  1. The Panama trip was 17 nights.
  2. The more I read, the more I seem to get overwhelmed, lol. I can usually create my own fun no matter the situation, just tell me one thing. Are drink packages availabe on HAL?
  3. By full Caribbean, I mean combining the eastern and western Caribbean. I'm not sure about the southern Caribbean.
  4. Right now it is between a full Caribbean cruise on Princess, full Caribbean with Cuba on HAL Veeldam, or possibly coming back with a return discount on Celebrity. I can't seem to find a full Caribbean cruise with Celebrity however.
  5. My last cruise was trans-panama via celebrity, and I had a fabulous time.
  6. I wouldn't say I'm looking for a lot of night life. Just as long as they have a bar onboard. Also, somehow I ended up on a guided trip once with a group of 50+ people and it almost ruined the trip for me. I think it was that anyway.
  7. I am in the process of selecting between one of two full caribbean cruises. One of them is on a Holland America ship and I have never sailed with them before. I was doing some research and came across an article that said HAL catered mostly to the "baby-boomer crowd". Is this true? I am in my thirties and do not want to feel "out of place".
  8. Actually, I have considered it. I was even in the process of booking one once, when somehow I found a deal on a panama canal cruise. Needless to say, I did not go up the Mississippi :o
  9. Thank you, I'll have to look into them. Do any of their ships depart from Texas or New Orleans? I would like my next cruise to be within driving distance, if possible.
  10. I've been looking at the smaller ship cruises for awhile now, mainly up in the Pacific Northwest, and it got me to thinking. I've only been on the large ships before(Vision of the Seas in 2005, and Eclipse last year.) I really liked the laid back atmosphere those ships had. How much different would it be cruiseing on a smaller ship? I don't like to go to the "formal" nights, so I prefer multiple options for dining. I know that a small ship won't have nearly as many options as a larger one, but I'm just wondering if there would be another option.
  11. I may be wrong(haven't planned a cruise in years), but I could have sworn that Celebrity, and maybe Windstar had some ships going to the Canal, from Texas. Can anyone confirm/deny this?
  12. I'm trying to book a cruise to the Panama Canal, in either September or October 2015. I would like to leave from either a Texas port, or New Orleans. In other words, somewhere I would be able to get to fairly quick. Can anyone help me out with this? All I seem to be able to find are cruises leaving from the West coast or East coast.
  13. Understandable, I was just speaking from my own personal experiences.
  14. Getting an undesireable room, I don't think would be a problem. On the last cruise I went on, I barely spent any time in the room. A pair of earplugs should solve any noise issues, I figure.
  15. That's what I was afraid of. How much cheaper could a week out get me?
