Many of you seem to have enjoyed reading my two recent blogs about sailing on a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords aboard Crown Princess back in 2013.
Well, that was my very first cruise, though not for my wife Lisa who had cruised before during her previous marriage.
Our most recent cruise was on Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas, that has been in the news after recently having to curtail two cruises because of stormy weather. We weren’t involved then but we were aboard during her maiden Atlantic crossing that sailed from Southampton on October 27 and docked in Cape Liberty on November 4 last year.
I wrote seven blogs during the crossing and another after we disembarked but I was not a member of this group at the time so they were not posted here. If you’d like a taste of our transatlantic adventure – here are links to each of my blogs from that time.
