As you may be aware, I’ve been authoring a series of posts on cruising basics over the last many weeks. I haven’t necessarily kept to a regular schedule, nor have I linked the posts together. Not sure what I was thinking, or not thinking, but in any event, these posts are now linked. Further, this is going to be a regular feature for a bit as I take you from researching, booking, and experiencing your cruise. I’ve been promising a post for a few weeks, MJ on Cruising – Will I Be Bored on Board? That’s easy for me to answer, “no, only if you want to be” but there’s more to the story. I’m canning that post, for now. My next post in the series will be MJ on Cruising – Day 1. And not only will it be about Day 1 of the cruise, you’ll be experiencing it live….with me as I board Monarch of the Seas for her last cruise with Royal Caribbean on March 29, 2013. Frankly, I had no idea that I was going on a cruise soon until last weekend. I thought this would be fun for you and me. So next in the series, we’ll be boarding a cruise together. In the meantime, please check out my other “The Series” posts on cruising.
