Default For those considering the CM New Years Party of the Century

http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/...ryMakeover.cfm

The link above is to the article I wrote when I was in Miami for the announcement of the ship's reconstruction, and my cruise on her immediately afterwards. It gives some insight to the changes they are making to the ship.

The picture below is of Deitmar Wertanzel, VP of fleet operations, after learning that Mike and I would be occupying aft cabins in the new section, explaining to the engineers that they are going to have to reinforce the hull in that area, and add balast.

Thanks Kuki. Forwarded the article to Mark, as he was very interested to hear that the ship would be redone.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Kuki,

As long as we don't regress and go back to our previous weights they will be OK with current engineering specifications. <VBG>

If we do slip then the folks in the forward sections will be walking uphill. <VBG>

Take care,
Mike

Great news, Trip!!!!!!

Kuki, do you think that the deck four levels down from you may have the other SV's on them? I'm just looking at the yellow thing across the back on those plans.

I'm beginning to think the moose WORKS for the cruise lines........
But then, I'm not much for conspiracy theories.

Good for you Triplet. It will be great to see you and Bruce. It will be a great time. I will now begin my workout regimen for carrying the shoe trunk. <VBG>

Take care,
Mike

Kuki, I hope that Nancy Bogart is right, that at some point, somebody who knows Miami will find everyone a nifty hotel so we can all be together for dinner or a cocktail party, or both

Judy.. NO DOUBT there will be a pre cruise get together in Miami, for dinner and cocktails.

As for hotels.... as it gets closer I'll be trying Priceline. Once I get a hotel and bid accepted I'll certainly post the details so that everyone who wants to can bid as well.
