Default Now we're a playa'!!

To all our CM friends.
We finally made it !! Now we here in the TW area have a closeby (across from my office) chance to hop a HAL cruise. Saving 4-600.00 for airfare to Fla. equates to ...more cruisin' ;-)
NORFOLK -- A major cruise line will make Nauticus International Pier its homeport starting in 2004.
Norfolk Mayor Paul D. Fraim announced today that Holland America Line will depart and return to Norfolk from January through April and again from October through December.
Altogether, Holland America has agreed to 16 call commitments from Norfolk to the Ca ribbean in 2004. The ship will be the MS Maasdam.
Ya'll come see us for your next HAL trip..

That is great news!! We live in Richmond, Va so having a major cruise line in Norfolk would be nice (1 1/2hr. drive). Just wish it was RCCL but I would not hesitate to try Holland America.

We were happy to see the announcement in the paper today. I hope with this the city will approve the funding for the new cruise ship terminal. That really would be great!!
