Dwayne, I agree. There should be an easier way to let us down, don't you think? Actually, In the past few years I believe the debarkation process has gone much more "pain free" than in previous years. Especially with self-disembark.
*Fredo, Yes. Yes. Yes. We have IKEA. I travel 2 hours to get to the closest one. I'm addicted to IKEA, like I'm addicted to cruising. Only difference is IKEA is cheaper for my husband.
We have them in the States, including near me in New York and New Jersey. Swedish meatballs with Loganberry sauce. Mmmm...... It makes it worth the trip just to get those meatballs, doesn't it?
