  1. Also nice find on the Airfare....Im probably going to end up flying into FLL instead from MIA out of RDU. JetBlue and Southewst are looking at around $275 r/t which isn't bad considering leaving Sun and coming back Sat.
  2. Honestly, beaches and tropics don't appeal to me as much as it does to a lot of other people. It make a Port Call in Grand Cayman for a day, and that's perfectly fine with me. Just the thought of a week of island hopping just doesn't appeal to me. I snagged a Porthole room for about $850, which includes single supplement, all taxes, fees and prepaid gratuities, which isn't that bad of a deal IMO. It's sonething I want to try and see what it's like. This itinerary appealed to me because of Havana and Sea Days, and didn't want to make a huge investment into it.
  3. Hi Lauren! Still looks like a blast. It seems like its enough to keep you busy, but not be completly overwhelming. Can't imagine having my first cruise on one of these 5-6000 passenger megaships. I'm all fir being social, but I do have my introverted tendencies lol. I also selected My Time Dining just because I honestly don't know what it's going to be like. Also planning on getting the Cheers package as well. It's necessarily cheap, but I like to drink 😛 lol 😆
  4. Well Cuba was the biggest draw. Also the fact that 2 out of the 5 Days are Sea Days, so I'll have a ton of time to just explore this ship. I love boating and being out on the water in general, so more sea time and fewer ports appeal to me as well.
  5. Hey! Everyone! Making my first post as I'll be taking my first Cruise in October. Going solo on Carnival Sensation on the 5 Day Cuba cruise Oct 7-12 for my birthday. Always been curious about crusing, and finally decided to hop on board (Pun intended) The appeal of a stop in Havana, as well as 2 sea days, was a big draw for me, as the traditional island hopping cruises don't really appeal to me. Now with that said, I know the Sensation is one of the smallest/oldest of the fleet, and doesn't have all the bells and whistles as the modern megaships, and I honestly don't mind that. Was even able to snag a decent deal on a Porthole room (Even as a solo) Obviously there are some disadvantages of being on an older/smaller ship, but what are the perks of being on these ships? Also tips for crusing solo wouldbe beneficial as well. Thanks!
