I was married to a Jewish Guy my best friends are Jewish, I love them
You do not want to
Cruise with us, It is your loss, because these people here are
wonderful folks to go with, I met and cruised with people who not only
became friends they became Family...
And you didn't even mention that you took the group to the Synagogue in
Curacao, and that a good percentage of our Viking gang are Jewish, and very

At least, thank you for your reply and perhaps someday we will sail
together and we can have a more intelligent discourse on the subject.

I really like the longer cruises - you don't get the benefit of not
packing and unpacking otherwise.
I like B2B as long as they give you the same cabin and as long as
there is a self service laundry. I don't think I could get Bob to do
one unless thee was one and they seem to be vanishing.
We've done 3 B2B and on one we also had two successive ships with a
The first B2B they made us move rooms between because they screwed up
our reservation, but even so it wasn't too bad. They helped us move,
and we just picked up the clothes on the hangers and moved them from
one cabin to the other - not really packing. We once moved houses
that way - Bob was transferred to an airfield 45 miles away and we
just put the kitchen drawers in the car and drove them to the new
place and emptied them out and then went back.
That first B2B was a Caribbean cruise and then a Repositioning cruise
so it wasn't exactly the same itinerary.
The next year we did a repositioning cruise and then had a week
between and got on a Christmas cruise which was in two parts - 9 days
eastern and then 5 days western Caribbean out of Miami. In Miami,
even not moving cabins we had to physically get off the ship and go
through customs/immigration and then wait a bit before we got on
The third was two 13 day cruises through the Panama Canal to Peru and
then back to Florida on the second one.

I never said Everyone from NY BUT these folks DUE indeed come from teh
Bronx and Brooklyn, as we had our cocktail party they were in the
area next to us and it was the Bronx Group and they live in Florida
Pompano Pines etc. I was sincere . Hey I am italian if theyw ere
italian I would have said that too.... it is what it is and We have
gone from Ft Lauderdale 4 times and all 4 times that week seems like
the same people. IF youw ere on there YOU would have thought the same
thing. RUDE IS RUDE and NO need for RUDE ..some old people are
contankerous goodness knows My mom was God rest her soul, I would NOT
take her to the casino cause I was to embarassed too NO need to be
that way. These folks need a lesson in manners.
as i said the folks and the sailings we have had this issue is from Ft
lauderdale not from any other port Not even bayonne! Not Miami either!
so as I said it was what it was and some are just so melodramatic.....
Good thing our cruisers are spring Chickens! LOL

We have also met many RUDE people from florida( snow birds from new
york) but the really nice ones we met came mostly from united kingdom
and texas. We also have many,many very nice jewish friends. But it
seems like you can always tell the rude floridians on board,they think
their s---t does not stink.
