Default I THINK IT IS TIME FOR A ROLL CALL AGAIN

I do this every once in awhile, so that we all know a little bit about each other. This is also very good to those who join us everyday, but have, up to this point, not made their first post.

I am Luanne
Hubby is Jim
We have two teen sons Josh and Joe
I have been cruising almost 2 years now.

Now it's your turn. Tell us as much or as little as you want.

So Lou, that's a tough one to figure out (your wife's age) - she could be 47. Hmmmm...

Chris here. Cruising since 1984. Prepared for my 19th sailing on Carnival - on the Glory 4.28.07.

Trying to get to cruise 100 before my 50th birthday.

Hi!
My name is Brooke,28
DH (33),
we have a daughter, 8 and a son (2).
We are cruising in TWO weeks on the Holiday out of Mobile. This is our first cruise as a family. I took a timeshare cruise several years ago with my best friend and it was just "okay". The timeshare thing was a NIGHTMARE!! I will never do that again!!!!

Anyway, I can hardly stand myself (I'm sure others are sick of hearing about how many days and hours it will be until I'm in Mexico! HAHA!) Will it ever get here?????

I'm Jim. About 20 years ago, I got very seasick on my first cruise [Rotterdam V]. If you thought that would have been the end of cruising for me, you would been mistaken. For May 2007 will be cruise number 20 for this single hospital employee from S. California...who's been working for the Federal Government for nearly 25 years. Hence, the rapidly graying hair on this 50-year old. The cruise will mark my 7th aboard a "Fun Ship". The first was about nine years ago on the "Holiday"; on tbe "Sensation" in 2002; "Paradise" in 2003; the "Conquest" in both 2004 and 2006; and a "crossing" on the "Liberty" in Spring 2006. The Rotterdam V? I cruised on her as the Rembrandt. Just weeks before Premier's bankruptcy.

Hey Sunshine. . .I am fairly new to the site but feel right at home now. I will be going on my first cruise in 13days with my BF. We are both in our 30's and really, really excited. Since I booked my trip and lucked out on finding this site, this is the one thing that has kept me from going insane. Thanks !!!

Aside from the anticipation of boarding the ship I must say Iam in desperate need for some good ol sunshine. You see I reside in central New York and as I type we are in the midst of yet more snow.

Not only have you all helped me with suggestions on what to wear and wear to go, you also gave out great tips on all those must have items to make the trip even more enjoyable (I have already packed the powerstrip).

You guys are the best!!

And the count down continues. . .Oh & keep the tips coming.

My name is Brian. I will be 46 in about two weeks. This year will be my 20th wedding anniversary. My wife is 43. We have one soon to be 15 year old son. He is a honor roll student that has the potential to be the valedictorian if he can keep up the way he is going now (I know that is a long way off).

My wife and I went on the Holiday and Tropicale around 1986 and 1987 (I don't remember the exact years).

I am one of the lead architect on a team that designs multi-million dollar data centers for a very large corporation you know very well.

We are going on the Sensation taking my 17 year old niece with us. She has been like the daughter we never had.


Brian

Bear with me, I am still trying to get used to this new laptop keyboard. My computer had a cataclysmic meltdown and I needed a new pooter, so I got a laptop loaded with Vista...which sucks...I'll take XP any day.....now if anyone can tell me where I can find the folder to delete my internet cache each day I'd be grateful!!!!!

Luanne,

Just in case noone has told you lately... YOU DO A GR8T JOB HERE


I'm Elaine, husband is Doug (both late 40s). We cruise at least once a year with our daughters Danielle 16, Lauren 13, my parents (in their 70s and Dougs parents (in their late 60s).

My family and parents are all Platinum, have been since it started. I just got off my 14th Carnival cruise, my parents 23rd!!! My goal is to beat 100 cruises once I retire. I plan on getting on a ship and only getting off when they make me!!! Doug says he'll be right by my side but I can start without him because I can retire from BellSouth (which is now AT&T) in 3 years and Doug still has 15 to go with the Post Office!!!

For Danielle's Sweet 16 we took her & her 3 best friends on a cruise instead of having a party and I told Lauren we can do the same for her... It was Danielle's idea but heck, we didn't fight her on it!!!

So, I guess I can say that I am very fortunate because my whole family loves cruising.....
