Sail Date: Oct 2012
Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We arrived in Boston on Friday (Oct. 26) for our 14 day repositioning cruise on Sunday (Oct. 28) and stayed at the Embassy Suites Boston Logan hotel. Very clean hotel with a wonderful breakfast and evening snacks! (Highly recommend!) Spent Sat. touring Boston in the beautiful Sun.

Sun. morning we headed to the pier by taxi with the beginning of a very blustery day. We are Diamond members and were on board at 11:15 and headed to the buffet. As we were boarding, the cruise line announced that we would miss Barbados and St. Kitts because of hurricane Sandy. The ship would not sail until Tuesday instead of Sunday. Of course, we were disappointed, but we were glad to be safe with electricity and food. Our thoughts and prayers continued for the people who were in Sandy's path.

As the weather got worse outside, we made the most of all of the activities inside. During the height of the storm, a tug was used to keep us up against the pier. Our captain (Captain James) kept us informed of the weather at all times.

Beautiful cabin. Could not use balcony because of smoke from neighbors.
