    New and current weight watchers

    I've been on and off WW. I'm still giving it the old college try. Need to lose about 15lbs before my April 12th sailing on the Emerald Princess. I'm really trying this time so I'll hang in here with you guys. The Connect feature on the WW app is really great...check it out. LETS DO THIS!!!!!

    Cruises to Africa?

    Check Princess Cruise Lines. Call and ask them for a brochure on their Exotic Cruises. They have several itins to South Africa, North Africa, and West Africa. I believe they are also hitting the Seychelles next year.
  4. [quote name='PLG'][quote name='Leejnd4']We're looking at a Middle East cruise for 2009 that stops in Djibouti, Lamu Kenya, and Mombasa Kenya. We're primarily interested in the cruise because of its earlier port stops (in Egypt and Jordan), but it has these three port stops towards the end, and I know nothing about them. Honestly I'm a little surprised that they are even including Kenya - hasn't there been some civil unrest there that would render these stops as less than desirable? I know little about this other than what I recall seeing in brief news reports, so I have no idea if it even affects this area of the country. The cruise actually ends in Mombasa, so I'm particularly interested in that area. If anyone has been to any of these three port stops, I would love to get some input. We spent 3 weeks in Kenya a couple of years ago, with the last 4 days in Mombasa, and it was excellent! Of course there were no unrest at that time. Frankly, I wouldn't be too concerned today as things seems to have quieted down and the politicians realizes how important tourism is to their economy. We stayed at a hotel on the Indian Ocean and we found Mombasa to be the very best place to buy African artifacts, carvings and to just relax.[/QUOTE] We spent 3 weeks in Kenya a couple of years ago, with the last 4 days in Mombasa, and it was excellent!
