"LIVE" From the Allure of the Seas - 15 - 22 January 2012

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone and Welcome to our First of Five Cruises on RCI in 2012.

 

I am typing from beautiful Palm Coast, FL.

 

Tonight I will be installed as the Vice Commodore of the Palm Coast Yacht Club in a formal "Change of Watch" ceremony. Because of this, we will leave early Sunday morning for the for the 4 1/2 hour drive to Fort Lauderdale. If all goes well tonight I may have a photo or two to post up tomorrow of tonight's installation.

 

We will be on the Western Caribbean Itinerary. Here are the details:

Mark your calendars:

 

April 5, 2012 - 9 night B-2-B on the Jewel of the Seas

 

October 19, 2012 - 28 night B-2-B on the Vision of the Seas with both a West Bound and an East Bound full transit of the Panama Canal.

 

Spotty says he is going to miss us.

We will miss him and Red Dog and Baxley and our two cats, Max and Dixie. We have found an excellent Pet Sitter who comes to our home every day, feeds everyone, plays with them for awhile, and cleans up after them.

 

Happy Cruising Everyone...

I did the Chukka Beach Break in Falmouth last April when I was there on the Navigator. I thought it was great. The beach was very nice and the lunch that was provided was good. I would definitely recommend the excursion.

I did this excursion twice - last Feb on Navigator and in July on Allure. Would definitely recommend this if you want to relax on a beautiful, quiet beach.

The installation ceremony at the Yacht Club was really nice.

 

I won't have the "official" photos for awhile but here are two "quickies" of us showing off our new Yacht Club Uniforms outside the club with the canal in the background.

It is 10:15 as I type this and I hope to roll the lovely Judith out of bed early enough that we can be in the car and out the driveway by 6 am.

 

M next post will be "Live From the Allure" Sunday afternoon or evening.
