My husband and I got an amazing deal on a last minute cruise to the Bahamas, and we decided to be spontaneous and book it. Though we’ve travelled pretty extensively, we’ve never taken a cruise together. Usually, we’d prefer to go to one place and really experience it rather than just sit back and “enjoy the ride” to several different short stops along the route, as seems to be the case with taking a cruise.
Now that my oldest is in kindergarten, my parents offered to stay at our house and watch the kids while we went somewhere. This is a first, and we knew we’d be crazy to pass up the generous offer, so we started researching inexpensive last minute getaways, which is how we stumbled upon the cruise option. I’m sure the spectacular deal we got has something to do with the fact that it is still hurricane season. Still, I can’t wait to leave in a few days.
I recently read an interesting article about cruising to Alaska. Have you ever been on a cruise or considered going on one? Where did you or would you go?
