    Drinking On Deck....

    I got drunk for the first time while on a cruise (under-age, of course!) coming back from Mexico. I ended up making out with a guy I'd liked for the week, which was kind of nice I guess. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has gone off and drank themselves silly or hooked up...

    8th Grade

    In middle school is the only time in my life I've been on a cruise and I loved it! It was for the outgoing 8th graders because we'd be in high school next year. I enjoyed it very much so.

    I have been on four cruises.

    Sure wish I could go with some EP friends on the next one. I love the time at sea more than in port.

    I Loved My Cruise

    In the summer of 2006 I went on my first cruise, to Alaska. My whole family went for my grandma's 75th birthday, as she'd always wanted to go on a cruise to Alaska. At first I was really upset, because I'm really afraid of being on a ship out in the water (thanks, Titanic), and I...

    Just went on a Caribbean cruise back in July

    with 3 of my girlfriends! We had an amazing time just having fun, laughing, and enjoying some time away! Lots of alcohol, beaches and water. It was great to cut loose and just relax for 7 days to get away from the 'real world'

    Carnival Elation

    Back in October I went on a Cruise. I went on the Carnival Elation. Left from New Orleans and went to Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico. It was a blast. I would rather do an all inclusive resort, but the cruise was fun. I look forward to the next one.

    My two girlfriends and I coupled with our three

    husbands took a cruise to the Caribbean last summer. We left our kids at home while we were on the Caribbean beaches for several days. It was a total blast and would love to take more cruises in the future to other destinations.
