Default MORE Millennium Engine Problems

Good Morning all!

As you know, am currently on the Millennium in the Mediterranean. Today is 'SUPPOSED' to be our port day in Alexandria, Egypt for tours into Cairo.

Last evening at dinner, there was quite a bit of vibration. Around 11:30 pm the announcement was made that there was a propeller engine problem and that arrival would be delayed until 11:15 am into Alexandria (instead of 7:00 am). Tour changes are supposed to be in process. In the door this morning is yet another, although slight, arrival delay notice, not 11:30 am.

No announcements this morning from the staff as to what is happening, beginning to wonder at all if we are going to even get to Cairo at all.

Fingers crossed....

CA ...

That rots! I was eager to see if you would describe Cairo in the same colorful terms as did our own Anne Campbell. (Not in public, of course.)

I had nothing to do with it-- honest ! I hope whatever the problem is -it's minor and the rest of you cruise will be going and stopping as scheduled.
Cheers to you and the Pharohs.

I hope you make it ashore for your tour John, you must really want to see the sights if you're actually getting off the ship.

Hopefully the rest of the trip will go according to plan.

PS If I recall didn't you have something planned in Oct, maybe Mexican Riveria?

Doug
