Well, it's not a cruise and it's not the color of the Caribbean, but it sure helps! We are only about a half hour away and are here now. Like I've said before, do not judge NJ by the turnpike!

Well today we got ambitious and traveled 85 miles further south than the beach above to the very edge of the state..Cape May, NJ. It's a few degrees cooler and enough breeze for folks to keep kites going. This is one of our favorite towns. Cute shops, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, hotels, etc.

@CrimsonCruiser & @MelKaps  Welcome to the RCB forums!

@Brobbins246  We booked a Nov 2020 cruise [460 days away] months ago.  Before our Jun Anthem cruise.  And we just YOLO booked the Anthem this Oct [86 days out].  I am still trying to figure out how to pay for it!  Also considering trying to squeeze in the Oasis trip out of NJ next May.  If booking a cruise doesn't work for you (I understand) then all of the other non-cruise recommendations above are good substitutes.  As you probably know better than I, there is a lot to learn here on the RCB and it's a great pastime.

I have an unusual (and somewhat first world problem) solution to our wait.

We are 108 days away from our sailing (first RC cruise too) and to be honest, its the least prepared that i will ever be for a cruise/holiday. (that said.... I am an over preparer for holidays).

My wife and I are in the middle of building a new house and whilst its under construction, we are living with my Mother In Law!!!  So the cruise was designed for us to have 2 weeks away from living at the in-laws in the middle of construction.  The problem is:  the house is going to be finished about 3 months ahead of schedule and we will be moving in BEFORE the cruise.

So i am spending my time planning our move in activities and will then use the cruise to just sleep off the hectic last few months.

In short: If you want to stand the wait for the cruise.... build a new house! hahahaha! (not the cheapest way around the situation though)

Congratulations !  No way in the world a new build in the US would be done 3 months ahead of schedule.  😉😉

Enjoy your distraction and relaxing cruise.

To be honest....  we had low expectations.

Also... the Australian property market finally fell through its backside over the last year (we avoided the GFC downturn).  So contractors are looking for work and are quicker to get jobs done.

As for the cruise.  Well...i am a little bit excited.  On top of the cruise itself - A repositioning cruise with a LOT of sea days, my wife and I also were able to get business class airfares from Australia to Singapore to join the cruise (thanks Frequent Flyer points).  so its going to be great! 🙂
