Navigator of the Seas 12/28/09 - New Years
 
Anyone else going? Figured I'd check since it's coming up so quick!!

I leave in 11 days, possibly 10 if we change the flights and head down on Christmas. I've never done a cruise for New Years so I'm pretty excited! It's going to Belize & Cozumel. In Belize we're probably just hanging in the port area. In Cozumel I believe we're going to Chakkanaab (sp?) to swim with the manatees, something new that they just started.

As of this morning I'm 99% sure my boyfriend is coming also. I'll know for sure on Thursday. It would be his first cruise - so that's super exciting :D

Anybody been on a New Years cruise? What was it like? Also, has anybody cruised with their boyfriend/girlfriend before?

Stephanie: When are you guys heading to FL?

wow thats so awesome. i dont really have any input since ive never gone over new years or with a boyfriend. i was gonna letcha know about the ship cause ive been on it, but so have you... 3 times!! haha
whats it like going on the same ship over and over again?

cruiseeeeaddict December 15th, 2009 04:37 PM

it's kind of nice, since you already know your way around and have somewhat of a routine. you don't have to spend that first day trying to figure out where everything is and stuff, so you can get right to the fun!

Tropicalstephy December 15th, 2009 08:05 PM

I'm going! haha
We are going down to Miami on the 27th and I cannot wait! There has been so much drama at school since the band trip and I can't wait to leave the snow and the freezing cold! haha
I'm super excited! haha

cruiseeeeaddict December 15th, 2009 08:26 PM

i can't wait to get out of the cold either!!
it's going down to 18 degrees tonight :shock:
my mom talked to the driver we use in ft. lauderdale today, and he said it was 85 degrees there!

mmerali December 15th, 2009 08:33 PM

85ish when I left Boca Raton for Costa Rica last Sunday (Boca Raton is about 20 mins north of the port).

By the by, if any of you would like to hang out while you're down there just let me know, I'll be down until the 6th of Jan before I have to head back to school.

Tropicalstephy December 15th, 2009 08:50 PM

Yea I'm so excited it's supposed to be like 7 degrees here tonight... that's too cold!

oh my gosh! I'm so jealous you have no idea! haha plus there's the whole wind chill thing which makes it so much colder. Like right now its like 10 degrees but it feels like -5. ouch haha

mmerali December 15th, 2009 09:27 PM

Go to college in the south :) No more layering!

But seriously, cold weather is no fun.

Thatpaigechicck December 15th, 2009 09:33 PM

You guys' port is Miami? Mine too.
But i have yet to find another person on my cruise. Keep an eye out for me?

cruiseeeeaddict December 15th, 2009 09:35 PM

yes - we're out of miami.

what ship are you going on? if you don't have any luck here try checking the roll calls on cruisecritic, a similar website.

45 degrees sounds great right about now! i never thought i'd say that..
i definitely can't wait to get out of this cold & it's not even full on winter yet.

Thatpaigechicck December 15th, 2009 09:39 PM

Liberty of the Seas.
Yeah, ive tried cruise critic but there are barely any teens on there.
This is the first site where I actually have even spoken to anyone. haha

Yeah its still hot where I am. But I totally agree on escaping all the drama.

cruiseeeeaddict December 15th, 2009 09:42 PM

hmm, have you tried looking for a facebook group? that's if you have a facebook. sometimes there is a huge group, other times there isn't one. i've seen it go both ways.

don't worry too much about meeting people beforehand though, there will be tons of teens on the ship due to it being a holiday & school break!

Thatpaigechicck December 15th, 2009 09:49 PM

good point. ill look for a facebook group....
wow 500 results. great. hahaha.

yeah. im just hoping they arent all like 11 years old.

cruiseeeeaddict December 15th, 2009 10:06 PM

i went on liberty last april vacation and there were hundreds of teens! the captain announced that there was something like 250 between the ages of 15-17 years old. since it was also a school vacation week i'm guessing your sailing will be pretty similar.

Tropicalstephy December 15th, 2009 10:11 PM

I'm pretty pumped for meeting new people haha that's probs one of my favorite things!

Thatpaigechicck December 16th, 2009 06:22 AM

Yeahh im counting on the holiday. :)
Gooood. Woah 250 passengers is a lot.
What time does your ship leave?

mmerali December 16th, 2009 10:06 AM

All ships typically leave around 5pm. Unless its an actual port of call (some ships do make ports of call in Miami/FLL)

cruiseeeeaddict December 16th, 2009 10:10 AM

Yeah - I'm pretty sure it sails around 5.
Normally they leave one after the other.
I'll wave to you from the deck, lol!

Thatpaigechicck December 16th, 2009 10:24 AM

haha.
ill try to get on cruisemates since we'll be sailing around the same time.
although mine is the 27th. :/
im so excited, and i have to take my final in like 3 hours.
ahhh. so ready to finally relax.

Finals blow, but the reward after is oh so sweet. Where do you go to school that you are still taking finals?

Thatpaigechicck December 16th, 2009 10:48 AM

yeah thats what i keep telling myself.
'just make it through this week and then...you cruise'

florida! dsoa. its the school of the arts.
a lot of my friends actually go to fsu who went there.

Yeah, I was pretty much the same way for my finals week (except I didn't get a cruise, but I am in Costa Rica atm, which is pretty much just as nice). Just don't forget to focus on your finals. Push the cruise to the back of your head for now, then let it all hit you after the last final. Makes it feel like its pretty much there already.

And thats pretty cool; a couple of people on here actually go to FSU and other Florida schools, I've met one or two.

Thatpaigechicck December 16th, 2009 11:12 AM

Okay, im officially going to try and push finals i mean the cruise out of my head. I'll get out of school at 3:40 and it starts at 12. i can do this. --costa rica sounds nice right about now though.

yeah i wanna go to fsu and major in communications.

cruiseeeeaddict December 16th, 2009 02:48 PM

good luck on your finals!
every final finished is one step closer to the cruise :D
guess there's no waving since you're leaving on the 27th, lol.

Thatpaigechicck December 16th, 2009 05:06 PM

thanks! :D
3 more finals!!!!!
lol yeah, i for some reason kept reading the 27th!
wishing for things that arent there i guess. haha.

mmerali December 16th, 2009 09:02 PM

3 more isn't horrible. Good luck!

What do you have to take?
