Default Introductions and salutations

Hello and good day to all my fellow travelers. This is my first cruise and I feel may be overwhelming with all that goes on. I like to get the most out any vacation experience. This one will be different because my beloved wife Donata (her name means "the gift" in Italian) of 25 years passed away from primary Cardiac Amyloid so this will be new territory on both levels. I am with a good friend and an experienced traveler T. Rask which will smooth the waters. I look forward to meeting new and interesting people and I am also a friend of Bill W. too. Anyway hope all is well with all of you and see you very soon.

Condolences on your loss. I hope cruising will bring you many joys, especially since you have a friend with whom to travel. You didn't mention which ship or itinerary you've selected. Welcome to CC. There's a wealth of information here, and some generous people who'd love to answer your questions.

Happy cruising and happy posting.
