Hey Everybody, I know this topic has been discussed before, but I hope you will give me some specific advice: 1) My wife and I want to cruise with our 2 kids on Caribbean Princess December 17, 2005 (returning on 12/24 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ so technically NOT a holiday cruise). WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for 1 outside balcony and 1 inside across the hall or nearby. Kids will be 18 and 16 when we cruise. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m trying to decide whether or not to book now or wait until later. What do you think? 2) Because Port Everglades is so close to FLL airport, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m thinking about NOT booking air with the cruise. It looks like I will save much more by booking myself than with the cruise. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have more flexibility with the flights, but I understand I will give up the added insurance of missed flights / lost luggage. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m thinking travel insurance and a cab to the port will be much cheaper than cruise line airfare. What do you think? Thanks in advance!
