I am laid back, not too hard to please, enjoy cruising and try to have a good time no matter what. I have a quirky sense of humor (as does my husband) and I tell my stories through my eyes, my experiences, and my opinions of the cruise and ports. I realize that everyone has a different experience (even if they are on the same cruise or at the same excursion) and everyone has a different level of tolerance or views of what their “perfect” cruise is. We are all unique in our own way and that’s what makes the world a great place of diversity. I don’t expect everyone to agree or disagree with my views. When I research a ship or a port, I do EXTENSIVE research to find that perfect place for US. I take everyone’s reviews into consideration, but yet with a grain of salt. I like to form my own opinions and experience things for myself. My reviews are just to share MY experience and I try to be as helpful as I possibly can to others by explaining things and showing as many pictures as I can so that others can get a feeling for the place.
A little about me. I’m 47 and have been cruising since the late 80’s with my first cruise being with NCL. I took a break for a while after the 90’s and did not start cruising again until 2010. We now try to cruise at least twice a year. I’m very limited as to the times that I can cruise. I’m a Nursing student (since 2010) and will not graduate until May of next year. My only opportunities to cruise are in between semesters (which only gives me 3 dates to choose from each year). I work at the local hospital (since 1984) and work in the emergency room (which also happens to be a trauma hospital). I am a mother of 4, 3 adult children and a perky, just turned 5 year old. I am a grandmother of 2, basically the same ages as my 5 year old (grandson is 3 months younger than my daughter and granddaughter is 7 months younger). Yes, they keep us on our toes. So, I’m young at heart and love to have a good time.
We took our youngest daughter with us cruising when she was 3 years old. She has 4 cruises under her belt now and she is just as addicted as I am to cruising. It’s all she talks about and begs to do. Oops. She always goes with us now since she did so well on her first cruise. My oldest daughter (24 years old) cruises with us sometimes. This Dream cruise was my grandsons (her sons) first cruise. My oldest son (now 26) and my youngest son (now 18 and graduating next Saturday…yikes where has the time went?) have only been on 1 cruise and that was back in the 90’s when they were younger. I hope to get them all on a cruise together with us some time in the future.
So that’s my story and the basics about me…now on the FUN!!! THE REVIEW!!! I hope you enjoy. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
