Yes you heard it right. I got the go ahead this morning to plan. I know, there are some of you who think, "We can't handle her going on another one, she drove us crazy the last time" Fear not my friends, I am now considered a Past cruise member.
Okay this is what I have come up with. Elation leaving Galveston on the 18th of Dec. This one is a 7 day, going to two more ports than the last trip. I am debating on either going back through my travel agent or going through Carnival. I am leaning toward going with carnival, for the experience, but if there were problems, maybe it would be better to stick with someone I know.
Oh that feeling is back.... That butterfly in your stomach thing. I have turned into a cruise nut.
if you have a good travel agent, stick with that person...your first cruise experience was a positive one, but the real value of a great TA is if something goes wrong in the process, plus if your TA is a preferred vendor (does alot of business with Carnvial), she/he may be able to get you alittle better deal or upgrade or shipboard credit etc..I understand Carnival is working on improving it's repeat cruiser program, so if you like them, stick with them to build up your loyalty points.
also, the pressure is now on you to write an even better review then your first cruise. we expect nothing less then the best from you. I don't think you realize how many of us enjoyed your refreshing, funny, well written review...no flower dress on deck for the bon voyage party I assume this time (BG)
I have decided to stay with my TA, well not her but someone from the agency. My first TA had a baby two weeks ago. I have already talked to the new one, and she made me feel so good. I am waiting for her return call now.
The dress was poka dot, and as of this morning, i have lost 5 lbs. If I continue to loose, I am going to wear a smaller dress, and on the panties will say
As for the review, i enjoyed that so much. It was part of the experience. It was fun, sharing.
Great news!!!! Isn't that butterfly feeling great? I am happy to hear your news. Keep up the good work on the diet!!

Dorothy, My review is called Newbie, not new anymore. Jim is going to fix my clock tonight. I thought he would at least roll his eyes, when i asked him, but he is so glad that we are cruising again before he leaves, he said he didn't mind.
What is the name of the BBQ place near the airport? Is it called the BBQ kitchen?
Since you liked the Ecstasy so much I know you're going to love the Elation. She's a nice ship. We've sailed her twice and had a ball both times. They have a great sushi bar near the casino. It's only open a little bitty bit of time in the evening so that was always our appetizer on the way to dinner.
And make sure you go all the way out the back doors in the buffet. There's a few little tables out there and it's a nice place to dine.
