I've taken all your advice to heart.
As this problems of this cruise fade from my memory, the memory of the time I got to spend with my family will remain. The looks of complete joy and happiness of doing something they could not afford to do will remain. The pictures of them playing volleyball on the top of a ship, climbing a rock wall, and gazing at the Caribbean sunset from our balcony will remain.
Maybe we will find a smaller cruise not during crowded Spring Break. Maybe
I will spend even more hours researching. I'll double it to 20 hours of research instead of 10.
I, for one, will look at the positives and the negatives that people write. Not just the positives, and then weigh everything before making a decision. Once again, thank you all, even the ones who wrote really mean stuff. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. I'm sure there are some really great cruises out there. Maybe I'll find one someday. Happy Cruising, everyone.
