Re: Carnival-- again?!
One of the old James Bond stories had a great line, 'once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action'. If it happens again would make you wonder about their preventative maintenance programs.
BTW, my wife likes cruises and also suggested we do a circumnavigation. They are quite different experiences. It would be interesting to take a cruise on one of the really fancy ships like Seabourn, but not happening at those prices.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
