Default We have returned

We just returned from our SHORT 7 dayer on the Mariner of the Seas.

We head out to Coco Cay and had a lovely re laxing on the Island.

Next day we headed out to the EASTERN Carib. Not To long the Captain said, "Hey we don't think we can dock in St Thomas or St Marteen. A Huricane had closed the ports. So what shall we do. I am gonna keep you all safe so we will be turning around and headed to the WESTERN carib". So we did. Went on the Grand Cayman then on the Cuzmel.

The ship is wonderful but long. Having to cart Helen up and down the length a few times each became a chalenge. But we did and had a wonderful time.

We had some kin folks with us including our Daughter, Her husband, our Sister-in-law, our Grandson, Our neice and a bunch of our daughter's yatch club members. We had a great time.

I did not hear any complaints of the Itin change. We all remembered if you book a cruise during Hurricane Season you must be able to understand that the Captain will ALWAYS keep us and his equipment safe.

We enjoyed the ship and all that went on. Just remember what happens on the ship stays on the ship.

Welcome back Ray!
While you were avoiding the storms in the Caribbean, we had beautiful weather in the Mexican Riviera, following Hurricane Norbert who hit before we got there.
Glad you had a great time with family, nice to see you back!

Allow me to add my welcome home as well, Ray.

Am so glad to hear that you and Helen had such a marvelous time.

Once when someone was talking about possible itnerary changes, I remarked that I didn't care whether the darn thing just sailed in and out of Upper New York Bay for nine days.
