IN FLORIDA!!
 
Good evening Cruisemates. I MADE IT! I'm in the Marriott staring out at the pier..though it's empty.

Our flights were long, and uneventful. Noticed some heightened security. With our change of plane in Houston, we had to produce picture ID with boarding passes.

Had some minor glitches because we had e tickets, and with all the changes, at least Continental is requiring they be changed to paper. They issued us return paper tickets.
At 5 PM today Miami airport was VERY quiet! Grabbed an Avis shuttle, got a rental, and drove to the hotel.

No question I feel different than my normal pre cruise mode. Mental health outlook is starting to look up though!!!
Regards,
Kuki

Kki - glad to hear you made it safely. I flew last Friday and this Monday and I had no troubles. I did have to present a photo id along with the boarding pass at the security gates at the entrances to the concourses - that was new - and my purse was hand searched due to a pair of small nail clippers that I totally forgot I had in there. It is weird to see the airports so quiet......but I cannot complain about being squished in my seat like a sardine!

All right Kuki. Great feeling is it not. We got a call from the airlines for our Sept 29th flight. They are on schedule and wanted to make sure we are still going. YES we are.
Gave us a quick run down on what to expect at the airport and glad we are not canceling. I mentioned to her that not to fly for our cruise is allowing the bums to win. Her response "Good for you, great spirit".

Kuki,
I'll be partying with you tomorrow night, having my first frozen thingee at 5:30 p.m., MST, while you guys are gathering at Lombardi's. Please know that my prayers are with all travelers during these trying times. Have a good time for all of us, and please share so that we can feel that we're there with you!

Hi All, Just a note to say we are leaving on our much anticipated cruise on the Explorer tomorrow. Flying from SFO to Miami to board the fabulous EOS.
Hope to meet some of you on board. SMILES, PRAYERS AND CRUISES, always.

Kuki,

Glad to hear you had an uneventful flight and arrived safely. Hopefully ours will be the same. Hopefully ours will be the same. Somewhat glad to hear the airports are not to busy, for shorter lines and such. We will see you in a couple of days.

Pamda and Jennifer...

Midnight Margaritas...it's a moral imperative for our get-togethers.

Kuki, what was flying like? I'm taking my son to Florida for Halloween. A tiny bit chicken about it, but I will do it...unless things get too freaky. How did you feel about flying overall?

Have an amazing week at sea!
