Default Who has made new friends on cruises and now cruise with the

My husband and I met two wonderful guys on our first cruise and now we cruise with them every year. We even visit them at their home since they now live in our state.

Has anyone else out there met new people and now make a point of having reunion cruises or get togethers?

Gary and I have been very fortunate to have made some great friendships with the folks here at Cruisemates and with others we have cruised with. We've even done some land trips to meet up with our cruising friends. These folks have a very special place in our hearts.

We've met and become friends with MANY cruisemates! It really is one of the most wonderful things about cruising. In most cases everyone is there relaxed, and ready to enjoy so no one is "stressed".

The CruiseMates group cruises have been superb in that regard as well. There's now quite a few people we've met on the CruiseMates group cruises, who we get to cruise with over and over again. Think there's a few who've done 8 or 10 CM group cruises now.

I can also agree with both, Marylou and Kuki, have met them both and cruised with them and a whole bunch of Cruisemates. Its a wonderful way to cruise and plan cruises. Be sure to check out all the Cruisemates Group cruises:

You bet!!!!!

I have cruised with Kuki, Donna, and Mary Lou and many others who post here and I am privileged to call them friends.

BTW: I met them right here on Cruisemates.

The negative side is that they now know that you can meet seedy characters, like me on the Internet. <VBG>

Take care,
