Default POLL- Who's giving cruises or cruise stuff for Christmas or

Who's going to go score BIG points giving their significant others, or family, a cruise for Channukah or Christmas? or failing that... cruise related gifts

With pricing now as good, or better, than it's been in years, might be a darn good idea. Then you're rewarding yourself as well <G>

Queeg is receiving his Christmas present early. Like, next week and the week after.

Another writer purchased a TERRIFIC thing in California last week. A collapsible suitcase that actually has WHEELS on it. It was $17. Darn the guy, he didn't show it to me until after we were far away from the point of purchase.

A while back, I wrote an article about great cruising Christmas/Chanukah gifts. I'll try to remember what I said. (Gets progressively more difficult with each passing year.)

Our Dec. 15 Millie cruise is my Christmas gift (and also birthday gift - his was in Oct.) to my fiance Mark.

He gets to pay the sail and sign bill - that's his Christmas gift to me. <G>

Cheers,
Michelle B.

The Thanksgiving cruise on Golden is our Christmas gift to our adult kids. The airfare is for their birthdays....one in October and one in November.

I think a cruise would be a thrilling gift....either to give or to receive. And you could do the doc dance around the tree!

We really didn't have the moeny to blow this year on a cruise after we bought an RV and Truck early this year but we went ahead and went on one in October anyway and spurged on a really nice hotel too the day before that we had both wanted to stay at. It was very nice and it was our Bdays and Chrsitmas and everything else to each other. Debbie

My wife and I have retired and decided to spend our kids inheritance with them while we can still enjoy it. So the first "gift" is to take our 3 adult kids, spouses, and 3 grandsons on a Christmas cruise. That will be all they get for Christmas, except for the grandsons which will be spoiled rotten by Judy. ;-)

Bob.. yes this past August we gave a neice and new nephew a honeymoon cruise on the Carnival Pride. It was a combined engagement, wedding, and every future birthday we'll likely forget gift.

Mermaid - Kuki,

I'm available for adoption. I promise to be a very low maintenance relative. One cruise per year and you won't hear a peep out of me for the remainder.
