Well, I'm not going on a cruise for awhile yet, but right now I am reading "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham. (thanks Sue!). Just started it, and so far I really like it, it has very tongue-in-cheek humour about the commercialism of Christmas and how we all follow like sheep. The best part is the plot: empty-nester couple decide to "skip" Christmas this year in order to go on a 10 day Caribbean Cruise! Not a bad idea!
