|Cruising is the best vacation!
My husband, Greg, loves planning cruises. We have been going on cruises regularly for the last 5 years. He has become quite the cruise expert. When anyone has questions about going on a cruise or finding airfare they always contact him!

We have found that it’s fun to do things together but also we have been with
groups where we split off and do “our own thing” and then get back together at
dinner time and discuss the fun adventures of the day.
hours from Disneyland. We love Disney and everything about it. But we always
like to ask our friends who drive to Disneyland and spend about a week there
about how their trip was. The common response is, “Oh it is so good to be home”.
It’s good to be home? What??? I thought it was the happiest place on earth? They seem to highlight, long exhausting days, long lines, whining children, and
high food prices. Well, when you travel with me on a cruise ship, it’s
