That is a great coincidence (same trip, deck 9, 40th B-day,etc)! I'm jealous you are going on the cruise next week - I can't wait any longer!
I would love to know what you thought of the cruise, deck 9, things to do on the boat and things to do at the ports. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you'd like when you get back. I would really appreciate it! Have a great time on your trip!
