Greetings, my name is Ken. My family and I are starting to cruise again. The Mrs. & I went on a short 4 night Bahama and a 14 night Panama Canal (Honeymoon) trip.

Hi everyone! My name is Beckie, and I'm Ken's wife (cookingyo), and we are very much looking forward to getting back into cruising as a family.

Hello everyone. My name is Judy and I am from Milwaukee. My first cruise was on the New Bahama Star back in 1970 as a young child. I was hooked then. Now I am married with 2 sons- 20 and 15 years old. I wanted my husband and children to love cruising like I do. They are now addicted to cruising as well. We have not experienced the bigger ships yet but that will change in January then June when we try Freedom and Oasis. We are looking forward to sailing them. Since booking I have been trying find out as much info as possible. Looking forward to reading tips for cruising and thanks for sharing.

Hello!  My name is Amanda.  My husband and I went on our first cruise in Dec 2015 and loved it so we booked another right away. We even have friends joining us for their first time!  We now know there will be many more cruises in our future for us and our kids (once older! 3 and 1 right now).  Our fun and excitement of our first perked my in-laws interest and they set sail tomorrow. 

 

As a newbie, I joined looking for further information and learning new tips and tricks we didn't know.

Welcome.

Glad to hear cruising can offer you some peace, I'm sure many here will agree it's how we cope aswell.

My issues may not sound as serious but cruising is still my 'therapy'.

 

I always look forward to people's reviews when new to cruising (or atleast Royal). I like the fresh perspective.

Thank you Jerel I do believe it is great therapy for many things. How could it not be :)

Hello, my name is Robert and my wife and I along with our 2 children took our first cruise this year in June on Anthem, I wasn't sure how I would take to it as i work on ships in the oil and gas industry but we all had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so much so we have already booked again for next year. We first booked Oasis in October  but then thought that was too long a wait so have also booked Rhapsody in April both for 7 day Caribbean tours.

 

Can see how easy it is to become hooked on cruising  :)

Hi - long time reader or the blog but, I'll be honest, I hadn't even noticed the message boards until Matt mentioned them in a podcast recently. Usually went to CC instead for message board stuff; glad to have this option now as well

 

Name is Rob - from Kentucky, but now living in Ft Myers, FL (on the SW coast of the state, about halfway between Tampa and Miami).

Initially skeptical of cruising but after losing my cruise virginity to Adventure of the Seas in 2001 I am now a full fledged addict. Ironically, my wife (who was the cruiser that got me going) is now the one I have to push/pull to get to go on the cruises!

Have sailed on Adventure 2x, Enchantment 1x, Liberty 2x, Allure 3x and Independence 1x.

Have bookings on Harmony (Nov 2016 & Apr 2018), Independence (Dec 2016 & Apr 2017) and as soon as it opens we're going to book a Baltic cruise (likely on Vision) in July 2018

 

Happily married - step dad to two kids (one out of college, one going back for Bachelor's Degree #2) and father to triplets (two girls and a boy). Also parent to various dogs, a cat, a turtle and fish.

Hello all! My name is Angel and I am a newbie to RC. I am actually a amateur cruiser since I have only been on one cruise and that was with Carnival. I am currently booked on Freedom of the Seas for March 2017 and I am super excited! My husband and I will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. I am a mother to 3, ages 23,19, and 16 and six fur babies and we live in the mountains of Tennessee. I am hoping to take many more cruises in my future!

Hi! I'm Tannie. My husband Jeff and I did our inaugural cruise around Hawaii for our honeymoon in 1990 aboard the now retired SS Constitution. 

 

We have been avid Vegas travellers for 25 years but then I won a cruise (air included) on the Jewel of the Seas, in a balcony cabin, and I was hooked. We are spending Halloween (this year) on the Freedom of the Seas and are booked for an Alaskan cruise with Princess in 2017.

 

We live on the West Coast of Canada and between the airfare and exchange rate, we can not do more than one cruise a year, but would love to.
