Original post made by Simply Sterling, San Ramon, on May 1, 2013

To celebrate my 60th birthday my daughter said to me, "Mom, we want to take you on a cruise for your birthday. The whole family can go."

I know the new ships are stable but if it was choppy, I might be miserable. And all that tempting food! It's 10 meals a day with snacks and deserts. I couldn't resist all that super food.
