We are quite new in cruising. Our first cruise was in november 2001 on the Explorer and our second was in december 2005 on Voyager. Now we are going on our third and fourth cruise. We embark nov. 2 on a 10 night eastern cruise. Right after we disembark in Ft. Lauderdale nov. 12 we hop in a cab to port of Miami and are going on a 4 night cruise to Bahamas on Majesty. After the cruises we haven't really any plans. Maybe we rent a car and drive to the gulfcoast or maybe we stay in Miami - who knows? It's in one way a little scary not to have any plans at all and yet quite exiting not to have any plans.
It could be fun to meet somebody on one of the cruises we could spend some time with during or after the cruises until we return to Sweden on november 22.
Thanks for the hint, things like that is difficult to know unless you are a "regular-cruiser". People from Europe often book their holiday as a packet-deal (sorry about my spelling), but we booked everything ourselves on the webb (planeticket, cruises and the first hotell).
