|Norwegian Epic - Main Pool|
|Where is Chris?|
|Treetops - Vancouver, Canada|
Norwegian Epic alternates between Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries. Our conference was on the latter itinerary which included stops in Costa Maya, Roatan, and Cozumel. The picture of me in front of the Epic was in Roatan where we hired a local cab driver to take us around the island after we did a bit of shopping near the pier.
In June this year we attended Cruise3Sixty, CLIA's annual conference. This year it was held in Vancouver, Canada. We extended our stay following the formal conference which allowed for touring of some of the local attractions, which despite many trips there in the past, we had not had time for. I'm pictured here hiking through Treetops at the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
We wonder what the Pilgrims, who came to the New World in Tall Ships, would think about the Allure of the Seas. Their ships measured 110 feet, held 150 passengers at most, and took months to cross the Atlantic. The Allure is more than 10 times that length (1182 feet), holds almost 8000 passengers and crew, and took just a couple weeks to cross the Atlantic.
