Default Phoenix AZ?

I'm in Phoenix Arizona and I was wondering something. Most people who live back east cruise in the winter to escape the cold, but do those of you who live here where ita 110 degrees in the shade take your cruises in summer when it's most uncomfortable here?

Hey Paul,
My sister also lives in Phoenix, well actually Scottsdale, and they took their first cruise 2 summers ago and no they did not go to the Caribbean, but Alaska!!!
She usually does plan vacations in July/August to escape the awful heat, its like our winter, only the other extreme.

BTW, are you joining us on Golden for New Years??? Aw, come on!!!

Hi, Paul. I live in Phoenix and most of our cruises have been in April and May because that has been the best time to go to the places we have wanted to go.

We are just used to the heat and we can head up north and in less than 2 hours be in wonderful mountains and forests . We left very comfortable Phoenix in mid April to depart from Miami for the Canal. Miami and most stops on that itinerary -- now THOSE were humid and uncomfortable to us.

Unfortunately, as I speak, it appears our monsoon season is arriving early and the humidity is beginning to rise. Our 114 and 11% humidity last week is now 102 with 23%. I'll take the former any day over the latter.

BTW, as has already probably been noted elsewhere on this site, we thoroughly enjoyed the cruising features on the Travel Channel and especially Anne's contribution. It was so nice to get to see her and be able to put a face to all those wonderful columns of hers we have read over the years. She certainly added a lot to that feature and does so well on camera. Please pass this along to her.

Sammy

I will pass it along to her. Thanks for the compliment :-)

I guess I'm kind of used to the humodity because the lower temps today feel better to me even if it is a bit muggier.

I know you have lived in Phoenix in the past but thought your main residence was in the east. Are you back here to live for awhile or just to visit? I know you have relatives here and one has been an acquaintance of my whole family for more than 35 years.

Your site keeps getting better and better. I haven't been visiting any sites much lately. But your new format is great and I see several familiar friends here now from other message boards. Yippee! A new place to hang out!

I am living in Phoenix again for the time being. And I have seen our mutual friends, the doc, because I had a bicycle accident and broke my collarbone and 3 ribs. Ouch - but he has been taking good care of me.

That's terrible!!! Now see, if you had been cruising, that wouldn't have happened. In fact, a cruise would be great for the final stages of your recovery.

I'm so sorry to hear that. If you don't have a good doctor, I know of one.

Hi Paul,

Nina (my daughter for those of you who don't know her) used to live and work between Phoenix and Sedona, AZ. Sedona is at a 4000 foot elevation and lots of people who live in Phonex take weekends in Sedona or Flagstaff, which is even higher in the mountains. Arizona is such a gorgeous state. So dry though that I end up feeling like a mummy that's been left in the desert for a hundred years or so. Florida's humidity suits me very well although I do miss winter (a little bit anyway).
