Default eating crow

Well, I said I would never sail N.C.L. again. I lied. I just got an e-mail from my travel agent offering a 5 night west coastal on the Norwegian Sky on 0-27-03 for $199 p.p.
I couldn't resist. I booked it despite my NCL reservations. (Pardon the pun!)

Anyway, this cruise starts in Vancouver, Canada and goes to Victoria, Seattle, and ends in San Francisco with an all night layover there in SFO. I think that is a deal considering one night at a hotel in SFO would be more that $199 in many cases.

I booked this cruise and yes I look terrible with black feathers spewing from my lips.

Just take the feathers out of your mouth and have David make you a neat headdress with with. Perfect for formal night.

Hmmm. Maybe by then I will be ready for a haircut By David.

It's one sweet deal. Lucky you.

Great deal-- but then again I wouldnt pay that much for a hotel in SF-- lol-- they have been advertising great deals on those too-- but then again I live in San Jose-- Its the air to Vancouver that would cost me--- one way killer---
At least your weather in SF in Sept should be wonderful--- and warm too
Try Priceline and stay a few more days ???
Cheers
April

This coupon is good for one free Pamda haircut, onboard the Norwegian Sky. Feather boas (nade from crow) are extra, of course.

Yo Pamda

I can't tell by the sound of your hmmm if you are considering this cruise. You should
think about it. At any rate I am serious about a free haircut. Doesn't everyone fly to the west coast to get their hair cut while sailing under the golden gate bridge?

Fly to Seattle. Rent a car for about $70 and drive for 90 minutes or so. Avis has a shuttle to the pier. It's easy and fun too! Much cheaper than international one-way flight.

Chuck, we did a similar cruise on the Sky two years ago (left from Ensenada, overnight in SF, stop in Victoria and ended in Seattle). We had a wonderful time, and the ship was gorgeous.

NCL beds are the only hard ones I've encountered but the cabin steward has foam pads to help out.

Victoria is gorgeous! One of our fave places ever.

Hey, who cares about having to eat crow? It's a CRUISE, right? Don't worry about eating your words and instead look forward to enjoying a great vacation! At least you know to keep your expectations fairly low. Have a great time!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Hey Chuck,

Congratulations on your forthcoming cruise!

But aren't you a bit ahead of yourself? I mean, we haven't seen seen the photos from your last one. I enjoyed your review by the way; sorry it took so long to mention that!

By the way, what's up with this weather lately?! It's positively tropical! Might have to book another cruise myself..................!

Dean

It is weird weather. I have never seen such a mild winter in the Portland basin. It is in the low 60's and I have tulips blooming and that doesn't usually happen until April. I read an article last week that said that by the year 2100 there would be no more glaciers on earth at the rate they are thawing. Glacier Bay will look like Yosemite Valley, no doubt. I can't bear to think of the possible changes that are most likely coming.

This thought is causing too much stress. I guess it is time for another cruise.

$199 U.S. at Crucon Cruise Outlet translates into less than $300 Canadian I believe.
