Default Just booked our 1st Celebrity cruise!!!

I just booked Quantum of the Seas last week but we don't want to wait 16 months for another cruise. In October we sailed on Oasis and discovered just how great cruising can really be! We have been talking about taking a Celebrity cruise since then.

So today without her knowledge I booked Celebrity Silhouette for 2/09/14. A birthday/Christmas/Valentines Day present!!! Valentines Day (with a full moon!!) at sea !

The down side is I want to tell her but that would ruin the surprise. She's going to know somethings up!

We were on the Silhouette last year for our first Celebrity cruise and it was our very best cruise experience.

Not sure yet. Told her she need to take that week off. Past few years we have gone to Washington DC for a long weekend and we decided to take a break this year. I'm sure she has an idea. She knows I wanted to cruise out of Puerto Rico cuz a guy I work with winters there. But airfare got too high.

Want to pay it off before I tell her. She has 2 kids in college so she's stressed about money. I told her you take care of your kids college and I'll take care of vacations. Can't deal with another vacation-less winter!!!!
