I flew on Eastern, and on the flight back everyone was from the cruise, and we all started singing C, C, C, CC Carla C, CCC la, la, la, la, la, la, la......
My first and most favorite cruise ever. Booked with Singleworld...shared a cabin with 2 strangers...and had a blast. I still have my picture with Captain Nardini, as well as our waiter and Chef. Dinner (tables of 10) was a cross between French Service and Family Style. Waiters carried platters of food, and you could try anything they brought out, even if you didn't order it. There was a different theme every night and the waiters all dressed in the theme. There was also a display as you walked into the dining room. On Country Western night there were live baby chicks in the display.
I remember non-passengers were allowed on the ship until 11 pm before we left San Juan. It was their night out on the town(ship).
No towel animals back then, but every night you're bed was turned down, the night light was on. and there was always a special treat or souvenir on your pillow. No automatic doors, but bingo was cheap and had big payouts. payouts).
My kids laugh at the pictures and can't believe ships were that small. They want to know what we did for fun....Fun?
We were on a cruise, what could be more fun than that.
Oh what great memories.....
The "furthest in advance I've ever booked" cruise!
