The time for my vacation on a cruise ship is coming closer. I arrive in New York at 5:00 am on August 28th. Yes that is right. 5 am in he morning. A terrible time to arrive anywhere but the fare was so much cheaper. So we are going to drop luggage off at the hotel and do something before we can check in. Then we will sleep for a few hours in the afternoon before meeting up with everyone else who will be on the trip. We will go to China Town and out for dinner. We sail August 29th from New York. Places that I will be visiting include Newport, Boston, Bar Harbor, and then onto Canada, namely St. John and Halifax. I am going on a few scheduled tours as I would like to see the whales and also the Titanic Museum. Most of the time I will be hopping on trolleys and buses to see everything. These shore trips can be very costly. So do any of you live in these places? If so, will you come out and wave to me?

I'm waving a flag at you, but you probably can't see it from way over here!

Yu are not doing it right. Don't wave now. Wave when I am on the boat and remember that I do wear bifocals

I'm just a rebel... Do I have to fly to New York to wave properly?

That would be great if you could but magic does happen. So let us pretend in our minds and remember that I will be waving back to you. I'm now making lots of lists and have just ticked off - get your roots dones asap. That's a relief. Now I do not have to worry about hair. Just what to pack!

I hope you enjoy your trip! I don't live on the East Coast so I can't wave to you ;0) Sounds like a great itinerary and alot of things to see. I'd like to go on a trip too, darn kids, darn lack of money... *sigh* but that's the way life rolls.

Listen, it has turned out to be the most expensive cheap trip ever. When my GF asked me to go the cruise was only $446 and I said well, that's cheap. But by the time you factor in the port tax charges, plus air fare to NY and staying overnight in a hotel. Well it is not cheap! so my credit card is maxed out but so what? I have wanted to do this cruise so much and it is coming true.

Hi deewinc, I was wondering where you had got to. I think that the price depends on the value of your currency. Also this is a cheap price to stay on a cruise ship for 8 days with everything included. Don't you think so? everything is relative I suppose. At least that is what my husband always said. I've maxed out my credit card and so what? I plan to go somewhere else next year and max it out again!! I have insured it so my children will not have to pay it when I die! I would like to do a few things that I have always wanted to do before I leave this earth. Do you blame me? I ma so glad to see you again, dear friend. Many blessings!

Thank you for the wave! I have always had a fascination about the Titanic from I was a young child and I am thrilled that I am going to to see the museum. and then of course the movie also whetted my appetite. I am beginning to get so excited about the trip. One day I expect I will grow up - but not just yet

Hope that you have a great time! I have never been on a cruise nor do I ever think I would want to! Your itinerary looks pretty busy. I will have to wave to you from here. None of your ports are near me. Big huggers to you!

You must be pretty excited. I too will be going to Australia in September, visiting my sister and niece and I can't wait. Cynthiann, although our paths won't cross, I'll think of you in New York on 30th August and wave to you from my heart. Have a glorious trip.

Many thanks Sue. I am so looking forward to experience being on a cruise ship. My sister has been to Australia at least five times and she said that it is amazing. I also wish you to have a good time there when you go. It is such a large country and there is just too much to see on one trip. I would love to see Sydney though. I have heard that it is really a wonderful place to see

Well, I'm in NY, but about 5 hours from the city! I have quite a busy weekend next week too... my friend is coming to stay with us, and we'll be going to the State Fair and going to see Jeff Dunham!! I'm really excited. Plus hubby is taking a week off that following week, and I certainly can't wait for that!

Thank you so ,much Rocket. I have always had a fascination for the Titanic from I was a little girl and am looking forward to seeing the museum. They also have history classes on board ship before you go to these places. There is another place that you can reach from Halifax where the Maroons were exiled from Jamaica to escape from the British rule. We still have maroons on the Island and they have their own area where they love called the cockpit country (and some other places) they were not under British Jurisdiction when the Brits captured the Island. They live all over the Island and also in other countries but they have allegiance to their leader that they elect. This would be good to see their museum too. Just remembered, the place is called Darthmouth. You reach there by a ferry from Halifax.This should be so interesting and then to see the whales!!! I am just beginning to get so excited. Thank you for your best wishes.
