Thanks for the welcome Alan and Katrina and Trip.

Rather late getting into cruising and now have cruises 'stacked up' :-)

Started on a 'One Off Special' on Thomson's Emerald. Booked the next cruise with 23 hours of getting home for the following year and same again for the third year.

Last year did The World on Aurora and another couple of 2 week ones 'back to back' which made 4 months cruising on Aurora in 2006

Arcadia in the Caribbean in March and sailed her back to Southampton.

Queen Victoria over Christmas and the New Year with ALL our family.

Greenland, Iceland and Norway in June on Aurora.

Then as a 'New Boy' to Princess next Christmas 08 and New Year 09 with some 'add ons' in Auckland and Sydney before and after the cruise on Diamond Princess, Auckland to Sydney.

Nothing booked after that so PCD will set in

Thanks again for the welcome

Hi Mike,
I think you will love Princess. We just sailed on the Emerald, and it was great. I have sailed on Princess 7 times and they just keep getting better. So welcome aboard.
