    Re: First Trip - What to expect!

    Good luck CD, make sure and keep here/your blog as updated as poss, especially when on Aurora as i'll be on the day you get off! Sunny Acapulco and all that.

    Make sure Kev behaves himself, if that is possible.

      KD behaving himself? Surely not! Haha.

      Will do, as long as I actually get there! In Dublin at the minute praying that my flight to Gatwick goes tomorrow, if not I'm a bit stuck since there's no other flights to Gatwick before I'm meant to be leaving for Barbados! Eeeep!

          More likely I'd be put on the next day's flight to St Lucia to catch it there. But I'm being optimistic - it will work dammit!

            Worst case if you miss it, they will just fly you from Barbados to the next port of call - there are flights between the islands you know :-p

                Do they have an SG2/SG1B/SG1A structure at Carnival? I had thought it was solely an RFA thing.

                  The only title I heard of was SG1A which they mentioned during our induction slideshow and onboard tour. I'm sure someone ele can confirm - if not I'll tell you next week

                    The amount of people joining this ship on the 9th is unreal. It's gonna be one major turnaround

                            Is your company paying for it?

                              No they only pay the night before joining, but I'm travelling from Ireland instead of from home in the UK, so safer to head straight for Southampton a day earlier since there's more snow forecast in Dublin.
