Funny, I was just looking at a Princess Cruises 2017-2018 Cruise Atlas.
You never know, we may one day get together.

Great to hear from you Rev. We took a cruise of the Mediterranean on Holland America in July/August. Met some great folks and enjoyed all the ports. We are planning a river cruise in the spring from Budapest to Bucharest with pre-cruise 5 days in Warsaw and Krakow (where my relatives came from) and 5 days post in Transylvania.

Linda is your sister-in-law, correct? She lives about 1.5 hours from us.

Bill and I are involved with our HOA. Bill does the advertising section of the newsletter and I am distribution manager overseeing about 50 volunteers who deliver to each home in the community.

I have 8 grandchildren now; 6 boys and 2 girls.

Glad to hear from you. Keep in touch.

Every time I looked, there was no new post. I thought I'd posted a couple of times, but they must not have posted properly.

How is everyone doing? I would like to continue this thread, if any of you also want to.

Haven't been on any cruises. I got my master's degree in December 2015. Got a job in August 2016, but I only taught there (a technical college) for one academic year; it was not a great place to work for various reasons. I have applied for several jobs where I used to work, but haven't heard anything back about any of them yet.

I hope you all are doing well. I don't use Facebook all that often. I will try to get back here more often. *HUGS* to all.

I don't want to stop this thread. At Hershey Park with grandkids currently. No cruises planned this year but have three next year! Love reading posts on Facebook but here as well.

Great picture, Linda! Whenever I get a job, we hope to be able to plan another cruise. What are the three that you have planned for next year?

Hope everyone has a great week!

I can't believe we have three planned ! Our first is in February on Royal Caribbean to Puerto Rico and St Martin. Then in August we fly to Paris and then sail around the British Isle on Princess. Finally in December we fly to Buenes Aires and sail around the bottom of South America on Celebrity. We prefer Celebrity but their British Isles cruise starts in Amsterdam and didn't stop as many places as Princess does. Hope your job search is successful soon. What kind of job are you looking for?

Hi all my Caribbean Princess friends, I am never sure if anyone ever comes here anymore but wanted to post. Right now its minus 13 outside with lots of snow. All that is keeping me going is dreaming of being on our February Cruise on Freedom of the Seas. I don't know if anyone has sailed on this size ship. It will be the biggest that we have sailed on. We are also starting to book some excursions for our summer cruise to the British Isles. We don't plan to do much in February except enjoy the sunshine, views and do some ziplining in St Kitts so far.
I am really enjoying retirement and am busy with all sorts of volunteering. I have been approached about going back to work as a nurse but have turned it all down. Hope you all are staying warm.

Hi Joanne... we have worked hard not to get the flu here. I didn’t want to have us sick before our cruise. Lots of Savanna’s friends had either a GI bug or the flu so I was worried. They were diligent on the ship about cleanliness which helped.

Thanks Ken and Carol and Happy Anniversary. We are still in touch although four of us keep in touch through Facebook as well. We are cruising three times this year. We did a Caribbean Royal Caribbean cruise in February , doing a Princess British Isles tour this summer and a Far East Celebrity Cruise this winter. Enjoy the Equinox.. she is one of our favorite ships

Hello, all! I thought I'd pop in here to see what was going on.

No cruises in our near future--I still don't have a full-time job, though I did teach two online courses this semester. I'm hoping to get at least one for summer. Still looking for full time, but not finding much. I've applied for some things, but don't ever hear from the places I apply to. A bit discouraging. I went to a job fair at our local hospital and talked to two women there. Left my resume as well. Several days after the job fair, one of them called and left a message that they wanted me to come in and talk with them. She said she was going to be out the rest of the week, but if she missed my return call, she'd call back the beginning of the next week. I called and left a message to let her know I'd received her message. She didn't call at the beginning of the next week (that was about a month ago). I left her one more message that week, and have called back without letting it go to voice mail to see if I can get her in person, but no luck.

I just also applied for a part time job at my local library. Will see if I hear anything.

I hope everyone is doing well. I read on Facebook where Joanne or Linda (can't remember which) posted that Rev passed away--that is very sad.

Merry, I am knitting a log cabin blanket for a friend--it's made up of little log cabin squares. I think it will be really neat when it's finished.

Take care, everyone. *HUGS*

Hi Elesa,
So glad someone else popped in here. It’s hard to believe how active we used to be. I am still on Cruise Critic but usually only when we are planning a trip. I am so sorry you have not having luck in the job market. How rude that person was not to call you back. I am sure there is something out there for you. I made several log cabin knitted blankets for high school graduation presents. I dint think either of my sons still have theirs. All those hours I put into them...arghh! I crochet now most of the time instead. Hang in there....
