Tomorrow Can't Come Soon Enough

Last minute touches are getting done, packing room is a mess.

Friends have arranged a limo for pick up and we will be picked up around noonish and should be at the pier by one!

The Island has been docked in Vancouver at Canada Place for the past two days, which is surprising and hate to think of the costs of that. I imagine that she is getting some last minute things done before we board tomorrow. I wouldn't be surprised if there are some workers on board for our voyage to San Francisco doing some last minute items.

We finally got our cabin assignment. B716 a BD category. We booked an obsturcted view for the two day portion and a BG obstructed balcony for the 15 day leg, so we are happy that we got a BD and in the same cabin for both legs.

Weather forecast is cloudy with showers with a 40% chance, but I refuse to put a damper on the festivities.

We've arranged to meet some of our Cruise Critic friends on Tuesday at 12;30 and then have lunch together.

Well off to do more packing and pick up those last minute items.

Bon voyage everyone


  1. We're going on Island Princess April 2011 from Florida to SF via Panama Canal. Glad I found your blog.

    Besides MUTS, what else is new on this ship? Any tips for us?

    I believe you have been to Panama Canal via cruising before. What were some hi lites and lo lites?

    Thanks for any advice.
    Isn't the internet wonderful?
