OK, hopefully I can get started now.
I've posted a few reviews but just for introduction purposes I'll tell you a little about us. I'm Angela, 52 and my DH is Glen, 54. We now have 6 children - not 4 as in my user name! They range in ages from 23 down to 3 - oldest 2 are biological and youngest 4 are adopted with the exception of 1 who we have permanent custody of! Our oldest 2 didn't get to cruise with us this time because of their college schedules and we ended up having to take our 15 and 13 year olds out of school for 3 days because their winter break was broken up into 2 weeks - Thursday and Friday and then Monday and Tuesday of the next week. Don't even get me started on that one!
We booked this cruise in July, 2016 so we had a LONG time to wait to cruise. Fortunately, we did some cruises in between.
There were 19 of us that ended up going on this cruise - our son's biological Dad and some of his family, as well as some other friends and their families.
I probably drove my wonderful PVP crazy because we had so many changes this time. I had originally booked my oldest daughter to cruise with us because our kids are normally always out for the entire week of President's Day but the calendar changed and since she is in her last semester of college and student teaching full time she couldn't get the days
off to cruise with us. There were also 2 divorces in 2 of the families going with us so we had a lot of cancelling, shuffling, name changing, etc. going on. Our PVP was a Godsend and I am every so grateful for him. He was a trooper through it all. I told him one day that we all had those people we dealt with at work that we went home and told our spouses about and I could only imagine what he went home and told his wife about "that crazy lady from Georgia".
