Oasis came in and left as scheduled on Saturday despite Hurricane Isaac which had not yet arrived at South Florida. I expect they encountered some rough sailing but have not gone to the RCI site to read comments from those who were aboard.
Allure delayed her usual Sunday arrival until Tuesday and there were some really good natured Allure cruisers in our hotel. They took it in their stride and made the best of their extended Florida stay.
BUT when we go to FLL at a time when HAL has no ships in I have an emptiness in some deep part of me. It makes me realize how much HAL has become a part of our lives.
We usually would have been on Maasdam doing Canada/New England but DH could not take off that amount of time from his office so we substituted a shorter resort stay.
Anyone else feel attached to the ships in anything resembling that sort of way? I grant we've sailed a lot more than many and that surely is a factor.
