VickiD59, unless we live in south Florida, the pickings are pretty slim.
We only have 1 ship that sails out of Mobile, and doesn't offer a whole bunch of itineraries either. I was hoping more would go out of Mobile, New Orleans, or Charleston, but doesn't seem like that will happen anytime soon. New York surprises me, though, with all the people in the surrounding area. I guess it's because of the weather. South Florida, you're almost assured of decent weather. Like Jim said, both Royal and Carnival are good lines.
