Just checking in. Been around on other boards since late 2000/early 2001 and cruising since 1985. Got an email from John Duncan today so I thought I would follow through. John, if you are on-board, "Hi".

Bibb..." Nice to see you. I see that I have 5 posts more than you. First time to ever have that. Laughing"

cute Laughing ...
Jeff, nice to see you also. I wondered what had happened to you after you slipped out of sight.
Hope that you are doing well.

Well, about post counts.... as long as they do not have the "first mate" syndrome here.. I will be happy.
I never thought much about posting for "rank"
( rendeer just looked through all the emoticons for one that really says "stupid" this is as close as it gets :lol )

I see I am not the only new person here. so how long has this board been up?

cheers, red

Hi Keith n Rita. Nice to see you. What's happening??

Red - It looks like the board has been around since August. It looks like many, if not most posters are being cautious. A lot of viewers but not too many replies.

I think a roll call might introduce people a little.

Flotsam - Welcome aboard. As you can see, most of us on this thread have only a few posts. K&R are the ones who have been the busiest. Laughing I am on several boards and surf among them each evening. Karen and I do about as many land cruises as we do ocean types. Other than cruises, Europe was our favorite vacation until the dollar crumbled. Now, it's Hawaii but we are looking into South America.

Not much happening in the cruise area, however we are heading to Siesta Key (Sarasota) on Friday for a couple weeks of sun and fun and then a stop in Nashville at the Opryland Resort for a big band dance for Memorial weekend.

KnR - We're slow in the cruise area also right now. Going to Santa Fe next week for a week, then South Dakota in June and Hawaii in October (burning up SkyMiles before some merge or something eats them up). Smile Being retired military, we get to stay at the Hale Koa Hotel on Waikiki.

We've done 18 cruises and are looking to do a little something different than the Caribbean. Maybe South America. The dollar is still good down there. Later,

Rita, yes i am still driving my Corvette! Love it! It's a little faster now though. Smile

Nina, I have been on Princess twice, Carnival twice and Celebrity once.
My preferred line is Princess but they don't sail out of our port right now and I hate flying anymore. Carnival is not our line of choice but as long as the ship is really big, we will find SOMETHING to do on it. Celebrity..........well, it's the only time we were hungry. If you miss the dinner meal (because of excursions or whatever) you need to hope something is open. We tried one of the restaurants but you have to have reservations. The grills had closed so we had to sit in our cabin and eat room service food which too long. It was on the Millennium and our last time to ever go on that ship. Not much good came out of that cruise.

Think I will stick with Princess and give Royal Caribbean a try and maybe Holland America. Carnival makes a good "fill in' because it is close by, but only on a ship large enough to have a better variety. One cruise was as a group leader with my travel agent friends. Of course, then they bend over backwards to make you think they are the best in the world....so we took a second one with our Military Moms group and well..............they didn't come close to the service when they have a shipload of TA's on board.
