I know what you mean. We just received our tickets in the mail yesterday for our June cruise... Now we are seriously begining to plan our packing. I somehow have to keep my wife and two girls limited on luggage. They can't go out of town for a weekend with out taking every suitcase we own. I just don't want to have to drag luggage all over the airports.

I remember what it was like on my first cruise. That wasn't too long ago. November 1st-4th 2004, aboard the Sovereign of the Seas. Last cruise before it's renovation. My cruise was also during the Presidential Election.

Anyway, I had a great time. I was hooked. I had another cruise almost a year later, even better. Now I can't wait until my third cruise in November.

You will have a great time and hopefully you will be hooked too!

You guys sound like my co-workers. They book cruise after cruise. One of them in heading to the Cayman Islands in October! She keeps telling me how much fun we're gonna have I'm biting at the bit! Oh man, I can just see that ocean! I can just see us pulling off for the dock. Sailing away from taxes, house repairs, my job (I'm a utility company dispatcher) and finally relaxing! YAHOO!!!

I think that you hit the nail on the head. When it comes to a relaxing vacation, I don't think anyone can find anything better than a cruise. Some people will argue that going to an all-inclusive resort is just as good, but I am not so sure. I get a little itchy being in the same place too long. . . Cruising to a different port every day or every few days is great. . . .No worry about how to get there. . . No worry about when to eat. . . .No worry about stopping for directions. . .No worry about anything.

Have fun!! I have a bit longer than you do. . .
How long is it now???
