Ida Down - Answered a Question by JUKES (21 Jul 08 00:14)

Well Mr. Jukes, The Good Mr Burrows said "should" and normally we would agree with the Good Mr Burrows but this has not been a normal year and whilst we hope that will be the case this is not a year for firm prognostication particularly with the Atlantic. As far as what do young forty year olds do who don't dance or play bridge, well.... each morning you will receive a news sheet with all the activities and events on throughout that day and they will range from energetic shuffleboard to absolutely captivating napkin folding and if at the end of the day you say I found nothing of interest then we will all be surprised. So much to do ...so little time and don't forget that you will get five extra hours to fill going that way...... You'll love it .... Ida.

Dear Ida, I'm afraid that "should" was not mentioned in my answer of 3rd July! This has given me several sleepless nights since, but I am still confident that my forcast for the Jukes QM2 transatlantic crossing on 1st August will come to fruition! Just five days before this epic cruise and the weather is as predicted. I only hope that it has not peaked too soon! Just on the off chance that this does prove to be the case, here is link to a photo of what the Jukes can expect! /imagepopup.php?src=/images/gallery_upload/0000QE2+2008+045.jpg.jpg. Happy cruising.

So, the new Royal Caribbean ship The Symphony of the Seas has done her maiden voyage and will be delighting her customers as this ship is amazing.I was lucky enough to board her for two nights recently and she didn’t disappoint. Another ship in the Oasis class along with her sister ship, The Oasis, The Allure & Harmony of the seas. She’s identical to the Harmony. It’s so nice when you go on a brand new ship.
