|a special chapter for a special group, the so-called Pineapple- Express, with roundabout 50 persons, who have met in a Roll-Call on an american cruiseboard for more than half a year- even for some of them more than a year. We have met almost daily on the board, talked about different things, tried to manage some slight problems together as a community, and planned activities.
We had an easel on deck 8 close to the elevators with our daily activities and pictures from the last day. We organized several activities like a dinner on the evening before our cruise, first meeting at the poolbar before sailaway, the Meet&Mingle organized by RCCL, joined by the cruise- director and hotel- director to come along and say hello to ourselves.
Once we had lunch together in the Portofino, exclusively opened for our group, a minigolf tournament men against women, a tour of the cabins to visit all cabin types, starting with an inside, several types of balcony cabins up to a Junior Suite and even a Grand Suite. We had so much fun and it was really interesting. We had a gift-exchange with typical gifts from the state we came from, a come- together- Party in the Schooner-Bar, a breakfast with more than 30 people in the dining room at the end of the cruise and a special Galley-Tour.
It was exciting to see, how people from USA, Canada, Scotland and Germany, met for the first time and had such a good time together. I´m really sorry to say that we will likely not see most of them again, but who knows what life will bring.
