Thanks so much for your post. We are sailing on the Pride on January 12th. I would love to see what the deck of a cruise ship looks like with snow on it!! Also, thanks for letting us know when you were setting sail for Miami. I've been wondering that for sometime now! Have a great time on her. I can't wait to board her on January 12th!!!!
