Welcome to Cruisemates SheriL.

We're a friendly group around here. It's like a family and sometimes we have our little misunderstandings or disagreements, but folks around here really care about each other and are very kind and helpful. Glad to have you join us.

We live in Orlando, Florida (to locals known as Mickey Mouse Town). Yes, most of the state IS still here after the Hurricanes last year! That was one experience I never want to go through again. I hope we are spared this season.

Hi SheriL I am basically new to cruisemates also but have found all also to be so nice friendly and kind to my uneducated questions regarding cruising. Going on first cruise on Victory 9-18-05 the week after you. Enjoy and put a towel on my deckchair

Welcome Sheri,

Looks like you're another person who us "northerners" can be jealous of. <G> Don't forget to invite us down for milk and cookies when we are in the area. <VBG>

Hi SheriL:

I am relatively new here too and wish I had found this site earlier for questions on other cruises. I'll be on the Victory several weeks before you and I'll post comments from our trip when we get back. I'm from Georgia and very glad Florida didn't move up by North Dakota! Florida is our weekend playground!!! This is a very accepting group here, full of good information about all sorts of stuff. Enjoy. See you around!

welcome, you have to sign a note that promises that you will check this site at least 3 times a day and promise to give prayers and support when asked unconditionally and if you go on a windjammer cruise that is denied entry to St Kitts, you have to post pictures on this website (smile)

Everyone has been so welcoming. Thank you-I now have somewhere to talk to other cruise junkies.

As an afterthought, my dad sails on the Carnival Spirit tomorrow on an 8 day for the ports of Acapulco, Manzanillo, and Zijutaneo(sp)? I am soooo jealous. I guess i can't be though as I am the one who got him hooked.

Welcome Sheri, This site is helpful AND friendly!
Our W.Caribb. cruise on the Valor was Jan/05, but am kind of hoping for another(W.Caribb.) in Jan./07. So I have not been on this site too often lately, but try and check in at least once/week!
