Hi Bill,
Glad to meet you. My DH and I are always excited to meet new cruisers. I am on a thread on CruiseCritic.com and we have about 25 people already. I will keep you updated so you can join us on our meet and mingle. Have you been on many cruises, and have you been on any of the newer Carnival ships like Valor? We've been on Fantasy and Paradise when it was non-smoking, but not on the newer ships. We tend toward Royal Caribbean in the last few years.
Talk to you soon.
Kim & Les

Hey Les,

Nice to meet you as well. Sounds great. Looking forward to meeting some folks. Yea, we have been on many cruises. Most recently, The Legend. What a beautiful ship. We've also been on Destiny. Mostly on Fantasty class ships over the years. We were really leaning towards RCCL, but got a great deal on this sailing. We are cruising for the first time in a Cat. 11, suite. YAHOO!! Talk soon, nice meeting you again.

Bill

Hi Billy,
this is Kim. Wow, a suite. We may need to visit you guys and see it. We have been on 8 RCCL cruises and love them all, especially the Voyager class ships with a Royal Promenade. You haven't sailed until you've done them. Wanted to get on the Freedom of the seas for oct. 1 but everything sold out but insides. Will try the first of the year. Look forward to meeting you two. What is your girlfriends name?

Hey Kim, nice to meet you as well. My girlfriend's name is Debi and this was her idea for my 40th. so said okay...lol. Yea, she thought a suite would make the perfect week and we are so excited. We tried to get the same RCCL sailing, with the same results. We are anxious to try them. That Promenade looks awesome!! Well, running off to work. Nice chatting with ya. Have a great weekend!

Has anyone been to the other islands that we are going to and have any good suggestions for excursions? I have been to the Cayman islands three times but I have never been to the other islands.

In Belize, you HAVE to do the Cave Tubing Excursion. This is a must see, Several options:
1. Book with Carnival or
2. There is a company xstreamcavetubing. At this website: .Extreme Cave Tubing
3. Do it all on your own.

I have heard raves about the 'extreme' tubing company plus they are approx $35pp cheaper than Carnival. Here is the draw-back....if for some reason, the excursion is canceled, ie; weather or what have you, Carnival will refund your monies. I'm not sure of the other's policy

In Roatan, I plan on doing the jungle canopy tour. This looks excellent.
Costa Maya, I have no idea. Probably just staying on the ship.

I stumbled on a website: Valor Valor cruise that is outstanding. This guy, Jason, documents all happenings in their cruises and are a joy to watch.

Hope I was able to help Take care and looking forward to talking more.

Billy
