My partner Chuck and I have finally decided to move to Florida from Connecticut. We have decided to put cruising on hold for a time to get established in a new home and new state. We have decided on Pine Ridge Estates in Beverly Hills, close to family and we like the area. We hope to be out of here by spring 2014, if all goes right. The idea of driving to the port(s) is wonderful, like we do up here. Can't wait to get a new life and meet some new, hopefully future cruise friends?

My partner and I just moved from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa. Kinda sucks not being close to the FL and MIA ports, but hey we do have a newly renovated ship(Carnival Sunshine)here close by at Port Canaveral. We're canceling our Allure of the Seas(September 2014) to swap it for the Carnival Sunshine 2014. We're still deciphering whether or not choosing between August or September and we're very interested in the Scenic Ocean-view cabins. Has anyone ever booked one of these cabin types? Also, anyone looking to sail around that time next year and wouldn't mind hanging out, we would love the company.

Thanks RMS for the offer. This will be a very big change for us and knowing someone in the area lending their expertise really is appreciated.

We're in the Tampa area in the winter months, but Apr-Oct we're on Cape Cod. I could NOT live here year round! In fact, we're considering selling here and staying on the Cape year round...Fla is just NOT for everyone! We're sailing on the Emerald Princess Feb 7. I've posted on the Roll Call Board, but no responses. Anyone sailing with us!?!?!?!?

Hi everyone, we are in our mid-fifties and live closeby in Boca. Moved down here a couple of years ago and love being close to the ports. We've taken 38 cruises in the past and have four lined up for 2014. Our favorite lines are Celebrity, Cunard, Seabourn and Azamara. Ann and Rebecca
