LOL, there is a first time for everything... CruiSing that is.

We are well travelled guys with a 9 year old son. However we have never taken a "real" cruise before. We have been on the local Casino boats, but never a vacation like this.

We have done all the top 25 things to do from everywhere so I think we are well prepared. I think some excitement and mystery of the "first time" will make it a little better anyway. Just no surprises that turn into regrets.

We would like to meet some other cool people to show us around. And while we are on Allure maybe have dinner and have some really good times. Any suggestions from people that have done the RC West Caribbean cruise would also be appreciated.

Finding out a lot of good information here, thank you all for that.

Hey Joe:

I am not going to be on your cruise but having sailed both the Allure and the Oasis, I am telling you that the three of of you are going to have a great time. Your son will love all of the activities.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Juan
