Default Do you ever?

As you get close to you cruise, do you ever stop and think what you will be doing in a few weeks and a smile comes to your face? I know i do, out of the blue a thought will pop in to my head, like enjoying a dessert at dinner...along those lines.

I'm doing it right about now!
I watched the Conquest leave yesterday from the webcam and smiled and thought, "Next time I see her, I will be getting on board!"

ABSOLUTELY! The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I will be aboard the Glory this time next week, and all week this week we'll look at each other and say,,,,next week this time we'll be sitting at the dinner table,,,or at the casino,,,,or in the showroom or whatever. Also,,,,I wonder who's in our cabin this week? It's lots of fun, and just extends the wonder cruise experience.
See you aboard,
Ken

I start getting those "smiles" from the time I book! By the time I sail, only other cruisers can stand to be around me, because they understand!

I just hope that when my husband and me get back from our September cruise that he asks the question "when are we going again!" Otherwise, I'll be cruising with girlfriends/friends forever... Is that a bad thing - tee hee!!

cana57,

We'll be getting off the Fantasy the day you'll be getting on it.
Have a wonderful cruise and please write a review when you get back. I would love to hear about your trip!!

Mary,

Please be sure to leave me with blue skies when you disembark and I wish you blue skies while you're traveling. I'll definitely write about the trip and post some pics. I couldn't find any fantasy cruise pics...

What excursions are doing. We're snorkeling and swimming with the sting rays and diving for pearls. My husband got a hoot out of the description of that one so we're going to do it....

Teri

Teri,

We haven't decided on any excursions, yet, but we do plan to do some snorkeling. I'll write a review when I get back. It won't be right away, though, because we are going on the Glory the day we get off the Fantasy. We live in Texas and are retired, so we decided to do a back to back because it may be the only time we cruise out of Florida. We are very excited!!!!

I'm sure you and your husband will have a great time, and that he will want to go on many, many more cruises!!

Mary

I'm getting my nails done on Thursday, and I started thinking that the NEXT time I get them done it will be my pre-cruise fill & pedicure! That reminds me, I want to go to the beauty supply store to check out nail colors... off I go!

How lucky you are and how jealous I am - where is the Glory going? Next year I'll try a bigger ship!
