Thank you for the vacation! I needed that... I'm sure by now you are off the ship, and NOT liking the chilly weather! (can make you think what was I doing at that ICE BAR the other night, preparing myself?) I have to wait until Jan 4th for our 12 day's to explore the ship and all it's tasty venues! But as I said Thank you for the extra vacation wk.

Thanks again for the excellent report and pictures. Will be sailing also January 4 with the above poster and a whole bunch of the NUTz! Special congratulations on your twin granddaughters. Such a wonderful thing to come home to, someone said it already, bet it's the first time you're anxious to get off a cruise! Mine is 15 months old and I cannot wait until she's old enough to appreciate getting on a cruise with grandma and grandpa!

Hello everyone. . . Welcome to DAY 8 of "LIVE" from Norwegian Breakaway.

I tried to get some shut eye early last night, but I just wanted to watch some of the production show (Burn the Floor). Wow, it was filled with great music, and very skilled dancers. . .I wish I could have watched the whole show, but I was worn out and needed to just rest my head (or as some may call it, "watch the news")

I woke up very early for my last morning on board and it was very dark and very cold outside. I skipped breakfast and just had a couple of coffees' as needed to get off of the ship very early.

Anoop asked the Haven guests to meet him in the Haven at 7:15. He suggested that we would be escorted off when the ship was cleared.
At 7:25 we went to a private elevator (next to the Haven restaurant galley) I was off the ship 3 min. later. We walked to customs, and was in my car by 745.

I made it home today by should be home by 11 AM. I should be able to post many more pics in the next several day. Here are a few pics from last night and this morning.




Thanks for tuning in.


Radio

Did you notice if Drew was back as part of the Howl at the Moon team? He was on inMay and was so awesome but I thought I heard he left (vacation?) soon after our sailing. Hoping he's there again in 2 weeks!
He was there the week before Radio sailed. We LOVED Drew at Howl at the Moon! We were there 4 different nights!!!

This is great news. Loved him in May but he said he was leaving that week ( or soon after) for his leave. If he was there week before last and they follow the same pattern of 6 on, 3 off, he'll be there in two weeks! Yeah!
