Default CruiseMates "Rock the Locks" Group Cruise Reborn

The originally scheduled "Rock the Locks" CruiseMates group cruise had to be cancelled when Princess unexpectedly pulled all the space. However, it has been '"reborn"! We came across another wonderful itin, with a full transit of the Panama Canal, on the Radiance with even better pricing, and a GREAT amenity package, so we've DONE IT.

Had to cancel the NCL Bite of the Big Apple Cruise to make this work... but we think it is going be a great cruise, so worth it!

So... Come "Rock the Locks" with CruiseMates

Radiance of the Seas

Sailing April 23/06 - 14 NIGHTS

We are still booked on Coral Princess. However,, Radiance has been the most beautiful ship we have ever cruised, so I intend to call Nancy as soon as I can and switch to the new Rock The Locks.

Let's hope that RCI doesn't recall the cabins!

Paul.. this one we WILL be doing!! We have until late Aug to sell cabins, then with the system RCI uses now, they have to leave us an equivelant # of cabins in the group to what we've already sold.

So.. those of you who want to come along should get yourselves booked SOON!

Be nice to do 2 cruises with you within a few months. First the Oct. Liberty crossing, then in Apr.!

I called Nancy and booked it. She also told me that as Platinum members, we should get $100 each discount on the cabin.

The bad news is that someone already has a hold on the large balcony cabins in the stern.
We booked 9576 which is one of the D1 cabins right next to the curved portion that has a larger balcony.

Looking forward to two great cruises!

Paul.. that's excellent! The Platinum and Diamond Crown and Anchor member discounts are nice bonus!

Thought the Jewel of the Seas was a beautiful vessel, so I'm sure the Radiance will be an excellent experience too.

And, perhaps oddly, I've actually never been to Aruba before.

Kuki,
I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that Jake will be able to do this one. We are probably going to have to cancel our Nov. cruise because of limited vacation time with his new job. Next year he should have 4 weeks, and as long as the company doesn't mind his being gone for this many days in a row, we'll be doing this one.

Hmmm, Phyll, I'm thinking about it, I am, I am! I love the Radiance class ships and the itinerary is great!

Common sense tells me it is too close to my Sept. trip but RCI always gives me a better single cabin rate than Princess!

Also, an old friend and boyfriend came back into my life and he wants to go to Alaska next year.

What to do, what to do!

The choice is pretty simple. Hawaii will still be there. A CruiseMates Panama Canal sailing may not be <g>

Hope you drag Larry along, and JOIN US!

This is the 3rd year in a row I've tried to get to Hawaii & went on a cruise instead......but this cruise would be for our 25th anniversary & we always said we'd do the Panama canel cruise for our 25th..........so now I have to try & figure out if we can close up shop for 14 days in a row.......kuki....you know how being your own boss goes.....<S>

Our roof is new....so no worries there.......we live above flood level......no worry there......taxes won't be due at that time.......all that is left is the kid's driving.........<S>

I'll be thinking about this one....real hard.........

phyll.....only if you & Jake come along!!!! ( hint.........hint......)



Sharon

Just booked this afternoon with Nancy. Looking forward to meeting all of you in person. Three years ago we were booked on the first "Get Leid" cruise but had to cancel because of wife's accident and two broken legs. After all this time she is doing well with arm crutches and a wheelchair at times. Been a "lurker" since 2002 but plan to be more active posting to chit chat. Been on two cruises since the first of the year and looking forward to this one.

Hi ya Frank,

I do remember when you and your wife had to cancel the "Get Lei'd" cruise because of the accident.

Glad to hear you've been back cruising... and have decided to join us. Welcome Aboard!!!

OK, OK, OK, I'll do it and maybe Sue will consider me for a roomie, she said she wants to go and even if she doesn't, I'll do it!!! I like RCI and being Platinum is a good thing.

Kuki, I don't think I'll resurrect the Cookie Monster Moose but it was a fun time, I still look at those pictures and smile! I took them to Abbott to show everyone just what they are dealing with and they asked what is that on everyone's heads??? :-)

Frank, would be nice to meet you and your wife!
