Default How did you pick your first cruise?

I was approached by a good friend (TA) that had a cabin free due to a cancellation for an Hawaiian cruise. My DW has always wanted to visit Hawaii, June was to be our 47th wedding anniversary, her birthday was in April, mine was coming up in July so, we went as a celebration for all of them. After returning home, the majority of (51 from our area) us asked about an Alaskan cruise; therefore, seven days later, we are booked. Alaska, here we come in 2007.

Guess you could say.....we are hooked!!!

roheme, you are doing great with your English.

It wa so many years ago! The first cruise was on the Dolphin ship (501' long) Pacquet Cruise Line.

An instructor at the college where I work organized a group cruise, between semesters, and it appealed to me. It was a 5-day, out of Miami, to Nassau and Freeport Bahamas. Although we poorer than church mice, we had a little extra money for some reason. Being the wiley female that I am , I asked my DH if half the money was mine. Of course, he said yes. So I told him that with a little bit of my half, I was going to take a cruise and that I would love nothing better than for him to join me! He chose to join me!
