Hello Sauble Beach. There is 9 of us from Brampton all travel MOS Sept 23rd. I love Sauble Beach, but it can't hold a candle to 7 mile beach in the Grand Cayman's. This is cruise 8 for me. I love cruising. This is the one vacation you can get drunk at a pub and have someone put you to bed with out having to worry about driving home. LOL No other vacation has the food the ships carry either. Enjoy the addiction and sail away.

Berick, a high five to you.. I took my 1st cruise last September then again in January then again in March.Yes, we enjoy it for all the reasons noted. We all work hard and it's only right that we can treat ourselves to a little luxury of being waited on and get a taste of how the other halves live.And it's affordable. Maybe I'll see some of you next month on the Carnival Sensation leaving from Port Canaveral on October 11th. Just yesterday the girls (women) in our family and some girlfriends are planning a cruise in January...Am I excited? Sure It's a cruise.....Didikay

So Hank is that 50 cruises within a 2 year span? My gosh...you must have done every itinerary by now if not twice over. We'll do cruise #1 and see how it goes...but we do plan on doing a Southern in March 2009 to celebrate my husband's 40th bday if we get as addicted as you all are!

Happy Sailing and thanks for getting me cruise happy

Saublewater,

The reasons for cruising are different for everyone. As for me, I love it probably because of something which most folks today actually eschew. Cruising is one of the few modes of travel left that one can, if one wishes, revert to a time past, a time when people tended to pay more attention to the “social graces” or, as I like to say, when life was a tad more civilized but not necessarily “high brow.” I don’t know your age but I’m treading on the heavy side of sixty and I fondly recall the days when families, properly dressed from church, had Sunday dinners together. Back then, were adults to dress formally for maybe a once a year big night on the town, other folks kind of admired rather than snickered at them.

I truly enjoy the fact that every night at dinner I am waited upon by formally attired and trained staff who pride themselves in the correct manner to both set and attend a table. Following a memorable dining experience, I can then relax with a brandy and stimulating conversation with either old friends or recently met friendly like minded passengers. And then of course, there’s nothing that compares with strolling the Promenade deck with my wife as the moon rises (or possibly, even sets) over the vast expanse of the Atlantic.

Best of all, one can today enjoy a style of traveling that not that long ago, was only afforded the more economically privileged.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I'm certainly not of the "economically privleged" set. I carried a badge and a gun for twenty-seven years.

I'm betting that what Hank meant was that if you add up all the days he has spent onboard a cruise ship, with his 50 cruises, the days would add up to two years.

I understand what you are saying Southern Fried Cruiser. I am not the type that likes to be served though...I am the one who always tells everyone else to sit down and I'll get it...and so I don't expect it when I go on vacation either...it's just the way I am I guess. Was raised to do things for myself and not wait for someone else to get it done for you. I know we are all different and that's what makes this world such a diverse place that we live in. I am looking forward to this cruise and to experience all that you have all posted. 39 more sleeps till we're on our way
