I think April 25th, 2011 will be the last time you will see the Fascination heading out on a cruise From Jacksonville. Goodbye Jacksonville.

I'll try to take pics on that day too, if you let me know when. We LOVE going down to watch the ship sail!

Yes, I heard about that. However, the fat lady has not sung yet... I think she works for the government.

You are welcome. I put it on our calendar. If everything works out, we will wave at you and take some pics. That way your kids can say... 'we were right there'! We will be starboard side on a small beach. The ship usually gets to our spot around 5:30 p.m. Have a safe trip!

I love it too and also live in a port city. I took pics of the last time NCL Majesty left Charleston and the first one of Fantasy leaving on her first trip out of Charleston.

Your pics are great I sure wish (fingers crossed) they would add the balconies to the Fantasy during it's next drydock this fall.

Thank you so much for the pictures. I am trying to get a large family group together for April 16,2011 and they had so many questions about where the balconies were/weren't, etc, that you just made it so much simpler for me to explain. It's very nice of you to post pictures of "the trip" people are on, for a keepsake.

Wow! If I had known all of you would enjoy these so much, I would have done it long ago Let me know if you want me to try to take pics of your specific departure... I'll try my best. I enjoy going to the river a lot and would gladly take YOUR pics if my schedule allows.

Happy sailing, everyone!

We sail on the 12. I'll look for ya'll on the beach and wave.

After seeing this last night, I had the weirdest dream. Apparently, I didn't realize that we were supposed to be onboard before she set sail. I was floating down the river, pushing a very large man (I have no idea who he was) that was laying on a pool float. When she went under the bridge, I said, "Aww man, I wanted to be on deck for that." So I climbed the bridge supports so I could hop on board and see a little bit of it. I don't know where the big man went and that's all I remember. I'm sure the wine I drank had a little to do with all that too, though.
