Ok I just wanted everyone to know that I finally got my copy -- and yes the first thing I did was read Pamda's artical-- It look to be a very good issue-- for me anyway-- I live near San Francisco and have been on the Carnival Spirit-- both are featured in this issue-- Plus I have meet Pamda in person and hope to do so again real soon.
Thanks everyone for for letting me know good things come to those who wait-- and yes I waited.
Just got mine yesterday.. ... (Friday). Gonna read it, later, out by the pool. It's sort of a rutual. Whenever my Cruise Travel, or Porthole or Caribbean Travel & Life, I save them for Saturday. After my chores, I mix up a (non-alchohlic) frozen thingee, put some reggae, or soca, on the stereo, and relax while I read the magazine.
Surrounded by palm trees, and tropical plants, I feel like I'm in the islands.
