It’s official — we’re going on a cruise in October!!!
I had this idea few months ago, and mentioned it to Jeff to see what he thought about it. And of course he was immediately on board. (haha, accidental boat pun) So I hopped on Royal Caribbean’s website to do some preliminary research, and found a couple good options, but then didn’t get much further than that.
Then last Wednesday night after choir rehearsal, I had a quick chat with a lady in choir who is a travel agent. I was just asking her what the advantage of using a travel agent was, versus just finding & booking ourselves online. She said you would pay the same price (no travel agent fees!?), and find the same options, but they would take care of everything. So Thursday I sent her a quick email stating when we wanted to go, our approximate budget per person, and that we wanted to go out of Tampa or Port Canaveral (don’t want to drive all the way to Miami).
Then on Friday she emailed me back saying she found a cruise sailing during our anniversary, that was exactly on budget! So yesterday morning I called her and we placed our deposit to hold our cabin! We set up monthly payments, and it will be all paid off in July, then we set sail October 1st. (If you need a travel agent, call Ruth @ Adventures in Travel, she made it soooo easy!)
So we are officially going on a 5-night cruise to Grand Cayman & Cozumel for our 5-year anniversary! …
