3301  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Ancient Sites and Great Cities of the Mediterranean on: January 05, 2011, 03:33:48 AM
Mr. Rob Roberts, Manager of Princess Shore Excursions - Europe & Exotics, posted his blog about visiting Ancient Sites and Great Cities of the Mediterranean.  I think he did a fine job telling his story.  Here's the link:

3302  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Human pyramids exploded with showers of shimmering explosions on: December 28, 2010, 11:37:49 AM
"People sang songs and formed human pyramids, some 15 to 20 people high."

"The energy of the crowd exploded as well, with collective “oooooh” and “aaaaaah” exclamations punctuating each shower of shimmering explosions."

3303  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Re: New Princess Blog on: December 11, 2010, 02:33:58 AM
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept by the ship (for it is on Princess that our scene lies), rattling along the top deck, and fiercely agitating the scanty light of the lamps that were strung from bow to stern that struggled against the darkness.
3304  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / “Oh God, please, no earthquakes right now” on: December 07, 2010, 09:10:54 PM
"As we were traveling among the huge rock formations towering over our heads, all I could think was “Oh God, please, no earthquakes right now.”

3305  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Drinking in the details on: December 03, 2010, 11:17:29 AM
"As my husband signed the guest book, I took note of my father-in-law who, from the corner of my eye,  moved slowly around the room, pausing at intervals to stand close to artifact after artifact, drinking in the details."

3306  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Having an unforgettable goose bump moment on: November 16, 2010, 12:59:54 PM
"Just as we started through the last part of the Siq, I pressed ‘play’ for an unforgettable goose bump moment.  Handel’s music rose to a sudden rousing “forte tutti” entrance with trumpets at the precise time Petra’s towering treasury called Al Khazneh came into full view."

3307  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / The exhilaration of outright screaming on: November 09, 2010, 08:10:12 PM
"The exhilaration on the ride down made me laugh out loud – at least during the moments when I wasn’t outright screaming."    Huh

3308  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Remembering those poor wretched, smelly and abused donkeys at Santorini on: November 02, 2010, 11:04:58 AM
"What a perfect addition to my collection of authentic animal bells (I have many…really…including cow bells from Bali and Switzerland)."

"Now, as I sit in our cabin in Alaska, our wonderful cruise may seem a distant memory, but I keep my donkey bell in a spot where I see it often and can reflect on my journey to the cliffs of Santorini."

3309  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Just ambling along on: October 26, 2010, 01:32:35 PM
"On our visit we ambled along the streets downtown, marveling at large-scale examples of Art Deco such as the Old Telegraph Building, and smaller ones such as Kidson’s Building."

3310  Princess Cruising / Cruising Tips Chatter / The Super Elite OBC is "per family" on: October 25, 2010, 07:47:49 PM
I've learned that the 20 or more Princess cruises on board credit (OBC) is "per family." It is not for each individual qualifying person.   Sad
3311  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / "I didn’t have an epiphany or a cathartic episode" on: October 19, 2010, 10:09:14 PM
"I was surprised so little had changed, but my heart was gladdened to see the entrepreneurial spirit was still very much alive with little businesses flourishing everywhere."

"I didn’t have an epiphany or a cathartic episode, the kind of experience one would see in a movie.  I was just emotionally drained for a day."

3312  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / Puppy play time while feeling their little wet tongues. on: October 12, 2010, 06:45:56 PM
"And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, we returned to camp for some puppy play time.  Holding the latest litter of future sled dogs in our arms, feeling their soft fur and little wet tongues, was the perfect end to our time on the glacier."

Who writes this stuff?  Oh never mind,  It's coming straight from Princess.
3313  Princess Cruising / Cruising Chatter / At that moment I felt my grandmother’s presence on: October 08, 2010, 05:58:11 AM
There's a wonderful opportunity for us to create an annual Princess Chatter "Worst Princess Blog Prose" Award

Example:

"When I came through the chapel entrance, my heart leapt. Inside were the tiles. Blue. A familiar shade of cobalt.  At that moment I felt my grandmother’s presence.  Although she was miles away in my hometown of Reno, Nevada, I had never felt closer to her."
