I'm Donna here from the midwest, actually a sub of Chicago. Born and raised here, I'm a year older than Thomas, he has the big 50 coming up :-) I've been part of Cruisemates almost from the humble beginning, and what a site its turned into.

Both George and I have just recently booked the Cruisemates Carnival Glory cruise. I'm looking forward to cruising again with Robo and his lovely wife Sylvia along with Sharon and Larry, and Ray and Helen, what a great bunch of mates to cruise with.

If anyone else is interested in or thinking about coming along with us on Glory, here is the info, you will notice these prices are really good:

Cruisemates Carnival Glory cruise

Hope to see more of you cruisemates onboard..

My DH is David. We're both in our early 50's. Been married 23 years, together, 25 years.

No children together, but I have a beautiful stepdaughter and the smartest, cutest, most wonderful, 7 year old grandson! We have a 16 year old cat, BJ, who is our "baby".

I retired about 10 years ago to care for my late parents. Before that I was a Dental Assistant, then a secretary. (It's been a while-I wasn't an "administrative assistant"!)
We live in central Arkansas, about an hour away from BigJohn and, I think, fairly close to Libbynan, too.

Our first cruise was free from my DH's company. I wasn't sure I wanted to go-can you believe that?? We only had 2 weeks notice and didn't have a clue about cruising. Now we are hooked and are trying to find a last minute cruise for next month and one for next winter!

I'm actually glad no one told me to come to this web-site then. (Sorry, staff!) If I had, some of the posts might have scared me off! Now I know better than to believe everything I read and I LOVE this site! I don't post very often, but read almost every day.

Hi,
My name is Lynne, and Husband is Trevor. I don't know if I ever used the name Lynwar on this site, but it's the combination of my first and last name. We live in Avon Park FL-in the middle where 3 hurricanes crisscrossed last fall!
I'll be 59 in August. Trevor will be 66 in September. We will celebrate our 15th anniversary May 26. I have two boys-Jamie-36 Aug.29; Kenneth who will be 34 Aug. 27. (I'm the 23rd).
Trevor has 4 children and @13 grandchildren if you include step-grandchildren and "others" in the count. My boys aren't married yet, but have an active dating life!

Trevor retired from the Post Office in 1996 as a T-6 Clerk, after 38 years as an employee.
I have an outdated degree in Elementary Education, but actually had 28 years in with the American Red Cross as volunteer and staff. I've worked as the Director of Outreach at a church and have been the Lead Teacher for an After School Care Program, and worked in a nursing home before we came down here to live. For the last 6 years I've been the one and only Activities Associate for Assisted Living and Independent Residents in a retirement facility.My boss is the Director of Activities (basically) for our side and the Health Care Center (nursing home).Other Activities staff work over there.

This will be our 5th cruise in Oct-all on Princess ships except for one.

Kuki here...
name : Sigmund Freud
occupation :astronaut and part time brain surgeon

OK .. real name : MO, married to Mrs Kuki (Geela) for 8 glorious years, 24 all together. We're both 55.
Have two sons.. 23 & 18. The older one beginning law school in the fall, and the younger one in 1 st year college.... and Sammy the frisbee catching phenom.

I've been in the hotel/bar/restaurant business for 30 years, though now it's just one small hotel/bar.

When CruiseMates began, Anne and Paul asked me to come to work for them, and "voila" I became a cruise writer. Not only is it great fun, it's a great diversion from my every day busines.

I also am the one who puts together the CruiseMates Group Cruise Program... which I'm hoping each and every one of you will take advantage of one day.

I've literally met HUNDREDS of readers from this site, and that is a blessing.

Two kids (Who aren't): Michael and Melissa: Michael: IT guy: Melissa is a veterinarian, married to Winston and mother to my wonderful granddaughter, Ramie and is in the process of creating our next grand baby. I also have, my buddy, Kramer the six million dollar bionic dog.

I am involuntarily, medically retired from the IT world. Hopefully I will be back to normal (whatever that is) soon. Betty is an IT Operations tech. I have been with Cruisemates for five years and work the message boards and do some other things behind the scenes. It keeps me off the streets and my bosses are great to work with. (except Jim). <VBG> I enjoy working with the staff and all of the people who visit the boards. Most of all I love cruising.

Take care,

Jennifer, here, from Mesa, Arizona.

I met my husband, Jose, on my first cruise, the Carnival Fascination, in 1995. We were married in Costa Rica on January 1, 1997.

I've been hanging around here at CM since about June 2000 if I remember correctly, I used to post more than I do now. I've just gotten sooooo busy at work! I almost always come and check out the board, I just don't always have time to post muself.

Jose and I were on the original Let'sGet Lei'd cruise in 2002, and I highly recommend that you ALL to a CM cruise. What a blast! I have also been to several land-based CM get-togethers, and have met many wonderful, wonderful people through the board.
