and so you should..... I dont know the numbers of course but got them online. I walked the beam of the Mariner so I know it was way wider than the Solstice. The newer ones of RCL are indeed monsters now. BTW there is another trip to AK on a Newer bigger RCL for next summer to celebrate my birthday (and other things) lol If you are interested.

If anyones interested contact your Redmond Friend.

One other problem in you sailing with us cyclebiff. We get together almost exclusively on Celebrity ships so from your cruising history, it doesn稚 look like we would ever run into you. Sorry.

I’m planning a trip to Italy next summer with my sister and her neighbor who is from Sardinia and we plan to just wing it for three weeks. I want to go back to Rome and to Florence and to Venice.
Leaving for our Baltic cruise on the 7th and getting very excited and a little nervous.
Just got back from a week of the Harmony. Second largest ship now as Symphony is 2 inches larger. She is a behemoth. The ice show and the Broadway production of Grease were grand. And the Aquashow was spectacular. You can’t tell you are on a ship, though. I think you would have to have 30 foot seas to get any rocking and rolling.
The Diamond Lounge was nice but the food was terrible.

I keep watching that Canada/New England cruise on the Summit for interline rates. We just might book it if I can get a good interline rate close to sailing. You never know.

Someone's been watching, "Airplane!" Great line! That reminds me of something I have to share although it may loose something in the translation.

On our HAL cruise to Hawaii in April, we attended a group trivia. You could have 8 people per group. One of the questions was, "What is the captain's name?" One of the groups wrote, "Captain Marc Speaking." That was not his surname, but when we all looked puzzled one of the group informed us that each day he gets on the mike and says, "This is Capatin Marc speaking from the bridge." I laughed so hard I almost fell off of my chair. Clever people!

It amazes me how much technical information some of you know about ships! I'm impressed! I just enjoy the ride, I guess.

Speaking of anniversaries, we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary on June 25th and plan to commemorate the occasion by visiting Cape Alguhas, the southernmost point of the African continent, and finding nice place for dinner, at least that's the plan! After Terry's accident, we know plans can change!

Have a nice Memorial Day weekend, everyone!
