I met Lorraine and her late husband, Joe, during a cruise to "Scandanavia and Western Europe" aboard the original MV Royal Princess in 2001. As much as I admire Lorraine's record of cruising, I'm much more favorably impressed by the warmth with which members of Princess's crews speak of them. In thirteen cruises on Princess, I met many crew members who spoke enthusiastically of having Joe and Lorraine aboard and never one who said anything the slightest bit negative about their interactions with either Joe or Lorraine. When my cruising days are done, I hope to leave behind a similar legacy.
And Lorraine, congratulations on yet another milestone!
Isn't this wonderful! I hope that some of us on CM's will also achieve this status !
Hope to see you onboard with your wheelchair or walker (in a few years !)
(I can't wait 'till retirement .)
We'll never be able to catch up with Lorraine!
Lorraine, my congratulations, too ! We hope to meet you someday!

WOW, and I thought WE were cruiseaholics having done something like 57 now since 1984. Not even close. Actually second time I have seen something like this. The other was the lady that sailed Cunard most of the year. may she have many, many, more!
We met Mrs. Artz on the Diamond several years ago~ she was returning to her Beverly Hills home to " re- group" and needed a quick get away to Mexcio, we had drinks and chatted awhile~~
she and I met again in the infirmary of the Sea Princees on the East bound crossing , small world we got up to date about the waiters etc.
I'm sure she is moving over to the Royal~~
