I agree with Captain Russ. It's still too early to ascertain the impact of Sept. 11th. People are still planning their vacations and getting used to the idea of flying again. I for one, am flying from Australia to join the 18th November cruise aboard the Victory with Sherry - The Cruise Queen. I am also coming back again in the new year to cruise aboard the Spirit on 6th January 2002.
As a Cruise-a-holic, I cruise because it's the only real form of vacation - and Carnival is the best for partying and meeting people (19th & 20th Cruise can't be wrong in 6 years).
I maybe interested in cruising in March - but won't decide until I get back from the Victory in late November.
