I started cruiing in 1982 when I got a job aboard Royal Viking Line as a stage manager. My very first cruise was a 10 days at sea journey from Los Angeles to Tahiti. (you can read the full story here... <http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/pauley1.html>)
I sailed with RVL for about 8 months before leaving cruising for about 10 years. I then returned to working for cruise lines in 1992 accepting a job as stage manager for NCL on the Norway and then for Holland America on the Westerdam and the Statendam. Once I met Anne I started cruising a lot more often. I have sailed on...
