Subject: RE: cruising

Altho I am not a cruiser, my mom always thought it was the best holiday in the world. One summer, my darling daughter escorted mom on a cruise to Alaska &they both enjoyed it. Mom loved the dress-up &the (yes, bland) food; my daughter took advantage of shore excursions for rafting, kayaking & mountain biking. They chose Holland America, although I think World Explorer might have been my daughter's preference.

My son &daughter-in-law escorted mom on many Caribbean cruises; the kids love the dress-up nights, the cabaret shows, the dancing as well as beachy days. Mom loved the shopping. They cruised Carnival, Holland America &Princess; the latter was their favorite.
