I'll be cruising to the Bahamas on the Explorer of the Sea in March and on the Norwegian Gem in June! If air fare wasn't so high I'd consider other embarkation sites but we can drive to NJ/NY so those are the ships we get!

Caribbean in April. First time cruising the Caribbean, cruise #25.

I'm wishing we could afford another Med cruise instead...maybe in a few years.

RCI 7 days in the Caribbean because I won a free cruise and that's what it says on the certificate. I have to give RCI a list of several date/cruise options and they will confirm back to me which one I can have. Hoping I can get Oasis or Allure.

None- unless you count a bateau-mouche on the Seine. We're going to Paris for a week in May. We did love our Alaskan cruise last year and have already put down a deposit on another Innersea Discoveries cruise in 2014.

We are avoiding long flights and expensive trips this year. So an inexpensive cruise from Long Beach. And a coastal cruise from Ensenada to Seattle.
