Sail Date: Oct 2006

We are from MA so we took Amtrak to New York. When we left it was raining and a little windy. So we were surprised when we arrived in NY to see the sun, but it didn't last long! As soon as we got out of the limo the sky opened up and it got worse from there.

While waiting in line for our embarkation photo we turned around and there was Brian and Sue from the cruise critic's roll call board...nice surprise. They are both lovely and fun loving people from Texas. We had the pleasure of their company several times for drinks and dinner. We had also met a couple on the cruise roll call board who happen to live just a 30 minute drive from us! They are Pandora and Dennis who is a lovely couple that also dined with us on several occasions. We all met at the Wheelhouse bar on Sunday at 1:30 for a meet and greet. It was so nice to meet everyone and put faces to the people we have been chatting with on the boards. It certainly made our cruise even more fun than we expected having such nice people to share it with.

We didn't depart from NY until sometime after 7PM and it was very very windy and hard to stay on deck. We also heard that they were announcing on the news that the conditions we were heading into were being called "The Perfect Storm". Great I said to myself...I saw that movie! It was certainly a lot of rocking and rolling for three days! When you saw the barf bags laid out all over the ship you knew it wasn't going to be pretty! LOL Hubby and I did fine although we did get a tad queasy by the second night. Ginger ale or two later and we were fine.
