Default Allure of the Sea

Take a look at this clip of the Allure of the Sea passing The Big Belt bridge that is a bridge between Sweden and Denmark. It's rather amazing that such a big ship can pass under that bridge.

That is amazing. Better hope there isnt a big swell just about when they get under the bridge. Bet the captains chair has some suction holes in it too.

Our local news in Florida said the clearance was about 20-inches (about 0.5 meters).
Wow!
We're sailing on the sister ship, the Oasis, on December 4th.

Tina,
Our cruise goes to Nassau, St. Thomas and Sint Maarten.
My wife loves to shop in St. Martin for tablecloths and linens.
I get to purchase a bottle or two of premium liquor at lower prices than Aruba.
Everyone's happy.
And cruising means that someone else waits on you for 7 days, 7 nights.
I think this is our 14th cruise...6 or 7 on Royal Caribbean.

John,
I wish we could go on a cruis. Sadly my husband gets so seasick that it's not possible for us. He can't even use the floats that we can borrow at our hotel in Aruba without getting seasick. I feel lucky for our upcomming trip to Aruba nr 7. And in june next year we will travel to Tunisia visiting a friend of ours that lives there. Of course we have trip nr 8 to Aruba planed....hiihiihii

Tina,
Did he ever try a product like Bonine? It's non-prescription, non-drowsy formula.
(Maybe I'm wrong to presume that it is sold internationally)
My wife was afraid of cruising until we started in 2003 (after moving to Florida).
I realize the relative ease of cruising from Florida...we live about 1 hour north of Port Canaveral, a few more hours to Fort Lauderdale and Miami. We frequently go with local groups who provide transport to the ports...not requiring a flight.
Enjoy your next visit to Aruba. September was very rainy for us...worst in 20 years. Hope things improve.

Tina,
I wander from the topic.
I visited Stockholm way back in 1971...so you know I am much older.
We have read and enjoyed the Larsson books in English (of course).
Just curiousity, but I was wondering about pronouncing things like place names and street names in English. I am recently involved with a volunteer effort in Florida that produces digital recordings for the blind. It would be a supreme challenge to read and record "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" for an English audience. It may not happen in the near future, but I'm still wondering about Swedish-English pronunciation. Any websites?

We have read the 3 books in English and seen the first movie with English subtitles. Enjoyed all. Hope to see the second Swedish movie this weekend!
