I agree with Karlg. Mucho gratias to Irvine who followed the footsteps of RichC to provide us with much needed info about sailing across the Pacific. I owe much to both, and my wife and I are set to sail from Long Beach on Sunday on the same cruise. If there is any interest left remaining, I will continue the tradition. I am Platinum, so not worried about internet costs.
Bob & Bev,
please, by all means, keep the tradition going. I'm leaving on the same cruise on April 26 and would love to hear how your trip is going. I, also, owe a great debt to RichC and Irvine Traveler. I hope I am able to contribute something also for future travelers.
Have a great trip. I'll be watching your departure via bridge cam.
Speaking of bridge cam, see what you can do about that, please. I would like to see the splash pool and the horizon.
We continue to have very calm seas, with wavelets. Temp this AM is 62F. I switched back to long pants today from shorts. Many of the passengers are wearing sweaters or a light jackets today. Still great weather if you're coming from the deep freeze areas of the world.
We have had many of the Academy Award nominated movies on this cruise in the larger theater. Babel, Queen, Dreamgirls, today is Little Miss Sunshine. They show the films mid-day at 2:30 PM.
Tnight is the last formal night, waiting for lobster. We just concluded a tour of the galley. Be sure to put that on your list of things to do on board if you have never taken the tour.
Out for now. I am up $130 on the slots, wife is down $60. I lock her in the room now. HaHa!
We didn't do anything in Ensanada except get off the ship to see what they had for sale (which wasn't much) We re-boarded immediately & went to diner. They offered 2 tours but there weren't many people that went on them. I think there was a local shuttle bus for a few bucks which went into town, but we weren't interested.
Thanks for all the posts. It helps make the waiting go a "little" faster.
Bob & Bev, We follow you on March 27th and will be looking forward to any posts you can make. Have a great cruise just like the past two cruises have been.
