we always go there. it's set in an old train. wonderful food.
I don't do theme parks if I can help it!

Oh and in Tampa.. there is Ybor city, Spaghetti warehouse, and Tampa bay brewing company.

Seems I'm on a food theme this morning!!!
I love Ybor!! I was supposed to move to Tampa 3 weeks after I met my husband but decided I'd see if the relationship would grow. Sure enough we are together 8 years later. His whole extended family lives in New Port Richey but we never seem to go down, they always come up.
Is it possible to just make a day at Cocoa Beach? Like spending the whole day at the beach and being able to way there, etc.? Is love to go to Clearwater but I'm really pushing my luck trying to get a couple extra days in lol.

yes, you can spend a whole day at Cocoa Beach. Drive to Ron Jon's. Parking is free.. leave the car.. walk one block.. you are at the beach. Plenty to see and do.

I want to go see Clearwater to go to the aquarium, but haven't felt up to it. Maybe next weekend.

Thanks so much Sherri!! I will email you later. It's beautiful out here and I want to mow the backyard then lay in the pool. I love Clearwater although I've never been to the aquarium there. I'm a beach person so I'm fine at/best treatment water all day long
Unfortunately the hubby paid bills this morning and is acting grumpy since I'm not working. Hopefully he cheers up by the time we book the airfare and stuff later today

I am also a beach person too.. give me toes in the water.. yep!!1 the only reason I said the aquarium is where the dolphine from "dolphine tale" is.

We may go soon. I keep saying that.. but haven't got there. today we went to Lakeridge winery for the open house/ grape stomping. I did win (wow a free t-shirt)! but it is so much fun, plus it was a fund raiser for Hospice, so it went to a good cause. did the free wine tasting.. I just love their wines.

Our daughter and s-i-l came over with dinner for a belated fathers day. it's all good.!

Glad to see not everyone jumped ship. I have to admit, I just stop by every few months or so. I wonder what Mike is up to?

Amy - I would recommend renting a car out of MCO and dropping it off in Port Canaveral. It's so much easier. I used Thrifty the last time. I think there is another one even closer to the port. I rent cars from the port to MCO as well. With gas its usally cheaper than a shuttle or transfer.

You could do Tampa first, and Cocoa Beach at the tail end before you cruise since it's close by.

Norwaylin - I loved cruising on the Norway. It's so sad the ship is no more. We had one of those tiny steerage cabins with a porthole. There was enough room for a double bed and 1 person to walk around it. To get from one place to another on the ship it was up a flight of stairs...over.. down a flight of stairs... etc.. no direct cut through. Still we have fond memories. If you are thinking of Southern Carribean, and you have time, may I suggest the Emerald Princess 10 night? It goes to the places you mentioned plus more. I love Antigua. Best pricing is between the last week of November and before Christmas.

Go Reds! Wouldn't it be crazy if the world series teams would be from Ohio?

I loved the Norway. She was a very classy ship and we had a good time. When you wanted elegance, there was the International Lounge. My friend and I had an Inside Superior Stateroom on the Viking Deck -- The cabin number was V-216. My friend, Elaine, and I had two single beds with a nightstand in the middle. We were talking to each other the first night about what we had done that day and what we wanted to do the next day when the ship pitched. We almost fell on the floor. It's a good thing that nightstand was there. We experienced the ship rocking and thought each ship would do that. We really missed it on the later cruises. We also had a dressing table and chair in our room which was great because we are both short. I am 5' 1" and she was 4' 10". The mirror in our bathroom was high and would have been difficult to use trying to put on make-up. We were both disappointed to hear that the Norway was no longer in service. Elaine gave me the name "Norwaylin" when I told her I needed to pick a unique email address. I think that was in 1995 and I have kept it that long.

