Cruise Update, Book Information, "Romance is..."
People who got off at both places (we didn't) had nothing but awful experiences, especially at the DR. No shops, lots of storm ravaged buildings and beggars. Beach? Food was terrible (supplied by ship) and some "features" of the beach weren't operational.
Our compensation? 30% off another cruise, $100 onboard credit, all photos free (we had two taken), and some discounts at the beach (some type of water slide). We wrote a letter, but they won't offer more. So, we'll use the 30% and NEVER CRUISE WITH THEM AGAIN after that. SUGGESTION: Avoid Norwegian cruises.
Extra note: They never explained WHY they didn't helicopter in the broken part but waited until the the 5th day (at the beach) to get the part. The part broke on day 2 or 3.
Nonfiction book: "Guilty Survivor - Memoirs of Tamerla Kendall". I'm trying my hardest to promo this. Thanks to my friends at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/romancebooksrus, I'm finding places to do promo and get reviews and interviews. My publisher is trying very hard to do this and has sent requests to lots of sites. Keep your fingers crossed!
Enjoy March...Spring is coming!
