. I try to meet people on the CC message...

Hi.

I am a 72-year old lady who cruises solo most of the time. I have been on RCCL, Princess, NCL, Cunard, HAL, etc., and have had some good and some not so good experiences on several of the...

You can add me to the Yummers II list in February. It's going to be fun to be with my friends from Yummer I again.

I disagree with the last poster. I usually do anytime dining whenever it is offered. I enjoy having the same waiter and being catered to by someone who knows me and cares to take care of me. I can...

I, too, was on the Yummers cruise. Other than being chased to another table due to our earlier dining time, we had wonderful service. We loved having Hunky Dunky as our waiter for that first night,...
