Default Having a great time on the Jade

We survived the hurricane force winds in Bacelona and boarded the Jade on the 25th. We have been having a fantastic time. Our guide in Rome was one of the best we've ever had and the people on the ship are a notch above what we encounterd on the Jewel. (And the Jewel wasn't bad)

I'll try to post some pictures but we've been doing so much and having such a fun time that there hasn't been too much time.

The only negative, and small one at that, is that the Cat AC, front view cabin, is not the greatest. You really can't use the balcony on any sea days or when the ship is in motion but we've enjoyed the extras.

I hope everyone is well and I'll check in later.

Take care,
Mike (Who is REALLY having fun)

I don't know if you're missing a big snowstorm in Minnesota, but you're sure missing a good one here!
Enjoy the rest of your cruise, and we'll be waiting to hear all about it when you get back.

How did you like Greece, Turkey and Egypt? Did you go to the pyramids in Egypt? How was it? I'm looking at Jade for 10/21. Thanks for the feedback.
