Do you have favorite cruise vacation stories to tell?
Perhaps you went "down under" visiting the magnificent Great Barrier Reef or cruised the crystal waters of the Caribbean.
One of our favorie cruise vacation stories took place on the Celebrity Mercury in March of 2007. We were inivited to dine at the Captain's Table with several other couples. It was a very special and gracious evening. The dinner included magnificent food, fabulous service, wonderful conversation and at the conclusion the Captain presented each of the the ladies with a long stemmed rose! Doesn't get more romantical, does it? And with the laughter at the table, we know the Captain had a great time too!
This was followed by an outstanding lunch on the beach on china no less along with great entertainment. Oh did I mention this took place on a private island called Hunting Caye!!
Feel free to write as much as you want and if you have pictures to illustrate your adventures, so much the better. We would love to see your photos and put your story on the web for you.
