My wife keeps nagging me to go on a cruise, but I'm one of those people that gets easily bored.
Is there plenty to keep you occupied?
I used to work as a commissioning Engineer on oil and Gas platforms back in the 80's and have seen way to may horizons!

I have just got back from a short cruise , we went on the independent of the seas , it’s a vast ship with more entertainment than you can shake a stick at ::g
I was very anti cruises as I hate the “ fun fun fun “ element but I was pleasantly supprised , if you want the clubs and party nights it’s there but if you want a nice relaxing evening after a nice meal and good bottle of wine it’s there as well , Id highly recommend giving it a go ::g

Perhaps its just me, but I hate modern cruise ships. They always remind me of floating egg-boxes and not elegant at all. Can't imagine anything I'd hate more than going on holiday in a massive mobile block of flats, no matter how luxuriously appointed.

Glad you have your trip sorted date-wise Leslie. Now to get some digs and meet-ups pencilled in I guess.
