The Cruise to no where was a great way to check out the ship and Barnd. The food was very very good and service too. I understand why it's called the Fun Ship now !! They had some fun things going on all over the ship and it was a blast to see what people would do to win that coveted prize called "The plastic ship on a stick" ! I felt that they did not have much that was extra but on the NCL Gem a few weels back so many things were extra out of 13 restaurants 3 were included in the fare. Even suzzi had a fee and Mexican and you had to also pay $5 to have a pizza in your cabin. All and all they all have something to offer everyone and my heart is still with Celebrity tee hee !

A cruise to nowhere is indeed a good way to see if a particular line fits your expectations. Seabourn has a 2-nighter coming right after I leave the Rock Legends cruise in a few weeks, but they want too much money. It would be $1500 for me as a solo and that is ridiculous for 2 nights.

I don't understand why you're not jumping on that Dave.

10 days to go! so we have a looooong day ahead of us, it'll be about 24 hours to get from small town, USA, to Rome, Italy. Any tips from the pro travellers on a roughly 12, 13 hour plane trip?

Try to get some sleep on the flight. I take lots of reading material, sudokus, and a journal. There's usually a movie or two I find interesting since I seldom go to the movies at home. I've even heard of people taking their Christmas cards with them to address envelopes and write notes. If you knit, crochet, or cross stitch, take a small project to work on.

One other tip that works for me is to set my watch to the time at the destination city. I do this around the time the plane takes off. This tip was told to me many years ago by a good friend, and it has definitely helped me combat jet lag.

Like CruiseFanatic, I also try to get several hours of sleep and watch a couple of movies. Addressing Christmas cards is a great idea!

Thanks for the tips. Oh! I almost forgot... body scan or grope? which is least humiliating to you, i haven't decided yet.


ps. i dont mean to offend any TSA officials, or the like by calling it a grope, but really, I watch the news, it certanly isn't a patdown.

The body scan doesn't bother me. It's over so quickly and they're calling the next one in the booth. I've never seen anyone goggling at the screen. I've never been groped either.
