Aloha - come join us on a cruise through Paradise 4/22/2011 - 5/4/2011. We are Gary & Mary from Upstate New York - retired and just love cruising....especially on RCCL.

What a great itinerary - what a great ship. We are doing this cruise as a part of a B2B that started in Australia.

You have 2 different years posted on your board. We are going April 2012 which I thought you meant, but then you also have 2011 listed.

....I've got to blame something. 2012 is the correct year - maybe subconscious jumped in and wanted to cruise a year earlier!!!!

We cruised Hawaii in 2009 on the Millenium - it was just wonderful - just wait until the Captain skirts the volcano at night.....it is just awesome. We stayed for 3 nights in Honolulu at the Hilton Waikiki (great hotel location on the beach and near to the port too). We really enjoyed all of the sea days on our balcony....we lucked out and got a corner aft family veranda cabin.....the room and balcony were HUGE.

This cruise we have an aft cabin (D-2) on deck 10 (same cabin that we have on the Australia / Hawaii itinerary). So it will be so convnient not having to move rooms.

Welcome ozmarlene, Brant & Marcia, Sandel too. I think that we have cruised together Sandel - your name is so familiar.

Welcome Kathy and Dennis! That looks like a sign to me too! lol

CruiseWizard - We probably have cruised together at some point - Alaska, South America, and/or many Transatlantics. It will come to me sometime in the next year or so..

It looks like we will be neighbors on these cruises - we have a D2 (1604) on deck 10 for the full 30 days. We just love those aft cabins.

What a great omen - I'm with you!!! Booking far in advance gives you the opportunity to get your cabin location of choice; lots of time to find a price drop; converse with your fellow cruisers; make lots of plans and exchange cruise stories.

Looks like we have quite a group of "aft lovers". We were "humpers" for a long time but have changed our preference - larger balconies, just watching and listening to the wake - this is heaven to us!!!

We are in Atlanta for the next 2 days and on Saturday we start our drive back to Upstate New York. From "Hotlanta" to cold country (saw on the weather this AM that snow was not far from our house....yuk).

Aloha!

We are joining you and we are also aft lovers.

I'm Martha and my DH is Lee. This is our first trip to Hawaii and we are excited already!

We are friends with Kathy and Dennis and should have others joining us soon. My coworker and her husband booked today, also.

We will be in 1104 and can't wait to see the sunsets from our balcony!

Hello everyone, just jumping in to say I am planning to book this cruise when I am on the Monarch in a few weeks. Will be joining Kathy and Martha, who are already booked. It will be my first time to Hawaii, and I am so looking forward to it.

Hi also to Sandy and Del we did the Voyager TA together in 2009. It will be lovely to see you again.

Hi Kate - Another cruise together - that's great - only this time it won't be the Voyager. I see our Voyager is going to be replaced by the Mariner sometime in 2011.

Looks like it's gonna be a "girl" cruise. Sometimes those are the best! I think we are all going to have a blast on this one.

I see you are going to do the Baltic's on Jewel followed by the TA. Way to go.
Actually Kathy and Martha are only half of their cabin mates. Hubbies are coming as well. But we do have the Monarch at the end of May which will be girls only...........

Looking forward to seeing you again.

Oh forgot to say I am now booked.
