Yes it's not that warm, but I was doing a few things in my yard wearing shorts and a T shirt.

Keep looking. Maybe you will find a bargain, since they vary from week to week.

yep a Newlywed and a cruise booked; I had a year off cruising thought it was going to be two; but we peeked the other day & the price was IRRESTIBLE...

excited to be going again, finally.

Dina just returned from one; I tried to book with her; but New Orlean's hotels were sold out.... Mardi Gras

Illl get her back on here; maybe get Speedo king to come back; but we still need Walter and James and RescueDad a/k/a Nurse Joe

I look practically everyday. Just before the Triumph misadventure, there were cruises listed as low as 189 pp!!! Granted they were inside cabins but to us, a cruise is a cruise!! DW didn't want to spend the money..... one of the cruises was the next one after the mishap.

Michael...

I feel your pain being landlocked and only 1 port close to yall.

Makes me realize how lucky we are to have several ports to chose from, but we seem to get the best deals out of Miami - the deals aren't so great from Tampa which is only 45 minutes from me.

Now that I live in Florida, I can drive to several cruise ports. However since I live in the land of Palm trees, great beaches and many other vacation spots, I don't feel the urge to cruise like I did when I lived in Connecticut.

Next week we are going to Disney World.

Checking in today. Nothing special to report. I posted on another thread about the Comet Panstarrs and how I want to see it. There are too many trees in my area which compromise my sight lines. The comet is near the horizon in the western skies after sundown.
