Haven't been here in a while. I last cruised in March 2010 with my mom on the Imagination, to Key West & Cozumel. Had a fantastic time, though my trip down from Chicago was horrible due to a snow delay out of O'hare then needing to re-schedule my Dallas/Ft Worth flight and I ended up landing at FLL at 3:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning, taking off from DFW at 12:05 a.m. - the time we were supposed to land in FLL. Spent just over 3.5 hours on the plane on the runway in DFW waiting to be de-iced. I think they either only have one de-icer there or at least only one was working that day. What a nightmare! We had window seats in the dining room for every meal except for onw - were we sat at a round table ewith other midwesterners! We even saw a submarine (one of ours!) one night as the sun was setting. Here are the links to my FB albums from the cruise.
No cruises planned for now, my son started college and my ex is not contributing a penny (deadbeat a-hole that he is) so I don't know when I may cruise again. I hope I can take my son on a college graduation cruise to Alaska.
I'd like to hear your experiences cruising to Alaska and which Carnival ships go there, best balcony cabins to aim for, etc...
Never too early to start doing research!
Thanks, and I hope everyone is having a great year so far!
