Default I'm Home!

Hi gang, I'm home from the Sapphire Princess, and suffering the worst case of PCD!
Basically it was a fabulous cruise, and we lucked out with perfect weather, but we've decided we will not do the Mexican Riviera again, it it just not as nice as the Caribbean, and the 5 1/2 hour flight to and from L.A. was just too much for us!
I'll get started on my review as soon as I get a chance, but first - laundry!

Glad you made it home safe and sound Donna. My daughter was right on time picking me up at terminal.

It was fun being on Sapphire Princess with you, James, your sister Heather and cousin Penny.

I'm glad you enjoyed the Captain's Luncheon with me on Friday having that yummy meal.

Looking forward to your review of this cruise.

Welcome home, Donna. Stick to the Caribbean and maybe one of these days we'll sail together again. I've got the Connie booked for March 27, 2009 for 10 days - how about you and James coming along!!!

Welcome home RD,
Good to hear you had good weather and a great cruise, sorry about the PCD, not a whole lot helps that, but booking something else. Will be interested in hearing about Saphire Princess...

Welcome Home RD. I loved the Diamond Princess, so had no doubt you'd love the Sapphire Princess.

But I discovered awhile back, after a couple of cruises in the area, that I'm not a Mexican Riviera fan. It's just too much Mexico for me. I love Cabo san Lucas, and enjoyed Puerto Vallarta...... but the rest of that itin. just seems extremely repepetive to me.

I think next you and James need to consider Europe or the Baltic. I'm betting it would be perfect for you two, enthralling you.
