Default Most Travelled Cruise Passenger....

Everybody,

It looks like we have a bit of "catching up" to do. According to a Princess Cruises press release, Lorraine Artz just passed 4,000 nights at sea.

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!

Norm.

Hi Norm,

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!

11 years. Cripes. So many questions. . .

How many times did they have to watch the same cheesy production show?

At what point does baked Alaska kill?

After the sixth year, did anybody ever beat them at trivia?

How many t-shirts did they buy in 11 years on ships?

And how many inches of gold?

Did they finally manage to call a truce with the ship's fotogs?

How many different versions of the vacuum toilet joke did they learn?

Did they have permanent soda cards?

. . .the mind boggles

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!

Default Mrs. Artz

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~~

last year
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~~
