Hello again, I have been showered with questions about cruising, the ship, costs and other info. I will attempt to get alot of this info posted right now. Normally we conduct a cruise nite for a question and answer period and obtain a sign up sheet. Since we are so spread out, This Forum and my web page will have to suffice. OK. Time to sit back and read. Here is a photo of your ship. She is a floating palace. Some of the staticts are as follows; She was built in 2004, Her gross tonnage is 115,875 , she is 945 feet long and 122 ft wide. Her passanger capacity is 2670 double occupancy passangers, her crew size is 1,100. She has 1,337 staerooms and suites of which 960 are outside, with 748 of those having private balconies. Folks, this is a BIG ship. All staterooms feature private bathrooms with showers, individually controlled air-conditioning,twin beds that convert to queen, some have additional bunks for childern. most have refrigerators and spacious closets, hair dryers and private safes. You will have turndown service and of course TV and phone. Once you board you will be taken to a whole new world of living. For those of you who have never cruised before, you will be blown away. There are photographers to take your photos (you gotta pay for them) and servers to take care of your beverages.
