Not yet but in a couple of weeks we are doing another short cruise to Belgium so we could be...mind you last year we were flying out in December, & we had airports closed the week before due to snow.

Those are great photos for sure.

If my DW were to be have been in that ship, she would not want to cruise again.

YIKES,
Cruising and snow just don't go together, unless you are in Alaska, but even then, you shouldn't see snow onboard like this...

The first storm of the year hit the East Coast as our cruise got to St. Thomas. Was so glad our was a repositioning cruise and not heading back to Bayonne.

This was a press trip,that left from Boston. We knew bad weather was coming, so we left early for the short drive,and boarded before the storm started. The ship stayed in port to try and let people stuck wherever get onboard.

To see the crew who had never seen snow before, really was one of our highlights. Some made snow angels, some took pictures of it, and sent it to the far off places,they call home.

Seeing snow shoveled off the sides of the ship, and, into the pool, is one cool memory

I thought of the crew as I showed the pictures to my DW. Most crew we have met have been from warm weather countries. It must have been quite a shock.
