Our great friends Brenda and JoAnn play the group cruises ahead of time.
So they called a Cruise Buddies breakfast for this past Sunday at Good Golly in Central Square to talk about the next time this gang will get on the big ship.
Way ahead of time. That’s how our fearless leaders get us the best prices on Royal Caribbean International. And so this past midweek, my dear wife Karen and I talked about how we wanted to go, oh yes, to the seven-nighter that will leave out of Orlando of Florida and include ports of call in St. Thomas and St. Maarten. A cruise on which we’ve not been.
But, I said, expenses. We don’t have to sign up now. We have time.
We arrived to the breakfast and I saw the faces of our good friends and JoAnn and Brenda handed out sheets to those already commited and talked of the lowered prices offered by our fantastic agent Naomi at Liberty Travel being held for us for only so long. I turned to Karen and said I have just the plan to make our reservations.
So she pulled out her phone, punched the screen, and showed me the email from Naomi confirming us that had arrived two days earlier. Quicker than me, again, my dear wife Karen. This is going to be this year’s anniversary and Christmas presents to each other. I can feel the sun and fun and taste the food and see the shows already.
How far in advance have you scheduled a vacation? Have you been to St. Thomas or St. Maarten, and if so, what should we be looking forward to there? Have you any cruise ship stories to share?
