Default Dolphin IV

I wonder how many of you got your initial addiction to cruising with a cruise on the "old" Dolphin IV. She was my first two cruises and of course now terminally hooked. Found the food to always be very good and the staff was just great. Seems the crew makes an extra effort to make this old ship lots of fun.

Hi H.

Never been on the Dolphin, but everybody has to start someplace. My first cruise was a cruise to Tahiti on the Royal Viking Sea - 18 years ago.

Just read on another board that Dolphin, in for normal drydock maint, repairs found to the tune of $3.5 mil and Cape Canaveral Cruise line will fold. Don't know other details or how reliable the posting is.

There was a report from Orlando, Fl. TV station this very evening that Cape Canaveral Cruise Lines has decieded to quit the cruise business. There sole ship I believe is the Dolphin isn't it? This decision was apparently made when they drydocked the Dolphin for repairs and maintanance and when adding up the costs it was determined to be too expensive and cost-prohibitive to continue. This is JUST a report from a TV station so as far as I am concerned it is not confirmed until someone like Tim or Paul or Anne can verify it. I've never sailed this ship and really never planned on it but it did fit a nitch and will be missed.

I know exactly what you mean. I sailed on the Dolphin IV (very first cruise) November 97. It was a good deal for an outside
cabin. I didn't miss having a phone or TV because I had never
experienced it before. We were planning a another cruise
before we got off the ship. We picked the Disney Magic (May 98)
I was completely hooked! My next one was NCL Sky (November 98)
Missed out on my usual six month because I found good deals
on other travel. Went to Cancun, Mexico all inclusive resort
(November 99) thinking I wouldn't miss a cruise because it's
similiar. Boy was I wrong, even my husband said he missed
having a cruise that time and he gets sea sick. I never thought
I would hear him say that! I guess deep down he is addicted
too! I have no problem getting him to agree to a cruise
now. I think the water is just really relaxing. We would
go more often if he didn't insist on a balcony. I can
live without a balcony but he can't.

I'm booked on the Grand Princess (May 27,2001) and we are
planning a Panama Canal on Princess, Mini Suite (November 19, 2001) so I guess we are back on schedule for every six months
it's cruise time.

How many cruise have you been on since that first Dolphin IV
trip?
