Hi All,

Come along with me on this Fabulous 107 day around the World Cruise on the Beautiful Royal Princess?

We leave for Atlanta airport in a few hours, staying overnight there. A last minute change as we have snow & ice here in the Mountains of NC, with more expected today & tonight & Freezing weather. Not a good combination for safe driving to ATL, about a 3 hr drive & leaving at 3AM in the Dark would not be so good either in these conditions.

Will be in Ft Lauderdale at 10:30 AM, in less that 24 hrs , & then have lunch with my Boys (they live in Delray Beach, up the road) before boarding the Royal at about 1:30 PM.

I'm going to start my 'Live' from... now & get the ball rolling.............

I should be available early this evening for any questions or comments.

My Best,
Bill

PS, I'll be looking for Volunteers to post pics daily if possible, like we did on the 51 day Live from the Pacific Princess in the Spring of 2007 for a Trans-Pacific (Sydney to Anchorage)

Looking forward to reading your posts. We will be on the Royal Princess June 1 and can't wait to hear about the ship and your ports. We were on the Pacific Princess last June but know that there are a few differences on the Royal.
Safe Travels! Gail

I'll be keeping up with your posts. What a wonderful trip you have ahead of you. We met a couple on an Alaska cruise last summer who were also booked for the Royal world cruise but I can't remember their names. If you play team trivia you'll run into them. Ohhh...I did remember that bit of trivia. They are Jeanie and Wayne.

We are at the foot of the Blue Ridge and there is no snow here. Just get safely off (down) the mountain. Have a great cruise.

Well Bill, I will not try to sound to jealous, but have a great time. I am at least 20 years away from any grand voyage like this but I have already started scoping them out. Would love all the details as you go.

Have a great time

Bill... are you in a suite with unlimited internet, or have they allowed you more time because of the World Cruise?

This will be handy and if I post it now it should be on page 1.
It will give the current position of Royal Princess plus the current bridge cam.
