Default Newbie poster here

Hello everybody! Greetings from central Texas. I just stumbled on to this site the other day. It looks like a lot of good info and a lot of fun people here. I wish I had found it a few years ago! Anyhow, just wanted to say hi and I think this is going to be really bad for my wallet!

Bob

I know exactly what you mean about your wallet hurting. All I am waiting for is my BF to finish that degree up so we can go on the cruise mates group cruises.

I went on my first cruise a couple weeks ago and we already have another one planned for 9 months from now during Christmas break. Carla

Welcome Bob. I found this site a few years ago - but lurked around for a while before I stated posting. We got hooked on cruising about 15 years ago. We cruise pretty well every year - but we still look forward with great expectations to our next sailing

Hey Bob, welcome home. There are many fellow TEXANS on here, so you can't go wrong .

I have a Conquest cruise booked for Haloween. My daughter turns 21 so I thought this would be a good way to celebrate. This will be my 3rd cruise in as many years. I got hooked on my 1st. I'll be taking my daughter and her friend, I think those two girls are going to wear me out!

welcome aboard wayward bob - good screen name, better than "overboard bob" - yep this site is bad for your wallet; however, there are some money saving tips spread here and there.

Welcome Bob. I just found this recently also, and am really enjoying the people, and info. I wish I found this place before I went on my first cruise last month. It would have helped learning the ropes before hand.

I can't wait for the next cruise armed with info from here. 8)
