Thanks for the article. It was an excellent cruise for a first timer like myself. Of course, it was only due to your efforts that I got there at all. My gingko biloba kicks in at odd times, don't you know. Ann was the heart of this whole experience. From the first coctail party till the final goodbye party. The cruise was more than I hoped and just what I needed. I will never vacation any other way. Since everything was already there, I didn't have to go anywhere that I didn't want to. I really liked the singles group in that we all had emailed each other long before the cruise, exchanged pictures and established beginning friendships before we ever met. Now that the cruise is over, I am already planning to go on the Dec 5 cruise. Many of us are still emailing each other and the jokes are flying. A very good experience and lots of long lasting smiles to keep. Wardog sends.
