Default Thanks for the information

I want to thank all of the people responsible for this web site. It has been a great help on getting information about cruising and everything associated with it. My wife and I decided to take a cruise about 4 months ago, and since they started to cruise out of New Orleans (nawlns) booked passage on the Conquest (sailing on the 12th of Oct). The amount of information available was unbelievable, from dining to attire, to were to go ashore. I think I read every comment made by all at every message board site and every individual review on every ship there was. Anyone who decides to take a cruise should have this web site as required reading. I was going to post a gripe on the message site but the only gripe I would have was why didn't I plan a cruise before now.I will post a review of our first cruise experience as soon as we return. No longer will be looking at the Conquest sitting at the pier on the web camera and then watching her leave because next week we will be on her.

5 DAYS AND COUNTING TA DA

Hi Bob,
Now that you are almost ready to take off on your first cruise, I really look forward to hearing how you enjoyed this cruise......I have a feeling you'll come back and want to book that next one, like MaryLou said, its "highly addicting" :-) Plus it sounds like you've done all your homework and have a basic idea of what to expect, just don't let little problems get in the way of having a wonderful time, I'm sure you and your wife will just love it. Be sure to take lots of pics you can share with us in the Cruisemates Photo Gallery, hint.....

Looking forward to your review, enjoy!

You packed yet?

Bob, Bon Voyage and enjoy. But I guarantee you one thing, you'll be hooked after your cruise. I was after the wife and I finished ours in April.
