    "Converted" to Cruising.

    Hi everybody,

    Just joined the forums as a recent "convert" to cruising having experienced our first cruise as our Silver Wedding celebration last October on the Thomson Spirit's "Jewels of the Mediterranaen".
    We were blown away with the experience and like a lot of people wished we had tried it earlier.

    Needless to say we have just booked on the Spirit again for August 2011 and this time we are taking our adult son and daughter as we want them to experience cruising long before their Silver Wedding Anniversaries.

    Full steam ahead,

    Brian.

    Hi Brian

    The Spirit offers a great cruise experience - I have been on her and her sister ship Celebration. The cabins aren't great and the ships are getting a little tired but the Thomson crew are so eager to please and the shows are some of the best I've seen at so and so the overall experience is always fantastic.

    I hope these forums whet your appetite even more!
    Cruising my way through life!

          Hi Brian. Welcome to the forum.

          We, like you came to cruising realtively late, ten years ago. we chose the trip because it went to Iceland and Norway and thought it was a one off! We didn't realise how addictive both cruising and Norway are. In fact we are goping back to Iceland, but not to Norway this year and we are really going to miss Norway!

          Happy cruising.

            Welcome Brian....
            My parents were the same when they went on thier first cruise, they came back and persuaded my wife and I to go with them the following year... we were a bit aprehensive, but finally agreed - well, 6 years later and I'm about to do my 10th...!!!
            Very addictive, but oh so enjoyable... :D:D:D
