Enjoyed your Alaska review, this looks to be just as good! We have plans to go to the Caribbean in 2018, just trying to sort out details!

 

Thank you. Glad to have you along. I enjoyed the Caribbean, but we are doing Alaska with friends next year.

Well lets Continue!

 

Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there! Today marks the 10 year anniversary with our first sailing with NCL. Here is the boarding photo of our 2007 honeymoon cruise on the Norwegian Sun!

On our current journey, we woke up and loaded the car with our bags. Stopping for breakfast at IHOP near the hotel. That place was hopping. Mom and Susan.

So I gave the camera to Susan, who was on the right side of the car, and told her to get a couple of pictures of the Escape. She got pictures of a ship, just not the Escape!

We checked in and waited in the special assistance area, since Mom had arranged wheelchair assistance for Dad to get on the ship. We then at 11 am followed Dad up the ramp to board the Escape!
