Got engaged ...got divorced ..met that special someone.  what was the best thing that ever happened to you on a cruise?

For me, it was restoring my serenity and peace of mind.  My mother had been murdered, I'd spent five long years in a courtroom, and I had become a shell of the person I used to be. I suffered from PTSD, depression, you name it.  Cruising restored me. I could finally exhale and begin to enjoy life again.  There is something about the ocean that has that impact on you and you can't help but feel that all is right with the world.  I can close my eyes - hear, see & smell the ocean and go to my "happy place". I learned to stop letting people, places & things rob me of the joy I want to feel in my heart.
