It was late July, 2006, we were floating around in our pool one evening and my husband suggested that we go on a quick vacation before he had to start a heavy work load. I suggested a cruise. He told me to look into it the next day. The next morning (Thursday), I went on line, found a TA, and by noon we booked a cruise. Without any research, we booked on the Adventure of the Seas, leaving that Sunday morning, for the southern Caribbean.
Our first impression of the ship was "WOW!" With that cruise we developed a love of cruising and a loyalty to Royal. Since then, we been on a dozen cruises with RCI, and have obtained Diamond status in C&A. We love longer cruises, so we have done several B2B cruises and a transatlantic on the Harmony. Our next cruise is Alaska this June on the southbound Radiance.
Cruising is our ideal vacation, and we still have some "bucket list" cruises on our list that we need to fulfill.
