(Temporary) Cure for my addiction...

After much research, humming and hawing, and one bad day at work Friday... we decided on our next cruise! Bad news... Can't book until I can confirm my time off (Hopefully Monday!) :(


Found a nice late September cruise on the Oasis, 7 nighter. Includes 1 port I've never been to (Jamaica), 1 I have not been to in 8ish years(Labadee),  and a return port (Cozumel). Even though it is not the BEST cruise deal I have come across, (Galveston cruises were so inexpensive, but seem to be a hassle), the flights and hotel deals I found can make up for the extra cash on the cruise. Nothing flashy, we are doing an inside and booking though DirectLine Cruises (Best deal found). 


Super stoked, because I love cruising, but nervous because this will be the first cruise that A) I book/pay all by myself B) Cruising with just me and my BF (we have always gone with his parents, or I have gone with a friend and his family that take care of everything) and C) Booking through a 3rd party site. 


I'm sure that while on the cruise, we will be in the next cruise front checking something out in 2017--longer though..9ish days...we will see what deals they have.

I hope you have a great time, take plenty of pictures to post. looking forward to your review.

Have a great time!

Great! I'm happy that your were about to make a choice and book your next cruise. Don't worry, you will be fine with just you and your BF. Once you have completed this cruise, you will be somewhat of an expert with it all. You will truly know what it's like to hold your next cruise in your own hands. No waiting for anyone else...See it, like it, book it! Big Smile

Now the employer thing can sometimes be a thorn in the side. I'm telling my job now about my 16 days cruise in April 2018. I will keep reminding them until they are able to put it into the system.

Time has been approved!!!!

Time to start planning (any paying!)... Until I realize my wallet is at home :(

Congrats--now go forth and cruise......
