If anyone is going on this cruise and would like to set up transportation from the airport with me please contact me. I'll be flying into ft lauderdale and might be renting a car/limo depending

Cool;

Say hello if you see us. I am tall, almost bald, LOUD!! 45 and usually wear a NC "North Carolina" baseball cap.

She's short and has long blonde hair. We'll be snorkling almost everywhere we go and I'll be scuba diving in Bahamas probably.

TIP: Buy your own snorkle gear before you go. I saw where they want 26.00 per person to rent. Way too much. Plus, if you have your own, you can go directly to the water, no lines.

$199, was that the 3 or 4 day? What month? Curious, because two years ago I paid three times as much for the 3 day in the month of July (prime time sailing). Where did you get them?

Thanks
Amy

4 Day leave May 19 return May23

I just kept watching Expedia and RCCL.com, also cruisedriect.com. I saw the pattern of them slashing prices about 2 weeks to 10 days before a cruise.

Tuesday, May 5 they brought it down to 199 for a very short time and I grabbed it.

Hope this helps

good advice I want to snorkle a bunch, my girlfriend never has, but I have in hawaii and loved it - never done scuba before I've seen the shelf fall off into darkness when snorkeling and that was kind of scary for me.

We will be the young ones partying to 22 well 23 on the 22nd and 23 respectively. I'm a 6' and brown hair and shes short and blonde too.

Yea thats pretty much what I did and once I saw it I put it on hold at rccl and then found a really great travel agent and transfered it to her (anyone in Champaign Illinois look up - Elizabeth - The Cruise Specialist - She's the BEST). Although I am kind of mad I didnt get an outside guarantee when they were $299. I found travelocity probable has the best deals out of all the online, except Rccl.com.

I am also a first time cruiser, but I've been around the world.

I have always been kinda shy of being stuck on a boat because I like to go "exploring" and making my own fun.

I figure you GOTTA see Atlantis and do a little gambling. WELL OK...... ALOT of gambling. I don't think we'll do Sting Ray city as i've read it gets kinda packed. I was reading that if you get on the first boat to CoCoCay that all of the rays and other fish will still be close to shore, so we plan on being on the first boat out there.

We are also gonna pack a couple of small boxes of cereal to "attract" the fish.

I'm a snorkeling junkie and if you plan on doing a bunch like I do, get yourself a Bouyancy Compensator "snorkeling vest". It sure makes things nice. You can just rest and float when you get a little tired. "Manual valve" they run anywhere from 29.99 to 59.99. Do a search and read about them if you've never tried them.

OK, I forgot.. Get some comfortable, slip on, kinda waterproof shoes to wear on the island. they are cheap and it will keep you from maybe getting your feet cut on rocks.

We got married in Key West. If you've never been there, Sloppy Joes is THE place to see "just to say you've been there in your latter years." That's where Hemmingway hung out. You can rent scooters near there also. You can go to the "Southern Most Point in The US" There's huge Bouy Looking marker there to get a picture. "don't let the Hobos take it, they are just looking for an easy buck for beer"

And of course The sunset at Mallory Square is world famous as are all of the vendors and Mimes and that type. Duval street is also a main stay with all of people looking at each other. That's the "Main drag" in Key West.

Hope to see you on board.
