Well in a week's time I will once again be on the road and heading for Boston to board the Norwegian Dawn and the first of my 2 back to back cruises on that ship.
First it will be seven days coming and going to Bermuda provided another hurricane doesn't get us rerouted - While Hurricane Gonzola packed a punch and left many without power, Bermuda unlike many other countries in the region has strict building code and its infrastructure is designed to withstand these storms.
The second cruise will be a fourteen day repositioning of the Dawn from Boston to New Orleans - with stops in San Juan, Aruba, Curacao, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel before dropping anchor in New Orleans.
All of my land travel will be via Amtrak.
Due to time constraints I will only be arriving in Boston the night before and leaving NOLA the same day to get back to Vancouver for the Grey Cup festival where I have a volunteer assignment.
I have just started to process of packing - trying not to take as many clothes as on some of my previous cruises for a couple of reasons.
1. Less exposure to cooler weather - other than a stop over in Chicago on both legs and where you don't have to leave Union Station if you don't want to and
2. I get a free laundry on both legs of the cruise being that I am platinum on NCL. This time will try not to misplace some of my pants.
Over the next little while I will be posting more often and then as Internet becomes available or I pay for the ship's service I will attempt to provide a daily log of this trip.
