weejack, how would Wheels know what you looked into before you went on your cruise if you didn't mention it in your opening message? I also thought you were a he because of your user name. I thought the compliment wheels gave Penny was well deserved; however, I don't think Wheels deserved the comment that we have people like Penny and not Wheels.
I've been on almost every Royal Caribbean ship more that once and never felt that I was ripped off. I've never been on any of the Europe itineraries--perhaps that's why.
