I was 28, I was single; I was not looking forward to the annual co-worker invitation to Thanksgiving dinner with their family; I HATE TURKEY. So, I contacted my last minute travel club to see about a cruise. I was able to get an inside cabin on the Britannis over Thanksgiving week; instant excuse to turn down Thanksgiving invitations.

I flew to Montego Bay to join the ship. I was put at a table for eight all of us single; all EXCEPT me canuck. I had a fantastic time. Sailed to Aruba, Cartagena, San Blas Islands, and Panama. Thanksgiving day was actually French night so I didn't have to eat turkey. I found out at end of cruise that all the canucks were staying on for another week at a resort in Montego Bay; I was tempted to call the boss and ask for another week off. Instead, I spent the day at the resort until my flight left and ended up booking the same resort for my 30th birthday two years later.

How can you forget your first cruise.

After a year of being nagged by my DW and DD I finally consented to go just to shut them up. That was in 1997 and we sailed on the Monarch of The Seas. I fell in love with cruising when we walked out of the terminal onto the pier where the ship was docked. That was in San Juan. I fell in love before we even boarded the ship. I looked and saw the ship and it was all over for me or should I say it all started for me. My wife booked that cruise and I've booked all of them since (30). Thank goodness there is no 12 step program for cruising.
