Fortunately we had gone off to do a tour and etc ourselves But the upbeat was - even though we had booked one cruise we got a 2nd frig refil and also 2 cruises marked on our history., We also got extra minutes on the internet and a 2nd most cruises get together (a cocktail party)"

Yvonne, Did they say why people had to get off the ship for 3 hours between cruises? That would be a surprise to most people. Wouldn't happen to me, as like you, I'd be off that ship sightseeing.

PS I didn't want to hijack the list of cruises thread.
