Todd & I love to cruise. We started cruising together in 2006 and have experienced some wonderful adventures and moments I will never forget. However, it was my first cruise that embedded itself in my DNA. It feels like it was just yesterday.
It was 1998, I was about to start my senior year at college and was living in San Diego. It was July and the ship was the Fantasy. It was a 4-day Bahamas cruise out of Canaveral, Florida. As the taxi got closer to the port, a large white object on the horizon had started to form and grow. When we pulled up next to it, I had never seen anything that big. Staring at it, I started to imagine where had it gone, what was it like, how do you drive something this big? She was like a giant magic carpet that floated on the color aqua.
I still get goosebumps to this day when I hear “Fantasy” by Earth Wind and Fire…I was standing on the top deck as we started to pull away. That song was playing and it was an amazing feeling as I felt a cruise ship move for the first time. Land just faded away. And so did the realities. For the next four days, I was in a perfect bliss. That was it. I knew right then and there that I was hooked.
In a strange coincidence, our first stop was Grand Bahama Island. I took the shopping and island tour and ended up taking a photo standing next to a chain-link fence where a hotel and another small building were in the process of being built. In the photo I am between the two and they are in the background as is the beach and ocean. That smaller building became Our Lucaya Isle of Capri Casino. Just 7 years later, I would be the Marketing Manager and would be living and working on that island. Crazy how life is…You never know where life is going to take you.
Now, 14 cruises later, my voyages have taken me to amazing places, brought me closer to my friends and family and provided incredible adventures. When I disembark, I can’t wait to do it all again.
Through my stories, photos and videos, I have inspired others to try it and now I divide the world into two categories…those who have cruised and felt it and those who haven’t cruised YET. That is why we started this agency; I want the world to find their BLISS, their “Fantasy.” And we are here to help you do just that.
I was lucky to meet my best friend and partner Todd, who has spent more than 20 years in Finance & Accounting. Todd grew up along the Texas Gulf Coast not far from the port of Galveston. The coastal beaches and abundant lakes were always a frequent gathering place for family & friends. Todd’s first cruise was aboard the Carnival Conquest in 2006 and he became hooked. Since then, we have cruised together with a focus on exploring the islands of the Caribbean.
Recently, we started to notice that friends and family were frequently asking us for cruise advice and we realized that our knowledge could help others, so now more than 20 years and 20 cruises later, we decided to establish Aqua Breeze Vacations LLC.
Our goal is to introduce everyone to the joy the Caribbean. We believe that “There are so many different cruise lines, ships, islands and resort destinations that there is one for every personality and adventure.” We want to plan or help you plan your next vacation. Aqua Breeze Vacations LLC, where we make planning your next vacation… A Breeze.
