Hi Gang, we have do one before on the Golden Princess. Ft. Lauderdale to Barcelona
in May, 2002. What a wonderful trip. We love those sea days. Now we are looking forward to the new "Liberty" and so many wonderful fellow Cruisemates are signing
up to go. We will be going on a cruise June, 2005 (Constellation) to the Baltics, so
we will see Europe twice in 2005. We are so lucky!! John & Priscilla
So far, we've done two: FL to Barcelona on the Grand Princess in 2000, London to NYC on the QE2 in April,2004. Both Keith and I love a lot of at-sea days, but serene ones, not like on the QE2 where we experienced gale force winds.
We have one TA under under our belt so far and that was on the Legend when it hit so many ports in and around the UK and enroute. We are also looking to sail on the Liberty but not the TA, rather the Med cruise as that is the one that goes to all the interesting and historic ports.
We have cruised from London to Boston on Vision in 1998 and from Florida to Barcelona in 2000.
We now have two more booked. The first is from Copenhagen to New York City for 16 days on August 27th. and the second is the Cruisemates cruise from Rome to Ft Lauderdale in Oct 2005. Both are 16 days.
Trans-Atlantic cruises used for repositioning are generally more reasonably priced for the number of days than regular seven day cruise, and the mixture of sea days and portsis a lot of fun.
I realize it might be better to get a life, but long cruises are really fun!
When I first came to CM..I had never cruised..never owned a digital camera..never posted a picture...never had a froo froo drink..and never used a Transderm patch or even knew what one was...As much as I would love to branch out a little more on a TA cruise...I will catch the next one..because you see there is still one thing I Have not done..FLY !!! on a commercial plane....you people are a baaaad influence on me.(sitting here drinking a non-alcoholic froo froo)looking at this new digital camera and still wondering what the heck I am doing and watching that pop-up ad for Transderm patches...I LOVE this place..I would love to go on this one.>VBG<
Rofl..I posted this on the wrong thread...soooorry.lol
We sailed on the brand new Carnival Legend from London (Harwich) to New York in September 2002, and loved every minute. It was the north Atlantic route with ports of call in the UK, Iceland and Newfoundland. Interesting ports and calm seas.
We're seriously looking at the Carnival Liberty crossing in October 2005. Maybe we can join the CruiseMates group cruise!
