Pre-Cruise Dinner Parties
While cruising with Windstar last month, I met a woman named Janet from Mississauga, Canada who told me about a great tradition that she and her friends started when they began traveling on cruises together:
Before a cruise, they have two dinners. The first one is to assign a different destination or destinations to a person or couple to research, depending on how many people are going and the number of ports visited. The second dinner, which takes place just before the cruise, is to go over the gameplan and all the research everyone’s brought back to the table.
I heard Janet’s group talking on the tender ride into Portofino and I was envious of how much information they had. I think it’s a brilliant way to prepare for a trip and build excitement, don’t you?!
