Yes, a number of them.

We have a circle of Cruisemate, and, pre Cruisemate friends, dating back to the late 90's..We met in Florida before a cruise for the first of many "Bashes"The 1st was held at the Marriott in Lauderdale, No one had met before other then in a chatroom. It was an amazing get together. Lifelong pals were made...two of my pals from back then Ray & Gaile, called me this week, to make sure we were doingt ok with the storm.

I could make a long list of our group connections since then..the good and the bad, and we are always there for one another...a wonderful thing!

Trip, with her book & tea!

I too have met many wonderful cruisers from Cruisemates on some of the group cruises... I am sure in the future, we'll cruise again with new and old cruisemates.

We have seen one couple, that we met on our first cruise. The funny thing is that their daughter, knew our future son-in-law, and my daughter, has seen their daughter at football games at the University of Maryland plus at several weddings. Another couple, from Vancouver, that we were on a cruise with, had heard about Hurricane Isabel when it reached the Tidewater area of Virginia. They immediately offered their home, for us to stay in, if we were unable to make it back to Virginia Beach.
