Default Where do you go to get excited about your vacation?

I'm going on the Caribbean Princess in December (12/16/07) and have been surfing all the sites I can think of on the internet. There haven't been many new reviewer updates, etc. so the information is getting old. I thought many of you would have ideas on places to surf, etc. to get me re-energized. The cruise is still 3 months again (but I booked 6 months ago) so the time is flying by . . . . but I'm so excited I love reading anything about Princess Cruiselines, the ports (St. Marteen, St. Thomas and Princess Cay), the rooms on the ship, various posts, etc. etc.

I usually check these boards for new topics. I check out other website reviews as well and read what others have had to say. I have found short video clips on YouTube and pictures on either Webshots or google images.

I am off in 3 weeks for San Francisco on the Coral Princess...can't wait!!

Have fun on yours!!

If you have been reading about the ship for six months, I'm sure you've seen the website devoted just to the Caribbean Princess:


If you haven't seen it, it will tell you everything you need to know - and then some! As far as the ports go, I read the various message boards for each to find out what's good, what's popular, and also Google the port for more ideas. There is so much info out there - you can never find enough.

I am a die hard Carnival fan, but was docked with the Caribbean Princess in St. Maarten and would LOVE to sail her someday-she is beautiful!

I get excited the day I decide I'm going to book a cruise and then the day I come off a cruise-because I know I'm going to be booking another one very soon!

Thanks for the website on CP.

You may have read all the latest info on Princess, but for just plain "cruise-addicted" talk, hang around the Chit Chat for Cruisers board, or come to the nightly (9-10pm) Chat Room, where the rest of us cruise-starved stay-at-homes hang out! It's always a lively bunch, and good for a few laughs!

Go to the different webcams that are on the ships. I know Princess has webcams on them and I always looked at the Grand Princess cams for over a year after I returned from her.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
