Tomorrow will be the last time we will see Royal Princess in Port Everglades for some time.  She leaves tomorrow for a repositioning cruise to the West Coast, sailing around the Horn to Los Angeles.

We will still have Regal Princess.

 

I recently returned from a Royal Princess cruise and found it interesting that they don't use the Love Boat theme very often.  At sailaway from Port Everglades and at St. Maarten when P & O's Azur was sailing (the two ships were having a "toot fest" ) were the only times I heard the theme.

A red banner?  A red tshirt?  Not sure what the square is (but I'm not the smartest tool in the shed, sometimes).

 

The pool at ES sounds so inviting.  Love that atmosphere.

 

Have a great cruise and we'll be watching and waving to you.

We will pass the Royal Princess in the middle of the night some time between Buenos Aires and Santos, Brazil.

And here I thought the christening was done at launch or before first cruise.

Have a great cruise on what appears to be the new Queen of Toots.  Must feel great to be out of PA right now.  I wonder if there will be a tootfest between NS and Oostie today.
