hi. i haven't booked this yet, but this is our cruise for next year, 9/9 being our third anniviversary. I told DH that we would be doing this cruise again, beause there were things that we just didn't get to do. As soon as I make a down payment, i will be back. Nice to meet you. marshhawk

Down payment made-got the cabin we wanted-at the price we wanted, so very excited-even have the excursion planned!
OMG I love this ship, but I bet it will be much different sailing in September than January! Whoopee!

well I guess if we have at least 4 it could be called a party
welcome aboard long wait but will check in now and then.
This will be our 7th time on the Legend (only 4 so far but 2 before 9/9/12, and we are doing a b2b on 9/16/12

i thought my Dh would flip out when I told him i booked the cruise, and that we could pay off the cruise monthly-cruising on lay away. you must really love the Legend. What shore excursions have you done while cruising her?

Old maybe but definitely young at heart to enjoy cruising so much. DH has chosen the BIG excursion for this cruise-Mayan ruins in Belize, however when he heard that he had to hike in the jungle for 15 minutes, he said, "but I'm old" and then he thought for a moment and then said, "but I am only here on earth once, and we wont have the oportunity again." We will see how he feels in a year when we finally book the excursions.

current copies of the Fun Times, and copies of the new menu would be nice.
Check to see if they have replaced the broken Chuhoolie like glass in the dining rooms. Think they must have had a really tall waiter.

When I work at the box office window instead of the phones, it seems I have a whole day to look at nothing but Carnival, so that's how I will spend today. I guess when our timeclock gets to 365 days, we can have a party! Who knows there may be more people on the roll call by then.

Dot-In 22 days we will be at 400, and in another month, one year. I think that is exciting. I have been studying for an Alaskan cruise for 2014, going with HAL. Noticed that you have sailed HAL=what big differences to you think I will see.?
Our friends have cruised Princess, and we have done Carnival, this way they can't say well we don't like Carnival because....so I won't feel hurt that I picked the wrong cruise line(they went on our honeymoon cruise with us, and had a good time, but they don't like sea, sand, and heat. and they blamed that all on Carnival.

Still just the 2 of us
We just love to cruise. HAL is different but great. We always book inside so we can go on more cruises. HAL is the only cruise line (by our experience ) that has cabins on the walk around deck I think it is the Upper Promanade deck 6. So we book that deck and we are only a few steps away from a big balcony which has chairs. I think it is a Catagory J and a few Cat K (aft) It is not as busy as Carnival but there are great shows and dance bands They are very relaxing cruises. BTW we have never been on a bad cruise
Hope this helps

Fascination sails from Jacksonville. The only cruise in town. It takes about two hours to go from the port out to the sea. Riding on a river, past gorgeous houses, quaint restaruants, and huge shipping docks, where the cars are imported, Huge tankers go up and down the river. Embarkation-well your the only ship there so it's pretty much a breeze, but not someplace i would want to leave from in the heat of summer.... in fact i'm still a little afraid of what temperatures will be like for next year's cruise. I hate hot!
