My first cruise was to Cozumel, Mexico, with 8 other wonderful friends. We ported from New Orleans, man was that a long drive!!! Getting to experience NOLA was great in itself. It was pre-Katrina, so I am glad that I got to see how it was before that diaster occured. I wished I could have had one more day to tour the city and see the old side of it.
Second cruise was to the Bahamas, with 20 wonderful friends. Twelve of us flew into Orlando, got in a van and traveled to Cocoa Beach and stayed the night there. The other 8 drove down. The weather when we landed in Orlando was FREEZING!!! None of us was prepared for the weather we were about to experience. We were traveling to the Caribbean, who packs sweatshirts and jeans, none of us!!!! We had to go and buy some!!!

And the third one was to Grand Cayman Islands and to Jamaica with 12 wonderful friends. All 12 of us flew into Ft Lauderdale and then jumped in a van who drove us to Miami, FL where we boarded a grand Carnival ship. If I had to choose this was probably the best cruise I have been on. I loved the islands we stopped at. The water was crystal clear and blue as the sky. The weather was perfect!!!! However around all the resorts the islands are so nice and elegant, but once you travel away from the resorts, they are pretty much nastey, to say it blunt.

So there ya have it, I LOVE CRUISING!! And can't wait to go on another one!!!!
Sorry for the pictures being all crazy, when I scanned them in, it scanned them really small.
