At least Santorini was our last stop. We got stuck on top of the Island with no way down. We took the donkeys up the mountain and then down we had to take the cable car. By the time we it was our turn it broke and there was no way down the mountain untill it was fixed. the donkey trail was to steep and dark to walk down and covered with donkey poop. No busses to pick us up and so we had to wait till the fixed the cable car. They actually had to get out the manual for it. then they sent for a technician, he just sat there scratching his head. I thought we would have to spend the night there. After several hours standing in the cold they finally got it fixed. They had to hold the ship for us cause there were a 142 of us plus 2 crew members. So we got some excitement! The rest of the trip was awesome inspite of losing my husbands luggage for 4 days. We had a blast! Made lots of friends!

Marion, you are braver than I am. Let me tell ya if the tech was scratching head trying to figure out cable car, that would of been clue enough for me to dodge the land mines and walk down the trail LOL. I'm a big chicken when it comes to my feet being off solid ground. No cruises for me :) The kids have all they can do to get me on plane LOL. I'm so glad you made it home safely, now lets see those pictures from the cruise and the view from the cable car.

Marion, we're so glad your home safely! This is so terrible. You know if that had happened while you were gone, WE WOULD ALL WOULD HAVE BEEN A MESS! We've had so much sadness here lately, worrying about you would have been another heart break for us.

That You for coming home safely to us!!!! :)

Thanks guys! It is just kind of weird, but I feel a real sense of loss. Don't really know why.... Strange....:confused: I think of it as MY ship.

Wow Marion, that would be a wierd feeling. The picture of the ship was in our paper here. you were so lucky you were on it last week. I would definately add that picture to your scrapbook! That doesn't happen every day (Thank goodness)

As for you other experience, we had a similar one on one of our trips to the Carribean. We were getting ready to leave and we had a taxi ride to the airport included in our trip. The driver was late getting to the hotel. When he got there, he pulled out a tool kit. Opened the hood and started working on the car. We waited for a while, and what ever the problem was, he wasn't getting it fixed. I was starting to have coniptions and I looked at my hubby and he said "do you want me to get another taxi? And I said "Well, I don't want to miss the plane and even if he gets that cab working, I don't think I want to trust it. We might end up getting stranded half way to the airport". The driver wasn't happy and said "Well don't expect your money to be refunded" At that point, I didn't care. I just wanted to get to the airport. But at least we weren't stranded like you were. Glad you made it back safe and sound!

I would include the story of the ship sinking at the end of your book.... You were on it's last voyage or pretty darn close.... That is a real story to end with.
