    none of the big names are room/board only, there are always activities and such..... but you can get on some of the smaller no-name ships, and it can be quite a surprise.

    I enjoy cruises. but I'd really don't need the balcony, and I could do with out the coat/tie fanfare at night....but I understand why they have dress codes. on our last cruise they kicked a man out of the dinning area two nights in a row when he came in wearing shorts and a golf shirt. He made a scene on the second night, and the captain came over and escorted him out.

    windstar isn't "kid friendly" but not bad price wise...Since we are taking the kid I gotta have a ship that is kid friendly(but not quite Disney kid friendly), which means it will have to be one of the main players. I'd hate to book a trip and have my kid miserable while we are at sea...

    My daughter absolutely loved Celebrity...it was all I could do to get her off the boat for shore excursions...

    Tampa is nice. You can skip over the pan handle and go to Thomas beach. You got me thinking about cruising so i called to book a cruise for December 08, there's nothing out of New York:confused: they(RC) told me there going out of a port in New Jersey(Cape Liberty).I dont know why no more NY but im going to find out soon. This is a 10 day cruise(Puerto Rico)(St thomas)(Dominican Rep)(Haiti) Two days out, Two Back.The ship is the Explorer of the seas(nice ship) did her once already.Please try a Balcony on your next cruise. If not for you--------- Think of the children.

    you guys should look into chartering a yacht my parents did that years ago when they retired they enjoyed it much better than going on a cruise with several
    hundred other people
