Good morning, 

I'm new to Cruiseline.com and just wanted to say hello.  My name is Lynn and I live in Tampa, Florida with my husband and 7 children (well, our oldest is 25 and married so I guess I really can't count her as a child but you know what I mean, lol).

 Anyway, my husband and I got hooked on cruising a few years ago and now try to take a cruise every January.  We will be on the Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas out of Fort Lauderdale on January 24th, 2016.  This is our first time on Royal Caribbean and I'm very excited.  Our previous 4 cruises have been on Carnival and while we have had a wonderful time on each cruise, we decided we wanted to spread our wings and try something different.  It's so easy to get locked into a single cruise line because of the loyalty programs so I had to just push myself to get out of that frame of mind and be willing to branch out.  I'm so glad I did and can hardly wait for our upcoming Allure cruise.  For those of you that have cruised on Royal Caribbean, any tips would be appreciated.  :)

Looking forward to learning this site and reading about other cruising experiences.  :)
