Holiday Exchange 2014 Celebrate the Holidays of Season with your Cruise Critic Friends -- Thanksgiving - Hanukkah - Christmas - Kwanza - The New Year
We are looking at sometime between May & July 2014. Personally, I am hoping I get a call from our TA telling me that they are running some kind of special for the new years. I want to book in the next few months!!
Keep the resolutions comings...I'm already glad I joined this site!! So much information on here!!
My travel resolution for 2014 was to go somewhere I've never been.
Instead, I booked my first solo cruise for early February. That should be as good as a new destination. Then again, maybe I'll get to do both!
Carnival Sunshine - Bahamas - February 2014, Carnival Conquest - Bahamas - September 2013, Celebrity Silhouette - E. Caribbean - March 2013, Carnival Glory - Canada - July 2012, Disney Fantasy - W. Caribbean - May 2012, Carnival Fascination - Bahamas - October 2011, Carnival Fascination - Bahamas - June 2011 , Carnival Legend - W. Caribbean - May 2011, RCCL Monarch - Bahamas - August 2010, Disney Wonder - Bahamas - January 2010, Carnival Ecstasy - Mexico - March 2009, Celebrity Millennium - Alaska - September 2008, Carnival Sensation - Bahamas - July 2007
Let someone else win at trivia (after I win at least one Miracle and Imagination Ship on a stick)
I still cruise for Warm Chocolate Melting Cake (with 2 sugar-free vanilla ice-creams)
"I can see Carnival Inspiration, Miracle, and Imagination from my front porch" (to paraphrase Tina Fey as S. Palin)
My resolution is to do something new on every cruise. in 2012, I snorkeled for the first time on a cruise in the western Caribbean on the Legend. This year, I did a Segway tour of Nassau while on a Bahamas cruise on the Pride. I snorkeled again as well. For 2014 I am booked on a Southern Caribbean cruise on the Sunshine. Other than never having been to these ports before, I will have to find something completely new to do. I like to push my boundaries and try something that I normally would not try.
I am going to Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Turk.

I hope to do a better job at saving money, so that I can take a cruise at least every second year. My last cruise was 4 years ago. Though other things in life have caused me to stay close to home ( I had to cancel a couple of cruises since then), I still hope to fluff up that vacation fund, so that I know I can cruise if life is good to me.
I'm already booked on a 94 day World Voyage so my cruise resolutions pertains to what I do during the cruise.
1. Use only the stars
2. Don't gain weight
3. Don't do anything stupid and hurt myself
4. Try to do something different or new at every port (there are 36)
5. Try new foods (I'm a picky eater)
Hope everyone else gets to fill their resolutions and cruise in 2014.
Oh wow - you leave in a few days! Sounds amazing! Bon Voyage!
