I'm a SWF living in the D/FW area of Texas. I don't want to spend Christmas alone, so I'm booking my 1st cruise. I haven't ever taken a cruise before, so I'm very excited about this one! It leaves out of Galveston on 12/21/03 for 7 days on the Carnival Elation. If anyone else would like to join me...I say the more the merrier. I'm probably not interested in sharing my room, but there are still cabins available at this time. Please let me know if you have already reserved this same cruise, or planning on it. I'd love to meet new friends.
