Yes Gordon....the Cruise Critic meet and mingle party. We did sign up for it. We never did it before so we said why not. I've always felt meeting another couple or couples makes the whole cruise experience a much more pleasant one. Others to share dinner, cocktails, a laugh or just make simple conversation is what we try to do on our cruises. With these online chats it makes it a little easier and less formal because when you finally meet onboard you have spoke to each other for couple weeks before and you feel more comfortable. Thanks for anniversary wishes, our 25th will be on the 30th of Sept so we will actually be on board for our special anniversary, just like we were for our honeymoon.
Talk to you soon, Jimmy and Liz