As far as the Southern Caribbean, I will check out the ship you recommended. A friend of mine was on it about five years ago and loved it. I liked all the ports, but won a few dollars at a casino in Antigua near the ship. Instead of money, I exchanged my points for a hurricane glass with the name of the casino on it. I think it was King's Casino. Is it still there? I still have my glass and make my fruit drinks in it during the winter while I dream about cruising. (Yellow Bird is my favorite) LOL.

When I was in Sarasota about 10 years ago (when the Reds were in Spring Training), a reporter was asking people questions. When he heard that I was from Cleveland (Indians fan), he moved on to the next tourist. I was only there to try and get an autograph for my nephew. They were behind two fences and it was impossible to get even a decent picture through the fences.

I am another of those stop by once in a while types. I guess this is the while.

I did look at the last couple of dozen pages...gators, goodbyes and miscellaneous. Someone said they remember the Browns way back in the Kosar days. I remember when Otto Graham started! That's a couple hundred years ago,I think.

I haven't been on Cruise Critic much at all in the past many months. I just got back since we are planning a Hawaii round trip cruise in December. We have done it before, but my BIL and SIL wanted to go on it if we would go with them. It took about three seconds of mild arm twisting to get us to agree. Since I was on that cruise's roll call I thought I would stop by.

I guess the main reason I do not come here more often is that there is very little cruise in Buckeye Cruisers.

Wish I could say I have a cruise planned, but not this year. I may get to visit my friends in Sarasota this year, but not sure when. If I do, it may be for about a month. I would prefer to go in the lousy February weather, but not sure yet if that is possible. Now that I am not working, I don't have a lot of extra cash. I'll need to get some temp work to "subsidize" my trips.

Hi all, again. I've been "off board" for awhile (both the chat board and on board a ship...) I did take a shortie with my parents and nieces last year on the Majesty. It was a lot different but a lot of fun travelling with kids!

As you can see in my siggy, we're gearing up for our first Carnival cruise and looking forward to it. RCCL just doesn't offer what we want anymore, so we're trying a different line. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

DH is still scheduling large machines in a plastics corporation. I'm no longer a 2nd grade teacher but found myself as the resident "tech geek" at school. I'll still be with the students, just teaching them how to use technology for good, not evil.

My herb garden is just about dead, the pond by the house has completely dried up, and I haven't been able to go for a nice long run in a couple weeks. BLAH! I love summer, but the dry is getting to me. Here's hoping for a couple thundershowers today. We fared pretty well in the last huge storm. We lost a few plants and one of our large trees. We got our power back in 24 hours, unlike much of the town and surrounding areas that were out for 4 to 5 days. One friend didn't have power until a week later.

I'm running the Color Run in Columbus this weekend. I'll have to post pictures as I'm sure they'll be interesting, to say the least! Good to see this thread still kicking!

I'm trying to keep it alive! My herb garden is doing great. I have cut off a bunch, hung it and dried it, and using it in cooking. I know fresh is best, but I have so much!

Which Carnival ship are you doing, and when?

I've also dried a lot. My basil is still going strong. I gave up tring to keep the oregano from flowering but it's still pretty tasty. I've cut down the horehound, lemon balm, and tarragon (3x) and they're trying to come back up. *sigh* Such a dry year.

Liberty in a few weeks. Grand Turk caught our eye.

Hi, been cruising for about 15 years and just joined Cruise Critic. Maybe just a tad slow on the uptake.
Two cruises this year and planing on 2013 Feb on NCL Dawn out of Tampa. Frist time off Celebrity. Main reason we (wife) love Costa Maya and Celebrity quit crusing there last year.
Fingers crossed for NCL trip.

welcome Chevy.What part of Ohio? Hubby and I grew up in Akron, but have since transplanted to Florida. Glad you found this thread. I love keeping in touch with my Buckeye Buddies!

Welcome Chevy 1949. I live in Parma Heights and joined this group last year. I am hoping for a cruise in 2013 and maybe talk my friends into it. They are from Ohio, but live in Bradenton/Sarasota now.
