I want to go in summer of 2004, want to take my grand daughter along she is 12 so if you have a grand daughter her age and want to bring her along GREAT!! I have taken her on 2 cruises and she is shy and does not meet anyone till the middle of the trip, then its time to go home. I am a non -smoker, social drinker, do love those Margaritas!! Itinery, I prefer out of east coast I live in NYC, area flying is ok if the cruise is reasonable price for the days available, we have several ports here to choose from Baltimore Philly or NYC. i want to go 7 or 8 days, 10 could be done, I like to read , casino, and just veg. when I am on vacation. I am not a excursion person on shore , just go with the flow of things that come along. very laid back, enjoy dressing up going to dinner and early breakfast, sit down prefered over buffet.if you want more info or are interested in doubling up contact me Peachcrek@aol.com My favorite Port of embarking is New Orleans, but not with the children I do love NOLA.
