Default Costa Concordia from Barcelona May 14th

I booked a 7 night Western Mediterranean cruise for under $1000 incl taxes, because I found a single inside cabin. A different port everyday.
Great itinerary. 3 ports in Italy, plus Marseille, Tunis, and Palma de Mallorca.

Anyone else going? Also any advice on tours or places to see?

And what types of dancing do they do on the Concordia? Anyone know?

Dates: Mon 03-May-2010 to Mon 10-May-2010

Itinerary:
Miami, Florida , At Sea , George Town, Grand Cayman , Cozumel, Mexico , Playa Del Carmen, Mexico , Key West, Florida

Vista Deck, Concierge Class (Veranda with fresh flowers, fruit and welcome Champagne, private embarkation)

Plus found airfare extremely reasonable for those dates. ($84 to MIA on AA 5/2), return flight under $200.

... I've never been on Celebrity, but I think I'll be booking this cruise. I've been searching for a good deal for ages, and this seems to fit the bill for me.

PAT, I know it's not the ports you'd prefer, but maybe something to consider

Hi Summit

Just wanted to tell you that I just love the Summit!

I was on the last 14 night- Classical Mediterranean Cruise
( Oct. 31-Nov 14) staying 2 days before in Barcelonia , Spain

Barcelonia,Nice, Florence, Rome, Rome, Naples, Athens, Istanbul, Mykonos, Split, Croatia and ending in Venice, Italy. I had a Balcony on the Sky Deck and it was just out of this world , the pictures I have are something else.

You are going to love this ship , and the service is great!

I don't know about dancing, but every morning they have an exercise class right in front of the Big Screen on the pool deck. It always had a lot of people and the instructors knew their stuff. They looked like they were having a lot of fun doing it too.

Default $799 Balcony for a Single

Hi fellow solos,

I just booked a B2B on the Caribbean Princess, this is a great deal at $832 with tax for single occupancy BALCONY. Week is April 4, fast deal #17868. The following week, April 11, is a little bit less ($817). Come sail solo with me!

Thanks for update--would love to see something like this in the summer.

Was out most of this week, then 2 more weeks. Problem is I return on 4/5 and cruise is 5/3.

Also other issues going on at work. Not looking good; but I have 5 weeks vacation this year and have taken only 3 days of it. Unfortunately I've had to take some personal (for elderly mother) and sick days (from same thing I was in hosp for). But, after 22 years you'd think they'd give me a break!

Say a prayer, keep your fingers crossed. Saddest thing this is the first time I'm actually going with a friend. I usually go solo - and have met some life-long friends (Hi Pat! Hi Jack! Hi Laura! and many not on the solo boards). Now my GF will have to go by herself - her first cruise to boot!

Ok, enuf whining for now. Thanks for listening!

Hi Nancy,
There is still a lot of room on the Solstice 5-23-10. We'll meet you at Senor Frog's for more backwards tequilla shots. We still look at the pics of the Spirit Repo cruise, we had a wonderful time. We had the best CC group ever. Mike and Tracey
