January is a good time to reflect on the past year and make plans for this year.  Are you planning a cruise this year or even for next year?  After booking, the anticipation is part of the fun.  Researching the ports you will visit, reserving shore excursions, talking about it with friends and shopping for new outfits makes the time pass faster when you book months or even a year away.  We have cruises booked as far out as Feb of ’17, which isn’t that far away now, but it was when we booked it.

Your first cruise is one you always remember.  Our first was in 1991 on Premier Cruise Line, The Big Red Boat.  It was actually the Oceania, but its 3 ships were affectionately know as The Big Red Boats because of their red hulls.  Now it would be a small ship, compared to all the giant ships today.  We had no balcony, no window, not even a porthole.  There were 2 bunks waist high on the walls and we had to step over a ledge about 6 inches high to go into the bathroom. There was no tv, radio or telephone. We were with a Shriner’s group, and Eddie was an officer, so a few of  us got to have dinner with the captain and his wife.  It was a short 3 day cruise with a beach day the only port, but it was a lot of fun and kept us dreaming of the day we could do it again.  Our next cruise wasn’t until 2003, a 7-day to Alaska, and there was a noticeable difference in the size of the ship and the cabins and public areas were so much nicer. Premier later became Disney Cruise Line.
