Not being to bright in the brain department I bought a new printer yesterday to print my e tickets off what a pa lava started at 5 o'clock finished at midnight.
why don't they make anything the same as what you had before my swear box is over flowing,but at least I've started to save for my next cruise.



It will be interesting to hear what you think of Ventura, Dodge. I have read so many mixed reviews and it seems that some love it and others hate it. With an itinerary such as yours (I love La Rochelle too), I hope that whatever you think of the ship, you will have a great time. :)

If I'd believed all the negative reviews I'd read about Ventura, I'd never have tried her. She is now one of my favourite big ships. I loved Ramblas and enjoyed the fact she has a covered pool when the weatherisn't too good.

La Coruna is a delight!

Oh dear, sorry to hear about difficulties with your printer. Pleased to say hubby is good with technical things.................. I wouldn't know where to start. :oops:

Hope you have a super time on Ventura! :D

Thanks for the well wishes printer now working well ,[ I think it was me all the time ]
On the last cruise on Oceana last year we meet a nice couple who became drinking partners who we spent many a evening until 2.30 to 3.00clock talking with the odd drink every 10 minuets or so, they have booked also to go on this cruise so am destined for some more late nights :D

Diane- they were selling a canvas print of Ventura in grand Turk, on board last year. G managed to win £57 at Bingo ( the only time he ever plays is on board), so he went to ask the price, to buy for me. At first they said it was £100, but eventually let him buy it for what he'd won.
Mind you, it was a beggar self- disembarking with a 4ft. picture under my arm!
Love your pics....

Hi Jo we tried the bingo never won a penny lol Well done to G for winning. That was great getting the canvas print for that price, I'm picturing you getting of the ship with it under your arm lol Loved Grand Turk and Ventura, I know people say this n that about the ship, but we had a fantastic time on her. Would sail on her again n again :D

Go for it Jo, we loved the Ventura so much. Especially the Beach House and East on an evening :)

The food on the Ventura was the best we have had on a ship or any land based holidays, although Jersey comes a close second.

I can honestly say I loved everything about this ship, I hope the Oceana is as good next May.
