For my 50th birthday I am going on the Royal Caribean ship Independance of the Seas. Its the Italian Mediterranean 14 night cruise, 26th September 2009. Its 8 weeks to sailaway and I am starting this blog having been inspired by Around the World in 80 Dresses. Well mines just 2 weeks but I'd like to share my preperations and adventure on this blog. My birthday is on the 29th September & in Lisbon. Any tips will be very welcome. I hope you find my preparations humourous!
