In Feb, 2000 at around 2 p.m. I had called my travel agent and asked her to keep an eye open for anything that I might be interested in. She told me about some different places that were available in the mear future, but nothing I was interested in though. Then she said there is a package for a southern Caribbean cruise, but it is leaving from an airport in another provience (3 & 1/2 hr. drive) at 7 a.m. the next morning. I had to track down my daughter and see if she wanted to go as my room mate. I called back my travel agent and she booked it for us. No time for any documents!!! Had to drag out the "summer" clothes and pack. hit the road at 7 p.m. and drove to the airport.
Spent the rest of the night in the airport and met an agent early that morning who gave us our papers. By 11:00 a.m. we were on the Inspiration docked at Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic!!! How's that for a last minute cruise? We are still amazed about how that trip happened!!!!! Smooth sailing folks.....
