We may do another cruise, but we have those two booked.

Happy Sailing!
We just added Celebrity Reflection on March 30. Anyone else onboard?

Hi Rod and Barry; you must have seen the roll call thread I started, yesterday! Actually, our cruise will be from Zurich to Amsterdam. We are looking forward to it and we understand it will be totally different from the Ocean Cruises we have taken. Which ship were you guys on? Thanks for the other info you provided as I still have a lot to learn about river cruising!

Transatlantic: Miami to Barcelona in April for my 30th birthday on NCL Epic. Pretty new relationship here so wish us luck in a cramped interior cabin for 11 days :-P TAs are great opportunities to meet people outside your normal "comfort zone" though... I love that!

Now looking at booking either the Oasis/Allure for the week of 6/22 or perhaps Alaska finally...! We were looking at all the great fares for Europe that week, but the flights are through the roof, so that knocked those trips out of the picture...

If you book on RCCL (or Celebrity) you can often get airfare at about half price with their "choice air". You can go to choiceair.com and see example rates for specific cruises.

Happy sailing!

I had initially planned on booking NCL Breakaway this summer, but with plans to relocate in August/September, I decided to conserve money and save it for next year. However, a friend conned me into booking a 5 night on Carnival with her... So April 15, we depart on the Paradise for Grand Cayman and Cozumel. It's been over 20 years since I've sailed with Carnival, so not too sure what to expect...

We usually go to those, although frequently we're the only women there. But we get along really well with the guys most of the time. Should be a great cruise! I met someone who was on the one last year who said there were at least 150 LGBT folks onboard - woo hoo! :-)

I've noticed that there are rarely women around for FOD... well that means you'll perhaps stand out so that I can introduce myself. There's a decent group over on the Roll Call, too... seems pretty active. It's gonna be a long 45 days... I'm ready to go NOW!

Sounds like a lot of people have a variety of plans. Kewl!

To our 2013 cruisers congrats. We paid off our England-Iceland cruise on Silverseas and are looking forward to it. July is quite some time off though.
