Default ??????? for Dave

Dave---just wondering if the boys are going with on the Mariner? I know they usually cruise with you in May since it's around the time of your youngest's birthday. Also, what type of digital camera do you use? I am thinking of getting a new digital camera and I'm looking for feedback. Thanks.

Yes, they are going with me and we are getting excited about the trip. I love my NIKON COOLPIX. I have a 3700 and a 4600. I am sure now they make they higher. Easy to use and great pictures. I bought one and the day I bought it they were having a drawing for a free camera. They called me the next day to tell me I had one the free camera. SO now I have a back up.

When do you cruise again?

I'm looking to cruise in May 2008. Right now my kids are in college in Tampa so most of my vacation time is visiting them and setting them up each new school year. My son graduates in December 2007 and my daughter in May 2008. Looking to do a 7 night cruise out of Florida as a graduation gift to both. Not sure which line or ship we will do but I know that you highly recommend Royal Caribbean over Carnival.

Thanks for the info on the camera also. Can't wait to see your photos after your cruise. What differences to you see in the two cameras that you have? Do you use one more over the other?

I use the 4600 mostly. More MEGAPIXELS I think for May 2008 I am contemplating Freedom class. Perhaps Mariner again. I have a feeling I am going to have a great time on Mariner this year! I like Port Canaveral. I will look at intineraries when I get back from this one. I want to do an Eastern next time.

Yes, but only in the Winter. They are bring a Vision class (Grandeur) to Tampa to fo 4-5 nighters next year but not until later December. The Navigator is going to be doing 4-5 nighters from Ft Lauderdale next November.

Default Pictures in e-mail

The pictures in your e-mails are great. How do you insert them at that size? The Board Faqs suggest opening a gallery, then inserting them; but so far I cannot seem to open a gallery (I hit submit and nothing happens)

Your photos don't seem to be in the galleries so I'm wondering how you do it.

DTW showed me how to post without using the gallery; if you have your pictures on a website, i.e. photobucket, myspace or photo website, you can just right click to get to that pictures prooperties and past them between teh IMG codes

Default Hi Dave

Dave,

Good to see you on Cruisemates as well. I have the Mariner booked for this October and it should be fun. I have been on many cruises but believe it or not this will be the first Explorer Class ship, usually do the Vision Class including the Enchantment which is pretty nice now as you know.

Vince,

My first Voyager class also. The Navigator will be doing 4-5 nighters in December out of Ft Lauderdale. That will be a nice alternative to the Enchantment and Sovereign.

Vince: When in Oct. are you sailing the Mariner? We're leaving
Oct. 14th on Mariner to Eastern Caribbean with a group.This is
our second time on Mariner and like it very much...almost as much
as Freedom!

Does anyone have an opinion of whether the pool deck rocks
on the Freedom? Of course, just for DTW's education.
