This is Michelle Rivera. We invited her to come to the girls only cruise with us. She is a young mom with two small children, who never goes out. We were shocked when said yes. Right before we were leaving to the airport, we called here to let her know we were on our way to pick her up. She said she didn't want to go...she didn't want to leave her children...her husband...plus, it was her first time away from CT, first time on a plane and of course, first time on a BOAT!. We pleaded with her to no avail. We all left to the airport sad that she gave into her fears and didn't come. At the airport we get a call saying she changed her mind and that her husband was dropping her off!! (mind you..she lives in Bridgeport, CT and we were at LaGuardia Airport in NY....all checked in). Her husband must have broken all speeding laws....she got to the airport just in time to check in her luggage and throw her on the airplane....GOSH!!! What a start to a vacation!!
