If you switch to the Explorer, we will be getting off when you get on. We leave Mar 5.

Maybe if Royal brings a new ship to Bayonne, we will be able to get together and cruise as a group again. That would be fun. Rumor is the new Sunshine Class ship, but I'm not holding my breath.

We'll wave. I wish they would bring another ship. Don't get me wrong, I love The Explorer. Just would be nice to do something new. Unlike Celebrity only coming for 1 year. It's the only reason we bought the future cruise.

We should look at March of 2014 and all try to plan a time when we can cruise together again! Joni - you will have to let us know what weeks you will have off that time of year!

I would love it if Royal brought a new ship to Bayonne. I like sailing out of Bayonne for the convenience. No flying and no overnight hotel stay!

I'm with ya. We have $200 dollars on a Celebrity cruise but it would cost us 4 to 5 times that to get to Florida, hotels even if we drive.

Next year they moved us back to where we were so March 16 and we need to be back by April 1st. Hope it stays the last two weeks but it could move up a week again. We won't know until late fall early winter. It would be fun to cruise again with everyone.

I just changed from a 10 night in March to the 7 night Bahamas cruise on 2/10/13. I couldn't pass on the price for a D2 balcony. I can't believe I'm doing a 7 night cruise and Mimi will be on this cruise. Check it out the price is right.

So far she's booked, but like Patty said you know Mimi. I hope she doesn't cancel. We got a really great price that I couldn't pass up. Actually looking forward to it since we haven't been to the Bahamas in a long time.

No. They are not doing anymore NJ sailings. And nothing out of Florida in the summer. So that leaves us March from Florida or San Juan or just letting it go. Thought maybe we could find a short one from Miami or something because we will be down there this summer. No luck.

That stinks that you would have to lose it but I wound up losing mine. When I cancelled my Silihouette they didn't even offer to move it somewhere else and I never thought to ask.

When I moved it from this March to next the guy said to just call back if I have to move it again. Did you cancel in time to get the deposit back? Is it 3 months out? I made sure I did it before final payment was due. That stinks if they didn't offer it to you. They should have suggested moving it instead of canceling.

Posting to see what you are all up to. Haven't been any posts since early May and I know you are all planning cruises. Ann did you cruise to Bermuda this past May. Patty hope you are doing better after your surgery. Stay cool everyone.
