I am thinking of the Dawn in March 08 for an Eastern Caribbean cruise with my 2 sisters and mom - she will turn 70 onboard if I plan it right.... This will only be my 2nd cruise (1st for them) - I could still use a lot of advice.
With bringing mom along, I'm thinking more of excursions - shes not an old lady be any means - but still I don't want her exhausted!
Any advice is always welcome- I love cruise-chat, everyone has such good info!!
Also what about a mini suite for the 4 of us? and any ship insider info.... Thanks

If you're wanting a quad on NCL for spring break you need to boot it very soon if there are even any still available. They go very fact and the affordable categories go even faster. NCL also takes lower categories to Guarantee status very early, eliminating those cats from ability for quad bookings.

Cheers, Neil

bfein, what types of tours interest all of you, Mom especially? History, beaches, shopping, etc.?

I agree with Neil and Penny that if you are looking at a cabin for four, book it soon.
Happy cruising!

We are - thanks...just waiting for the sisters 'go ahead'.

I can see her on a glass bottom boat - or a tour of the island and shopping.... We're really not beach people -sounds crazy, I know - but with a history of skin cancer, we play it safe!!
I've been to the Private Island so I know what to expect there - but the rest is foreign territory :-) Thanks
