I'm on the Carnival Spirit, 3 day cruise to nowhere (but really Vancouver to LA :D) on Sept. 20/11.

Then the CC group cruise on Carnival Spirit, 15 days to Hawaii round trip from San Diego on April 13, 2012.

I know there are some Maniacs going with me to Hawaii. Would love to have more Maniacs along with us.

I think everyone already knows this but we're headed to Honolulu to do Hawaii on the Spirit. It's a family and friends cruise with the same captain we just had on the Miracle. Board the ship 4/22 and get off 5/4, just in time to get home, unpack, do laundry and get to San Francisco for a 2 week trip to France with my daughter.

BERMUDA! On the Glory October 16, 2011 - Departs Norfolk,VA at 5pm for 6 glorious days . The only stop is King's Wharf, Bermuda with 3+ sea days. Just a little bit of heaven.

Bill was there 35+ years ago when he was in the Navy - got to spend 6 months there courtesy of "our Uncle". I have never been and am so looking forward to getting there. I am also looking forward to a real British tea time and viewing the architecture, learning more of the history, etc.

Hey Karen and Gary - got any tips on where we should go and what we should see??? Don't want to do shp's tours - would rather explore on our own....

Any takers? We'd love to have more M.O.B. with us.

My next cruise is June 12-18, 2011 on the Carnival Freedom.

I am hoping to go to Europe in 2012 on the Carnival Breeze, but that schedule will not come out for a couple of months, so I have to wait. :(

Nothing in the works yet for us. :(

Will be doing a cruise and land tour Alaska on Princess 2012. Just waiting for the 2012 Alaska dates to come out sometime in April if anyone is interested in joining us. Land portion first (hopefully 4 days land) then southbound cruise. Most probably August.

Other than that no cruises planned. Just going to wing it from here on out. So many great cruises and rates have come out in the past that we had to skip because we already had things planned. No more planning 1 to 2 years out for us anymore. Take our chances on cabins and itins unless it's something absolutely fabulous that we don't want to miss.

We do know that 2013 we plan on doing a river cruise on the Rhine or Danube...want to do the Castles of the Rhine. Have to see what will be. That's my early retirement year! Yippee!!!

What is your train of though here? The Inspiration (it is coming at the end of this year) and the Splendor will be in Los Angeles. The Spirit will be in Alaska for the summer. Why is Carnival going to send another ship to the West Coast in October 2012? :confused:

And the Spirit is leaving for OZ in Oct. so from what John has been saying they will be sending a ship over to take its place.

Everyone is trying to get away from the Mexican Riviera (Celebrity left, Royal Caribbean left, HAL has scaled down its Mexican Riviera cruises), why would Carnival want to have two ships going to the Mexican Riviera?

And why is Australia "OZ"? Seattle and OZ are the emerald cities.

We are joining Poom and Bill on Oct. 16 to Bermuda from Norfolk. Guess I'd better get a ticker going.

Morgan wants to look at something for Feb. 2012 as well. He kind of wants to go visit his cousin who lives in Belize for two weeks instead of cruising. His cousin has a hotel about 70 miles northwest of Belize City. I'm not that interested in spending two weeks but we'll have to see.
For the price of the flights, we could be cruising !

We have a short 4 day planned in just a few weeks. As many of you already know, we had booked early saver for the Miracle B2B so we have two cruises to use up - so thought this would be a good little get away. We will make it into a visit to see MIL - she will be 89 this year and BIL and SIL. On the way back coming through Vegas.........

Thought about the NCL cruise, but decided against it. Great price and all, but I have a few friends who have not had good experiiences as of late with NCL so decided to pass on that one. May do the Birthday cruise with Tracy and Tonie - thinking about that one.

WooHoo, just booked our Alaska Land and Sea adventure on the Sapphire Princess for Aug 12, 2012. 13 nights of touring and cruising. What a great itin it is. Now I feel better, have a real cruise on the books. :D

2 nights in Fairbanks, 2 nights in Denali, 2 nights in Mt. McKinley at Princess lodges and the Fairbanks Hotel, some excursions are included and rail and motorcoach transportation. Then 7 nights Southbound cruise sailing the Alaska Gulf and the Inside Passage and visiting the Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchican. We end in Vancouver.

Said I wasn't going to book anything so far out anymore but just had to do it. Why don't some of you guys join us?

Already thinking about a second visit to Alaska in the next couple of years but to do Prudhoe and the Artic Circle and dip my toes in the Artic Ocean! How cool would that be to say you've been to the Artic. (after this winter I must be nuts thinking about going cold!)

I think we are pretty much done with the Carribean...time to see the rest of the world for me. Not that I wouldn't go back to sun and sand...just isn't going to be our priority anymore.

Looking forward to our shortie 4 night June cruise on the Glory but gee, that just didn't feel like a real cruise. Should be fun though and relaxing. Not rushing to do anything for 4 days. Just going to walk the local area and visit the Market in St. John then back to the ship and enjoy while it's empty of cruisers.
