Well, Mrs. N=1 and I have discussed our financial situation, and while we aren’t exactly destitute, we are in the process of buying a new house, and we will be moving for the second time in less than a year shortly after the deal is complete.
To complicate things more, I started a new job in June (which prompted the first move), and the vacation arrangements are a bit strange. Basically, in order to go on the cruise, I would have to use “personal” days because I can’t take my full vacation accrual until after I’ve been there a full year.
That, along with the fact that this year’s cruise is on a much more expensive ship than any of the previous cruises, has led us to decide not to go on the 2016 Low-Carb Cruise.
It was a tough decision. We like cruising, and we have been on the LCC for several years running. We like the group. I will miss doing interviews and talking with kindred spirits.
