Meeting friends from sea....

and thinking about another Mah Jongg at Sea!

On Friday Barbara and I met with Rita and Donna two new friends from Arizona that we met for the first time on our cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Copenhagen in April earlier this year.

They were in NYC for the Food Show and we connected with them to visit the 9/11 Museum.  It was a solemn experience but not one not to be missed if you're in NYC or visiting here.

We had lunch after and talked about taking another cruise to sightsee and play Mah Jongg.

Transatlantic cruises are the best for that.... lots of  'sea days' for  MJ and stops along the way for sightseeing.   If you haven't read about our wonderful mah jongg at sea last spring here.  On our 17 day cruise we played with 25 different players on our ship...every morning and afternoon on 'sea days'.

Here's the new cruise we're looking at:

This cruise leaves from Rome on October 26, 2017.  (Yes that's next October...lots of time to plan)
It arrives in Fort Lauderdale on Nov.8, 2017.  It's a 13 day cruise with 2 stops in Spain and 1 in Madeira before crossing to Florida.

It is a Holland America cruise again.  They were so accommodating on our last cruise....reserving a card room for our MJ play every day we were at sea.  They also provided coffee, tea and pastries in the room each day....a nice touch.

If you would like to join our email list to be kept informed about this cruise, send an email to me (Susan) at: and put CRUISE in the subject line.  We'll keep you posted as plans go forward!
