My very first cruise!

My in-laws are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year.  Good for them, right?  Lucky for me, they are taking all their kids and grandkids on a cruise this summer to celebrate.  It will be my very first cruise: Chuck's and the kids' too!  Unfortunately, we received word that the cruise ship we were booked on for this summer was this one:



Do you recognize it?  It's the one that had a fire that shut down its power and had to be towed to shore.  Sadly, it is foul, disgusting, smelly, and thoroughly disabled.  Luckily, they are going to get us a different ship for our trip this summer. Still, it makes me a little hesitant to go on a cruise at all.  We will just have to hope for the best.  Therefore, I've chosen not to read the following stories about the nightmare aboard this ship, but you are welcome to read them.  The titles were enough to frighten me:

Disney Cruise is the Best Cruise line ever! Even if you are not going with the kids its still the Best, they even have their own island. If you want the Best go with Disney. The customer service is awesome!

I am going on a royal carribean cruise ship. I have been on Carnival, but the ships are better build. I guess that is why I have to pay more. Have a good trip. Most of the time, there are no problems. Mom

I think it is so neat that you will get to do this as a family! I'm sure you will have a fabulous time and will arrive home safe and sound.
