I think so Ann. I posted the last old one it appears.
I hope people look for us here. There seem to be only a limited number who are still chatting. However, if some want to think about a reunion cruise they may want to come back. Or for chatting abou the Baltic or wherever down the road...

Will you post over on your Australia roll call that we are here as there are many old Dreamers and Magic people on that one. Thanks.

I am not sure if we are supposed to continue in this thread or the one above it that has all our old ones.

I hope people think to look here. Next week we should hear baout Carnival's plans for Europe. I hope they just announce it and not open up bookings yet. I want some time to think about things. Sometimes I book too far ahead and then change my mind.

Hope eveybody has a nice new year. i am not going anywhere tonight. Lettei

Hi Sallie and Michael, how's it going? Are you thinking about a Baltic or N Europe cruise?
I am looking forward to the Breeze TA. What have you got in mind for another cruise/trip?

Hi Loretta, we're doing good and I hope you are too.

We booked the Pride for this coming October and yes, hopefully we can do the Baltic in 2013 if Carnival goes there. If not then we are looking at cruising to Hawaii. Would love to do the Breeze TA but don't think it's in our future.

Hope you have a great new year.

Default Baltic, N Europe, whatever in Europe.....

Seem to be a lot of people chattering on the regular Carnival chat board about 2 Carnivals ship in Europe in 2013.
I sure hope the itineraries are announced but not open yet for booking. Need lots of time to think about what to do.
That could make for interesting transatlantics too.
Wonder what will be announced on the 5th?

Still waiting on the new loyalty plan too.
Happy new year!
What's everybody doing? Now that we have our new location, where is everybody? Don't forget to email people that we have moved if we don't hear from people after the announcement....

Hi all. Hope everyone had a great Cristmas and New Year. Haven't booked anything....yet. Still checking things out. Maybe Vancouver - Hawaii in September. Maybe TA on the Breeze. With airfare added on, the prices for either one would be about the same. Definately a Baltic cruise in 2013.

Hey everyone. Just checking in.

I am now amongst the vast American unemployed so maybe a cruise earlier that Oct. will be doable that is unless I find another job.

Hope everyone is doing great. Waiting for the big Carnival news.

Wow, what can I say Sallie? Sure hope all works out for you. Good luck with the job hunt! That is bad news.

I don't know what is happening on our new chat area here, but some people keep putting messages in the great big old thread. I was hoping we would start a new one in this new Welcome thread and continue here. Opening up both of them every time is a bit of a nuisance.

How about we keep adding our new messages to the new one titled Welcome...

Maybe we should post an other message on the old thread to remind them of our new home.

Thanks Loretta, I am the eternal optimist. I know that since this door closed a better one will open.

hello everyone

I'm a week away from my annual birthday cruise. I fly down to FLL next Friday and board the Crown Princess next Saturday for a week of R&R. It will be strange to be sitting in a bar on a ship and not see any of you guys.

All the 2013 European itineraries should be published by March. I'm going to compare Carnival, RCCL and Princess and see which one I like the best. I hope we can all cruise together again. You all were so much fun.

If the IRS is kind to me, I might try and squeeze in a quickie out of Baltimore around May or June. I won't know until I do my taxes next month.

Have a great birthday cruise Judy!

Hopefully we will get to sail again! Let's hope a Baltic/Europe one in 2013 will work out for many of us. You are right, we will have to compare all the cruiselines and itineraries and prices etc.

It is a little disappointing that Carnival wasn't ready with their announcement this week. Oh well, lots of time. Heck many of us are cruising soon, how lucky is that. I would like to have lots of time to compare and think about future cruises, don't like being that booked up so far out, too many variables....

Cheryl, have you got a trip coming up? I leave on Carnival Victory on the 22nd.
