We're in SO. Indiana (Evansville) and we don't sail for over a year...but that leaves plenty of time for the research...it will be a first cruise for us both. We're calling it the honeymoon we didn't get. (second marriage for us both, March2003). I envy your sail date!!

What ship and itinerary for you?

Sheryl

NikkiY - envy you too....we're basically looking at one year away! sigh....it seems like a long time but we really want to do it right. Our families have "merged" with this marriage but we still need a honeymoon A L O N E!!! I have two (15 and 13, he has one-7) Kids don't seem too upset that they are not going....but I'm sure there will be more cruises after this and they will be included in the majority then!

I tried to talk my sister and her BF into going with us - they wouldn't have anything to do with the idea....I just don't get it. She has cruised once before and said after the third day she was ready to come...no problems with motion sickness or anything like that - just didn't interest her. Go figure...

Itty - Not from Indiana -but wanted to let you know that going solo on a carnival cruise ship is not bad - have done so myself.. I was seated at table with others that were single - made friends there and throughout the ship. You need to not be shy - just go for it. If you want to change your plans and go May 7 out of Miami, there is a group of folks - mostly from Ohio that are on the Carnival Valor you can join. Go to the CCL Valor Singlers Cruise (new post) message board. Good Luck and remember get out there and have fun on whatever cruise you are on.

49 DAYS

South Bend is windy and cold, but 49 days from now it's going to be sunny.
With drink in hand, and cabana boys, I'm going to be a very happy girl.

hope you all are doing well.

It is cold and miserable here this weekend...lots of cruisers have ditched the cold for the warm beautiful tropics. I can't understand why I am still here!!! Once this b itter cold weather is gone - it will be easier to be patient...but until then, I am whining in single digit temps!

I am about 30 minutes north of Indianapolis. I will be cruising in April on board Carnival's Holiday. This will be my second cruise, but it will be my first with Carnival and my first by myself.

I didn't know you could be 'assigned' a roommate...please let me know how that works...I'm curious. I know that singles have to pay extra but didn't realize there were more options available. As of now we have 278 days left...and to think we started out with over 400+ days! Still seems to be too long!
