I must say that you hit the proverbial ball out of the proverbial park! This was my very first cruise and to be honest I was a little apprehensive. However, after some initial rough seas, I had the most wonderful time of my life. Also, my best friend and wife came (It was his birthday) too. They had a tremendous time as well. Everything was perfect! The book signing, the birthday party, the mixer........everything. We all agreed to do another cruise!!
