I like that one!!

It's like a saying I made up, "You'll always find what you're looking for, so look for the best in everything."

Some people are scared of their own shadows.

But the ones that get me the most are the ones who want to find fault with everything or everybody. They're always looking for problems. And as I said, you'll always find what you're looking for, so these people will always find negative things to complain about because that's what they want to find.

But I'm with Manuel; having survived Vietnam, every day is a gift! And I try my best to enjoy that gift every day.

As the saying goes, "Every day above ground is a good day!"

Back to the Millennium, yes, they seem to have their fair share of problems with that one. I remember many years ago when it was still new they had problems with the engines and they filed suit against the company - don't know what ever became of that one, but I'm guessing they're not using them anymore since none of the other ships are having the same constant problems.

I'm also guessing they'll be moving this to a port like Freeport in the Bahamas or perhaps someplace on the West Coast where they can accomplish longterm repairs. So when you figure they're having to cancel at least 4 cruises plus a non-revenue repositioning cruise, this is going to be a very expensive breakdown for them.

I have friends onboard and have been in contact with them. Lots of issues and miscommunications going on, so it'll be interesting to see how Celebrity comes out of this reputation-wise.
