Just booked a cruise

April 11th, 2010 at 06:01 pm

We went to the travel agent this morning and booked a family cruise for July. My mom is turning 80 in August and told us recently that she'd like us all to go on a cruise to celebrate. The date that worked best for all of us was actually early July. It will be DW, DD, me, my mom, my cousin and my MIL. We're doing a 7-night trip from New York to Bermuda. We've cruised 3 times before, most recently in 2005. My cousin is the only one of the 6 of us who has been to Bermuda before but it was about 20 years ago so he is looking forward to going back. I've always heard great things about Bermuda like how clean it is and how friendly everyone is so I'm excited about finally getting there.

My mom actually wants to treat us to the cruise but we're definitely paying part of the cost. Of course, we'll also have plenty of incidentals to pay for, like excursions, tips, souvenirs, meals off the ship, etc. We won't have airfare but we will need a limo service to take us to and from NYC.

    That is wonderful. I use to go on cruises all the time when we lived in Florida!

    That sounds amazing! I have never gone on a cruise, but it is something that my wife really would like to do someday. And hey, if it leads to the Bahamas, all the better! I also like that you have some insurance that all the food on the ship is covered... I could put a dent in that, I think. =)
