We were on hand to cheer for our fellow co-worker Eltahir “Captain Slow” Eltahir, at the Dulles Day Festival during the Pizza Eating Contest sponsored by Famous Famiglia. Captain Slow’s slow and steady pace was enough to earn him third place by devouring 9 large slices of pizza in ten minutes.
If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.
