Default Who has the shortest Cruise clock

I couldn't afford a cruise right now. I'm really enjoying the vitual Freedom of the sea cruise and all the pictures in the photo gallery. So make me jealous who has the shortest cruise clock, is your cruise 1 day away and where are you going?

I'm sure someone is sailing this weekend, but ours is 11 days I think. (The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I are ready).

Hi Skymaster,
Where is your cruise ahead, how much days and what cruise line. If you don't mind me asking? I need to details to picture myself there. Beach or icebergs

I'm out of here on Saturday. Even though I was diagnosed with a mild case of walking Pneumonia yesterday. Taking rest of week off from work. I don't really feel bad, no headaches, sniffles, etc, just a cough from the lung infection. But Dr. said that if I take the rest of the week off, stay on the meds, and no strenous acitivity, then she won't tell me not to cruise.

I am sailing with friends from work and TBone. All of us except TBone are meeting at my house Saturday morning for patries and mimosas and bloody marys before we go....What a way to start a vacation!

We are leaving Friday on the Grandeur. That is...if the ship is repaired & the weather doesn't get too rough, due to Gordon & the one following him!

Looking forward to smooth sailing to the West Caribbean. Lots of fun, sun & Bahama Mama's!!

Keeping my fingers, toes & eyes crossed that it all goes as planned.

I wish it was me with the shortest clock but mine is not too far off. We are sailing out of San Juan and going to St. Thomas,Dominca,Barbados and Aruba. I am sooooooo looking forward to it. My wife and I have been booked since January and have been counting the days(literally,she marked off a countdown on the calender from January till the day we leave).

Jodi, please take care of yourself, even after you board. And next time I sail, I'm coming to your house for the sail-away party! 8) Have a great trip and smooth seas. (I trust you finally got your docs?)

You are more than welcome to my house for sail away parties! Yes, I did finally get docs. A week ago last Monday. My TA was on vacation and not in office to mail them to me.

I have been staying on the meds and they are working wonders. I feel so much better after just one round (they are once a day dosage).

Jodi

Hi KatLady;
The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I are sailing on the beautiful "Mariner of the Seas" out of Port Canaveral, for the Western Caribbean. I don't know what ports exactly, I think probably Cozumel, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and somewhere else. We'll tip a cool one for you, and before long you can return the favor.

See you aboard,

Ken

I'm jealous of all you I want you all to drink an apple/chocolate martini for me. heck have more than one. Jodi hope you are feeling better before Saturday and my DH wanted me to make certain you don't have the walking pneumonia and boogie woogie flu. he is the master of bad jokes.

Skymaster I have never been on Western Caribbean cruise sounds fun. Because I live in California I end up in Mexico or Alaska but I would love to go on a Western Caribbean cruise. Have fun and party for all us landlocked people who wish we were there. Once I save money for a Hawaii cruise I will have a Mai Tai with my DH on the balcony. For now I can only dream.8)

Not the shortest, but 15 days; we are driving to Brooklyn for the Crown Princess, 9 days. Hope the hurricanes stay away.

I just want to tell all of you that are cruising before I am that I really dislike all of you for it and the font color shows my true feelings.

Seriously: I hope all of you have the best cruises that you could possibly have!!!

Take care,
Mike
