Hi Luanne and everyone,

My name is Cathy and my husband is Mike. We went on our first cruise 12/4/2005 on the Carnival Conquest and like everyone else, we can't wait to go again.

I found this site before our cruise, when I was crazy for information on the Conquest and everything pretaining to my cruise. I got a lot of valuable information from all of you.

Like a lot of people I read more than I post - just can't seem to get enough information. I am really getting anzty for another cruise so I will probably be on here a lot more in the months to come. Can't afford the cruise right now, but cruisemates is Free!

I'd love to hear your thoughts about the cruise, especially the ship. Was it what you expected? Have you already written a review?

Default Hi All!!

My Name is Amy, but am usually called Baby or Brat....depending on my mood...or the people around me.

My DH is James and my DD, Katie, who is 19yo are ALL addicted to cruising!!!

I am going on my 5th cruise, my DD on her 2nd, and the DH jealous of us both because he cannot take off work to go with us since his first!!!

We live in Florida, which makes it that much HARDER not to TRY to get on a cruise every other WEEK!!! It's such a short drive to the ports......If ONLY I was independently wealthy and didn't depend on a job to continue to finance my addiction!!

We are looking at cruises for June, for my best friend's daughter's 18th birthday, are thinking about a new years cruise with a group I met on another site, and the Victory (again) for November 2008........If I get all of those booked, I will be about HALF satisfied......January to November is QUITE a long time to go without a cruise!!

I am a rambler....and for that I apologize.....I just get SO EXCITED any time I'm talking about cruising!!! Right now I'm even worse because we will be on the Sensation in 10 days!!!! 8)

I found out about Cruisemates just a couple days ago from someone on Cruisecritic, where I have been for the past year or so.......I must say that they are both very informative and have great people to chat with!!!
I've already "met" a couple great folks on here!!!!
Helps to feed my addiction even more!!!

Thanks for letting me play!!! I LOVE chatting with other addicts!!!

Hello! My name is Beth, and husband is Justin. He's posted on here a couple of times, but today is the first time I have. We first cruised on our honeymoon 8 years ago and have been addicted since. Now we have his parents addicted and will be going with them and aunt/uncle on the Carnival Glory on May 26th to the Eastern Caribbean.

Justin found the site somehow, and we have learned soooo much from it - especially the what to take, where to go, and where to stay in the departure ports. Thanks for all of the good advice!

Hi all;

My Name is Mark. I am from Sandwich Illinois. my girlfriend Kari and I just got back a few weeks ago from our first cruise. We left feb 11 from Tampa on the Carnival Miracle for the Western Carribean. I am totally hooked on cruising. The group we went with is already setting up plans for next year, and planning on this to be an annual event. We are sold on Carnival due to the "Fun Ship" motto. They live up to that big time!

I found Cruisemates through a google search on cruises.

my now wife signed us up for a timeshare pitch which came with a 3 night Bahamas cuise as the "carrot". loved the cruise even if it was a crappy old ship from "who knows" cruise line. the next year we took a RC cruise on the Majesty and on that cruise I proposed to my wife, on paradise island in the bahamas after we did the dolphin experience. the next cruise was for our honey moon and this year we went again to celebrate our 1st anniversary. last two were on conquest and destiny respectively. we are not sure when we will go again this year as we are trying to get pregnant, but if we are not, come this January.....we are goin!

Hello - I'm Linda, DH is Steve and we're from the mid-michigan area. We're going on our 4th cruise this year but the first with Carnival. We'll be on the Liberty in Oct - the "Halloween Cruise", along with 2 sets of in-laws. We have two grown kids, 6 grandkids, and a black lab, Dakota. Found CruiseMates on a re-direct from another site while looking for information on the ship we'll be on this year.

Hello Linda;

Check out the Reader reviews on the Ship reviews tab. If you have not done this already you can click on cruise lines, then a particular ship. There is a lot of info good or bad that will give you a feel for the ship you will be sailing on, and what the trends for good times on board will be.

Hello everyone. I go by Seadog2. DW and I have been on 19 cruises (I think, I lose count) with or 20th in Sept. Well I guess you can say I'm addicted too. Sounds like a 12 step is needed. Enjoy.
