Default My Sovereign of the Seas review is finally up!

I took me a while to finish it but my review of the May 23rd sailing is up in the readers reviews section. Reference my photo galleries posted the first of June to get the whole "picture".

Email me if you have any questions.

Have not done Windjammer. Looked into it and will try someday. I think my odds of finding single chics are better with 2500 people than with 50 or so. So far have done alright. May bring a girlfriend in November.

A great review! Can't wait for our turn on August 12. This will be our 3rd trip on the Sovereign and we're looking forward to seeing the redo.

Hey Dave, great review. Makes me want to book a cruise on the Sovereign. I'll be in Tampa in October for Family Weekend at my kids college. Maybe I'll extend my vacation abit. Have a great weekend.

Dave...you know what will happen don't you ? You bring a nice lady friend and it will be your luck that your ship will have a last minute unannounced Victoria Secret and Sports Illustrated joint issue bikini shoot with 1,000 models onboard along with 1,000 winners of the Brittany Spears look alike contest (VBG)....if you went by yourself in hopes of meeting some nice single woman..your ship will be full of happily married couples celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary

I asked about the Windjammer type experience for your sons because I have been doing some research about taking one and I am trying to convince my DIL to let my son come with me. Like one of my all time favorite songs "The Cat in the Craddle", I wish I had taken him when he was around your sons age, because once your sons grow up they have their own lives, families, work etc and it's harder to spend quality time with them enjoying something you both love (cruising)

Venice,

That song is special to me too. My dad and I have a great relationship and each experience with my boys is special too. I knew from the beginning that these days are numbered. Today I spent the day on the water in the SS Minnow 2 with them and it will be a day to remember. With blind faith, I take every opportunity to be with them knowing that later these days will be looked back upon as the days of their youth that their character is built upon.

But in the meanwhile, I am cruising soon!!!!!!

PS, you are right. If I bring someone, there will be hot babes everywhere looking to be with Dave the Wave. If I don't, there will be a geriatric convention.

Dave--even though we have never met, I am very proud of the way you are with your boys. I know some dads that are never around for their kids even though they live in the same house. (No, I'm not talking about my DH) The dads do their own thing all the time and leave the job of the kids to the moms. It is very sad when the dad's are finally ready to spend time with the kids and the kids are not around any more. More dads, and some moms I'm sure, should really listen to the words of the above mentioned song.

So here's three cheers to you Dave---HIP HIP HOORAY, HIP HIP HOORAY, HIP HIP HOORAY

As for your next cruise, bring someone as a "FRIEND", that way your safe either way.

Cheryl...nice compliment to Dave the Wave....the real joy that he will experience is when his sons have sons..I am going thru that now because my only son just had a son and our conversation is on a whole new level..I only wish my Dad had lived long enough (he died at 52 when I was 21), to see how his grandson has turned out and I can't wait until my grandson turns 4, so I can take he and his Dad on a Disney cruise (got to break them into cruising early)

Only a woman would say bring along a lady friend as a "friend" (VBG-I'm only teasing you)..I've done that a few times and never had a problem, but what if you or your "friend" meet a new "friend". that could cause problems. Most men, think in a different vein then women. and I will be the first to admit that women have a better more balanced thought process in matters of the heart.

Come to think of it, my best cruises have been with my true friends that are female. It's nice to hang out and have a good time with no pressure. I suspect Dave the Wave understands what I am saying (you know he's a shy guy and when he is not dating Brittany he prefers women who were expelled from a convent (VBG)

Thanks, Cheryl. I recently coached my 8 yr olds baseball team and that was the most rewarding experience. I will do it again next year. Tonight is the first night of our Boating Skills and Seamanship class. We are taking it together and should be good for them too. I sold my last boat 12 years ago. Now they are older so we have a new hobby, fishing, skiiing, ect... Safety first though, thus the class. I had to take it before for getting a citation for careless boating so it will be good refresher.

Venice, half the fun of going on a cruise single is the sense of adventure. You never know what can happen. Someone once told me not to bring sand to the beach. My dads wife works for Disney so that is his job, taking my kids there. We have the opportunity to go on DCL too so maybe we will try that. I do like their style of ship and I don't go in the Casino anyway.
