Well, booked a cruise today for March,2014. I am somewhat nervous! We always cruise with Celebrity or Princess. Our first cruise was in the 80's with Royal Caribbean and wasn't all that impressed. Stopped cruising for years, then started again around 2002' and fell in love with cruising. We do not want to fly any more unless an emergency. We live in Ct. so leaving from NY or NJ is the way to go. Next year, only RCI or Norweigan sails from these ports and I didn't want to go with Norweigan. So, sailing on the Explorer of the Seas. Any positive feedback?
