Since my blog responses still don't show up I'll have to defeat the purpose of the blog and respond here. Listening IB?????????
I've enjoyed cruising with the grandkids and the "adult kids". It's a fun, family vacation but not one I want to do all the time.
There is nothing I love more than Betty and I exploring the world on our own and not worrying about someone else or having to come to a compromise with others on what we are going to do. Many people do not want to go to out of the way places or eat in small, local restaurants with strange foods or strike up a conversation with locals.
When we cruise with the "kids" we consider it their vacation and take a back seat when it comes to what we want to do. It is fun to see them enjoying themselves and we usually do too. But we enjoy it even more when we do our own thing.
