My dream cruise is becoming more of a reality, final payment time! Just over 60 days to my Sea Princess cruise! My first B2B, and longest cruise yet, 21 days! Woohoo!!! :-)
Sept. 3, Southampton down to Spain, Portugal, France and Guernsey then Sept. 10th Transatlantic via Ireland, island off of Denmark, Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland!
I'm very excited to finally go on this cruise. First looked at this transatlantic in the 80's when Royal Princess was doing it. Had it booked with my friend but she was too ill to go so I cancelled. Thought about doing it in 2003 after I took my early retirement but couldn't afford it so I cancelled again!
Rest of the story is I went back to work for Manpower at Abbott so I could have some fun money! Lately my hours have been real short (way less than 40) so I thought about not doing the 7 day portion but that didn't last long!
I'm going to get this cruise in, no matter what! I lost a great friend and thought I'd never get on a ship again, never feel like traveling again but some of her last words to me were you better do all the "dream" cruises we've talked about, think of me and how I loved cruising!
We met on the ssNorway in 1984 on a transatlantic from England, she died in 1996. I took the ssNorway from Miami to England alone that year, her last wish, don't cancel our cruise, you go for me.
So I've got my list and I'm doing one of those "dream" cruises, this first one is for you, Ginny!
