To all you cruisers...I have to know, how did you get away to fullfill your dreams? By that I mean, I know some of you are wealthy, and some of you are retired, but what about the others? I think about going daily (if not hourly), but in my situation it''s just not possible for at least another 4 years. At that time, I would be leaving a job at 50 years of age, 5 years short of getting paid medical benefits.I try to rationalize this by thinking "the longer I wait, the stronger the chance that I won''t ever get to go will be."Are there any cruisers out there that faced a similar dilemma? Do you have medical insurance? Are there any insurance companies that offer attractive rates for cruisers? (insurance companies offering discounts -I have to laugh at that one myself.)Anyway, to me this is a pretty big obstacle to overcome.Any advice or opinions would be appreciated.Thanks!
