One of my favorite memories is a certain moment during our first cruise, on Carnival's "Festivale" in 1980. It was formal night and I was in a long dress, my husband in a suit. After dinner and before the show, we walked out on deck. It was quiet out there, and there was a full moon reflecting off the water as we slipped through the gorgeous Caribbean. We looked over the rail, with my long dress flapping gently in the breeze. It was incredibly romantic. I remember feeling like Deborah Kerr in "An Affair To Remember." This was an image I used to have as a child, of what it would be like to be grown up and in love. And it came true!

A couple of days before that cruise, we found out that we were expecting our 3rd child. I liked to tell people he was conceived on that cruise...
