Default NCL Jewel and Carnival Conquest

My partner and I are booked on NCL Jewel, 11/10/13, out of New Orleans in conjunction with Sweet. Any other "family" aboard? Anyone else ventured out with Sweet, if so, how was your experience? I am a newbie cruiser but my partner has before.

We're also going on the Carnival Conquest, 4/21/13, to celebrate our son's 16th birthday. Anyone booked on that one by chance?

I hope you guys enjoy the Jewel. We got married on her and sailed out of NYC in July 2011 to Florida & the Bahamas. She is a beautiful ship and easy to get to know.

We are going on the Carnival Splendor out of NYC to the Bahamas 3/31. We loved our 1st cruise (Honeymoon in Oct) so much that we are bringing our 13 year olds with us on this trip. I kept wanting to share the experience with them!

Hey all. Am on the Voyager of the Seas leaving Sydney on December 8 for the 14 day cruise around New Zealand. It looks like an amazing cruise. Am traveling by myself and would love to have some travel buddies to hand out with. Looking forward to hearing from you and having an amazing trip.

Smile We love cruising!

My wife, Laura, and I 'discovered' the value and fun of cruising last year on RCCL Oasis. Since then we cruised the RCCL Allure with Friends and Family in September for our honeymoon. NOW, we're setting sail on my birthday, December 22 for our 'private' honeymoon on Celebrity Reflection. Anyone else joining the cruise?

Default Cruise with Everyone

We are cruising on two sailings so far in 2013. One for four days on RCCL Librrty of the Seas Feb.7-11 from Ft. Lauderdale and back with a stop in Cosumel and then a 15 day in Mar. On the Celebrity Eclipse for 15 days.
We have never gone on Olivia and don't plan to because we like to be with everyone and you get more for your buck this way. We have been cruising since the late 90s.

We usually plan at least one cruise a year and we'd love to be in contact with other women who regularly schedule "non-lesbian only" cruises.
Out next cruise is 2/25/07 on the Island Princess to Hawaii.
If you're out there, let us know. We can share experiences and potentially plan something together.
Guys...you're not excluded. We'd love to know of you're going to be on any future cruises so we can meet.
We just learned about FOD on our last cruise. Didn't know it existed prior to that.
Good sailing!

Default Is anyone going on the Eclipse in March 2013 ?

It's a 15 day cruise and I have a great travel agent (smartcruiser.com) Marsha. I/ we saved over $1000.00 each with her.
Come join us.
We are also going on a cruise on Feb 7-11. It's a quickie but relaxing on Liberty of the Seas out of Ft. lauderdale. Freedom Travel and donating money to Florida Equality Pride. It will be a Gay Old Time as more than 60 rooms have been booked.

Default Join us on ....

Liberty of the Seas Feb. 7-11,2013 we love to cruise too. We are in Boca. We are friendly and most times we hand out with the guys. Most of the times the women are so possessive of there partners that they can only talk to each other.
We will be together 35 yrs. and that has never been our problem. Come join us for 4 days of relaxation with another 80+ from here there and every where in Fl. Supporting Florida Equality Pride. Call Freedom Travel wilton manor Drive, Ft. lauderdale.
