LHP that is good advice. Thanks. I really am looking forward to the International feel of the cruise. I have no problem with that, but probably will with bad manners and that goes for any culture. I get along with everyone and should have no problems but have been known not to cower in a corner either and let people run over me. My Spanish is enough to get by and will probably be a whole lot better after 7 days...KJ August the kids will be out of school and hurricane season and a ship full of non English speaking...boy you are gonna have your hands full.
I have heard though that the ships now have such good information on hurricanes that they re-route their course to stay away from them so the worst you will have a whole new itinerary.
