We planned our 50th Anniversary together and booked a cruise. Yay. We love cruises. Anyway, this one is to the Western Caribbean and leaves out of New Orleans. To go to New Orleans is on both of our bucket lists, so we decided we would go two days early and see some of the town. If we like it, then we can go back again some other year. So next February we'll be on the ship for Rod's birthday and our anniversary. How exciting is that? We'll have ports of call to Cozumel, Roantan Bay Islands, Harvest Caye, Belize and Costa Maya. We're so darn excited. Only 308 days till we leave. LOL The website posts every day. We decided to go with Norwegian Cruise Lines this time around. We haven't sailed with them in about 26 years and boy oh boy do the ships look different. LOL Huge and fancy. Not that you have to be fancy to go on them, which works out well for us. We're not fancy at all. We're both as excited to see New Orleans as we are to go on the cruise. I hope the time goes by slow because I have to lose weight and I have to do a lot of things to get ready. We decided we would get some good Samsonite hard sided luggage for the trip. Geeze, was I ever in shock when I saw the prices. We'll have to save for it. I want good ones with a warranty. And guess what color they are? Caribbean blue. LOL LMBO Cracked me up big time. . It's going to be so romantic for just the two of us to go. We're just so happy. I had to share.
