Default Hey Y'all!!

My name is Netta and I am 48 years young. Divorced with one son, age 26.

I live in Brooklyn, NY and am a legal secretary.

I have been cruzin since 1999 and cruzin solo since 2003. I go on my next cruise on May 26 on the CCL Liberty. I am solo but rarely alone and almost never lonely!!!

Relatively new here but I like it here. Little or no fighting. None of my friends or co-workers want to talk about cruzin' 24/7 like me.

Hi,
I am Janis and my husband is Phil. I am in my late 50's and he is in his late 60's and we love cruising. We have a son and daughter-in-law who are having their first child and a 20 something daughter who is not married. People have asked if we are going to stay home more now that the grandbaby is on the way. Who knows? I am constantly looking for great deals and definitely looking for Europe or the Mediterrean.

I am Dave, my wife is Marianne. We will be taking our first cruise in 25 years this summer. It is a high school graduation present to my daughter who will going off to the University of New Hampshire next year to study Marine Biology - Go Wildcats! So its' us and several beautiful teen age girls - I'm exhausted already!

I am a Scots-American and a proud member of the Clan Buchanan - which explains the tartan icon. I WILL be wearing my kilt to the formal nights but I have the legs for it.

Yours aye,

No Luanne, Boynton Beach Florida which is about 1 hr North of the Port of Miami and 40 minutes North of Pt Everglades. Thus the reason we can cruise so much...... we don't have to pay for airfare!!!

But, I am a born/raised New Yorker (Brooklyn) that doesn't miss the cold and snow at all....


Hey, I updated my profile and it worked the 1st time I tried!!!

Hello to All!

My name is Cathy (57) and my husband is Mike (61). We finally have our second cruise booked on the Ecstasy Dec. 1st. First time was the Conquest and we were hooked. Have been silently reading the boards in envy ever since, feeding off of everyone else's cruises. This time we will be taking along our son, his wife, and 10 year old daughter, my sister and her husband, her son and his wife and daughter, and 2 other families that are just friends. Only 1 person out of all of them has ever cruised before, so this should be so much fun. I enjoy sharing the joy of cruising and can't wait to get them all hooked!!

Hello fellow cruisers! Havent been on this site for a while because of being busy at work and i fell and broke my wrist. But we are booking and paying deposit on this week Friday for a April 2008 cruise on the Glory! I am a waitress part time and 58yr old. My husband is going to be 68 this weekend. he isnt going on this cruise with me. He wants to go to Vegas. I ahve been there and done that already. Give me a cruise any day. My daughter is going to be my room mate for this cruise. There is a group of 9 of us going. My cousins and there girls... It will be like a great girls cruise. I dont know how I will wait that long. Its already 366 days away. Wow!! We have 4 children and 5 grand children. My oldest daughter who is going with me is divorced and she cruises with us on most of our cruises. This will be our 5th with Carnival and we went on 2 with Premiere starting in 1994. I wish i could cruise every year. but now we cruise every other yr. Next cruise after this one will be with msot of my family. My oldest son turns 40 and wants a big party on a ship. So we are all going to help him celebrate. Happy cruising to everyone! cruisingrandma
