Cruises

Have you been on a Cruise? How about Med Cruises or Mediterranean Cruises?

I used to think only "old" and filthy rich people go on a Cruise. I don't know why I had that way of thinking. It must have been what I heard or what I've seen in the movies or television. But yes, that's how I imagined people who are on a Cruise until I met some of the passengers of a cruise liner when I was still working in a hotel in the Maldives.

In that particular liner, they had all kinds of passengers - couple on their honeymoon, families with young children, families with older children, middle-aged couple, and old people.

I was surprised to find out that "younger" people are already cruising because I also had this misconception that cruising is for people who just want to lounge all day on the deck. I was wrong. Cruising is actually a lot of fun!

From that day onwards, I started googling and reading more about cruises.

There are actually so many cruises to choose from - family cruise, winter holiday cruise, asian cruise, summer cruise, european cruise, themed cruises, etc, etc. You name it, they have it!

What I am keen to join someday is the world cruise. Yes, it is pretty ambitious of me. But if you can dream, then dream big! I don't see anything wrong with it.

Hubby and I have actually talked about this already. We would like to do this once our son has graduated from college. A sort of a graduation gift for him and for both hubby and I.

It is still a long way from now. But that is fine. It gives us plenty of time to save for the big day. It should be fun and exciting!
