It's nice to be a virgin at 69, and this Caribbean cruise did it for me. It met my criteria beautifully:1) few children, 2) almost no lines, 3) 24/7 really fast room service, and 4) leisurely linen service dining with dishes I had no intention of preparing ever. As an added bonus, boarding from Galveston with the Medallion meant less than 15 minutes from being dropped off to sitting comfortably in the waiting area. Once on the ship, I was gently herded to the correct muster station and 20 minutes after that, I was seated in the DaVinci dining room feasting on an appetizer of Genoa salami and roast vegetables dining with seasoned cruisers, all in my age range. They were passionate about cruising and offered lots of advice. I'm hooked.

The internet was great most of the time,so I did get to have a few teletherapy sessions on zoom on board. I'lll be back in March to try telecommuting. Wish me luck!
