I’m asleep at home in my bed, but my mind is deep in slumber dreaming.

In my dreams, I’m also asleep but instead of my ordinary bed in suburbia; I’m on a cruise to Alaska. Nestled in amongst the luxury linens, I can feel the gentle rocking motion of the waves of the ocean, and I’m smiling as I think about my day spent on the promenade deck watching glaciers and wildlife go past me and then later, I wined and dined on the most exquisite cuisine…

Do you have a dream cruise ?

I know I have a cruise in mind or shall I say MANY cruises in mind!

I’ve been blessed to sail the Caribbean seas multiple times, but my cruise dream would be a luxury voyage to Tahiti, or Alaska. Two very different cruise adventures yes, but both would be unique experiences for us since our usual sailing itinerary involves the Caribbean Islands.

Just thinking about planning a cruise to Tahiti or Alaska makes my cheeks hurt — my smile is THAT big.

If you love to sail the ocean blue as much as I do, then you are going to love this.
