Smile New to forum-hello!

My family and I are taking the Fantasy on July 2nd-9th, to the Bahamas. We are leaving out of Charleston. We are all so very excited. This will be our first trip as a family, with three children; my husband and I took another cruise line to Alaska in 2008.

Look forward to posting with you all for the next 76 days!

I too, welcome you to CruiseMates. You'll find a GREAT bunch of folks here, who can, and will answer almost any question you might have about cruisin'.
I have to agree with your "little one". 75 days is WAY too long to wait for your next cruise!

Thanks everyone!

My husband is a pilot and we have a little Cessna, we were looking at flying over to Charleston, then hopping on the ship, but we decided just to drive. It's only a 6 hour drive for us and really, since we'd have to have so much gear, it's just easier to drive.
