Company chairman and CEO of parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Richard Fain said, ““Collecting stranded British and Irish holidaymakers is a fitting first mission for new ship Celebrity Eclipse – what better way for a ship dedicated to the UK to mark her arrival?”
KUDOS from Cruise Ready Store to Celebrity and parent company, Royal Caribbean International, for once again sailing to the rescue!

It's the 34th year for the event, and, according to the press release, ". . . includes a national, one-hour, live entertainment broadcast on NBC-TV beginning at 9 p.m. and takes place on board Norwegian Epic where invited guests will have a front row view of the fireworks display."
Those lucky guests should have a spectacular view of the fireworks celebrating our nation's birthday from the Norwegian Epic's pool deck and outer decks. NCL says their hosting of the Macy's fireworks display will serve as the finale of inaugural festivities for their brand new ship.
The Inaugural Sailing of the Norwegian Epic departs Southampton on June 24. She'll arrive in Manhattan July 1.
BONUS - Macy's and NCL will be giving away a cruise for four on the Epic. Look for more details in June. They'll be published at http://www.macys.com/fireworks

Oh, the last day of the cruise... they always come, don't they? I'm bring back a few photos ... but not a lot. I'll try to post one or two next week sometime.
Tonight, when we give our final tips to our cabin steward and dining room wait staff, I'll be using one of Cruise Ready Store's newest items - specially designed (by me) Crew Member Thank You cards. They have a very short pre-written message inside, with plelnty of room left for a handwritten message. (or not) Those folks work SO hard to make our few days at sea so very special, and they succeed. So, I'm happy to finally have a special card in which to enclose our tips... and I hope it will bring an extra smile to their faces. They bring so many to ours.
