I am a 46 year old single female out of Los Angeles, traveling on July 5 with my 13 yo nephew from Southampton, GB all around the isles. Love cruising and expect to do more in the near future. Don't mind kids at all - that's why I'm taking my nephew on a "grand tour". I'm not sure how it will work out in the future, but Royal Carribean is now affiliated with Princess and, as my mom works with Princess, we get pretty good deals. Am planning a Mediteranean cruise for next summer and am looking for a 3rd and 4th to fill out a mini-suite cabin for 4. Are you interested? If you look at the brochure prices, figure about 1/4 of that cost.
