I took my first cruise back in the late 80's on one of the big red boats, "Premier cruiseline". At that time, we were cruising with 2 small kids, both actually enjoyed cruising and have since gone on a few more with us. Now, both my kids are married and on their own and still enjoy cruising, must be in the genes?
Since that time, I've cruised with Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity and my last cruise was on Carnival. I love them all, each different in their own way and all FUN!
I met a bunch of very interesting cruisers at a cruising site, hosted by our own Anne Campbell. Shortly after, Anne had started Cruisemates and I found myself a new home here and started hosting one of the nightly chats and worked on the message boards. I'm still monitoring the message boards and stop in to chat whenever I find some spare time.
When I'm not on the Cruisemates site, I work in a large grocery store as an assistant produce manager. Besides my love for cruising, I enjoy movies, books, and working in my yard. At the moment, I'm looking forward to co-hosting the "Freedom Frolic" in September with my best CM buddy, Mary Lou. I've had a few opportunities to cruise with ML before and so looking forward to this one, especially on a new Royal Caribbean ship, my favorite to date.
