Hi Stormy, we also sailed on the Jan. 3rd cruise and I DID SEE you! I didn't read these msgs on this site until after we got back but when you said you had the Alaskan malamute, I knew who you were. My husband just LOVED your dog. He came home and wanted one!
But, anyway...just wanted to let you know that we saw you but I'm sure you have no idea who we were.
To reply to SHORT - please read my review on the Golden Princess for more details about embarkation and debarkation. From our experience, I can sum them both up as being CHAOTIC! I've never seen anything like it in my life. But, anyway, that was our experience, don't know if Stormy also felt the same way.
