Hello all

It's been a while since I have been here. Hope everyone is OK.

Middy You have a great cruise lined up in The Baltics. We did it last year on Emerald Princess. The cities you visit are all beautiful.

Hiya John :)

How's things ? Have you finished all those exams now ?

Really looking forward to the Baltic cruise as it's one area not been to before. Chris has been perusing the tours, I'm waiting on booking them though as I work with a Russian Doctor at the minute and she's gonna advise me in regards the St Petersburg tours.

Say hello to Mary for me :)

H Middy

All the exams finished and all passed. I have some qualifications I didn't think I would achieve at my age. Now doing further study, a glutton for punishment,

You will love St Petersburg. You must see the Summer & Winter Palaces plus Catherine's Palace. They are the must sees.

Glad to hear you passed John :) Sounds like you have the bug now.
Thinking of getting around to a degree myself, need another avenue that's a little gentler on my ageing back, now that with the changes I have another 17 years to work..

I don't think I have the bug, I think i must be an idiot.:roflmao:
Can't be an idiot otherwise you wouldn't have passed.
Dan's hoping to go to Uni in the Autumn, says I'm only thinking of doing a degree so that he won't be able to say I'm more qualified than you. Will take him 3 years whilst because of prior learning will take me 1.

A year doesn't seem long, but is when you have your head in the book. But it would be nice to have one up on Dan.:)

How is Chris doing?
 

middy

Deckhand
Dan's biting his nails waiting for his results at the minute. :rolleyes: He did an adult access to Uni course.
Chris is fine, currently at work, doesn't finish till about nine.:crap:
We never seem to get our off duty to match. Or maybe he's trying to avoid me :laughalot:

Whens your next cruise ?
 

John

Deckhand
Our next cruise is on Jewel of the Sea to New England in October. Then we have another one booked April on Indy, transatlantic from Ft Lauderdale to Southampton.
 

middy

Deckhand
Chris was mentioning a transatlantic on Indy the other day. Not sure which way he was talking about, will ask him when he gets home.
After August I have to find a good place for the two little men for when we cruise, as Dan won't be available for dog sitting.

Hi BooBoos Mum. :)
Have added your trip on bon voyage thread. Not long for you to wait.:)
Hope they still do that thing where they prepare one of all the dishes they serve at dinner. You can see them as you enter through one of the doors. Certainly helps you make your choice.:)
