Missing our Sailaway Parties....

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was just sitting here and thinking about our sailaway parties, and missing our fun times. What is the gang up to? When do we get to get back into our fun routine?

 

We got back from our QE cruise at the end of March and have been trying to avoid looking at cruises, at least until the new schedules come out, because won't be able to take one until 2017. It has been so mundane with the work schedule and miss the fun.

We have had a very rainy summer here in western PA. Doing much of nothing except dealing with health problems.

Oct 16 -- Oosterdam

Oct 17 -- Westerdam

Oct 18 -- Eurodam

They start the Caribbean sailing season.

Too bad there PTZtv doesn't have webcams in Vancouver and Seattle for the Alaska season.

I'm missing sailaways, too! Can't wait for October. I'm mainly gardening, and trying to stay cool in this heat wave we've been having here on the West Coast.

 

I kind of miss the lovely airconditioning we had in the house in Virginia!:) Of course, next year, we'll probably need the heating on all summer.

Hi, Barbara!

 

Still almost three months until our next sail-away party.:(:(:(

 

Enjoying my lazy days at the pool (only wish the pool was on a deck of a ship:D).

 

Good to hear from you!

Would certainly be nice to have the same quality webcams (FLL, Key West, Aruba) in VAN, SEA and SAN

Lurking in the back ground these days. Just too much moaning and

groaning on forums these days.

 

Hopefully, back in Ocotber. Do miss our group of CC friends.

 

Maybe I'll start a practice sail-away soon.:) Bruce

We seem to be having a colder winter, minus 7 degrees C some nights.

Lots of snow down south this winter.

 

Will start counting down the days until we sail on Noordam:)

Trying to keep out of mischief, working, cruise planning and longing to be on a cruise ship.

 

I'm up for a practice, Chief.

LOL, ditto here - gardening, cruise planning.

 

I do miss the sail a ways, but not the horrific snow storms that went along with them last sail a way year.

Well, you can rest assured that it's nicer where you are than it is at sailaway central. Hot and humid are the order of the day; although there's a decent breeze most of the time. Looking forward to "seeing" you all in a few short months.

After having such a crappy cruise on the Westerdam in April, I've lost all interest in sailaways in Fort Lauderdale. Could care less!!

A practice sailaway could be possible on Saturdays with Oasis of the Seas or Sundays with Independence of the Seas. Sometimes, there are two ships sailing. I have yet to figure out Carnival Conquest's schedule.:confused: Not as regular as Carnival Freedom's was, I don't think.

I, too, have really missed the sailaways, and am so happy to have great memories of the Sailaway Gang Westerdam 2015 cruise.:D Best cruise ever, with the best bunch of people you can imagine (mostly) - nothing could spoil it, though there were challenges to be sure, LOL! And I'm not just talking about the lack of hot water.... minor detail.:)

I, too, am so happy we decided to take the Sailaway gang cruise with such a great group of people who know how to have fun. It was wonderful to reconnect with some old friends and to meet new ones. I don't remember when I've had so many laughs on a cruise. It just went by too quickly.

I agree. Laughing so much is so memorable of that cruise.

 

We should do it all again. :D

And many of us are, in May.:D And this was all thanks to the sailaway threads in the first place.

The Conquest does alternating 6 and 8 day sailings, so it's usually here on the weekend. The only other ship is the Independence of the Seas. Let me see if the ships all line up on a particular day. It's too bad you missed the fireworks boats from the 4th of July. They were really cool looking.
