It was this time last year that I was in the same predicament. I had my heart set on a 10 day Southern Caribbean with the ports of Curacao and Isle Margarita being the two definate siteseeing ports for me. Then the RC Raidiance had a GREAT deal on the West bound 14 day Panama. I couldn't pass it up, since I ended up paying close to same as the 10 day cruise. Repositionings seem to give the best for the buck, especially when booking a year in advance OR last minute. We'll be going from Miami to San Diego, so get to take in Caribbean (Aruba),Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico (Huatulco, Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas). AND Aruba is a great port for night life, with most ships staying there till midnight.
