Talking Finally!!!!

In June I booked a cruise on Silhouette for Feb. I have the airfare booked, hotel reservations and the cruise is all but paid off. Got the tips paid and we are getting the booze card promo comp. But I have not been to talk about it because it's my girlfriend's birthday/Christmas present. I told her what days she needed off from work but that was it. And she would need a bathing suit.

Her birthday is Saturday so I can finally tell her!!! Then 4 months and we off!

You definitely know how to think outside of the box, good for you when vacation is booked and paid then there is only left to wait and this can be harder task, especially when you have to keep such secret. Good luck!

The Carnival Poop cruise was not so great.

Cruising is like pizza and sex, it's all good, just some is better than others! As far as the poop cruise I would have found a way to have fun! Plus they got another cruise for free. Of course it would be on Carnival again.

I just one of those cruises that get hit with a rouge wave that busts windows and people get hurt would kinda of suck! But it think with cruising you have the best odds of having a great time! I'm banking on it with two more planned trips. And working on a third...v

My sentiments exactly!!!

Having been on the Eclipse, I know you will absolutely love it! The Solstice-class ships are one of our all-time favorite and we think we've found our perfect ship for us. Out of 46 cruises (soon to be 47) on 11 different cruise lines, I can honestly say that so far it was the 2nd best ship we've ever been on. (Paul Gauguin in Tahiti was our favorite and that would be tough to beat.)

You'll have a wonderful time and make sure to try a couple of the specialty restaurants, especially Qsine. It was great!

Well the cats out of the bag!!! She could not believe that I booked in June and didn't say anything or slip for 4 months!!!
She is very excitied which makes me very happy!!

The next 3 months and 20+ days should fly by. (Till we get close) We're going to Nashville for 8 days in 3 weeks.
Then the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years and they fly by.
Once the mid January gets here I'll be chomping at the bit to go!

Can't wait for that first sunrise from our balcony!!!! Nice plate of fresh fruit, some juice & coffee and a whole cruise ahead of us!
