25 yr old teacher daughter and I (57 yr old) are going. She has not cruised since 1990 and has been dying to go for ages. I last cruised in June to Alaska on Celebrity Mercury. Prefer Carnival. I sailed with Carnival on Triumph 12/99 and Spirit 12/01. Due to the premium $$ for spring break we have taken an inside GTY this trip. Daughter has only ever had insides and in 34 years of cruising I have had insides only 2x. We have tenative plans/ideas for Gr. Cay and Cozumel as I was there 11/02 on NCL Dream. However, I only have hard copy info as my then computer died and data was not savable. Need to do more research on Jamaica. did Dunn's Falls in 1990. Unsure of air arrangments yet. Waiting for SW to open reservations for this time as majors $ way too $$$ for daughter and seem somewhat $ for me. Would like to go down Sat so less rush on Sun.
I check this board every couple days or you can e-mail me direct. Would plan on a mates, @ddicts, critics group meeting aboard ship on first sea day, suggest around noon at the aft pool bar.
Did you book the cruise with Carnival? I booked it through a Carnival vacation planner and said that I may get an upgrade. I've sailed on the Imagination on 8/02 had an inside cabin but got upgraded to ocean view(porhole). I also sailed on the Glory on 8/03(booked it through cheaptickets.com) had an inside cabin was not upgraded because ship was sold out. I always go with a teacher friend of mine in the summer, but she cannot go on this one because she has spring break on a different week. I. I always get to the port at 11:00. so meeeting at noon would be fine with me, but I know that some others get to the port at a later time.
