Talking Dec 16 2012 on Allure of the Seas

Hi fellow cruisers, my name is Fred, I am looking forward to Sailing Dec 16, 2012 aboard Allure of the Seas on a Western Caribbean Cruise from Fort Lauderdale Florida with a group of friends and would love to know if any other witnesses will be sailing on that ship at that time as well. Additionally I am thinking of making this a double header with a cruise the week before or after. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear about it. I think associating with a group of fellow brothers and sisters makes the cruise 10X better. This is also my first time on a Norwegian ship. I am 41 and single so I am curious if this cruise line or ship would appeal to me? I have done about 10 on Carnival and absolutely loved them! Would love to hear your thoughts.

On my last post I said it was a Norwegian ship. I don't know where I got that. It is RoyalCaribbean. Anyways, I have never been on this line of boats either. This ship looks amazing! I am pretty sure this will be a cruise to remember, as long as I don't get lost on it...

Hi justcruizin and docbowtie,

I wish we could all get together as some point. There will be 23 of us traveling will include some couples, families and singles. This will be our 3rd time with cruising with Royal Caribbean cruise lines. We absolutely love this cruise line

M$M7 your cruise extravaganza sounds great too! Leaving from NY sound very convience for us seeing that we are just a state over about maybe a 4-5 hour drive. Something for us to think about

Well friends if we don't get a chance to meet up, please keep safe and have a wonderful cruise adventure.

Please keep in touch, we might all be able to cruise together one day!!

We just finished a full transit Panama Canal cruise, Ft Lauderdale to LA. It was great!!

November is usually the most 'cost effective' time of the year to do something like this.

Email for more details!!

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

My husband and I are from California. We are on the January 20, 2014 sailing of the Norwegian Gem 9 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. I would love to know if any brothers and sisters will be on this sailing with us? We know of a witness who offers excursions to brothers and sisters coming into the Dominican Republic on cruise ships for the day if interested.

Hope to hear from you.

Default Hi Everyone! 8-3-13 oasis cruise

Hello! My husband and I are Jehovah's Witnesses (Hampton Roads area in Virginia). We are in our 30's and booked Oasis of the Seas for 8-3-13 kind of last minute so we didn't want to burden any friends by asking them to get together the money in a short amount of time. If there are any other Witnesses going on this cruise we'd love to meet you! Maybe we could do a study together on Sunday. I hope everyone has safe and fun trips!
