Hi, My name is Denise my 11 y.o. son's name is Noah, we live in southern Maine and will be going on our third cruise April 21, 2008. We try to book them right after tax season ends (I work for a cpa firm) which happens to fall on school vacation. (yeah!).
I am Linda and my DH is Darryl, we live in Atlanta. We have been on 3 cruises and planning on Alaska for our 20th in 2009 but I am hoping he will agree to 2008. We are in our 50's also and hope to make the required move to Florida once we hit retirement age. What ever retirement village we move to it will be near a cruise port.
My name is Angie and my DH is Ken. We are in our "upper" 40's and have no kids, except the furry, four-legged one, Mallory. We are from cold, snowy Iowa (winter storm warning with blizzard conditions forecast for later today) and we are going on our first cruise Jan. 14th aboard the Inspiration. :D
We decided last January that we were going to actually go on a cruise, did much research on the web (this site has been fantastic) and we booked in March. We booked an inside guarantee and we were upgraded to a 5A (portholes, woohoo).
I've really enjoyed the message boards here, it's helped us in our planning so much. Plus, I enjoy reading about everyone's cruising experiences and the pictures that are posted.
Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
