How about a Roll Call




Hubby and I live in Michigan. (No children) We discovered cruising in Nov. 99 and have been on 4 so far. We are planning on our 5 now. I will take a look at the boards and see what cruiseline would be good for our next cruise. I have tried NCL, Disney and Princess so far.</HTML>

<HTML>Hi I'm Kathy and my husband Georgeand I have enjoyed 11 cruises since 1985 when we went on the Fairsky of the former Sitmar Cruise Line that merged with Princess.
We live in Windsor, Massachusetts in the Heart of the Berkshire Hills. Our next cruise is next Sept. on the Grand Princess.
We have sailed with Princess, Royal Carib., Carnival, Celebrity and NCL. All were wonderful trips. Nothing compares to a cruise!

I'm executive secretary to the president and vice president of an engineering firm and my husband is a field project superintendent (= he travels a lot, in Gerogia right now!) for a large hydraulics distributor.

We love to travel and in addition to our cruises, have done quite a bit of land travel, both in the US and abroad. We are big sports fans, especially Ohio State football (GO BUCKS - they beat Michigan this year - about time!) and Detroit Red Wings hockey.

We love to cruise and of the 8 lines we've been on, Celebrity is our favorite.
