Grr, the notification went to spam for whatever reason, so sorry for the delay...
I'm willing to consider Princess but it seems like most of the ones I want to go on are out of Florida. My first-ever cruise was on Princess, and I'd like to do it again, but I'd rather go on a different ship than Caribbean Princess, which I think is the main one going out of NYC right now. Plus, I don't think I'll be able to take that much time off work for a 9-day cruise in Sept since I just did a 10-day and we're driving to Fort Lauderdale for a Carnival cruise next Feb.
But we ended up booking a balcony on Gem...decided that the extra room probably wasn't going to be worth it for just two people, rather spend the money on excursions and wine.
I think I'd rather save and splurge later on a suite that has suite privileges, you know? I'm DYING to do that.
