Mara... I don't even get to go on all these cruises, though I would certainly love to!!
Aside from writing feature articles and reviews for CruiseMates, it's my "job" (and pleasure) to research and put together the best packages and prices I can for the CruiseMates Group Cruise program. And as much fun as I have with it, alot of work goes into it!
If you ever decide to join one I'm sure you'll find out how much fun they are, and just how much work the hosts put in to make them so!
