Default I'm booked on Splendor woo hoo

We just booked the Splendor for May 2, 2010, check out my new ticker. Isn't it pretty. We booked the Early Saver fare, I hope the price goes down so I can test the program. I'm excited about being on a new ship.

The Splendor sure looked very good when we were docked next to her in Victoria on Wednesday.

I'm doing Mexico on her in April 2010. Cabo San Lucas, Maztalan, and Puerto Vallarta.
This new ship appears enticing and the ports seem to offer something for everyone.

Losing cruise points kicked his butt in gear. I had already done the research plus. I had 9 cruises on my cruise template that were totally costed out including hotel, parking, tax and port fees, tips etc. I designed an excel spreadsheet that links the formulas to the summary page. This is what happens when a financial analyst gets bored.

Snoozeman did the Splendor look small or big next to the Mariner (that is a big ship)?

Default Splendor

I was on the Splendor last week, it looked a little smaller than the mariner of the seas, but we had a covered pool & the big screen & they did not.

Hey everyone, welcome to the Splendor club.
We sail in 75 days and better believe I will have pics to show when I get back.
My TA just got off the ship this past week, she also stayed in a balcony spa cabin..... she assured me that we are going to really enjoy this ship.
She was also on deck 11 like we are and she said the ride was fine... only one day she could really feel anything, but she said it was no worse in their cabin than any other place on the ship. *smile*
I'm getting excited.......

We cruised on the Splendor on her US maiden voyage in November of last year. I was too ill to enjoy anything but she is a beautiful ship.

Now that's a bummer....being sick on vacation ! In April 08 I was sick on the Destiny and this past April I came home from the Holiday sick.
No not sea sickness, but this bad cold which rained on my parade so to speak.
Next April is my Splendor cruise....so I'll take medication. AGAIN !!
