We are not booked for anything right now. I am looking at fall of 2011 for our next one and I've been looking at the Dream but not sure because of the size of it. I really want to do the Eastern Caribbean again but love the size of the spirit class ships and I don't think any of them do the eastern. Anyway, I can not even start getting prices until about April of 2010. At that time I will seriously start looking and make a decision.

Well, were off on the Dream in about 6 weeks or so and off on the Mariner out of L.A. a few weeks after that. We sailed the Mariner twice out of Canaveral--long story as to why were going to L.A. to sail it again. Beyond that, haven't thought too much about cruising. I have mixed emotions about the Oasis--would like to give it a shot this coming fall but then again, I'm not so sure. Have to take a wait and see on that one.
We're booked on the "Liberty" for Jan 30th, and can't wait! (Reunion cruise with my agent and her hubby) I doubt that I'll book any more "way out" because I'm retired at last, so I'm hoping that we can do lots more "pack-n-go" cruises in 2010. I'd love to do the deep southern itinerary aboard "Miracle" again. LOVED that cruise, and of course that ship.
The Legend on Jan 24, 2010 to Western Caribbean. Not sure about anythign after that. Hopefully will get to meet Travelgalsue on the cruise.

We just got back from the Dream (9 day on Dec 3rd).....
upon returning....we immediately booked the Triumph for January 4th. It is only a 5 day....but our oldest son is home for Winter Break and it was the best cruise that fit into his schedule before he heads back.
We also have the Fantasy booked for May 8th. (the last sailing - 7 days - before it heads to Charleston.
Other cruises that will happen...but are not booked yet....
Ecstasy (probably in Sept...and probably a B2B) because we have never sailed on that ship
Destiny and Liberty (as a B2B in November with 2 days inbetween) because we have never sailed on those ships.
And that will complete ALL the Carnival ships. We will have sailed on every one (except Carnivale...it only did 3 and 4 day cruises and we only did longer cruises back then)
COMPLETES THE FLEET
If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!
Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
Nothing booked as of yet, but trolling the Carnival site to see what looks good. Going to look at RC site also to see what they have, something I said I would never do again after our first and last cruise with RC. I do like the Victory southern caribbean out of San Juan except it has no sea day. These are all places I have never been, maybe I would skip Dominica and just chill on thi ship.
I just don't want to do Mexico, Nassau, or St Thomas again. Thinking of Feb 2011 or in that area of time.

I'm happy to say I'm booked and counting the weeks till I cruise on Imagination with my mom for 4 nights in March. Originally I had booked a solo inner/inner Cat 1A, she accepted my invitation to cruise with me and we upgraded to an OV Cat 6b in the middle of M deck. She lost her hubby in April 09 to cancer after a horrible 2-year fight, during which he lost one lung.
Looking forward to walking about in Key West & doing the Plaza Maya Deluxe Beach excursion in Cozumel. This will be my 2nd large ship cruise, did my first in 07 with my son, who was 14 at the time. Looking forward to doing all the grown up things this time around! We will make final payment in a couple of weeks, and then book the Cozumel excursion. I have already done a test pack to make sure everything I want to bring will sit in 1 suitcase + my one boarding bag.
Booked and counting the days until we sail on the Legend Jan 24th. Looking forward to meeting nlb1050 while onboard. Will be sailing with 86 others in our group so it should be a fun week. We are all looking forward to getting somewhere warm!
Looking into a cruise for sometime later in 2010 but nothing booked yet. Do know we want to do Alaska but it will have to wait until 2012. That leaves me with needing to also find some cruises for 2011.
Booked and cruising in 30 days!! CCL Triumph 4 day out of MSY. Looking into booking another one this spring before hubby returns to Afghanistan, otherwise no cruising until he returns in early 2011! Looking into booking Dream!!
I am booked on NCL Dawn for 9 nights Southern Carribean on March 26, 2010.
I am also booked on Carnival Legend November 7, 2010 for 7 nights out of Tampa. I am still looking for a dive buddy to go on this one.
I will probably take a 3 or 4 day cruise in June. Last year I got a 4 day cruise with NCL for only $159 pp for ocean view. Will book at the last minute.
The benefits of living in Florida......Lots of ports.
Well, I couldn't stand it, and booked "Dream" for Nov. 6th 2010, to help a lot of other leathernecks celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday.
Also, have the "Liberty" booked for Jan. 30th 2010. SOON, but not quite soon enough for me.
Hope to do some "pack-n-go" cruises between those two.
Southern Carribean - Miracle - 8 days out of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Deck 8 with an extended balcony.
Stops in Grand Turk, Dominican Rep, Aruba, & Curacao
Can't wait! These new stops just seem to have appeared in the past month or so and seem to be really good ones. To date, we have been lucky to see different ports on every cruise. Mind you, this is only our third cruise
And to top it all off, we are travelling with friends that we usually only see about every 2 years, and they booked the room on Miracle right next door!
I have booked my first cruise ever. We are going on the Carnival Valor to the Western Caribbean departing on Feb 6, 2011. I know, we planned well out. I wish we were leaving tomorrow! We have booked an aft extended balcony cabin.
