Exellent blog entry, looks like you are having a great time.
To those reading, the import thing about cruising is not the storms. Those, and associated breakdowns and discomfort are just the price you pay to get to visit interesting places. Often the most interesting places, like the Falklands, have the highest 'admission' prices.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
