Hi everyone,

I'm coming over from Cruise Critic and was glad to find out about this board from Hopeful Henry! Would you believe they banned me beause I posted too much my first week there?!?! Shocked What's the point of having a message board if I can't ask questions?! Henry assures me that it's different over here.

So, just be forewarned, I will be asking LOTS of questions!

As I said, I'm a first timer and I'll be posting this over on the Princess board too since that's our first cruise. We're going on our first cruise during the holidays on Grand Princess in 2008 and, we're excited!!

So here are my first set of questions:

1) Everyone keeps telling us to get to Florida at least one day early (we're traveling from New York City). Can someone recommend a hotel that is close to the pier and it won't cost an arm and a leg in cab fare to get from the hotel to the pier. I've never been to Fort Lauderdale and the only knowledge of Florida I have is of Walt Disney World. It doesn't have to be fancy, just clean and in a decent location.

2) I'm traveling with my parents and my Grandmother, we currently have traditional first sitting, but, I've been told to consider Anytime Dining. In your opinions, which is better?

3) Formal nights - I'm completely lost. I mean, I know enough to get a long, formal gown but, how dressy does the ship get? Will I be out of place with a gown from JCPenney or Macys?

4) JetBlue - Would you chance waiting for JetBlue who only put their seats up for sale a few months before departure or would you book with one of the other carriers who allow you to book almost a year in advance?

Ok I'll stop now, I don't want to scare everyone here like I did on Cruise Critic!

PostSubject: Booked!   Grand Princess - December 19 2008 - Cruise Freek Forums Icon_minitimeFri Oct 19, 2007 11:40 am

Booked direct with Princess - found the "secret" link over on Cruise Critic thanks to a cleaver poster to find this place! I love it!!!

Finally a place were we can talk freely!!

Anyhow, I'm Brian, I'll be 31 at the time of sailing. I'll be traveling with my sister and her husband, his parents and my parents (plus any wayward family members or friends who decide to join us along the way).

I've sailed Princess 4 times so far but this is my first holiday cruise and I'm super excited about it!

Yes it will!! Can't wait to meet everyone and take advantage of this great itinerary. I was thrilled to see a 14 night holiday cruise, for once, Princess is giving us what we want!! Will there be a meet and mingle type of thing? Would anyone beside me be interested in trying to organize one?
