    Sailing down the Mississippi is the best! amazing to be on a ship that cruises so close to land on both sides.

    Sounds like a Gr8 retirement cruise to me. :boogie: As for the Social Security part hopefully it will be. :doubleup:

    Will keep EVERYONE in the loop when something gets finalized by year end. :biggrin:

    Would for sure be interested in joining in on this group cruise. It's about a 7 hour drive for us to New Orleans, we usually try to get there at least once a year. Have sailed out of the Big Easy twice, but not on R.C. It's an experience sailing down the Mississippi--very interesting I thought.

    Your special Lady is right E....NO is a wonderful place to cruise out of. Have done it 2x and would love to do it again. Now to win that lottery as we would LOVE to be there for the last Hurrah...and everyone in between.

    Would love to have EVERYONE along on this one and the ship IS BIG Enough for it. :biggrin: Reality does enter though and life does get in the way whether it be with other plans or allocation of budget $$$. If we win the lottery we will pay for EVERYONE'S cabin so then all U will have to work on is the other issues in life. :boogie:

    There has been a small amount of research done and it looks like Mardi Gras if 2/12/2013, Easter is on 3/31/2013 and the Jazz festival is usually in April so we are thinking the 1st week in March is a midpoint in between Mardi Gras and Easter and might be the best. :whistle: More details will follow the Bucket List Cruise so stay tuned. :clap:

    The Jazz festival is fantastic. Once I took a cruise out of Tampa that stopped in New Orleans as a port of call many years ago. It was the weekend of the Jazz festival and there was so much entertainment going on. Hotels would be hard pickings at that time of the year.

    Keep in mind its a 7 day cruise. If you go past the beginning of March, plan on many spring breakers onboard with tons of kids.

    Gr8 points Maureen and one of the reasons why we are leaning toward the March 2, 2013 sailing. :doubleup:

    No cruising for us in 2013 - son has started grad school - so we can't make any plans past our 2012 Ruby cruise until he is done. But....we may be able to drive down to NOLA and have a mini-meet!! :doubleup:

    Sounds like a plan as there will NO doubt be plenty of Pre Cruise celebrations ongoing for a few days prior to the cruise. :boogie:

    I just looked at the RCI page, and saw that this cruise is already open for booking. When can we sign up with the group? We don't want to miss out on the really good cabins.
