C,mon y'all checking in (putting on my southern accent) - the specials end on Mar. 31... book and get a wonderful cruise out of FLL for next Feb/ can always cancel and forfeit $100, but don't you spend that on a night out every weekend? Caribbean Princess 2007 was a blast! And we're all heading back for 2008. Join us!

Next year I get to move to Florida.......yippey!
I agree with the Feb trip know you want to. If you spend 100 dollars per month on drinks or meals out and about...thats the price of the cruise.....PRIORITIES!!!!!!!!
Plus I want to make lots of new friends in Florida...even if I will be out in the boonies making speed runs to Tampa, Orlando and Dade city (SawMill campground). No more cold winters after this coming winter.....fab-u-lous.

I was wondering how many Cruise Critic gay and Lesbian posters there are in Florida and what parts of the state they reside. Not everyone can be from Ft lauderdale nor the Miami area. Me I will be in the rural area near Crystal River and figure I can buzz down to Tampa/St Pete or venture to the big city of Ft lauderdale when I need to get away.
Just curious as to how many posters are spread throughout the state...
Looking on gay web sites, there seems to be alot of people from Brooksville....cant figure why Brooksville.

Hey Guys,

I just noticed this thread. We live in Coconut Grove, a part of Miami. Tom, just from this thread alone you're going to be a busy guy trying to keep up with all of us. .

Chip1969 - Congrats! You are going to love the Alaska cruise. We celebrated our 20th on an Alaskan cruise and had a wonderful time. We were on the Celebrity Infinity and the dining room staff had a cake and sang to us. We are now getting ready to celebrate our 23rd on an Eastern Caribbean cruise the last week of May.
