Default Hello Board! I'm a newbie to your board!

Hi Everyone!

This site is wonderful! Everyone seems so nice! I've been on 6 Carnival cruises and had a great time! I'm hoping to book a cruise on the Seadream as a surprise for my DH retirement in two years. We have several land trips scheduled between now and his retirement.

I can't wait to join in on your posts!

Hi and Welcome!! This has to be one of the greatest sites on the net. Everyone here is friendly and helpful. I am Laura and I live in Florida. I also have a Louisiana connection. My daughter lives in Houma. Perhaps we will get to meet sometime if you are coming to Florida to cruise.

Thanks for the welcome Earl, Luanne and Brian! You sure are a fun loving crowd! Earl, the Seadream is with the Seadream Yacht Club. I saw it on the Travel Channel and checked the prices at online discounters. It is a bit steep but it would be a once in a lifetime trip for us.

Me too! However there are some sites with good deals. I wish I knew 56 couples who would agree on one itinerary to make a group. I'm dreaming now!
