1978 and the Carnival Mardi Gras as well. Hmm you were not on the same cruise as me were you Seamom??? :lol I was the sober one ... Yeah Right. :grin Probably the reason why I have NO recollection of what that ship was like. :dance
December 1991 for our third anniversary we sailed aboard Regal Princess 7 days in the Caribbean. Our first two anniversaries were spent at the Homestead and at Wintergreen in snowey weather. Enough! In 1990 we went to Cancun and then strarted cruising in 1991. Lost my job 2 months later, but nothing stops an addict.
Karen's first cruise was aboard the QE@ with her mother and brother before we met.
Princess and QE2 for starters. No wonder we have learned to love cruises.
Mine was a four-day Baja cruise on the Azure Seas out of L.A with my sister and her friends. I would've been 20 and sis 18. There are several things I remember...
I remember how hot and humid it was in San Diego when we visited the zoo.
My roomies thought the room was so small, but being an addict, I found it cozy and adequate for our needs.
Michael Berger (who eventually did a morning show in the 90's) was our comedian, and he made jokes about several in our group, including my sister. He was great!
There were two college friends seated at our table, and all we did was talk about how great the food was. One night at dinner, someone in our group asked me what was the biggest cruise ship, and of course being the addict of the bunch, I knew the answer (Sovereign).
Our first cruise was in March 2000 aboard Dawn Princess out of San Juan....celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary...What a fantastic time and such a memorable time....we both decided then that cruising is the "only" vacation for us.....I am soooooo glad that we took that plunge and took that cruise...only wish we would have done it sooner!!!! Looking forward to many more

:COUPLE My husband and I went on our first cruise in 1987 on the Nordic Prince from New York to Bermuda. We had perfect weather, great food, great tablemates(our whole table was asked to dine with the Captain) and we made lifelong friends with another couple who are from New Orleans. Since then we have cruised 6 more times( 3 of those with those friends), and are going on the Adventure of the Seas this June. Life is good when you can afford to cruise. :wave
