Holland America Cruise 2011
We returned a few days ago from our cruise in the Caribbean, a trip with our worst flight experiences ever. The night before we left Valerie awoke coughing and by the time we arrived at the airport in Rome she was dealing with the flu. Not a pleasant way to spend 11 hours on a trans-Atlantic flight.
We had a six hour lay-over in Atlanta, where Delta “misplaced” our luggage and we finally located it with some persistent questioning. New Years Eve we were in the Miami Airport and Valerie spent the next two days in Miami in bed recuperating.
We boarded the cruise in Ft. Lauderdale and had an enjoyable time in the Eastern Caribbean with my family. The weather was warm and sunny and there were no problems on the ship. We even filled the sports bar onboard with Buckeye fans to watch the Sugar Bowl, no Razorback fans to be found.
|O-H-I-O Go Buckeyes!|
The problems with Delta continued on our return flights when there was a delay leaving Miami which bumped us off our flight from JFK to FCO. After some scrambling we were booked on a later flight but when we arrived at FCO our luggage was nowhere to be found. Delta claimed they could not find our luggage but fortunately yesterday we had a call from FCO that our two bags were located and are to be delivered to our house on Thursday.
We are glad to be back home and Lucano’s constant purring indicates he is happy to have us here.
