Thank you from a newbie!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

What an incredible site this is! My DH and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary in June, 2013 with a cruise to Alaska...our very first cruise EVER!

 

This is a trip of a lifetime for us...and I just wanted to thank those of you

who have posted and shared such a wealth of information and tips for those of us new to cruising!!

 

I've only begun to scratch the surface of this wonderful site...but it's already been immensely helpful!

 

Thanks again! Your time and effort is greatly appreciated by this first-time cruiser!

Welcome to Cruise Critic, HeartSong!

 

As you've discovered, there are so many valuable resources here on the site, and many experienced cruisers to help you navigate the ins and outs of cruising. I've received great advice from people here. Make sure you check out the different threads on packing, the Roll Call for your ship and the Alaskan Ports of Call you'll be visiting...and keep an open mind on everything the experience has to offer.

 

Enjoy your cruise, and Happy Anniversary!

Ok, I couldn't help myself and just had to add to this thread (this is my first ever post - yay!)

 

I totally second the OP's comments and also wish to extend a massive thank you to the contributors of this forum. DH and I are heading on our first cruise in December and the information I have obtained through stalking this forum is amazing!

 

Thank you!

 

And to the OP - I hope you have a wonderful time! :)
