Don't have one booked just yet, but maybe May.June we are looking.

We just went on the Disney Fantasy in September and the Disney Magic in April 2012... so maybe a different cruise line this time. :)

We just got back from 10 days on Vision to the Eastern Caribbean. The next cruise we have planned is December 2013 on Legend to the Southern Caribbean, but you never know...sometimes we just jump on one with a short notice deal, so could be sooner!

I have not been on a Princess Cruise in at least 20 years. I am sure things have changed a great deal. We will be on the Sapphire Princess at Christmas. We have an inside cabin. They are less expensive and have the advantage of being dark enough for us to take a nap in mid day so we can stay up later for the activities on board at night.
Has anyone been on a Princess Cruise at Christmas time?
What special things does Princess do for Christmas?
What do you like about Princess Cruise Line?
Thanks a bunch!

Update on my last post. We changed our Christmas Cruise from Zaandam to Sapphire Princess. Zaandam canceled the port of Mazatlan and that is our favorite port. Princess had a cruise out of LA that was just as good for ports and cost less, so we switched!
All other information is correct. Still love to cruise and Christmas is a fun time to do it. Anyone else in the group going on a Christmas Cruise?

Our next cruise is the week of Thanksgiving (Nov 17-24, 2012). We are going on the Oasis of the Seas. This will be my 2nd cruise ever. (My 1st was during Easter break in 2004 on the Golden Princess.) We have always wanted to take another cruise since we enjoyed the first one so much. Our chance came when my in laws decided they wanted to take the whole family on a cruise to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Today we are 106 days to embarkation. If anyone has any experiences on the Oasis that they would like to share, I'd love to hear about them!

Our next cruise is the Christmas Cruise on the Zaandam. I love Christmas Cruises. The ship does all the decorating and party planning and all I have to do is show up. This Cruise is out of San Diego and leaves on Dec 22. It is one week to the Mexican Riviera. This will serve as our Christmas gift to each other, so I don't have to shop or wrap a gift either. We love to cruise.
Is anyone else in this group going on this trip? It would be fun to meet some other Spark people!

Got back from our cruise on June 3. We loved Norwegian Star (except the food was just OK...a good thing if you think about it!). The crew on that ship was fantastic! Our cabin steward was wonderful. The cruise director and staff were every place and very accessible. Even the captain! One highlight is that my sister in law is a very active member of cruisecritics.com so we were invited to a private party through her with all the other cruisecritics.com members. We cruised to Bermuda and had great weather. The only day it rained was Saturday on our way back so we couldn't enjoy one last day out by the pool.

As far as the food goes, the fresh fruit and veggies were great. Can't mess up breakfast too much either, so I had a nice breakfast in the morning, a light lunch of salad and fresh fruit and then something that was just OK for dinner. I had no desire to seek out food later at night since it wasn't that great. My only weakness was the fresh popcorn that was in the Red Lion Pub every day...ugh. Well..can't be perfect. I didn't gain any weight on this cruise...a good thing!! My husband and I did a lot of walking almost every day.

My first experience with NCL Dawn was that it was just OK. My experience on the Star was that it was GREAT!

Going on my first cruise, Mariner of the Seas, Nov 25. My bestie and her husband are having their vow renewal in Jamaica! Looking to lose another 49 pounds (or close to that if I haven't met the mark yet) by the time I send of for my passport renewal end of August. I've been rabidly reading everything I can get my hands on about cruising!

Enjoy your cruise. NCL is our #4 also. Prefer Royal Caribbean, Holland America and the Princess. But, we would not turn down a good deal on NCL if one came up. We try to balance the costs with the itinerary and the cruise line. Sometimes one line is better than another that way. I have noticed that HAL is starting to do more and more round trip itinerarys that start and end in the USA. That is a good thing because when you add up all the costs, the flights really add up not to mention the airport hassle! We try to figure in all the costs including the taxes and fees, flight, airport transfer, taxi and hotel if we have to go a day ahead. We then do the comparison for the ports and length of time broken down by cost per day.
Our next cruise is in February on RCCL. Can't wait!

We changed our minds...we are still going to Bermuda, but going on NCL Star. We booked it last week!! WOO HOO!! emoticon Has anyone been on this ship before? We have been on the Dawn before. I must say...NCL is not our favorite line, but I like it..it's about 4th on our list of favorites. We just got a better deal than what Celebrity was offering.

Surprising my husband with a Christmas Cruise on the Maasdam out of Ft. Lauderdale. I am so excited. I don't know how long I will be able to keep this as a surprise. Things keep arriving in our email that would give it away if I didn't catch it first.
