SUPERB review (clapping hands)!!! Your thoughts about cruising echo what my feelings are and have been for my past 10 cruises on various lines. Cruising is still the best "bang for your buck"!! My past vacations whether on sea OR land always had something or someone that didn't meet my expectations but I grinned and moved on. Hey, I figured I was on vacation. You are the type of person I like to cruise with. Hope to meet you onboard someday!!
