Default CruiseAholic is ROCKING in the Atlantic

Just got this from John.......he asked me to post it for him:


"We are in the last day, Golden Princess is heading to New York, we've hit a storm and we're rocking the Atlantic ! Winds about 50 knots, waves cresting up around deck 7, though the tv stats say 12 ft waves, but they are really spraying uip on the Promenade.. They have taped off virtually all doors and windows (no one is to go close to windows) and not allowed out on the open decks.

There are some broken windows and doors, one of the shops looks like a hurricane hit it, liquor down, etc. I'm having a most enjoyable time!"

Me here........wonder if he is having an enjoyable time because he is licking up all of the JackD from the floor.......can't waste any good booze! ;-)

And to think - this is the cruise that Jose and I were booked on but had to cancel! I sure envy CA the excitement!

Thanks for sharing Pat! When I talked to my brother at the Jersey shore last night he said they were getting ready for a noreaster! Sounds like an adventure for Cruiseaholic!

I just got another email from him.......he is fine....never gets sick......well he IS sick about all that good JackD going to waste! Even Sharon (his Boss/co-worker), who is bothered sometimes is doing well. That's good news.

Heard about the storm today on the Weather Channel, glad that CA and Sharon are doing o.k!

Will be interesting to read posts about the cruise next week, see different peoples view points! As you know, cruise lines have an inside track and are supposed to control the weather! (G) :-)

Their arrival in New York is being delayed until Monday. In his latest email, he said the storm is still raging. I'm sure he will have plenty of tales to tell. Yep Susie...he had me change his rental car reservation and place a couple of calls....including one to his lawyer (JOKING!)

We were rocking in the Atlantic last night.. aboard the NCL Majesty...had left Bermuda on Friday and really ran into the storm last night about 10:00...we arrived in Boston this morning pretty much on time about 6:30..a ride to remember.. no broken windows .. that I know of...but things had fallen off some of the shelves in the shops...we weren't put on any type of alert though......
It was a rather bumpy ride all night..am releived to be home.. but still feel the movement like one always does after a cruise...will wait to hear if anyone else was on that same ship...other than that.. that cruise was great...the fourth one!!
