We're Doing it Again

After five years of cruising, we broke our streak last year and had to cancel last years cruise due to circumstances beyond mine or Michelle's control. It wasn't a financial issue, it was a employment issue and having enough time off.

Last year if we were going to miss a cruise was the best year to miss, as it didn't make it to the Caribbean and had to go to New York City for a couple of days and then out into the ocean because of all of the Hurricanes that were coming through. We would never had made our intended destination.

We contemplated on going this year and see sawed whether we would go next Spring or next fall. The answer is neither, we're going this September again (as in 55 days) once again on the Carnival Pride. Our regular stops of Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay (my favorite) and Freeport are on our agenda.

Booking so late we didn't get the options we wanted and almost had to go to the back of the ship again, as everything in the midship was sold out. Until I refreshed my browser and found 1 mid ship balcony on the 6th floor on the side of the ship we prefer came open. Needless to say we grabbed it and it is now ours. The final payment date is fast approaching for when the cruise needs to be paid in full (we paid in full last night) and this is when some cabins start to open up, so we managed to take advantage of it and grab a last minute canceler.

We are already gold members of the VIFP club, with 35 days at sea already. This will give us 42 and we are well on our way to Platinum.

Woot Woot.
