Hi Christoph43.
Sorry took so long to reply, have a touch of sciatica at present and physio says not supposed to sit up for long periods. Mind you been having traction monday to fridays so should be a little taller before we cruise :roflmao:
Have you been on Jade before.? My only experience with NCL was a short inaugural cruise on Gem with others from this site. Hubby didn't come with me so will be his first time with NCL.

Hi Christoph 43.
Jades a little smaller than Epic, Pool bar sounds nice :) Though have yet to check what tempertures are like in Barcelona at that time of the year.

Under 3 weeks to go.:) :dancing_banana:
Had to pay an excess on my travel insurance to cover my recent sciatica :bawling: Mind you as the policy was free in the first place can't complain.
Been looking at the tours on line at NCL, think will do one in Madeira which includes a nice coach tour out around the island, go on the cable car and of course wine tasting. Hic :)
Seems the seas are staying calm for her sea day today as she heads towards Malaga.

I've done the sled ride before many moons ago.:)

And I'm certainly sure my physio would not be impressed if I attempted it again at the moment.

hmmm...maybe not a good idea then, perhaps :)

I was going to give it a go in 2011 when I was in Funchal aboard Costa Victoria but a variety of things got in the way...I will give it a go one day though (if I can get the butterflies to quit fluttering) :laugh:

Did that ride when we stopped there on the RCCLs Voyager cruise out of Barcelona to Galveston. All I can say is I was terrified until we started off and once underway loved it. Would I do it again? No I too have sciatica, but glad I had the experience.

Hi Chuck. :)
I will look out for you waving. Look out for the woman with a bearded man with a pint tea mug in his hand, it goes everywhere with him. :) I've already booked the good weather and calm seas for us.:)
Have a good cruise Chuck :)
