I am so glad to hear you are keeping your promise. You know she's with you on every cruise, too! Sure wish we were going on the Epic together. It'd be great to meet you! Maybe you could talk my hubby into cruising more

penny- Right now you'll be disembarking the Epic and I'll be in the embarkation line (Oct. 30th 2010 cruise) meaniing we'll be within yards of each other facing the opposite directions! Maybe ,just maybe... one can also change dates .. It would be neat!!-

My plans are always flexible!! Easier to convince your No.1 when it's done face to face!!

The reason I selected the week I did, is because his birthday is the 20th of October. I told him it was his birthday present. He wasn't thrilled.

Didn't he have a birthday last year too??? Gee Penny he has it awful good!!!! It's a great gift!!! My No.1 and I did it for each other many times over - She was a cruiser from the get-go (And I never needed to be convinced to set sail -anytime and anyplace - so long as I could take leave)!

Just the Ice Bar alone on the Epic will be worth the cost of the cruise (Only 14 Ice Bars in the World!) and NCL prices are actually quite good right now!!

I couldn't believe the price, with 1/2 off deposit, I just couldn't resist. I'm going to have to put off our Panama Canal until 2011, but I am so excited to see the Epic. She really looks like she's wearing a hat from the outside, but the interior looks spectacular. I'm sure heads will turn when she sails into port.

My hubby has never cruised on NCL, in fact, he never cruised until he met me. I've tried to turn him into a cruiser, but it just hasn't worked. He always has a wonderful time, but would rather be sitting in his recliner with me waiting on him. Might be his idea of a vacation, but not mine

penny - I'm sure he'll warm up to cruising after a few in the Epic's Ice Bar! I think the angle you view the Epic from has a lot to do with one's perception of her appearance. From another angle she really does not appear ungainly as her intial press photos made her look!. I just don't understand why NCL released views of her from that less than complimentary angle!!

Hi ivanai31, welcome to Cruise-Chat. The reason we talk about the passengers on this board is because it is a board for passengers and not crew members. We do have crew members stop by once in a while, but not often. You must be very proud of your boyfriend. They did a great job putting out the fire and keeping everything under control. No injuries were reported, at least publicly, which is wonderful.

We wish you and your boyfriend well.

LOL
I just stepped off the Spirit this morning and
I'm already trying to con my son into convincing my hubby to take me on the Oasis for my birthday in December!
A brilliant plan, don't you think?
He'd rather be home as well. He's rather fond of my cooking!
