Thanks for responding Paul
This is actually my first cruise, and I am more of an explore-on-your-own-meet-the-locals, find the off-the-beaten-track kind of travel. My mom convinced me to go on this cruise and I'm excited but I am looking forward to doing my own thing. She swears that I will want to book another cruise before we even get back. I'll have a map and my route and destinations all planned out but I've found that sometimes, the best times occur when you have gotten off track and maybe even lost your way. The only thing that I am nervous about is my Mom's reaction if we do not make it back to the ship in time.
