Sail Date: Oct 2011

So the cruise began a little odd when snow started to fall as we boarded the ship around noon on October 29th but that was the only odd thing about the entire cruise. The Captain wisely kept us in Port in Red Hook that night as there was a biiiig storm brewing and I, for one, was grateful since a remake of Titantic was not on my "things to do" list even though there was a seminar on the Titantic given by the author Bruce Caplan on one of the sea days. Anyway - it didnt matter that we stayed in port that night because if you didnt know it, you would swear you were sailing anyway. Luggage was delivered - wet but promptly. A very "wise" person told us to wrap a plastic garbage bag around our clothes and for some reason I listened, so my clothes were fine. There were lots of wet clothes on this ship that night believe me.

We travelled with two good friends but met up with so many new good friends from our CC Roll Call Boards. Having people you can hang out with and go places and eat with etc....was the perfect way to spend 10 days - 6 of which were sea days due to the fact that we missed San Juan. I was a little disappointed because we had dinner reservations at Barrachina's in OSJ and I was really looking forward to it. Guess we'll just have to book another cruise to PR in the future.

This was our 4th stay on the CB and we feel like we're home everytime we board this ship. Our favorite place was the Atrium/Piazza whatever you want to call it. It's a great people watching, coffee drinking, entertainment happening place, book reading, relaxing fun place and you just have to sit there any time of the day or night (since it's open 24/7 now (YAY) and you will see somebody you know or have seen somewhere around the ship.
