My very first cruise was in January of 2005. It was a Norwegian 12 day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands and to the coral atoll of Fanning Island, Kiribati. It was our Honeymoon.
My hubby planned the entire thing. I knew we were going to Hawaii, but I didnt know the details. I said I wanted to see some whales and the volcano. That was all I knew. Im super anal about planning, and I did all the wedding plans(with a couple of exceptions) so I told him he could have this.
He said Pammy, its going to be super expensive so we have to get an inside cabin, down by the elevators so it will be super loud. I said I dont care cause we are going to HAWAII!!!!
Cruise day comes and we have printed our luggage tags and it said our room was 1105 or something. I was thinking first floor room 105. Well we get on the elevator and he hits the 11th floor button. I was like, cant we take our carryons to the room first before we start exploring the upper levels. He just smiled.
The doors open and there are another set of doors that says OWNERS SUITES. I start jumping up and down squealing we arent in the basement!!!!!
We get to the room and there are scores of people in our room just ready to make us happy lol. Im crying because this is soooo over the top. Im just a country girl who hasnt been anywhere. OMG yall, he had ordered snacks, champagne, banners on the ceiling, my favorite liqour bottles.
I have never felt so special in all my life.
Everywhere we went, we had a concierge there to bump us to the head of the line. It was like we were super rich. But we are far from wealthy. Paycheck to paycheck is how we live for sure. My hubby is quite a bit older than me and I look even younger than my age, so Im sure all the other passengers thought thought he was my sugar daddy LOL.
It took us about 5 years to pay this trip off, but I still cry every time I think of how special my honeymoon was.
