Dear Jodi,
My husband and I were on that itinerary on the Golden in Oct.2001.I thoroughly enjoyed it.We will be on the same route for the Sept.18 sailing aboard the Caribbean Princess. I'm excited about seeing the difference in ships.One of the things I enjoyed most was being up early in the AM to see the ship pull into St.Thomas. The city lights were still on.The Disney Magic beat us there and its passengers greeted us as we arrived-waving,etc. The other thing is, that St.Thomas is an American port, so it was really great to see KFC signs, the Golden Arches,and AT+T Billboard! Another nice site, before getting to St. Thomas, is looking back at the lights of St. Maarten.They twinkle at dusk as they're coming on,and it's so peaceful as we're leaving shore. I'm sure you're going to have a nice time. Lynne

Lynne,

What a nice message. Thank you for taking the time to respond to my post and for the sailing tips. It's too bad that we are not going sailing with you. I am so excited. I am wishing it was already November. Since you will be sailing before us, I would love to hear back from you on how your cruise went.

Thanks again,
Jodi

I sailed the Sun Princess in Feb. She is 77K tons its a more mature demographics on the 10 day. More relaxing and quiet than a younger cruise. Embarking was real smooth.
Any more questions that I can answer?

My first cruise was the Sun Princess in 1998. I suppose she was fairly new then. I thought 77 tons was a big ship but have now worked my way up to 116,000 on the Caribbean Princess in Sept. I'm not one for small "boats". One gentleman has now written that he had a terrible time on his recent Sun cruise. I hope this isn't a sign of her decline. I had a great time.The entertainment was wonderful.I even bought the tape of one of the entertainers, Barrington Brown, who did showtunes around the white Grand Piano, and old-time favorites,and requests.I don't know what ship he's on though,now.Everything was clean, the food was decent,the voyage relaxing, the casino good---great for a first time cruiser! Lynne

Jodi-another neat thing is being up early and seeing the entry back into Port Everglades.I've done this on the last 3 cruises. It's very quiet. You see the pilate boats come out,you see the lights of the 17th Street Causeway Bridge which you thing are dead ahead. However, the ship swings and then heads in straight. Once you come into port by the white apt's the ship turns left,and then backs into its "parking space".It's fascinating.You see the city awakening.The "noise" comes back-helicopters,power plant,vehicles, etc. Also, if you're out on the balcony,if you have one, coming up the coast, you'll start seeing white birds flying with the ship.About that time I try to catch 2-3 hours sleep so I can be awake for the "Grand Entrance" into Port Everglades! Lynne
