Anyone going on the cruise from May 6th through the 23rd?
Beverly McKibben Apr 25, 2013 at 04:51 PM

Hello, out there! I would love to hear from anyone who is planning to take this cruise. The only posts on this site are from 2012.
Katherine Montserrat Jun 01, 2013 at 05:46 PM

I am considering it but haven't booked yet.
Beverly McKibben Jun 01, 2013 at 07:10 PM

This cruise left 5/5 and ended 5/23. It was great - the best cruise line ever!!!!
Katherine Montserrat Jun 03, 2013 at 06:34 PM

Oops! Didn't look at the dates carefully. I am considering this trip in May 2014.

Judy Carter-Johnson Oct 29, 2012 at 11:23 PM

Did not want to go into NY..so they changed our flight (formerly set for Tues night through Salt Lake City)..
Now we are fying out Thurs noon from Los Angeles to charleston w/change of planes in Atlanta. Hope to we get aboard ship in time for our shore excursion set for 9 am!!
see ya soon

Suzanne Seiffert Oct 29, 2012 at 04:15 PM

Now our flight is canceled but RS is rebooking us for Wed and we will go directly to the ship.

Judy Carter-Johnson Oct 29, 2012 at 12:16 PM

our tues flight on jet blue cancelled (all tues jet blue cancelled) - just rec'd call from RS - scheduled for 12 30 pm from Long Beach (even closer than LAX) TO SALT LAKE CITY THEN TO JFK.
IF That is cancelled we too will be going direct to Charleston.
see ya all one of these days!

Suzanne Seiffert Oct 29, 2012 at 12:00 PM

I just talked to RS and our plans are still the same, to fly tomorrow. The same info that Judy got. Hope that's true.

Martha Trunk Oct 29, 2012 at 11:43 AM

I'm now flying into Charleston on Friday - Looking forward to meeting you then.

Martha Trunk Oct 29, 2012 at 10:09 AM

I'm in DC - my Tuesday morning flight has been cancelled - forecast doesn't look too promising for a Tuesday arrival.

Judy Carter-Johnson Oct 28, 2012 at 08:34 PM

We are scheduled to leave LAX (Los Angeles) at 7 am Tues morning. We are packed and ready to go. Rec'd a call from RS that they are monitoring Jet Blue and as of noon today, all ok. It is now 5:33 pm and so far "no news is good news"

Martha and Suzanne, where do you live and when are you schedule to fly to NY??
Suzanne Seiffert Oct 29, 2012 at 08:11 AM

We live in upstate NY and are, also packed, but I don't think we'll get out tomorrow as scheduled. I don't think I'd want to be in NYC or on a ship in the next few days!
