WHO DECIDED WOMEN COULD ASK MEN TO MARRY IN A LEAP YEAR? ~ Legend has it St. Brigid of Kildare, a fifth-century Irish Catholic nun, went to St. Patrick asking for help. She was overcome with worry when so many young girls kept coming to her despondent and crying because their Irish boyfriends were too bashful to ask them to get married. Ireland's lasses wanted to marry and have babies while Irish lads wanted to take walks, hold hands and drink ale. St. Brigid had an idea. She asked St. Patrick if it would be acceptable during Leap Years, and only on Leap Day, for young women with bashful suitors to propose they marry. Surprisingly St. Patrick agreed it was a reasonable request. The only problem with this folk tale, according to Encyclopedia Britannica, is that St. Patrick died when Brigid was 9 years old. And no one knows for sure if they ever actually met, or if St. Brigid was even a real person. What we do know 16 centuries later is that you'll not find a better price than $999 per person to take your sweetheart on a cruise for 8 Days / 7 Nights to 4 historical ports of call in the Caribbean. You will sail round trip from Ft. Lauderdale, FL in the middle of winter on the 2018 #1 rated cruise lines by Cruise Critic: Celebrity. This Leap Year cruise fare includes all tips pre-paid valued at $116 per passenger. The 4 colorful ports of call are San Juan, where all public services have been restored following Hurricane Maria; Charlotte Amalie, named for the King of Denmark's consort; Punta Cana, with 10 glorious golf courses; and Nassau with its world famous straw market just a short walking distance from any ship that docks at Nassau. It's interesting to note that San Juan's Catholic Cathedral, named for John the Baptist, was built in 1540 with white sand and stucco. It's in the glorious central plaza of Old San Juan and is the second oldest Catholic cathedral in the Western Hemisphere. But it's not so famous for its size and opulence as it is for its medieval structure which remains structurally sound after five centuries (shown at top). In Charlotte Amalie, the capital city of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, stands the Synagogue of St. Thomas. It's the second oldest Jewish synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. And just down the street is Frederick Lutheran Church, the oldest Lutheran Church in the same Hemisphere. Having all these religious sites built so early in the Caribbean's history is amazing since the islands early on were filled with pirates and crime. If your sweetheart loves history, playing golf, drinking ale and swimming in beaches with crystal clear water this is the cruise for the two of you. All deposits fully refundable 'til Nov. 5, 2019. Prices only go up as time goes by. Don't wait. Call to make your reservations today.

"Thank you for setting up all the great cruises you do for us. It is wonderful to know we have the option to cancel if need and that we will get a 100% deposit refund without being penalized. Although, it is only one of the many reasons why we cruise with Fun & Fitness." Robin Vogel, Annandale, VA.

"Fun & Fitness ROCKS!" Tori Reiber, Spokane Valley, WA.
