and let me say it was just great. I never really thought of myself as the "cruise type", but it was one hell of a great trip. Pricey, but for a once-in-a-lifetime trip, it was fantastic. Went with Royal Caribbean, on the 7-day Western Caribbean trip. Drinks are expensive, but in all, I'd recommend it for anyone just wanting to get away, for once in their lives. Damn near-24-hour buffet. Sweet. The room service is great - it's like they're listening outside your door, waiting for you to say, "Man, wish we had some ice...". Then "whoosh!", there's your ice. Thanks for the tips when I asked back over the summer!
Now, to get back to REAL boating!
