Hi! I'm Tannie. My husband Jeff and I did our inaugural cruise around Hawaii for our honeymoon in 1990 aboard the now retired SS Constitution. 

 

We have been avid Vegas travellers for 25 years but then I won a cruise (air included) on the Jewel of the Seas, in a balcony cabin, and I was hooked. We are spending Halloween (this year) on the Freedom of the Seas and are booked for an Alaskan cruise with Princess in 2017.

 

We live on the West Coast of Canada and between the airfare and exchange rate, we can not do more than one cruise a year, but would love to.

We'll be on her too... Bring your costumes...

Hi y'all!

 

My name is Sven, from the Netherlands.

I've been lurking around this blog en forums for quite some time now and finally decided to join.

 

Ever since my first (Alaskan) cruise on the Serenade back in 2004 I've been kind off obsessed with RC cruise ships.

Next year I'm likely going on my second cruise, which (even though I haven't booked) I'm already very excited for.

Hallo, Sven!

 

While different regions see different promotions, starting very soon we can expect to start seeing some incentives relating to the holidays.  It  remains to be seen what they are, but as you've been lurking you probably know it's best to book early, so booking soon, combined with upcoming sales could work out nicely for you.

Hi everyone!

I live with my wife near Utica, NY. I've been cruising since I was a kid when my mom was a travel agent.

I've been watching the RC Periscopers for a while now and plan to broadcast a bit on Anthem next month. I just recently discovered the blog, podcasts, and Matt's daily scopes. I was so impressed by all of this I got in on the Insider program.

Hello everyone!

 

Greetings from Dallas, TX! My wife and I are brand new to the world of cruising and we're definitely excited for our first cruise. We have two cruises planned this year. Our very first one in April and we're boarding Liberty of the Seas and heading to a bigger ship in December when we go on the Oasis. We're huge fans of the podcast, and listening to it makes me feel like I'm already a cruise expert. I am too excited to try Sabor and drink a Labadoozee (sp?) because of all the positive things I hear about them. Can't wait to hear some tips from you seasoned cruisers and I'm looking forward to possibly cruise with a few of you someday.

Welcome Pamela, I can help you with the cruise history.  At the top of the page click the little arrow next to your Pamela27 and select My Profile.  Then in the top right corner of the page click on the Edit my Profile. Then on the left side of the page click Signature.  Scroll down to the bottom and you will see a box you can type in.  Once finished click on Save Changes and you're done.

To comment, just scroll to the bottom of the page you are viewing and start typing or if you want to quote someone click the Quote button in the bottom right of their post.

I am jealous of another Diamond member, I'm Emerald and only about 15 days away.  If I can talk my wife into some more cruises....

Hi I'm Michael. Taking my first RCCL cruise with my son Daniel on March 12 on Liberty. He'll turn 13 the day we're in Cozumel. 

Would love to hear from anyone else on this cruise. 

A little about me. I'm a surgical nurse. IN my spare time I like to play ice hockey. Looking forward to trying out the ice on board, bring my personal blades for it. 

Daniel is a musician in addition to being a student. We're planning to do some scuba diving on the trip. 

Hope to hear from some people .

Welcome, since you play hockey you will probably be disappointed by the ice on the ship.  Its not very big and there is no Zamboni to clean it.  Not sure how they do it.  I used to skate back in the day, played hockey when I was 13, personally, I wouldn't carry my skates.  Save the room and the weight.  But if you really want to by all means bring them.

Cozumel is a good place, they don't hound you like Jamaica.  There are good excursions and plenty of places doing scuba.  Just make sure you get a boat trip, we did one off the beach and it was all rocks.

Hope Daniel has a good birthday.

Thank you. Yeah, I could tell from the pics the ice wasn't that big and not expecting as good as I normally have. But I can at least get out and scratch up a bit. I'll probably still bring my own blades. Having had my own skates for about 30+ years, the thought of rental skates makes me cry... LOL

We've got our excursions all booked. Boat dives in Cozumel and Grand Cayman and a catamaran trip in Jamaica.
