Default reality check

been reading a lot of anxiety driven posts from people who are now freaked out over reading poor reviews...

been reading a lot of hysterical posts from people who had the most miserable time in their lives and they want to do their service to the public and warn everyone...

Here's a reality check.


How arrogant we all are to complain in our decadence.

Life truly is what you make of it. Be glad and thankful for it.

I know I am thanking the Lord every day for his abundance in my life and that I have the great fortune to be able to go on my first cruise with my husband to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I pray that I am surrounded with like-minded people on the Conquest.

Reviews are Opinions! What upsets one person (and they exagerate it) may not be a big deal to the next person. If you read several reviews of the same ship that are all bad then I'd worry. Not if you read one here and there.

Agrees with Khrysta ...

And if it is your first cruise, Conquest is gonna knock your socks off

Hubby and I chose the Conquest for our first cruise, a 20th anniversary...and now we're hooked !

Happy cruising and congratulations on the anniversary!

Amen and Amen, Khrysta !!

My wife and I have waited 25 years for our first cruise THIS Weekend on GLORY !!

We are so excited, the worst conditions onboard that ship would seem like HEAVEN to the third world countries ... and dare we complain over little stuff!!!

God Bless

I understand the concept of opinions... but I think that with giving one's opinion comes some amount of responsibility (ie. the intent).

I was hoping perhaps those who are miserable because of opinions might have their eyes opened a little and find a little more joy in life.

Somebody once said "Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff".

If the cabin steward doesn't fill my ice tub . . . . I don't care!
If the ship is an ugly green . . . I don't care!
If embarkation is crazy . . . I don't care!

Just get me on the ship and hand me a Fun Ship Special!
