Complete newbie. First cruise booked.

just booked our first cruise! It’s a...what is it called ? Oh yeah, a Back 2 Back. It starts in NY, goes up to Quebec for the first leg, 2nd leg comes back to NY. Total of 25 days on the Norwegian Dawn. Set for next September.

btw... my name is Emerson L Palmer. My parents were big fans, ( and had a sense of humor ) as am I. Good thing our last name wasn’t Crimson.

I joined a few years ago, probably through Ship Mates, but didn't start posting until recently. This forum is probably going to keep growing, so stick around! :)

Sept - the leaves should be peaking - great photo opportunities! Enjoy.

We live in the woods. We love Fall!
