Default Re: Re: people who go on cruises every month

When I sailed on the Grand Princess an elderly lady at the Captain's Party won the first prize, as she had sailed close to 100 times on Princess. She was also in a SUITE! I know another elderly lady who lives on a ship 9 months out of the year. She doesn't have to clean, cook and if she becomes ill the physician is on board, plus it is cheaper than a fine nursing home. Sounds like a great deal to me!

My last 5 cruises were taken in a year and a half, but then I am retired and now live in Florida.

I live in Florida, 1 hour from Ft. L, and about 2 hours from Miami.
Also, about 2 hours from Port Canaveral.

And, hey, two hours from Disney, Universal, Sea World, etc. etc.

So I don't have to spend the $$$ to fly to any of these places. I guess you could say I am lucky.
BUT ... if I want to ski, or see the Grand Canyon, or visit New York City, or gamble in Las Vegas ... I have to fly.
And if I want to visit the Louvre, or the Tower of Pisa or Buckingham Palace ... yep, I have to fly.
It's a trade-off, right?

I work, so I can't be waiting for last-minute cruises because I have to request vacation time ahead of time.
I booked my next cruise [Oct. 31] online with Travelocity, so I am paying just about the same as everyone else -- minus the airfare.

But someday I'll retire -- please let me know how I can find these cut-rate, last-minute deals.
I don't know anyone down here who has heard of them.
