Have you ever run into someone you knew on board, out of the blue? Judy commented in another post about meeting her hubbys old colleagues onboard.

This happened to me only once. I ran into a woman I had worked with, in an insurance company, before I got married. I suppose this might happen alot, but for me only this one time.

I have never met anyone from my past in any of my cruises.

I did have the un-expected surprize of meeting ready2gonow and her husband on the Oasis.

Actually, we met Keith's fellow worker on the Bishop's Walk just outside the old cathedral, not aboard ship. We had spent the night; they had just come in to get on our ship to go to Venice.

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I sat down at dinner on embarkation day a few years ago, and there was one other couple at our table. After a bit of "small talk", comments were made that made it obvious that they knew a lot more about us than you'd expect. After some prodding and probing, we discovered that this couple was our Travel Agent, and her husband. They decided to join us on that cruise, but didn't let us know they'd be there. We had such a GREAT time with them, that we've had our "Annual Reunion Cruise" with them ever since!

Sky, that's too funny...on the way to finding out who they were, you must have had the strangest look on your face, wondering,"huh"


Several years back I was booked on the Mercury...A friend from our old aol chat room, decided to surprise me, by booking the same cruise. Everyone in the room, knew about it...Due to someone letting the cat out of the bag, so did I

So, the ship was late with custom issues, and, sitting in the terminal, I saw this man take a seat in front of me, with a carry on...I was able to peek at the name on his carry on, and sure enough, it was my pal. I kept mum....how funny, he sat right in front of me

He surprised me on board, with a sparkly shoe pin, no less We had a wonderful time, and I'm not sure till this day, if he knew, that I knew

Actually we were sitting on the beach in Maui with Ron & Ferne and discovered that way back (and I mean way back) in the old days when we were mere youngsters, we travelled in the same immediate circle. It seems she was dating a skater that I was very good friends with. We never crossed paths in those days, but found each other some 40 years later thru Cruisemates. Imagine our surprise when we discovered this link.

And even more remarkable is that he is now living about 4 miles from her in Las Vegas. It really is a small world.
