[color=indigo] Carole & Earl Soule in St. Petersburg, FL
Our next cruise is the Liberty to Panama and after that the Century New Years party '06 with all the CM friends
BTW.. I talked some more people into coming with us for the New Years cruise. They will be in touch with Nancy. CM family is really growing. :o
We're Jack and Kim from Rhode Island and Vietnam (originally), but Floridians for the past 30 years or so. We met in Vietnam 36 years ago, and married 6 years ago (a long and twisted tale). We're currently booked on our 16th, 17th and 18th cruises, including the Cruise of the Century next year.
I'm Cheryl, my husband is Tony. (that's us over there) We live in Metrowest area of Massachusetts. Our two kids (pictured below) go to college at the Univeristy of Tampa. We are new to cruising but have done alot of land trips in the past. Only have a trip to Tampa coming up but hoping to book a cruise soon.
Just got back off the Glory. Have Liberty Oct 24, Just booked the Millennium for April 30, 2006 for 17 day Transatlantic Port Everglades to Barcelona, and off course the Century for New years 2006. Cruises are stacking up now.
Helen and I have been married for 63 years as of Jan 3. We had 6 children, and now have 18 grandchildren with 11 great grandchildren. We just completed 66 cruises and have 67. 68 and 69 booked.
I Sail The Carnival Dream.
The Royal Princess Transatlantic.
I sail The Crown Princess to The Southern Caribbean.
I'm Mike and on the right is my wife, Betty. (We're out of focus and have a flash in the mirror) .
I hang around here and do some moderation on the boards and bug Kuki and Jim. Donna keeps me in line.
I've been part of Cruisemates for about five years. Don't let my member date fool you. It's part of the self inflicted massacre of 2004.
I love cruising and being part of the Cruisemates family. I took my first cruise in 2000 and have been addicted since. I do enjoy helping others with their cruise questions and with the boards. I welcome everyone and feel that there is no question that is a dumb one, as long as it's cruising related. Remember, none of us knows everything.

Hello, I am Darlene from Chattanooga. I have a daughter 22 (Kippi) and a grandcat (Moxie). I will be taking my 5th cruise this year on the GLORY in Dec. Cruising is my life now, I still have to work in between cruises though. I've only been on this site for a little while, was able to meet some fellow cruismates just last week on the Glory. Cruismates are nice people...
Betty and Ron from Haverhill, Mass. Former lurker for about two years. Kuki convinced me to post. Anxiously awaiting Jewel of the Seas 12/11/05. We cruise with Ron's brother and his wife. (Tweety, I now call Ron da coot!)
Hi! I'm Ken and the lovely Mrs. Jones is Vita. We're from Lakeland, Florida, and honeymooned on her first cruise. I've done something over 100 so far, and she about 50. We currently have the Caribbean Princess booked next month (October), the Legend of the Seas in December, and of course, the Cruise of the Century next year. We look forward to meeting more of you in the near future, and probably two or three more cruises in 2006.
See you aboard,
Angela Z. and David from Orlando FL. We've been married 23 years and have been on 7 cruises and look forward to meeting lots of Cruisemates on the New Years 06/07 cruise--our first Cruisemates cruise!

Hi I am Luanne, Hubby is Jim, with sons, Joe and Josh. I was a newbie until a couple of months ago. We did the Ecstasy in June. I have the Conquest booked in Dec. and of course the Cruise of the Century. We have been married 21 years. We have four dogs. Peanut, Molly, Katie, Maggie.
As far as my Conquest cruise. Did you ever see the movie Airplane? Remember when the plane was going so fast, the people kept running from one gate to the next. That will be me for the Conquest with all these storms, or I will call Carnival, and ask where to catch my cruise, and they have to put me on hold to find out where it is. I can't thank Cruisemates for my strange sense of humor, but I can thank them for me sounding like I know what I am talking about with cruising.
Hi, I'm Kelly
just discovered you all this week,
glad to know I am not the only cruise crazy one around
(family says I am)
travel solo, my family lets me run away.
They hike and camp and play sports ( boys ), my idea of camping is a cheap cruise.
Live in DFW area of Texas

Hi everyone. Donna here, with hubby James, daughter Jessica and son Tyler (21 and 17 respectively), from Montreal, Canada.
James is the cruise-a-holic, having just booked our 3rd stacked cruise for the next year. Dec. 3/05 on Triumph, May 20/06 on Glory, and best of all, the CruiseMates Cruise of the Century Dec. 30/06! I cannot wait to meet all my CruiseMates friends!
Hi Kuki - Great new format. Easier to use ! Looking forward to our next cruise Feb 06 on the newly refurbished RCCL Enchantment. In fact, I rallied 8 other families to join us - half have never set foot on a BOAT nevermind cruise ship - so deprived. Should be an EXCELLENT time. I have been on 10 cruises most with RCCL. And LOVE IT. Most relaxing and fun vacation (no cooking, cleaning, and barely have to watch the kids - they are too busy at the kid club !!)
Also note that Travel Channel had a repeat this past weekend of the program they ran in June 05 called "Reborn: Sovereign of the Seas" which shows the process of drydock and all the enhancements made on that ship. Very cool.
Jason, from Delray Beach Florida (between Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale). Kids are all grown and fighting for position in the will...Little do they know I'm giving it all ($1,234.56) to our Dog (Mini-Pin) Tasha...
We do a lot of weekend Mini cruising but are planning to book a 10 day cruise soon.
