Showcat, what is your "take" on the CFL one you did in April? I have one scheduled next Sunday with them. The message board sure has a different "flavor" to it than the singlescruise.com ones on Carnival. Hey I am an older guy 56, so input on the age thing on the various things is important. Some people who are 50 act like my mother when she was in her 80s so in spite of the chiche "age is just a number" it can be important for the ambience of a cruise. I like to tell people in the 30s.........."hey I FEEL like I am 35, but then I didn't feel so good then, but I DO look a little worse than I did then"
