What a wonderful story .... you are sooooo right. There are alot of people in this world you only dream of cruising under ANY conditions and the most of them may never get to do it for one reason or anyother. Life is so short and is filled with imperfections on a daily basis. You have to find the good and the beauty in all situations. I would hate to think that I lived my life complaining and always look for the negatives. I want to enjoy life everyday and be grateful that I was given the opportunities that I was. I love your story and it sounds like there were some issues with Premier (but now we all know why). Thanks for sharing and good luck with your cruising experiences in the future!
