Ok, so if we post everyone's suggestions for date, ship, and itinerary here and get some discussion going maybe we'll find something that will work for everyone....:):):)

My first suggestion would be a cruise out of NY, since it seems like the logical starting place and easy for everyone to get to....:)

Leaving from NY sounds good. I am flexible.:)
What year are we considering doing this?

Make a suggestion...

Most of us are booked for January 2012....and prices have gone up since booking, so cancelling and re-booking as a group most likely wouldn't save us any $$$.

We would be willing to book another cruise for 2012, if everyone else wants to?

Then it would depend on how many of us cruise more than once a year.
We could book another cruise for 2012 or How about we look at January/Feb 2013, pending on how many have already booked and the difference in prices?

Hi guys,

I vote for Alaska on Princess summer 2013.............anyone willing to travel outside our comfort zone?

We could also do January /February 2013.....out of New york if the 1st one isn`t good

We were planning S.M. then......but who knows, maybe we can all get off in St Maarten , stay at my time share for 1-2 weeks then get back on the ship and head back to New York:D:p ....run that by your pcc:rolleyes:;).

Stay well all,
Debbi

We won't be able to make a summer cruise, Steve really can't get away for more than a weekend from May 1st.....until December 8th.


Now if we're all going to accidentally miss the ship in St. Maarten we better buy the good travel insurance. ;)

I figured it might not work with his job but I had to ask:(

People do get on the ships at ports, my friend said a bunch of people got newly on her Jewel cruise in San Juan?????:confused:

But it would be a stretch

we would maybe skip using our time share 2013 year.....Our 2012 Hawaii may use up alot of my time..... right now we have lot`s of friends interested in going with us

but then 2014 would be No cruise for Vin

I have no limit to my vacation time other then Vin being jealous

I mentioned to Matgarita tonight that you had to take your Alaska cruise on Princess in 2013 where you had changed from 2012 to cruise with us.....I hate to be a stick in the mud but like Margaret said I would find it very hard to cruise that time of year....I would love to tho....

we do have 2-3-2013 booked but that is so far out we could cancel that one and rebook as a group........but lets keep talking about it till we come up with a working plan

I`ll have to try again with you on a CLEAN pallate:D

We can't have a cruise without Vin, who would lug all your luggage on and off the ship...:D

I guess I'm on permanent vacation as well, but I don't think Steve's gonna let me near a ship without him...:eek::D:eek:

Steve,
I have No idea what was up with those new people, my friend said the ship was not crowded so who knows what their deal with NCL was?

Margaret,
Yeah luggage would be a problem, it is when I travel with my Mom.

So far Vin lets me go with my MOM cause he doesn`t want to vacation with HER....he will not let me go with other family or friends yet but I am working on him....he would love to just take extra time and go with us but you may get me and my Mom.....Vin`s job has no coverage for vacations now let alone EXTRA time.

Strange how a ship can change so much and others even on the same cruise can have different experiences.

I like Feb out of NY 2013 far enuff out everyone can work on it and its 10daysssssssssssssssssss :D

We also get to choose an amenity......I think OBC would probably work the best for all of us. Other choices included a private happy hour, wine, fruitbasket, ect.

With the OBC we can have our own happy hour........or use it for what ever we want.

Steve and I, and Joy and Ron are booked for 2/3/13.......out of NY on the Pearl. We could definitely cancel and re-book with the group if this is what everyone decides on. Steve and I are quite flexible.
