In June of 2008, my boyfriend and I decided to go on a mini vacation. At the time, we were not planning on going overboard; we just wanted a nice little getaway. We decided to go north and take a cruise up to Nova Scotia. We set the date for early July, when the scenery would be the most beautiful. This time was also very close to his birthday, so I thought we could celebrate it on the ship.
The day before his birthday was Captain's Night on the boat. We were dressed up; he was looking sharp in a suit and me in a red dress. After a wonderful meal, we decided to take a stroll on deck. At the back of the deck, he got down on one knee and began to propose. I was taken by surprise; it was so amazing, as it was a clear evening and others were also enjoying the beautiful moon strolling hand in hand. It was surreal!
We went back to the room to find that it was decorated with champagne and roses. Innocense, our room attendant, said that he had never seen two people have so much to celebrate in two days. He had to change the banner saying "Congratulations" to one saying, "Happy Birthday" in less than 24 hours! It was hilarious!
