Hmmm... I would steer clear of any vacation involving Gloria Estefan. She was taking some time off from her tour in 1990 and she broke her back in a bus accident. After a lengthy recovery, in Sept. of 1995, she and her husband were enjoying a little cruise in their 33ft boat of the coast of Miami when a jet ski jumping the wake of their vessel collided and killed the pilot of the jetski and severely wounded his passenger. Yep, I would not cruise with her if I had a two category upgrade, free cocktails, a rabbit foot in each pocket and a four leaf clover clenched between my teeth.
No offense or disrespect intended. Just curious if you are self medicating?
Good news, Dave. I called Crown and Anchor and they credited me with some "missing" cruises that dated back into the early 90's. So now, I am officially a platinum member!
Now, more than ever, I want to get on a new RCI cruise to try out my new status!
Thanks for your help.
Dave, sounds like the cruise was great and I really enjoyed the pic in Labadee; I think I have one that I took from a similiar area last time we were there. Have to go back again just to experience the zip line If I dare. Also, I think somewhere in your posts you mentioned the lamb shanks; I was disappointed that they did not offer rack of lamb on our Explorer cruise 4/8 but had the shanks for first time and I have to now look for it in a cookbook to try myself.
Lamb showed up two or three times. The shanks and also lamb t-bone steaks - which were very good and an ample portion of two steaks too. I happen to like my lamb medium to medium rare and was not disappointed.
