Luggage didn't arrive til after dinner--no problemn shorts first night.Was inform at dock they wouldn't be stopping in Montego Bay was issued $ 50.00 credit on Sign & Sail card. Went to Grand Cayman thur. Stingray city with Capt Marvin's good deal started to rain after trip not bad been there before. Fri Mexico rained hard all day.

 

Second night wore black tux spent millions on Pictures(but looked good)

Third dinner at Point great dinner, not really worth the $60.00 bucks temp in Point was about 50 degrees wore suit have to give jacket to wife.

 

Third night great food sport coat. wife went to SPA had a couple of treatments, she also went Sat for a rub--cost too high, but good

I've sailed since the 70's on about seven different cruise line and really had a good time aboard the Conquest. I've been to all the ports so I like the shipboard experience,but that's my thing

Sorry about the car. We parked at the Holiday Inn and had no problems. We sat right next to you at dinner. Were you at a table for 2. We were at a table for 2, 578!

So sorry to hear about your car. We are leaving out of New Orleans in November and that is my biggest fear. Glad you had a great time.

Someone mentioned Todd was going on break soon - did he mention it?

Skip, was that the Maison St. Charles? We are booked there in Sept......Now I'm worried. We just bought a Tahoe and my BF tells me that that is the most popularly stolen vehicle.....great....

Yes it the sameTodd and he didn't say anything about leaving before dry dock.

 

No about the Hotel. I stayed at The St Charles Inn 3636 St Charles Ave and their parking lor is around the corner shared with the hospital-Allright Parking. Save me the 12 bucks parking fee per day and cost me around $750.00 for the week. Good deal HuH

I'm glad to hear Todd is still there and since he didn't say anything about going I will assume he will be there next week. If not I hear the rest of the group is pretty good also.

We stayed at Holiday Inn-Superdome and parked in their covered garage for $5 a night, no problems with car. The captain is Massimo Marino, which if anyone watches Bold and the Beautiful ,is almost identical in name to a main character!
