How exciting, your first cruise! Hope I dont get in trouble for mentioning another website. However, these boards dont necessarily get a big roll call for specific cruises. It's a great informational site
There is a nice size group at another website - http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showt...7#post21913937
Come over and read through it and meet everyone. There will be a meeting on the first sea day, if you like. Introduce yourself to Sue at email@example.com
. Tell her you were on Cruisemates.com trying to meet fellow cruisers and I directed you to her.
1.come early to embarkation, so you can get to know the ship layout.
2.Bring Bonine or ginger or some other antidote for sea seasickness. Hopefully you wont feel a thing.
3. Enjoy room service, enjoy those wonderful HAL beds and service.
Have a great time, and don't sweat the small stuff
