Cruise Control

We all grew up crooning Celine Dion’s “My Heart will go on” from the movie Titanic, and besides having a crush on Leonardo and cursing Kate for letting him lose his life the one thing that fascinated me and I am sure a lot of other people was the ship itself. It looked so grand and luxurious, the most romantic thing a girl could dream off (besides Leo’s lips ofcourse). Anyway that was 1997, where going on a cruise seemed like a fairytale, atleast to me who had even decided I will get married on a ship, I still want to if I do ever get married, well atleast sail to my honeymoon destination, oh well fine go on a vacation with my girl friends, basically a cruise has been my fantasy since 1997. Anyway move ahead two decades and in 2012 a cruise does not seem like such a distant dream, thanks to company’s like Royal Caribbean International.
