Just letting you know that I am back to the neighborhood.
After my last problem laden cruise (absolutely NO problems with the ship (Regal Princess), just with Princess corporate, their flight section and American airlines), my real life became a bit complicated.
A major change of life with my forced retirement (age discrimination is legal within the US Government) and my wife being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I wasn't in the mood for posting.
All things work out in the end, though. My wife has been diagnosed as in remission, and I am getting used to not having to go to work (actually kind of nice), and am finally able to cruise again. In fact, I just booked a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise with NCL.
Looking forward to the myriad of interesting conversations and catching back up with everybody!
