It's been years since I've had the opportinity to get away and a friend talked me into making the time. I've been in the Caribbean quite a bit (way back) but never on a cruise, very excited. Hoping a lot of the neg stuff i read is just your basic.. neg stuff. One thing I did see was the 'food sucks' theme but I live in Manhattan and can get the best of anything I want any hour of the day. I can't sit in a private balcony 100 feet over the sea with a book and bottle of wine or frozen drink by side with nothing but sea and sky in front of me. Might not even get me off my balcony
You will enjoy it! The first cruise I went on was on the Ecstacy out of Ft. Lauderdale in '99. Woke up in the hotel room on the first day and had the tv on for noise and the Titanic movie was on!!! WOW!!! I was concerned about omens but the cruise was a blast and hooked me deeply!!! I try to go at least twice a year now. Have fun!!!!!!
Cruised more times than I can remember.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
