I was a little apprehensive about a cruise as well. After our first cruise, I was hooked!! Where else can you go and unpack once, but see different places? We have a group of friends that do the all inclusive's every year. It just doesn't interest me at all. Same place, same beach, same everything for a week. Don't get me wrong, some people enjoy that, but I think I would get bored. Even at sea days, there is always something to do. I have even talked about 14 friends into going next year. We are going to do what was said previously. Have a cruise meeting. I will show pictures of previous cruises along with all of the islands that we have visited. Even after discussing this with them, they are getting excited just thinking about the meeting!! Once you have them hooked, they'll thank you over and over again. Cruising is the best!!
