Default Greetings from Portofino!

Hello Everyone!

Greetings from the Royal Princess! :-)

I absolutely love this ship, so nice being on a smaller ship, no lines, effortless tendering, easy to find tables in the buffet, dining room layout
is super, not a bad table anywhere. I'm sitting with 4 Canadians and 3 Brits and we have a great time every night.

The food, service are great, I've read about some start up problems but
not in my book, everything is super. Entertainment is good and I was glad to see Alan and Elana (sp) are onboard, they are a super duo and remembered me from my 2005 B2B on the Sea Princess. In fact, there are others from the Sea on this ship, too.

I've always known I'm a small ship person but this totally confirms it, I love this ship!

Time to go! Just wanted to say hi and let you know all is well! More later if I don't lose the connection!

It's great to hear from you. I missed your Bon Voyage send off so here's a big BON VOYAGE for you.

I'm so glad to hear that you are loving the ship and having a great time. I wouldn't mind being the only other American at your table each night. Sounds like fun.

Susie: It was great hearing from you. I know you always said you are a small-ship gal. I'm so glad you are having a wonderful time.

Yes, I've raised several toast to my CM friends, more than one foo foo drinks, in fact! :-)

Yep, I am convinced small ship is the way to go for me so much fun seeing the same people several times during a day rather than once during a week!!!

Yesterday I did a mega tour, which was well worth it! Positano, the Amalfi Coast drive, lunch at a 5 star hotel, high on cliff above the sea and then Pompeii! Long day but absolutely spectacular and only 12 of us in a nice mini bus so no waiting for anyone! Nice to see Pompii in a small group later in the day so not as many groups/crowds.

Today we have a much needed sea day then tomorrow we are in Malta.
Well, now all I have to do is decide what I want for lunch and which foo foo drink to order! Such a life!

Cheers!
