I used to watch the Love Boat but I could not take a cruise in those days.
I already knew about sailing since I had crossed the Atlantic and the Pacific.
When my Wife and I got married in 1998 we did a honeymoon cruise on the Celebrity Century.
Of course we loved it and have cruise 16 times since then.
