Nope not me! But a friend of mine has! We went on the Inspiration in January of 2001. She met a wonderful man from Utah. (we live in Florida). on the next to last night of the cruise. The distance hasn't stop them, they're still going strong!
Though it's not some sort of lasting fairy tale story, I had my very first kiss at age 14 in 1993 onboard the Ecstasy after sneaking away from the Cozumel sail-away midnight deck party and going up to the spot at the very front overlooking the bow. Moonlight skies, twinkling island in the distance, cool sea breeze, beautiful "older" (16) girl, and island music faint in the background... what a memory. We spent that whole week together, every waking moment, then wrote at least once a week--usually more-- for a year or so after we got home... now, she's married and i'm engaged, she's in New Jersey and I'm in Texas, and it's almost 10 years later but we still drop each other a line once in a while... I've been on 15 cruises (Victory 7/7/02 is #16!) but i'll never forget my week on the Ecstasy. Puppy Love at its finest.
I was on the Imagination on May 18th. I met the most wonderful lady after our day in Ocho Rios. It was so nice. I ditched my buddy and took her to dinner. We went had the most wonderful time, including an all night chat on deck. We have spoken almost everyday since we returned home and I am going to see her in a couple of weeks.
I guess things to happen when you least expect them.
