Hello, I'm Ken, and the lovely Mrs. Jones is Vita. We've been cruising since the 70's, and have well over 100 cruises under our belts. We cruise all lines, and currently have four cruises booked for '07, of which three are aboard Carnival. We don't care what ports are visited,,,,just get us aboard the ship.

Ken

Hi.. My name is Sandy and DH is Dennis. We live in Sun City AZ and are retired. Cruising is wonderful, just booked our 6th cruise to Alaska on the Spirit. All of our cruises have been on Carnival. We have a wonderful PVP at Carnival and so far have been very pleased with Carnival. We also love RVing so between cruising and RVing we are not home much!!

Hello, I am Laura. I am an older single lady. I live in NH's Lakes Region. I started cruising in the 80's on Carnivals Festivale. From then on I was "hooked". I currently have 2 more cruises booked. February 25th I sail on Carnival Pride from Long Beach.. On the 29th of September I will sail from Ft. Lauderdale on Carnival Liberty. I am looking forward to both cruises.

Laura

Our first cruise was 2 yrs ago this coming July to Alaska aboard the Spirit. AWESOME vacation and will be repeated in a few years.

Our next cruise will be over Spring Break on the Conquest. The kids are SOoooo excited (we are too).

Greetings to all!

I am Sara. I live in PA. My 13 yo son and I enjoyed our first cruise on Fascination in August, 2006. We had an awesome time and immediately booked our next cruise when we got home. We are going to sail on the Sensation in August, 2007.

I think Carnival is affordable and fun! IMO, "Life is what you make of it." I could have a blast in a brown paper bag! We couldn't have had a better time on our first cruise and we are really looking forward to our next one!!

Happy New Year!

Sara in PA

Hi everyone, my husband and I will be cruising on the Liberty on Jan. 14, 2007. First cruise for us. All of you experienced and non-experienced cruisers have been awesome with all of you're helpful tips in the pre-cruise excitement buildup for us. Thank-you to all from the Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada. Jan. 14 - Doc-Dancing - Yes!

Hi, all those new to CruiseMates! Welcome aboard. I'm Darlene and like the rest of you, I'm addicted to cruises. First cruise was in 1983, and then we had a 20 year gap. Finances and time were an issue. Finances is still an issue sometimes, but we now have more time!

I recently retired and my DH of 33 years will retire in 2007. We have one son, who is married, and we have one precious granbaby! We live just south of Houston, so when taking a cruise is not an option, we take a short drive to Galveston and bid the lucky cruisers a cheery Bon Voyage. Even if I can't be on the ships, I still love seeing them and never seem to tire of being on the water.

Hi - I'm Cheryl and DH is Joey. I went on my first cruise for my senior trip and didn't cruise again until kids were grown -- time off to raise them (and $$$ issues that go along with them..lol) We have only cruised carnival and my rule is --- why ruin a good thing. Have had nothing but fun on Carnival and plan to continue with them. Currently have 2 cruises booked and would book more if I could!! Live in Louisiana - 2 children. And I love cruisemates!!!!!!!!! But not as much as I love looking out of our balcony at NOTHING but the blue water.

Hi..my name is Linda and we are addicted to cruising.

We started cruising as a family of four in 1998 and just stepped off our 15th cruise last week.

Prior to marriage, there is another 9 under our collective belts starting in 1982.

Our family of four usually take 2 - 3 a year. But the oldest is now in college and misses out some times due to scheduling conflicts.

Hi There....I am soooo addicted....This will be the 4th cruise for Doug & myself...
Denise...I love it....Daffy???
We have one Lucy, our over grown pup, and Misty the aged kitty. Oh yeah...3 grandkids, who live next door with my daughter. We are all in central Florida half way between Tampa/Cocoa.

My favorite: the balcony after a long hot day and just before dinner, with your honey and a cool fufu drink....aahhhhhh

Laura, I think we are on the same cruise for 9/29 Liberty This is going to be a long long wait...
