Nushnakka - Let's try to get together. It's fun getting know people on board. I'm going with a good friend of mine from work . We are 39 & 43. Our husbands are not going with us. They don't like to travel as much as we do. I've been on 4 other cruises in the past. My friend has been on 3 other cruises. Cruising is a lot of fun. I've been doing a lot of research on the internet along with getting some opinions off of message boards. I think we've got our cruise pretty much planned out.
