Booked a Princess Grill cabin -- traveling solo (yeah, I know) ...
I'm new to cruise travel -- just took my first ever cruise this past September (Holland America Amsterdam, 14 days, Seattle --> Alaska -->Alaska) and loved every minute, especially the sea days. By this time this back-to-back rolls around, I will have completed 3 more cruises ranging in length from 28 to 38 days each (two Holland America, one Regent Severn Seas). I won't be able to do this forever, so I'm trying to do as much as I can while I'm still physically able and have the means to do so. These itineraries hit a few more "bucket list" locations. Funny thing: most of the places on my bucket list are reachable via water. How convenient!
I keep asking myself "what have I just gotten myself into??" -- I'm not a very "formal" person, and I've heard ... rumors ... about how formal Cunard is. I'm hoping that my idea of "dress-up" (nice dress slacks and a fancy top with some bling) will be acceptable. I spent 32 years working in IT, and the dress code was distinctly ... casual. I figure wearing what I'd wear to a night of dinner and theater in NYC would work for this. I hope I'm right.
It's almost two years away, so I have time to update my wardrobe if necessary.
