My wife (Mrs. Met), is an avid fan of all things BritishRoyal family and decided we should visit London prior to our sailing. I was quick to agree and learned from herthat tours of Buckingham Palace’s state rooms are available only when QueenElizabeth II visits her summer residence during the months of August andSeptember. This was the main reason we chose this sailing. It was the last around the British Islesthemselves before Caribbean Princess embarked on her Transatlantic voyage toher winter home in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We traveled with 2 other couples who were Princess newbies and werecelebrating 27 and 50 years of marriage respectively.
We conducted lots of research, visited many websites,talked to many company representatives, and greatly enjoyed our planning. What we could not have planned for when wedid all this was that a Category 3 hurricane named Irma would barrel literally,right over our house in Naples, FL which was occupied by our dog Maui and hersitter Evelyn on the day we sailed. Weare very pleased to report that aside from some blown out pool cage panels,missing roof tiles, and a water spot in our living room ceiling, we were verylucky and made out much, much better than many other people in the area. Maui and Evelyn were troopers and ourincredible neighbors and friends made sure they were well looked after untilour return to Naples. There is much tobe cleaned up in the area and there is still much suffering by those who wereless fortunate in terms of damage, but the community has come together in waysthat would make anyone proud. Our friendstraveling with us had damage to their lanais, but were also lucky not to haveany major damage to their houses.
