Default OOPS! He's Done it Again!

It seems we can never go very long without another cruise on the books, and when I came home today, I found that my dear hubby has booked another one!
Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a whole year for this one, it is a Christmas and New Years cruise NEXT year, on the beautiful Celebrity Equinox.
We decided that with no family around our new home at Christmastime, we would like to get away and enjoy cruising over the holidays.
Anybody like to join us?

Congratulations on having another cruise booked. I am sure that you will love cruising during the holidays and of course the Equinox will be an excellent ship to cruise on.

That is great news, Donna. Are you going to see if the other Donna can go too?

Luanne, I'll ask her, but I know she does have family around to spend Christmas with, but you never know...

EXCELLENT! (I knew you and James couldn't stand to be without a cruise booked!) Sure wish the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I could join you again, but the Christmas Season is one of our busiest times here at Vita's business. We haven't sailed "Equinox", but I've heard nothing but GOOD things about her. I have no doubt that you'll have a wonderful cruise.

That sounds like a great cruise. It's always nice to have a cruise to look forward to.

Lucky lucky you! We did a Xmas and New Year cruise way back when and it was absolutely magical. And that was on a VERY old ship (it sank a few years back!) so I can only imagine how wonderful it will be on the Equinox.

RD.. congrats! Well that was a long break from cruising

No doubt Equinox should be more up your alley as far as quieter music around the pool, trivia etc. - the stuff you didn't care for on your last.

If you've not been on a Christmas or New Year's cruise you might want to read my blog from last week to help you with what to expect.

Congratulations, Donna. We spent Christmas in Hawaii many years ago. Keith likes to be with family a Christmas, so I doubt we'd go with you, as much as I'd like to.

Thanks Kuki, I will go read that blog. If you remember, we did cruise at New Years once with you and the CMs, on Century, but we've never done Christmas...should be interesting...

Sounds like a fabulous idea! We loved the Solstice last May and would like to try the rest of the ships in this class. Enjoy!

Congratulations Donna and James! It sounds delightful, but, unfortunately, that's during the time of year when Jose isn't allowed to take vacation time off. But we'll join you in spirit, and in a toast!

How wonderful is that? I have always wanted to do a Christmas Cruise. I hope you have a wonderful time.
