Pamela, I am excited for you and you don't have to apologize or explain anything. We all have the same love for cruising, (some are known to get down right giddy!)
Once you get your luggage to the pier you will only have to wrestle it into your stateroom because you will find them outside your door, (probably after you have finished checking out the ship).
Then begins the fun part of finding a place for everything, (including your empty suitcases) like under the bed etc. Read about your muster, (the first event on board without a drink in your hand.)
Have a fantastic voyage! or might I just say, Bon Voyage!
We'll be waiting here to hear from you.
