Michelle and Mark, newlyweds from Orlando, Florida.

Just back from Millennium; nothing booked at the moment as we have to focus on nursing our depleted bank account back to health.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Greetings to all from Greensboro NC...I have been cruising since 1974 on a number of lines and great variety of ships . We have no cruises booked for 2004(1st time in 23 years). We do not like the current cutbacks in food areas and mega ship trends. We want a ship to be a ship with personality, not a floating resort with 3000 other people.

Hi, I'm checking in from Ohio. Don't post a lot however, I read everyday. Our first cruise is in only 8 weeks, 6 days and well, just look at the clock below. Hopefully it works and I haven't messed it up. We're headed to the Bahamas and from the looks of things, no one has posted they are going at the same time. That said, I believe we'll have the whole ship to ourselves or those poor people don't know about this wonderful website. I can't tell you how much reading the posts have helped.

Thanks again!

I am Joyful from Ohio! Buckeye country (the only thing I love more than God, my family, and cruising!)! Last Friday's game (Fiesta Bowl) was awesome! They take us clear to the end wondering just how the game will end up, as they had been doing that all season long!

No cruises in sight for us, my DSH may be going for a visit to the Philippines in the fall, so no (cruise) vacation for us this year. My mom really wants to go on one, so I may get to go and take her on a short one (travelling to a port of departure really makes it difficult).

Happy to know all of you!

Hi,
Teresa here from England. Found cruise mates last month and think it is a really good site for a cruise junkie such as myself.

Cruising twice this year. On RSSC Mariner in March through the Panama Canal - sooo excited about that! and in the summer off to Norway and Iceland.

Mark (Set2cruz) and Robin (Set4cruz, whenever she posts) from Wauconda, Illinois, where it's 2 degrees outside right now. Found this site last year before our first cruise. As you can tell from the clock below we're a few days away {{grin}} from our second. My posting has become sporatic but I read some threads every day.

Greetings from a blizzard in northern lower Michigan - Petoskey-Harbor Springs area. Good day to dream of a cruise!

Have done over 20 cruises, several different lines, can't think of a favorite one - what's a bad cruise (except maybe the Titanic). Nothing booked in the near future but something will show up soon.

Happy 2004 to all Mates!

Hi! Nancy and Ken here from Pasadena, CA (the home of the Rose Parade, Rose Bowl and now the site for the Mars landing. Can you tell I'm proud of my city?) I haven't posted in a long time but am a "lurker". When I first posted on the "other" cruise site with which Kuki was affiliated we had been on only one cruise. We just got back from a wonderful cruise (Celebrity "Mercury") to the Mexican Riviera which was our 11th cruise. Number 12 is already booked for May in Europe. We got a late start with cruising so are making up for lost time - Kuki, I doubt that you remember me from long ago but I send my best wishes to you and to all you wonderful cruisers who make for such interesting and informative reading. Happy New Year to all!!!

Nancy Marquart

PapaBill and Gram live in the northern suburbs of New York City. Our next scheduled cruise is 14 Days on Summit on Sept 17 , Alaska and the west coast to San Diego.
Two days pre in Vancouver and 2 days post in San Diego.
12 cruises in the last 8 years on 12 different ships. Summit will be our first ship for a second try. Gram has scheduled 8 days in Aruba for May to break up the year before our "big" vacation in September.
We are thinking as far out as 2005 now and a few things are currently in the discussion phase. Either a transAtlantic/ British Isles Cruise, a trans Atlantic/ Mediteranian Cruise
or a 10 to 14 day land based , two island Hawaii vacation (Kuai and Maui).
I guess Gram is going to have to get another job, things are getting longer and more expensive.

Chuck Palm and David Brenner, snowed in here in Vancouver, Washington. Please send a courrier in a helicopter with cruise vouchers in hand and plane tickets too. There is only one problem. They are cancelling many flights out of PDX as we speak.

I need a miracle.

These last few days we've watched way too many movies: Help!!! We're even running out of popcorn, not to mention movies.

Here is the list:

Road to Perdition
Unfaithful
Nowhere In Africa
About Schmidt
13 Conversations
Adaptation
Business of Fancydancing
Lincoln
Gettysburg

I may have to watch Fargo for the third time! I love the movie but the snow will put me in the chipper.
