Default How Many Days Til Our Next Cruise??

Hi
Now that 2007 is officially over-we now have the Ruby Princess to look forward to on November 15, 2008!
Now, as bad as I am with the Countdown Clock-how many days do we have left from today-January 1.?? It's going to be a long year.

We are still savoring our recent Emerald Princess cruise Dec. 6-16.

Here's hoping the months go quickly!!! Working Tues-Saturday now (new hours), the weeks should fly by. I'm off on Tuesdays!

Who else has to wait until the Fall to cruise?

Take care. Lynne

Ha, I can't cruise again until the fall of 2009. I can't even research cruises yet because they are not available that far in advance. I am miserable

While it's going to make this thread look really odd you can now look at the bottom of your posts for your countdown

Thanks for the link to your great photos, Sue. We did the MED in June /06 Venice to Barcelona, so I recognize many of your shots. In June of this year we , too are doing Venice and the Greek Isles...starting in Rome and ending in Venice on the Emerald Princess.

The Arcadia looks like a lovely ship.....I loved the art work aboard.....and your daring wake shot. Looking at the ship from a distance, it was scary to think just how you got it!!! WOMAN OVERBOARD!

Thanks for sharing.......and enjoy your cruise! I know WE will.....we love the MED.

In 141 days we leave for Athens. After three days in Athens, we have 14 days on the Seven Seas Voyager with no sea days. The highlight will be three full days in Venice. We will then have three days on the French Riviera before heading home.

Don't have a single cruise booked at this point.

We're spending February in Palm Springs as usual, then in May we're going to visit friends in Bulgaria and more friends in the south of France. In the fall we've determined to finally do Egypt, Jordan and surroundings, which will probably include two short (three nights each) cruises on small ships, one on the Nile and one on the lake.

We're looking forward to all of those, but this may be the first year in a while with no traditional cruises.

Lynn, I was interested in sailing that maiden voyage on the Ruby Princess 11-15-08, but I'm a bit worried about fall sailing. I heard it is often stormy and rough. I usually sail in January (to escape the nasty Boston weather in January). Any thoughts?

I have a cruise booked next Oct. too, but it's so far away I can't even think about it yet.... Meanwhile, my countdown says I have one just 21 days away!! Not to mention the one I won recently, and I haven't even picked when and where I will be going. For once I am going to be "stacked"!!

Hi
Thanks for the countdown clock! There is an angel in our midst.
I unoffically found my newest number, via subtraction on paper a few minutes ago so I'll see if I come close!

As for cruising in the Fall-it's not always rough. We've been cruising between Sept. and December since 2001 and have only had some brief encounters with rough seas. Our most recent cruise was Dec. 6-16 and we had a couple of days of rough seas (not dangerous)but then it was calm again by the time we got to Aruba. The seas were then calm by the Islands-and I think we had another moderately rough night sailing from St. Thomas to the Bahamas.
It's really hard to predict. A couple of our Sept. cruises were very smooth. In 2004, we ran into Hurricane Jeanne on the way back East=one rough day before turning around for 2 days and then the seas were calm again. Last November 2006-there were some big swells but then calm. And, on our very first cruise in February 1998, it was rough enough in the Bahamas that we cruised straight to Jamaica.

We cruise during the Fall because of the prices--they are more affordable. If there is a storm brewing-the ship will go the opposite itinerary, ie, Hurricane Wilma in 2005-we were the last ship allowed to leave the port and went Eastern Caribbean instead of Western-once we went the other way. You just have to be flexible.
So, I guess the bottom line is that there is no way to truly predict. It depends on the oceanic conditions, winds, etc. If you are suspectable(?) to rough waters-be sure to wear a patch or a band. I hear they work pretty well.
I hope I answered your question.

Have a good week, Everyone! Lynne

My calculation has us down to about 315 days until we cruise. 334 days seems a little high.
Just wondering! Lynne

Oops.. sorry Lynne.. I put in the wrong month - 12 instead of 11.

Think I've got it correct now.

Way too ambitious.

Burn 3000 calories less than you take in, in a week...that'll be a pound.

Walk, bike or whatever for 30 minutes a day or for ten minutes 3 times a day.

Trust me, it works. Do not expect more.

I am 7 pounds towards my goal.


Or start a speed habit!
