    Wonderful! May you both be blessed with fair seas, clear skies and wonderful sunsets. Naturally, being the Serenissima, I know the food and the service will be outstanding!

    Enjoy your cruise, Lady C!

    Hello everyone! If you saw my last post in the Serenissima thread you might just possibly have guessed where I am!
    Greetings from Serenissima!!!!! I’ am sitting out on the aft deck and we are shortly leaving Calvi, Corsica.
    D had wanted to have a holiday (possibly before a likely change in his medication which might make getting away for a couple of weeks more difficult), and even said he’’ would pay for me. I wonder what you’ would have chosen? I had thought about Viking Sea Cruises, but I decided that with D I needed something where I didn’’t have to plan activities and was generally more organised. Then as a repeat passenger I got an offer of a remaining cabin on a Serenissima cruise, and the dates fitted in. Couldn’t resist!

    Welcome back and welcome home, Lady C!

    I'm in Norway for just a few days myself, and will be commuting quite frequently between Norway and Thailand the next half a year, perhaps the next year.

    I'm back! (Just a bit bogged down with the usual issues here just now.)

    So many memories - so many photos!
    Glad such a lot of you were able to follow the trip in real time on FB - I was surprised I did so well with the wi-fi.
    VERY special thanks to Bengt for the WONDERFUL capture of the ship in the locks at Panama that he posted on Serenissima’'s thread

    Even if the ship may not pop up on Marine Traffic etc.ALL the way down the Pacific coast (and just to confuse you we go up into Mexico before heading in the Panama direction), you will for sure see SERENISSIMA on AIS awaiting her turn to enter the Canal! Remember Panama time is UTC -5 hours.

    Enjoy your trip so much, Cecilia. Will make a note on my pc desktop for 7. February so I remember it. I guess you're all on AIS, so I can find the ship.

    I am actually away again already, and am in London. Tomorrow, Sunday, I join the group travelling to Guatemala, and on Monday evening we board SERENISSIMA at Puerto Quetzal. There will be 86 of us, plus ten staff among which the Assistant Expedition Leader is Kristine Hannon who contributed so much to this forum at the time when we were so concerned about the future of HARALD JARL / ANDREA. Those of you who enjoy webcam-watching might want to make a note in your diary for Tuesday 7th February when we make a daytime transit of the Panama Canal!

    Thank you - and how happy it makes me to see you have written "I KNOW" (in such big letters!).
    I could never have imagined before I went how the 5th December would unfold into such an extraordinary, moving and profound experience.

    A very merry Christmas to you too, and welcome home to grey, cold and wet Scotland!

    In Trondheim today, snow is falling, but temepratures are raising and a storm is on the way too.

    Even though I KNOW your trip to Thailand was amazing, I still hope it was even better than you wanted it to be before you left.

    I will be leaving for Thailand soon too... as always, I can't wait to plant myself in the Kingdom again.

    I'm back in cold wet windy Scotland. As I'll be at D's over the holiday period, I've only just got a moment to post a seasonal greeting in the appropriate thread before braving the storm to buy a turkey, mince pies, cake and suchlike. No time for home baking this year, but I should certainly be able to manage a tasty Thai recipe for the turkey left-overs!
