Default Booked my 1st Single Cruise!

Hey all,

I *know* we are leaving March 11th for a 2-nighter on the Diamond Princess, but the rates were just *too* good for one of the last 4-night sailings of the Carnival Ecstasy on the West Coast

Got an Inside Guarantee for $197 total (bunk bed room, but she said I have more than a 50-50 chance of being upgraded). That was for a single-total!!!

Going sans Art this time -- something new for me. But he is gonna watch the real estate business while I lounge, eat, watch TV and see the shows.

Harry

I've always been upgraded on Carnival to a regular inside cabin -- hope the same strikes, but with one person, no biggie

it feels that way ... but I just had to!

I also wanted to see how it was traveling alone ... that will be something different.

Harry - have a great time on this cruise! As someone who travels single occasionally, we can compare notes when you get back.

my daughter went of the ecstasy over christmas and went alone and had a great time.
Any time I can cruise and not fly I would love it. Right now I am trying to airfare to Seattle for June and I would like to pay only $215 or less and am not having any luck. I will have to book soon and am trying to decide where to stay after cruise. I don't want to rent a car for the day. Oh well like I said if I could cruise out of LA all the time I would be a happy camper that is why I am looking forward to the two day Diamond cruise.

Wow, Harry, you sure are booking a lot of last-minutes lately! Good for you!

A bunch of our friends are going on a cruise in two weeks... I don't have the vacation time but Mark suggested he might try to go with them without me... I said, OVER MY DEAD BODY!!!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

I had a little stress last night thinking of things I needed to take care of or prepare work-wise before I go, but then I realized I would only be unavailable phone-wise for 1 day, so I realized it was do-able with Art's help.

Way to go Harry…leave the stress behind. Art can handle it, I’m sure. You know stressed backward is desserts.
Michelle, check in hourly to assure us your still alive.

Dorothy, you're right -- I should ... Art asked for a bottle of Amaretto from the ship, so that is on the shopping list.

Luckily, all the clothes are ready -- just gotta pack tonight. Broke the news to one client and he was OK ... have one more to go (but I am just telling them I am outta town)

You are worse than me Harry. You're going to know Ensenada better than the locals.
Cheers!

Know what you mean Chuck ... I just saw it's gonna be raining in Ensenada, so I may just cruise about downtown or just at the port terminal.

Did you see we booked the pre-inaugural on the Diamond Princess ... got an inside for $99 per person for 2 nights. I just had to try it out, and my lender and her husband are going with us.
