BLYTH - Answered a Question by browne (02 Aug 08 15:08)

Well I have aleays found the majority of cruisers treat get on well with each other but wherever you go in the world you will always find a few rotten apples and I must admit over the last 12/13 years of cruising we have not found very, in fact we still keep in touch from time to time with some we have met so relax and enjoy your cruise it is a totally different experience.

I suggest that you join the rolcall and get chatting with people before you board so you have a ready made group of friends when you do sail!

Like Blyth, in 11 years of cruising we have met many more good than bad; indeed we cruise sometimes with Canadian friends we first met on a Celebrity cruise in 2002 and with friends from Washington D C we met on a Viking River cruise in 2006. The majority of cruisers want to have a pleasant, enjoyable holiday and for most of us, meeting new people is part of that enjoyment. Have a great first cruise....I will bet you will become as adicted as the rest of us!!!

Barnes - Answered a Question by browne (04 Aug 08 17:44)

Hi I have been on one cruise about 40 years ago!! My husband never. He is 50, I am 60 and we are both nervous but also looking forward to the cruise. I talk a lot, he can when he wants to! If you would like to meet up, I can't find a cabin number, as we booked on line and had no idea where to request a cabin. Ask at reception and I'm sure they would tell you. We are detrmined to have a good time, even though we are travellin on a low budget. If you would be interested in sharing a taxi, rather than paying for excursions, we are. Have fun anyway. You sound like you are used to it.
