The reports are great! Thank you Pete! Dominica sounds beautiful. I can't wait to hear about Barbados. Hope the ride last night wasn't too rough. Looking forward to the next post...

hey pete - 12 ft. seas? our captain came on at dinner last night and said that the winds were 60 mph and the seas were 27 ft. there were times when everything just slid on the table and you had to grab it! but it rocked us to sleep at night.

Yea...12' wasnt bad! Too me....
Seas are great now. Barbados was great....but I hate the new bus system to the terminal. The 5 star Cat with Tiami was awesome...as usual. Great weather, nice excursion. Short day...so we saw nothing else.

Tonight...Caribbean deck party.
Our second Couples massage was great. The people at Lotus Spa know us pretty well already. (and some bartenders....go figure!)

I'm sitting on my balcony buring these expensive minutes watching the night sky, and listening to the sound of the sea...ahhhhhh.

Take care FREEKS! I'll hoist a drink at the party for you!
Good night!

Sea day today...ahhhhh. Gotta love them.
St Thomas was great...Sunny Liston is second to none!

Saw a whale off the balcony this morning while having my morning coffee. (smuggled of course!) We are just North of the Turks & Caicos Islands on our way to Princess Cays. Weather is BEAUTIFUL!

Had the Pub Lunch at The Wheelhouse today. Yum. Nothing like fish & chips and a Bass Ale....

Last formal night tonight! Already started packing for our disembark on Wednesday. :-( Time flies when you are cruising!

Talk to you soon!

We had our first “Movies Under the Stars” experience last night. The movie was….what can I say….weird. (“Momma Mia”) Weather was windy and chilly on deck…but the blankets helped keep it cozy. We couldn’t use the fancy cushions because of the Noro-virus outbreak.

Emerald anchored off Princess Cays today, and it was a bit cool. High only 70 degrees…but very sunny. Snorkeling was good, and PC has changed since our last visit. It has quite a bit more to it than before. Very nice day in the sun.

Packing up now for the disembark tomorrow. That’s right…the cruise is over already! Ten days flies by in a hurry!

See ya Freeks!

I read about Emerald having Noro again...sorry to hear it was on your cruise as well. Sad It really has been a problem for her, ever since December. I feel bad for the crew, because as we all know, it's not the ship that's sick, just the pax that bring it on. silent

Welcome back! looking forward to your review!

Finally back home tonight after a long day of flying. Going from 80+ degrees back to -10 degrees is quite a shock to the body! OMG! I think my sunburn is frozen!

Yep....Noro-Virus hit the Emerald Princess pretty hard while we were on it.
Good old fashioned hand washing kept the bug away from us! (funny how some people are...boat full of germs, warnings, letters, standing orders, and such...and they still don't wash!) I'll put a full explanation of what goes on during an outbreak in my review. It's quite interesting.

Yea Steve...free wireless at FLL. OUTSTANDING! Not many airports that way...you gotta pay! (MSP) Not sure about Detroit....we ran from one gate right into another waiting plane....couldn't have spent more than 1 minute in that airport! YIKES! DELAY was the name of the game today.

Overall, it was a very good cruise...and we were sad to leave the ship this morning.
