Great commentary Paul-I feel like I was on the cruise with you! One question-is the Solstice changing its itinerary in Feb? Friends of ours are sailing on Feb.15 and told us they would be in Tortola on the 19th. We are on "another" cruise and will be there the same day. We's planned on hooking up but you never mentioned Tortola and I'm wondering if our friends have it wrong. Hope the debark goes as well as the rest of the cruise!
