Very excited to follow along! I have a health issue that came out of nowhere in July with no symptoms, for which I'm now being treated, so unfortunately no cruises for awhile.

But I can "travel" vicariously through others which I will do with you. I'm also following Vicki 's blog on her Med cruise.

Bon voyage!

After reading your blog I've realised that I'll be on the Golden at the same time as you in December, so I may see you on board.

This should be an exciting cruise season for you and G. The Golden was our first Princess cruise and is the reason Princess is our favorite cruise line. I was hoping you would be sailing on the Crown in December because I was hoping to meet you. But maybe some other year. I follow your blog closely and have gone back and read all the previous blogs. Have a great three months of cruising.
