With the weather getting nicer and nicer, Do you ever wish that you were getting ready to go on a cruise, instead of getting ready to go to work?

I don't work, but a stay-at-home Mom. I have all the time to plan a cruise, but no budget for one. To me, that's depressing.

I retired recently, so getting up for work is not an issue anymore except for one or two months a year when I'll be doing consultant work.

But since we always cruise with our son, we are still slaves of the school schedule and have to cruise when his schedule allows. I really couldn't imagine going without him.

I'm not such a slave to my work schedule. I can get enough vacation time to do the cruising. My issue is likes Dave's - school schedules. We don't think we should pull the kiddos out of school for a cruise, so we have to wait until breaks to go cruising. We have thought about leaving them home, but they enjoy it so much. Its really a great vacation for them too. They need to get away and unwind almost as much as we do. They have so much fun on the ships the I'd feel bad not taking them.

I too wish my work was in the travel industry! I know it doesn't pay well and being a TA is pretty pointless nowadays but I found a college near by that has a full selection of tourism classes. So I have decided to take classes to see what is avaialable. Maybe one day I can make a living out of traveling but for the time being I will have fun learning and planning my cruises
