Default When's your next cruise?

I thought it would be cool to hear where everyone's next cruise is going
and maybe see if there is a pattern of everyone going to Europe, or Alaska etc.

How long till your cruise?
What ports will you visit?
Why did you pick this cruise?
Have you starting packing, planning tours, etc?
What one aspect are you most excited about?

Cruise E401 | Oceana | P&O Cruises
This is basically for our 65th year & our 45th wedding anniversary, lot of sea days but we went for it & got a nicer cabin. Oceana is about the same as Sea Princess I think. Always wanted to do a round trip Caibbean cruise from our home port. We also got a shed load of OBC for booking early so it will be virtually all inclusive!!

Never seen an itinerary like that, how odd. With the airfare savings that's a reasonable price and a lot of sea days. If it left went the other way Miami to Europe for a week and back I'd be interested

We are leaving in 3 weeks to sail on the Oasis of the Seas, western Caribbean with stops in Labadee, Jamaica and Cozumel. It is our 10 year wedding anniversary, and the first cruise for our 4 year old daughter, we wanted to make it a special cruse, so we choose the biggest and best....Oasis of the Seas!

There are quite a lot from UK to the Caribbean round trip 20+ nights, but you have to be careful of the shorter ones, just sail there a couple of islands & back. This year the same cruise was 35 nights & included the Panama canal. They also do fly cruises, P&O have one or two ships based out there in the winter so you can fly out cruise back or in reverse. Our last Caribbean was fly out & 28 nights round the islands + N'orlins & Florida.

Carnival Dream, Western Caribbean, because we could
I guess we will be at sea over Halloween but that hadn't occurred to me until just now.

December 1st on the Norwegien Sun doing a 10 day cruise and hitting St. Thomas, St. Martin, St. Lucia, Barbados and Dominica.

We decided on this cruise because it was hitting 3 ports we haven't been to, been to St. Thomas and St. Martin twice, and we haven't been to the Eastern Caribbean in a while.

The price was also very good and we picked Norwegien because we enjoyed our last cruise with them so much.

We are also booked on the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas for February 23rd on a 6 night sailing to the Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Haiti. This will be our 1st cruise on RCI and are looking forward to trying this line out. We chose this cruise because it was a 6 day and we are trying to get as many family members to go as possible. So far we have 4 couples in our group but are hoping more will be able to come.

Our next cruise is on Silversea Silver Explorer next August from Kangerlussuaq Greenland to Nome Alaska. Given how many problems ships are having this year doing Northwest Passage itinerary; I am getting concerned that our cruise may be cancelled if ice is too thick.
