Mr. & Mrs Kuki from Calgary, Alberta Canada. 9 Carnival cruises so far... with my next being the Cruisemates Group Cruise for Thanksgiving!
http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/...ictory2004.cfm--- and we'd be delighted to see ALL you you join us!

Hello,
This is a good idea! I am Mary Jo from Annapolis, Maryland. We have done 3 cruises but the last carnival cruise we took was on the Mardi Gras so that tells you how long ago it was. We are going on the Paradise on 8/1 and I just can't wait!!!!!!

Uh oh...Calgary, eh?
I just have to give a quick "GO Sharks GO" since we will now we playing the Flames in the Conference Finals

I am Carey from Colorado, I'm in my mid-twenties, well almost...okay, I'm 23. I will be going on my first cruise to beautiful New England/Canada on October 1st leaving from New York City. I am quite well traveled, but have never been on a cruise and am thinking I might have a slight addiction already!
I am a chronic planner as many of you probably already know and will most likely continue to ask silly questions as I get closer and closer to my cruise.

Do you think its possible to just sleep for 150 days until I am ready to go??

Hello from Texas (Bandera to be exact). I took my first cruise in January of this year; however, I think I was addicted long before I ever went aboard. I will be taking my first Carnival cruise on Jan. 2, 05 (Elation). This board is pretty much what keeps me sane. The people and information are great!

Hi all !!!!!!!! I'm Aileen from Cleveland. That's Ohio
Been on 3 Carnival cruises & 1 on RCCL. Going on our 5th cruise this Sept. (5th)
on the Destiny. Can't wait. We have done the bahamas bit and that is old already & Eastern too. So we are trying Southern this time. Cant wait. We really like Carnival the best. Went on the Glory last August & were in a Penthouse suite. WOW WOW WOW !!!!
That was great.
These boards are addicting. I even have them in my "favorites" at work. So, play & no work i guess.

Hey All,
First time cruiser - can't wait. We're sailing the Triumph on June 26. They'll be four of us - two college roomates (both 23) and Mom and Dad. Would love to find others er'll be travelling with. Haven't started counting the days yet - trying to restrain myself, but it is getting harder and harder.

Hello Everyone!

I'm Denise from Mentor, Ohio. We (that would be Michael and I) are going on our first cruise in September. As some of you might know it's our honeymoon. We are flying down early because my brother lives in Tampa. Lucky us!!

Great idea!

My name is Stacy (33) and my husband is Brad (40). We are from Chandler, Arizona and looking forward to our Destiny cruise on June 13th. We've been on 2 other cruises in the past, the first was our Honeymoon cruise on the Destiny in '98 and the second was the Elation in '99 (while pregnant and LOTS of morning sickness!). Both of these were Western Caribbean so I am SOOOOOOOOO ready to change venues! Plus, we'll have my daughter with us on this cruise and are really excited for her to get to see and do all the things that we're planning. CAN'T WAIT!!!!

By the way, I too am a "planaholic". I research EVERYTHING and am also quite addicted to this board as well. So much so that I still was on it at 2am this morning.....yes, people were still posting at this time!

Well, I guess I should stop now and let my family know that I am actually up and out of bed....wink, wink. :o)

Hi,

Melissa from Massachusetts. First cruise was on the Inspiration in February 2003, then the Triumph in December 2003, and now we are scheduled on the Miracle February 13, 2005. We took the kids with us on the Christmas cruise. Both February cruises are anniversary/birthday cruises.

However, I just noticed that I haven't a cruise planned for 2004. Something seems amiss. May have to get planning something for the fall. Hmmmmm..................

Welcome newcomers. You have found the best cruise site on the web. And I have some advice for you. Stay away from Sensation. She is my ship!

My wife, Chris, and I took our first cruise aboard her in February '03. Sensation and I had a mutual love affair. My wife was completely complicit and understanding.
Sure--Sensation paints herself like a harlot and jumps from berth to berth but we remain committed to each other.

It doesn't matter that I cruised on another company's ship last September; nor that I took a cruise aboard her sister, Inspiration from her own home berth about 2 months ago, the day after the last time I saw her. I am pleased to say she has forgiven me and that in 11 months, Chris and I will board her again. Sensation and I are going to be reconciled and we don't need any interlopers to distract us. So stay away from my ship
--unless you're ready to enjoy her as much as I did!

One more thing: Yes, I'm nuts!


I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

Steve--cuckoo for cruising...cuckoo for cruising...cuckoo for cruising!



Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!
