Caribbean Princess, 13 April 2008 (B2B)
Grand Princess, 27 February 2009 (Oh Yeah)
Monarch of the Seas, 22 March 2010 (and WDW afterwards). Fingers Crossed! YES, made it.
Emerald Princess, 7 April to 16 May 2011 (B2B2B -(fingers crossed again). Had to cancel 7 and 27 April due to bereavement. Still hope to do 17 April. Made the 17th April with daughter, son and girlfriend. Scattered DH's ashes at sea, as he wanted.

Celebrating our 45th Anniversary on the Emerald. Did get there for anniversary but not quite as we'd planned.
