    Hi, everyone:

    We will be on the Nov 6 Veendam, as well.

    We are Richard and Jennie, formerly of CT, now Florida

    Looking forward to this cruise and thrilled that we don't have to fly!

    See you all soon.

    Jennie

    We too are on the 14 day version.

     

    We are staying at that Holiday Inn too. Stayed there last time we cruised from Ft Lauderdale, it's pretty convenient. We have some family down there, so we're meeting up with them on the 5th.

     

    I'm doing the same thing with my clothes. We went from 90s one day to 40s the next. Love that St Louis weather!

     

    I grew up in Southern Illinois about 70 miles from St. Louis so am very familiar with the weather! I'm not crazy about Minnesota winters, but after living here for 40 years, I'm pretty sure I couldn't tolerate the humidity down your way anymore.

     

    We will most likely take Uber (or Lyft) to the port from the hotel. Have done that in the past and it is quicker and cheaper than doing a hotel shuttle (don't really remember if the HI has a shuttle or not.) 

     

    We have very little planned for the ports on this cruise except DH will dive at a couple of the stops. Key West will be the only new port for us and the others we have been to multiple times. Fingers are crossed that we don't have to deal with any hurricanes or tropical storms. The last time we went to the Caribbean we had both affect us! As long as we can stop at Half Moon Cay I will be happy.

    The roll call has been pretty dead, so I don't think anyone has arranged a meet and greet, plus I don't think there's enough people.

    For us, our cruise travels will begin 3 weeks from today! Just printed our luggage tags & boarding passes and now need to put together my "cruise folder" with all of my other paper work. 

     

    Since warm weather clothing is no longer needed here in Minnesota, ☹️ I have been clearing stuff out of my closet and putting it into my packing pile for the cruise. Our last cruise was in South America and Antarctica where temps ranged from near 100 degrees to below freezing so packing for this trip should be easy in comparison!

     

    We are flying in a day early and will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express on 17th Street. Anyone else who will be there?

     

    Also wondering if anyone is going to be doing a B2B with the November 13th cruise as we are?

     

    Not sure if I missed it, but don't remember reading anything about a meet & greet planned for this cruise. Our recent cruises have been longer in length which seem to lend themselves more to that sort of thing I guess.
