A lot of Boardingarea is gushing about the Star MegaDO 4 right now. I don’t blame anyone for gushing about it because it sounds like a fantastic time. I really want to go, but other demands are preventing me from participating. Don’t get me wrong, a charter flight hanging out with my fellow frequent flier junkies sounds like a grand time…seriously. Flying across the pond, and back again….. getting behind the scenes VIP tours of airline operations and who knows what else really is my idea of a good time.

That said, I’m burning the majority of my time off on another trip to Europe, an inaugural cruise aboard Celebrity Reflection, from Venice to Barcelona. Check this out:

I’ve got a really awesome cruise aboard a brand new ship to look forward to, and I’m very excited about it. That said, I really admire those of you that get to play on the Star MegaoDO 4. I’m really hoping I can join you for # 5!!! I’ll be passing through Frankfurt on my way home from Barcelona on November 21, 2012, aboard Lufthansa. I hope my fellow flying enthusiasts will clear a path for me through Frankfurt! And I’ll look forward to joining you for the next MegaDO! Here’s to you, and another Oneworld MegaDO too!
