Re: Just Do It--You're Not Getting Any Younger
I have taken short cruises all of my life, hampered by jobs, mortgages, bills, children, etc. When I finally took off and cruised for eight months a few years ago, I realized I should have started doing it when I was a lot younger.
If I had to do it over again, I would save like hell from the time I was 18, and go when I was 20 or 21, in whatever boat I could get for myself.
Plenty of time to come back, and start the grind later. My next cruise isn't scheduled for when I want to go, it's scheduled for when I can afford it, about six years from now.
I think the Pardey's summed it up perfectly. "Go small, go simple, go now."
