Mayabelle,
If you go into the Carnival Site. Carnival Cruiseline.com you can get more information about the different tours that our cruise will be doing. Just click on ths Spirit site and when the itinerary site comes up, if you hit on the Barbados or St.Maarten, or Martinique you will get a listing of tours available. Whew---did that all in one sentence.LOL...
Hope this helps you out.

Now let's get down to business cruisemates.
There is 4 more months to go.
Who is ready to pack besides me.
I have already started to get my clothes together and making sure I have everything I need to pack.
Just put the finishing touch on my cosmetic items and put it in my suitcase. These go in first so I don't forget them. Also put in my nightlight, hand fan, and disposable camera.
Next month I start with the shoes etc. by the time we are down to the last 2 weeks I am all packed and can then help my family to do their packing.
It gets more exciting to start packing a bit earlier, knowing that the last few weeks before sailing you are completely packed and ready to go.
First comes Labor Day, then Halloween, then Thanksgiving and then our cruise. Before you know it, it is time to board the ship.

I just called Carnival about what I thought was a price change in our cruise(the 12/17/03 Spirit), and ended up saving $300.00. I got $200.00 in the room with two people, and only $100.00 in the room with three people because the third person rate had gon up. So yall might want to check your rates too.

Hi again Christopher,
We are the ones that are keeping this countdown going....
Also glad to see more people joining in.....
There are also a few new names that are going that are posted on cruise critic board. Told them to join us here on this site.
I too checked the rates again after reading your message. Don't know why but it seems that the rates went up a bit here in FL.
I originally booked with a 1A and was boosted up to a 5A obstructed cabin (ours have a view to the right side which is fine with me..Light, and living here in Fl. I know what the water looks like.LOL) I paid complete (only without Ins. which I can take a month before if I want) for 499.00 complete.....Price for the 5A cabin is now 848.17......without ins.. Big savings for me, plus a will be getting a few bonus in my cabin being that I booked with them so many times. Also booked 15 cabins for them last Nov.
Last time they gave me champagne,free photo,key chains,carn.hat & a few other goodies.
Keep checking rates tho. if it goes down again just call again and they will adjust them or give you on board credit.

Hello cruisemates!
Can anyone tell me about the parking situation at the Port of Miami? Is it easy to do, or should we park off site and take a taxi?
Thanks for your help!

Re:parking in Port of Miami
They do have a hugh parking lot there, but you have to be there early in order to get up front parking. Otherwise you will have a good walk from the parking lot to entrance of the terminal.....
Even when you do get a front parking there still is a bit of a walk to the terminal.
It is not so bad tho, because you drop off your luggage in front of the terminal first then you go park your car.
I don't know what you mean about parking off site, unless you mean at a hotel where it would be safe. Then I would take a cab and have them drop me off right at the door.
First find out what they will charge you for the cab fare. If you are from out of town and are staying in a hotel see if they have car service to the ports, it maybe cheaper.

And today makes it 89 days..............
That makes it less than 3 months now, and that sounds better.................
Hope all our northern cruisemates are safe and did not get caught in that bad hurricane.

Hi Spirit cruisers,
I am not on this cruise, but have just booked a Spirit cruise for March 2004. Tia, I noticed that you did the Western route on the Spirit before and wondered if you could tell me a little about it. Do you remember some of the excursions that you took and did you enjoy them?
Hope you all have a wonderful time in December. I'll be anxious to hear your comments when you return.

We too just paid the balance on our two rooms. Should be getting the docs soon.

72 days to go!

8 Nights, only have to get up early twice! Sun in the morning on the way, sun in the afternoon on the way back. Calypso music wafting down from the pool deck. Coronas klinking in the ice bucket as the sun shines off the azure sea........

Cheers,
