* Ms Veendam in Port Everglades - Sail a Way - January 14th, 2019

Recommended Posts

It is bound to be a much calmer day in Port Everglades today compared to Sunday, but there is a blue hulled beauty setting to sail with lots of happy passengers on board on two different itineraries.  (And, I bet they are all glad they are boarding Monday and not Sunday 😉 )

 

Veendam is scheduled to sail at 5:00 pm from pier 21.

 

She has two different itineraries today.  The first is the 11 night Southern Caribbean Wayfarer:

FYI - You've got this one going twice Kazu

 

Thanks Copper, I'll see which one I should request they delete.

 

It wouldn't post last night according to CC.  They rejected over and over.

 

I actually nearly had a 3rd as I tore when I woke up to get the thread up and then saw this one.

NS first in at Nassau - right behind her is Conquest - who left PEV/FLL almost an hour ahead of her. We are also supposed to have the 'noro' ship Oasis here today plus Carnival Ecstasy and Jewel of the Seas.

That's good. It was very frustrating last night - I could not even get the thread to load early - about an hour later, I finally was able to view and post.

Why are there so many short responses one after the other?  Cannot you make the responses together?   I had a problem getting into the board last night and I wonder it the threads are being made longer by the short responses.

Just and FYI, something that I didn't know but maybe you all did.  If you are taking a collectors cruise that is a B2B you do not have to attend the second muster...wooohooo!

Sometimes you do but not lately. But always wait for a confirmation letter telling you that you are excused and hang on to it - in case you need to prove it.

I think that varies by captain.
