Yes, in nine days I will be upon my first cruise. It has been a long time from looking at boats at Key West in December and saying...we should try that till now.
We are ready to pack, and have taken many of the suggestions on what we should pack...steamer, drop cord, little clothes and loads of money. I will report on my cruise upon returning, and I will take KUKI's lessons on blackjack to the table with me.
Good for you Bellyroller, go and enjoy your cruise. But be prepared to come back quite addicted to cruising. The only cure for PCD (post cruise depression) is to book another cruise immediately so you have something to look forward to.
We will be in single digits tomorrow and I'm feeling the excitement build already.

Going on your first cruise is a little like your wedding day. There's so much to observe and participate in, and it's all so much fun. So much so that you don't really remember doing everything. It all comes back to you after seeing pictures or watching the video!! At that point in time, you'd better be booked on another cruise. (that part doesn't apply to your wedding day )
- please report back if you see any poker in the casino!
Have a great trip. I know what it is like to wait for that first one. Remember to keep it positive. If something doesn't go just right, laugh and remember all those who can't or haven't cruised. This week you will join a very special group.
Congratulations, bellyroller (what a cute name)! I'm glad to see that you're reasonably well prepared for your very first cruise. When I took my first (1978), we didn't have the advantage of boards such as CruiseMates. Heck, computers weighed about two tons back in those days. I was clueless as to what to pack or where to go or what to do on a cruise. You're lucky that you weren't born back in the dark ages, like I was.
Have a great time, and welcome to the world of the SDM. Get packing!!
