Boy oh boy, talk about timing. Wish I had known of this one two weeks ago before I booked a crossing in OCT 09. Oh well, guess that's life. Sure prefer a cruisemates cruise and this one has new (to me anyway) ports. I guess I'll have to wait until this one comes around again in a few years.
Kuki, good to see a new CruiseMates cruise. We will need to think about this one a little bit. Carole asked about the Atlantic in October? She thinks it might be rough, I know guessing the weather anytime is difficult but what is normal for that time of year. Please comment if you have some idea what we can expect. Thanks, Mike PS This retirement business is wild, I have never been so busy.

Mike wev'e done a crossing before in the fall, and we had great water and great temps all the way across. One reason I liked this one is it's very early Oct. so the weather will be excellent in Europe, and less tourists than summer... plus better weather across.
Are there still openings and good rates on this cruise?
