I too had been following the other TR & was glad she had started to post the Navigators ~ fun to read them day by day. If you have a chance I was hoping maybe you would be able to post the Navigators here since hers are no longer available.

Thanks for such a great review!
sure will. been traveling to the power outage midatlantic. but will try to do it this weekend.

sounds like a nice trip planned!

I may have missed this, but were you allowed to watch fireworks from the concierge sun deck? Was there a good view from there? I hate the pirate party insanity but love the fireworks.

Thanks.
we watched them from our verandah. we were on starboard side. the concierge sun deck is open until 10pm so i bet you could.

Thanks. If I'm not mistaken I'm on the starboard side. Watching from the veranda would be great!

Thank you We live in Virginia but thankfully never lost our power -- lots of downed trees in our neighborhood but no real damage. We could certainly tell it was no "ordinary" windstorm Friday night!! Were you visiting your sister in VA? I hope you and she stayed safe and that her area wasn't hit hard.

I'm just glad I have yet to miss a natural disaster in the DC area in recent years - Irene, Lee, Earthquake, microbursts, spanish thunderstorms, you name it. I have great timing. We were fine, just very very hot. And hey it's good to completely clean out the fridge and freezer isn't it? Glad you didn't lose power.

Ship's Motion

Thank you for this great report. Can you tell me if you felt the ship's motion in your stateroom or in the lounge? My DD suffers from motion sickness so our prevous cruises have been midship. We are sailing concierge next year and I am a little concerned.

Thanks

we didn't have any problems at all. the seas were pretty calm for us though - some thunderstorms at night but pretty still otherwise and the motion didn't bother us at all this trip.

Fantastic report- thank you both so much. I loved getting both perspectives on the trip- very unique and enjoyable (and also mom's too at the end!)

Once I started reading I just couldn't stop! Really terrific, detailed narrative and great pics too!

We have never done concierge, and hope to someday athough we won't be when we cruise on the Fantasy in Sept. In fact we have one of the aft baclony rooms like your friends had- only not the middle reallly big one, one of the ones next door with an almost as big balcony!

Also we had a similar camera buying experience in St. Maarten last year. Not the same store (I don't think....) but the same deal where they give you the case and memory card package. We had to buy one though because our other camera got wet and ruined on an excursion. We didn't feel totally super ripped off at the time but when we got back realized we got an older model camera that we could have gotten cheaper in the states. It did keep charged properly though. So I know how you felt about that little situation.

Anyway I just loved seeing all of the new (to me!) and interesting things your family did, including the vow renewal! VERY nice!

Again, thanks for sharing your cruise with us. Awesome TR!

Wonderful

Thank you so much for this wonderful report! Loving it! We set sail next month on the Fantasy, not concierge, but I'm sure it will be amazing! So looking forward to it!

I love love love love love your report. I've been reading it very slow because I don't want it to end. Looks like you guys had a great time and all your pictures brought back so many memories! Today is exactly one month since my trip and I can't wait to do it again. I was so sad to get on the plane to come home, so I am trying to book another cruise before the end of the year. Can't decide when to go, I was thinking the 2nd week of December, so I need some suggestions!
