Do you have one? I have been conjuring up images of my dream vacation for years. Here’s a peek into how it will be like:
It’s going to be a cruise vacation on board one of those fabulous Royal Caribbean Cruise Line ships. Better yet, maybe we can get onto one of those “Love Boats” as popularized by the Princess Cruise Lines. Husband and I (yep, no kids allowed!) will go island-hopping all over the Carribean – basking under the sun on those beautiful white-sand beaches, experiencing exotic tastes and sounds, hunting for fabulous finds at local markets. In between island-hopping, we will share romantic sunsets and spectacular sunrises on the ship’s deck. (Years ago, I discovered that no other sunrise view beats that on a ship’s deck! It is simply marvelous.) This vacation has “mushy” written all over!
Or: the whole family can spend Christmas (okay, okay, kids allowed this time) on a two-week cruise in the Mediterranean region aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship. It would be great to expose the kids to the rich history and culture of the Mediterranean – visiting ancient ruins at Pompeii and historical landmarks at Alexandria. It would be an adventure the family will never forget.
Vacation cruises like these will surely cost a lot. But I’m sure there’s a cruise package that will fit into my budget. Besides, I’ve still much time – 20 years to be exact – to prepare 😛 . Really, the way hub is slaving away at work today, I think we will need an extravagant cruise vacation when the time comes to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Anyway, weren’t we taught to dream big dreams? So let me.
