I'm interested, but for later in the year (Oct. or Nov.). I always take a family land-based vacation during the summer and '08 is no exception -- we've got the vacation planned for the 4th of July week. (My son came up with the bright idea of going home next year for Taste of Chicago, and everybody loves the idea so much that it's turning into a family reunion of sorts.) Then I cruise in the fall. The cruise I'm very seriously considering is Princess Oct. 5. I'm also considering the NCL cruise, but will wait until my Dec. cruise to see if I like NCL and those tiny cabins. I have a feeling I'm going to love freestyle dining, though. I plan to book the '08 cruise in Dec. as soon as I return from Hawaii. I'll keep watching for your posts and see what you end up doing and hope it works for me. It would be a lot of fun going with a small group rather than going solo.
