Cruises Booked, Planned and Wishful Thinking

When we all aren't booking and planning our cruises, we live vicariously through those that are. This thread is for those that want to share their plans.

We are booked on the new NCL Encore for 7 days on February 23

We are planning an 18 day RT San Diego to Hawaii next November 3.

What do you guys have going on!

So you actually have a side2side; anyway that was what we were told when we switched ships. Sounds like a good time will be had!

We are booked on NCL to Hawaii January 2020, then Dubai, on MSC December 2020 (not sure if it's on Lirica or Bellissima). We plan on cruising Alaska 2021.

Oh wow .. just did it .. booked a bucket list .. thanks to some real nice discounts and $50 deposit .. booked the Med cruise. Sept 02 - 13 2021 on the Getaway. 11 day Greek Isles and Italy from Rome. Woohoo.

I just upgraded my aft balcony on the Carnival Freedom to a Premium Vista (aft wrap) and I am super excited! I just happened to stumble across one yesterday that was available and it happened to be right across the hall from our friends room. Never been in anything other than an interior so April can't get here soon enough! Big Smile

GOOD FOR YOU! Learned a long time ago book em when they're available. He who hesitates, well....That's how we booked those aft wraparounds on CCL RADIANCE and VISTA, but those two are in 11/21 and 2/22. We were too late for one when we decided to try CCL again after a bunch of years with NCL. Had to "settle" for an "extended aft balcony" on VISTA 2/21. Yeah, that's some "settle" isn't it?? That's when we started exploring other options with them, (and yes, "stumbled" is the right word) and found those "corner wraps" available. Wife and I agreed we're already certifiable when it comes to this stuff, and we rationalized it away as clearly it was "meant to be". Pounded them keys!! You're going on a different ship, but considering what you were used to, I'd respectfully suggest you rearrange your budget. eliminate unnecessary things, like food, so you can cruise more!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
