Spring is the target for Europe. Fall is likely a HAL Eurodam cruise, but probably Caribbean. Could be a shorty to check who is living in the reef balls off Half Moon Cay or a 7 day trip with divers.
BTW, my kiddo does Princess and being he's a twig on the Boone tree, kin to one of Chicago's prior mayors. Just BTDT to Hawaii (Maui) nice Maui Ocean Center there for shark diving - $199 a diver.

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.
