Yes, everyone that I have invited so far have never cruised before and the reason behind my idea is that it has been 12 years since I have cruised. One 3-day cruise (age 29) was just a friend and the second (age 32) was a nice sized group (4 day) and I had so much fun with the larger group that I wanted to replicate that experience and (okay, this is the selfish part) get my husband excited about cruising.
Trip, the cocktail party is a GREAT idea, thank you! Trip & Pete, I have been working with a travel agent and I just didn't think to get her involved...but, that makes perfect sense since it will help her business too!
I am looking at a Western Caribbean Cruise on RCCL out of New Orleans in 1/2014 and a second cruise to Alaska on Celebrity in 2015.
Thank you so much for the ideas! I'M SO EXCITED http://www.cruisemates.com/forum/ima...icon_smile.gif
