I just want to say, anyone that has responded to this, and is PAST the age of 65, MORE power to you.It took me ELEVEN YEARS !! To get my wife on a cruise ship !! She kept stubbornly saying, ' NOoooooooo !! NOT me!! NO way, am I going anywhere on a boat !!' I finally went behind her back, and booked us on a five day cruise on the Carnival Holiday out of Mobile for our 12th anniversary, the 17th of March. We went to the cabin, unpacked and went topside for the sail away party and before we even left the dock, she turned to me and said, ' WHEN can WE do this AGAIN !! To say she was HOOKED ! Is an understatement !! Since then, we've been on EIGHT cruises, and are going on one this weekend for our anniversary out of Port Cavernal on the Carnival Dream. It's all she's talked about for months !! Seems, I've created a 'cruise mama' !!
My friend and I (my husband won't fly) were to cruise the 30th of this month, (I just turned 70 in February) but since I have been in the hospital 6 times (last year and this year), I am having to cancel this trip. We wanted to go so bad, but going to the Caribbean, and something happening to me, until I'm released by the doctor I could not take a chance on.
If I don't do a cruise this year, I WILL plan for next year.
I have cruised for over 20 years, and LOVE, LOVE, VOVE it. Of course anyone can be "nit picky" if they want, but you have to find the GOOD in people, and where you are headed on your cruise.
