2013 has come to a close. I think as each year ends and a new year begins we all look back at what we’ve done, and forward to what we are going to do.

So this week’s blog is about me looking back. I’ve been writing for Cruisemates for near 14 years, and I’ve certainly enjoyed doing so. I’ve had the opportunity to experience, do, and write, about some very interesting and unique things.

Over those years, while writing about those experiences and writing an article every week, I well understand that some may have been good, and some not so good. I’m very proud of the good ones 🙂

Now, looking back, I’d like to share some of my favourites. They are not necessarily my best written or favourite articles, but they are my favourite experiences.

If you haven’t seen and read them previously, or even if you have, I hope you’ll read them here, and I hope they put a smile on your face. They did mine.

This first one is my all time favourite. I got to “work” for a day on Celebrity Cruise Line, shortly after they introduced butler service. I can’t say enough about the fun we had, and all the laughs we had behind the scenes.

#2 on my list was when I got to write and perform a stand up comedy act for part of a late night adult comedy show on Carnival. My material may have been weak, my performance was certainly lacking, but preparing for it, and doing it were a laugh a second experience. 

Next up was when I was allowed to deal blackjack on a Princess ship. I still vividly remember the smiles and laughter of all the dealers as I displayed my ineptitude at thei jobs dealing

And lastly was this article that still reflects exactly how I felt, and still feel about cruising.
