First time cruisers

hello everyone, my beautiful wife and I will be taking our very first 5 day cruise on the Carnival Imagination at the beginning of December from Los Angeles to Mexico. We are looking forward to it. After reading so many exciting comments, I can truely say this might be the beginning of an unstoppable addiction. We are both from New Zealand and love to travel. Happy

Welcome to cruising and to the site. I have visited New Zealand twice and fell in love. Be sure to write a review and let us know how you enjoyed your cruise.

New Zealand is a beautiful country and very easy to fall in love with. For all the regular cruisers, why not try a cruise to New Zealand some day.

Cruising around New Zealand is definitely on our list! Love

Go to LaBufadora in Ensenada!

Enjoy your cruise! Our second cruise was on the imagination out of Miami. We loved her!! Be sure to check out the open dining area at the back of the Lido buffet. It's one of our favorite spots on the Fantasy class ships.

We did a quick cruise on LA to Ensenada. I have some footage on youtube if youd like to get an idea of what to ship looks like.

Welcome to the addictive world of cruising. For us, it was, from the moment we stepped on the ship, a most exciting experience.Hopefully your cruise will be a memorable and enjoyable one.

One cruise is all it took for my family and I to get hooked! I'm sure that you will not be far behind.

Enjoy. It may become your new addiction.

So apparently I am late to the party, but welcome! I am NOT a newbie by any stretch of the word: I have been cruising since I was 5 years old and just finished my 18th cruise! My 19th will be on the Norwegian Encore, which is a brand new ship that will be launched in November.

Put it this way, soon, you will be able to say you own your first Platinum card...but you can only use your status when on cruises! Big Smile
