Had to get a rental car and checked into a hotel. I was too shaken up to drive. We plan to continue at 12 midnight, I want to be on the road with the least amount of traffic. Still a little gun shy. It could have been a lot worse. All my body parts are in tact and working, can't ask for anything more.

Could use some pixie dust for our drive tonight.
Glad to hear that you're ok, too bad on the ticket, but at least you're all ok!

Hope the rest of your trip goes without a hitch!

Oh! And TOP!

Kinda off-topic, but I just downloaded my picture with the Stanley Cup. I am extremely pleased with it!

Back on-topic, just booked my flight with Southwest! Just about $160 (purchased points that I needed so I could reserve the flight on points). Gotta love frequent flyer stuff.

Talked with my sister today, they just got back last night from their cruise to Alaska.

They had a great time, they went on Princess cruise line...she said it is just gorgeous there...while they were at glacier bay, the ship did a very slow turn that took almost an hour...she said it was amazing to see...

the only downside was, this was their first cruise ever...they had some issues with Princess staff...not very nice, they went to customer service desk and they were rude. They had a flight out at 11:15 and they were not scheduled to get off the ship till 11:00 so when they went to the service desk, and they told them, they said, well what would you like us to do about this?? Really, lets not say, lets see how we can get you off soon so you can catch you flight!!...they did get an earlier time to disembark the ship, but really!! Plus she said there were other issues with the staff....and the food was ok....kinda hit and miss. the first night they were in the dining room for 3 hours.

Oh well, they really need to try a Disney Cruise....

You have to know, I was SHOCKED when I pulled up the ones Dave had checked and Salsa Salsa was on there in BOTH ports...he HATES dancing, and has no rhythm whatsoever.
I thought he was gonna die the one time I talked him into ballroom dancing class on the ship. We weren't even inside the class because he wouldn't go inside, we were in the passageway. 5 minutes in and he's dying. We will get over in the corner and hide with you!

Wow, looks like you are all set. Are you trusting your travel agent to get your palo brunch? I am signing on at 12:01 to try and get something. Your TA might not try until he/she gets into work. JMHO

You will probably see mark at the Mexican cuisine in Cozumel, he did this on another cruise and really enjoyed it.

I think the cruise industry as a whole is changing. The food thing seems to be becoming a common topic on cruise lines these days. They are all trying to find ways to cut costs. Mark is a chef and I am a pretty good cook too, spices and flavoring is not that expensive.

The staff on all cruise lines work really hard, long shifts and not much time off. I personally would be hard pressed to have a happy face 24/7. I don't expect the staff to be cheery all the time, but I do expect basic manners. No excuse for rudeness. As much as I am not a complainer, I think comment cards are where you need to mention the rudeness. It should be dealt with.

I replied to this the other day but it looks like my post got eaten

I hope everything ended up okay and you are both taking care of yourselves. Have the cats fared well after all?
