  1. We also have enjoyed your reviews, and enjoyed the stories you have shared. We are so very sorry for your tremendous loss; please accept our heartfelt condolences. Carm and I wish you and your family strength, comfort and peace during this difficult time.
  2. Our first cruise was my birthday present from the hub-unit; we booked it so that we would celebrate our anniversary on the cruise. (Now that I think about it, he got away with one gift for two occasions that year, lol.) We had so much fun we have celebrated our anniversary on every cruise after that. On our upcoming cruise we will celebrate my milestone birthday (albeit quite late, but we haven't celebrated it yet so it counts) and our anniversary, and I am really looking forward to it. We have also booked a cruise to celebrate our daughter's graduation; it was what she wanted and frankly as long as she still wants to spend that kind of time with us I'm thrilled at the prospect, lol. To me, it's not the cruise that is the gift; it's the memories.
  3. I have spoken with Captain Eddie and he says if you experience difficulty contacting CR through the website you can message them on facebook or email them directly at info@coolrunningsbarbados.com. I'm happy to answer any questions if you have any. The truth is, you really can't go wrong with any catamaran in Barbados :)
  4. We have been with Cool Runnings three times, twice when we were cruising and once when we were just visiting Barbados. From what I have seen, they are wonderful with kids of all ages, and also with non-swimmers. They have plenty of non-alcoholic beverages aboard. We had our 16 year old daughter with us and while the atmosphere was fun and relaxed, I would not call it a party boat and she did not feel the least bit out of place. In fact, while she tends to be a bit of an introvert, she felt comfortable enough to mingle. The food was amazing. I wouldn't hesitate to go with them again. I don't know why they are slow to respond (this has not been my experience), but I'm sure they will. You can also try messaging them on their facebook page. They tend to be very responsive there.
  5. I would imagine blind people take cruises for the same reasons as anybody else. For that matter, I imagine any differently abled person would take a cruise for the same reasons as anybody else. It would be much more appropriate to ask "why wouldn't they take a cruise". Cruises have more to offer than just a pretty view. Now, I admit I haven't asked any of the blind people I have met on cruises why they took the cruise... it never would have occurred to me to ask such a thing. We have a student where I work who has a seizure detecting dog. It is a smallish lapdog, who rides with him in his wheelchair. It is every bit as much a true service dog as any seeing eye dog and is every bit as well trained and well behaved. When on duty, it only barks when a seizure is imminent (and it's a deliberate, purposeful kind of bark). Much as it has never occurred to me to ask a blind person why they would want to take a cruise, it has also never occurred to me to ask that particular student why he would want to pursue higher education. So yes, there are all kinds of service dogs, and I am grateful for the services they provide to those who need them.
  6. Definitely WindStar... I have a fondness for tall ships, and when I was growing up I loved watching them make their way up the Welland Canal for the Canal Days festival.
  7. I'm a shy, quiet person but I can be very outgoing when I put my mind to it. I love participating in the roll calls and events that get set up on the roll call - it's kind of nice to know that even on the ship, there are people I already know and can feel comfortable with! I love the Meet and Mingles. :)
  8. I really wish there was a "Like" button.
