In my case, it's easier than ever to go on a cruise. We can drive to several cruise ports and we can afford to cruise a few times a year. We are retired, so we have the time. However, I love this part of Florida and we have friends here, we attend many social functions, the beach is ten minutes away and we are surrounded by palm trees, so every day feels like a vacation.
We are sailing on the Oasis next year and the following year we may do a land vacation in Hawaii.
