Hi Nancy. I'm a SWM52, and I live in central Florida (the cruise capital of the WORLD!).
I've been on 22 cruises in the last ten years, including twice on Windstar ( my all-time
favorite!) I've organized group cruises for as many as 53 people, my most recent cruise was w/ Royal Caribbean in April '05 which I organized for my mother, three sisters & six brothers & all their kids. (we had a blast!) Most of my cruises, however, have been with a single cruisemate, usually first-timers, age 20 to 80. I've been most everywhere in the Caribbean, but I'm always looking for new places. I love introducing people to cruising, and I know all the tricks to minimizing hassles and maximizing the whole cruise experience for those who sail with me.
I love cruising so much that I went to school & became a licensed travel agent (though I've never actually worked as a TA) just to learn more about the cruise industry.
Why Captain Jim? Because I am a USCG licensed Captain (really!) and I'd rather be at sea any day than stuck on shore, and modern cruise ships are THE way to go.
Right now the best itinerary I see is Princess out of Ft Lauderdale. Their 7,10 and 14 day cruises have several ports-of-call that look exciting.. If you're interested & wanna have the time of your life - contact me and let's talk about it. The ONE THING I've learned about cruising is that it's not the ship or where you're going- it's who you're with that makes all the difference.
