MexicanTiki and I would be interested in a SoCal cruise, as long as you plan it during warm weather season. We desert rats don't take too well to cold.



WooHooWahine and I just got back from a 7-day New England/Canada cruise out of New York...As beautiful as it was, we were both thinking "Mexican Riviera"!!!!! Even the 3 day out of LA would be fun with a bunch of friends on board!!

DIN-O-MITE!!
Seeing that WooHoo is the brains for travel arraingements around here...
When is a good time, weather wise, for this cruise? (We enjoyed the New Year's one, a lil cool, but the rum kept us warm!)
Do they have ones out of Frisco to Mexico for 3-4 days? Cuz I MAY be willing to go up and see the Fam that lives in Sacramento prior to Bon Voyage!
After our first "sampler" cruise, anyone want to try to coordinate us all going for a good long one? My whole Fam will be cruising during Spring Break AND Summer! One to Mex Riv and one to Carib, I believe.
REALLY want to go on the one to HW that you leave from San Diego, or fly to HW and then cruise around the islands (longer island time, less sea time).
How much fun would we all have?! Heck, give me a cracker and a glass of water, as long as Tiki Centralites are aboard, I'll have a blast!

Hey, wasn't that the name of the "Love Boat"?

Are the 3-4 day cruise ships big? I the ship I traveled in was either the Ecstacy or Fantasy. I think anything smaller would make me sea sick.
Hum, a New Year's cruise would be kind of cool.

Just checking in to see if this idea (and the thread) is dead, or if there are still ideas/plans for a cruise simmering somewhere, with someone?

We're in. No MAYBEs. IN! SOLID.
We are foregoing the annual camping trip in favor of complete service and laziness. Pick a date and let me know! (Spring Break may work...is the weather out in the Pacific OK then?)

Incidentally, I sure could use a breather real soon here. Thinking about a short run out of LA to Mexico. Would love to do the week long. But I'd settle for the Fri through Mon (3 day) or Mon through Fri (4 day). I know we're all up to our eye balls in Fam right now. (Which is why we NEED to get away!) So December's out. January, anyone?

WooHoo, If I may?.....

These are the two that sound best for Mrs.Mojo and I.
I personally wouldn't mind the time at sea for the most part, (been on the water all my life - still only blocks from the Yatch Club! ), but I'm not a very idle person, (laying on deck reading a book), I don't like throwing my money away gambling, the shows are sub-par, the mixed drinks are watery, poor and expensive and the worst part is that they put a liquor store on board and then take it away from you until after the cruise....excuse me, didn't they just make their money selling me a bottle of liquor?
If I want to go back to my room and mix my own Mai Tai shouldn't I be allowed?
So with that in mind a cruise ship is a floating hotel that can also get me around from port to port.
If you spend more time at sea than at port they've got ya by the short and curlies....it's all to get you spend more money.

The price is GREAT for the Mexico Cruise but my wife and I are DYING for Hawaii!
Am I understanding the HONOLULU ROUND TRIP correctly?
Fly from SFO to Honolulu then cruise 5 islands?
But what's this "Fees, tax $269." all about?
That better mean all port fees, gratuities, taxes and so on?
Still seems high?

Is a 4 Day Mexico from LA for New Years out of the question?
We have to drive down there the last week of December to close a couple of business deals and we have no plans for New Years. As long as we're down there hopping a cruise to ring in the New Year would be a BLAST!

Aloha Mr. TMJ! The fees stated are only port fees and taxes. When you cruise, you tip your room steward, the dining staff and Maitre de. The suggested amounts are on the ship's web site. You pay them on the last day. I usually set aside the cash way before the cruise. I never have tipped the suggested amount, sometimes more, sometimes less.
When you think about it though, $98.00 a DAY for Hawaii...!!!! With air! Food! Room! Entertainment! Etc!
Usually it's about that just to fly. Then there's the hotel room. The food, the transportation (Island hopping=$$$$. The souvenirs. You get it. It's a bargain. Unpack once and get blotto if you want! No driving, cleaning, cooking, shopping for groceries, etc.
As for the drinking/liqueur issue. We have ALWAYS brought our own bar mainstays packed deeply in our luggage. We use unbreakable bottles. we purchase the special drink-of-the -day on boarding, as it comes in a souvenir glass. Then we just reuse that one for the whole trip. Or the ones in the room or at the diner. We use their fruit (limes, lemons, tropicals, etc...) for fresh fruit juice. I usually can get tonic water for free from my waiter (Make yourself very friendly to him/her and tip ones right away and often and you'd be surprised at the sudden allegiance they'll show you! I got a bottle of rum and free sodas the entire cruise from a sweet Romanian girl that only spoke 2 words of English!)Our room steward never "saw" our bottles, lime peels, swizzles laying around. He wants his tip!
Entertainment? The MR enjoys the girls that dance in nothing but floss. Of course, there was the trip when the only entertainment was a poor substitute for Shecky. I think we were on the Senior Special. HOWEVER... Wherever 2 or more TCers are gathered, there shall be entertainment. Surprisingly, I had fun taking over the karaoke bar with my chums each night (must have been the constant soaking of rum.) Soccer Tiki should provide plenty of musical entertainment there! And if we request our rooms in the same general location/deck, we can have a room crawl. Usually, my family took over one of the hidden bar/lounges no one had ever found and we'd play Texas Hold 'Em all night. WE can use the different rooms (library, atrium, game room) for our own whatever! Perhaps a Show and Tell of our favorite mugs, carvings, necklaces, clothing... anything. We can pre plan for stuff like that. For Formal night, I always wore some vintage Hawaiian wear. It would be great if, for once, I wasn't the only one! If anyone likes dancing, you can spend the entire night on the dance floor. See ya there. Once, we found a member of the orchestra that played Uke! We'd seek him out after dinner and coerce him to play up on deck for hours! Or the Barbados band would find US and play steel drums and bass all night! After shows, members of the bands/orchestra sometimes get together and jam. We'd usually crashed the scene and it was great! We never got bored! We don't really spend money on any on-board stuff like casinos, stores, bar, etc... My uncle once got off the ship with all but $50.00 of his original $!! (Of course he was a cheap and miserly guy. I'd hate to be his steward! He's deceased now and probably trying to tell God He can get away with spending a lot less than He does now!)

As for the New Years idea...it is expensive due to the Holiday ($580 to $800!!). Plus it leaves on Fri, the 29th and gets back in port on Mon, the 1st. So you have to take into account the fact that you have to have your luggage packed and ready to be disembarked the night before arriving back in home port. New Years Eve. Then the hang over on the 1st. You have to get off the boat, find your car and drive home. Not fun even on a regular disembark! The 4 day leaves Jan 1st. So you kind of defeat the purpose, yet still pay the $$. Better off going to the shin dig at Bali Hai!

Either way, I think if we all go, it'll be AWESOME!! Anyone know how the weather is in HW during January? I HATE to fly!! But, if I take my pills, maybe! Otherwise, I like the cruise from San Diego and back.
