Default Bad News and Good News...

First, the bad news: We have to cancel our much - anticipated CruiseMates Let's Get Lei'd cruise in Jan. due to family circumstances. I will have to wait another year to meet Kuki, Mike, and all the other cruisemates I am so anxiously waiting to meet....
Now the good news: In light of this, we are now seriously researching a Christmas or pre-Christmas cruise, including my son and possibly my daughter. I guess we are trying to avoid Christmas without my mom/Nanny this year, and a cruise sounds good to me if the whole family can come.

Hi Donna,

Sorry you had to cancel your January cruise. I know how much you were looking forward to meeting all the CM's going on this cruise.

Come with us! We don't know now where we're going from, or where we're going to, but we're going! There are several CM's going on this cruise, so you could meet some of us. Check out our roll call (first page, NCL 12/18/05, posted by me

NCL, December 18-29, at least for now! (Thinking it will be changed from N.O. to Houston, with a change in itinerary.)

Would love to meet you and your family!

I checked out your post Fern, and I guess they are old posts, because people seem to think they are leaving out of N.O. Have you heard of changes in your itinerary or is it too soon? Would love to cruise with people I "know"!

Hi Donna,

No, I haven't heard yet what the changes will be.

I'm just thinking that since NCL already cruises out of Houston, they might move the Sun there. I'm just "guessing" on that. Also, I'm "guessing" they will change the itinerary because we were supposed to go to Key West, and I think that's probably too far away to do from Houston.

This is (as of now) an eleven day cruise. I don't know if you can go for that long, but we thought the price was right. You need to go through the whole "Search For A Cruise" thing to get the price. Just change the date to December 18, it's the second cruise listed. Don't go by the prices listed for cabin categories. Click a cabin # that you're interested in to get the "discounted" prices. For some reason they only list a few cabins, but there are other's available. You can get your TA to find what you want.

There's no new info. on NCL's website, but the "specials" that included the Sun, have been pulled. The "Find A Cruise" still lists this cruise going out of N.O., but we all know that's not going to happen! We just want to cruise, and while we'd like to go on the itinerary scheduled, (we haven't been to a couple of the ports), we won't let a change stop us.

My TA will be back Tuesday and I'm sure she'll be in touch with me as soon as she knows anything. She's great!

Hope will consider this cruise. We'd love to meet you!

Hello Donna,
Sorry to hear about the cancellation,,,,however,,,,why don't you join the lovely Mrs. Jones and me on the Legend of the Seas, out of Tampa on December 10th. It's a great little ship, and a fun time will be had by all. Super port to sail out of, and great airport to fly into and out of as well. Great deals on this cruise too! Give this one some consideration!!
See you aboard,
Ken
