Hey Stephen, so pleased to have you and Becky aboard again - we seem to have the exact same taste in cruises - this will be cruise number 3 won't it?

We went to Tulum and Cachobin (not sure on spelling). Tulum was absolutely incredible! We love history and the beaches at most other stops bore us silly so are always looking for something historic or cultural to experience.

What is your suggestion for a "ruins" tour of the ones you have done?

Well, the day is coming to a close....I hope tomorrow goes better than today....I went online to check in for my flight...and I was exactly 24 hours out...I got A57 boarding position !!!!! What? That's at the end of the A boarding...I'm thinking of paying the $10.00 for the flight home to get a better boarding position..since I won't have access to the internet, it might not be a bad idea. Then, I find out that my dinner plans for tomorrow night fell through (for good reason, and I'm ok with it....think I'll rent a movie and order dinner in)..then, I check on the reservation my sister made at the resort for me, and find out she has me checking out on Sunday.....hmmmm...my flight leaves MONDAY!!!! I called the resort, and they were nice enough to change it for me...Whew !!!! Oh, didn't mention that I got my nails done last night...they looked so nice...until I broke one just before going to bed..had to get it fixed at lunch time...now my nail has a ridge on it......jeeezzzzzz...still have to go home, do laundry and finish packing. I just keep thinking...tomorrow is a brand new day...

Anyway, I'll catch you all next week...

Howdy everyone! I have been on the first two Podcast cruises and I am currently booked for 3.0. I am debating whether or not I should "jump ship" and transfer to 4.0 Does anyone know what the weather is USUALLY like in this area in December. I am scared because of the weather we had on 3.0 (cold and WINDY!). I am afraid of the risk I take in booking a trip at this time. Was that completely unusual, or is there a decent chance the weather could be like that again in the Carribbean?

Also, for those of you who have transfered to 4.0 from 3.0, have you found the pricing to be cheaper, the same, or more?

Thanks so much everyone!!

I was on 2.0 as well. I originally booked 3.0 and was going to keep it, but thought about how hot it is in June and about the cost of flying home the week of July4 and decided to change. I am booked as a single in a 9A and the cost was like $40 more. Plus the parks are so much nicer in December all decorated for Christmas.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, the first 2 Podcast cruises were Bahamian cruises, not Caribbean. The Western Caribbean is much farther South, and generally much warmer than the Bahamas. Except for Castaway Cay, I'd expect much better weather than you saw this year. Obviously, anything is possible, but don't base your worries on what you've seen in the Bahamas.

Thanks for your responses guys. True about being warmer in the Caribbean... I still don't wanna freeze my buns off in Castaway though! I am gonna have to do a little more research and think about it. Hmmmmm

The weather will be AWESOME once you get into the Caribbean. It MIGHT be AWESOME from Port Canaveral to the Caribbean or in MIGHT NOT be AWESOME. So at the worst, you will have 2 days that are not in the 80's. I love the western cruise because the Caribbean Sea is much calmer than the Atlantic Ocean.

I don't remember which tours we did exactly but the one for Tulum was a whole day - and it was excellent.

The other tour I seem to think was a half day and didn't have a beach stop.

Tulum's location on the coast was spectacular, the only issue we had was it was so unbelievably hot - it would have been in September so December would be much more comfortable for sightseeing.

Although June would be better for us from the point of view of escaping our winter, the thought of tacking on theme park days in June/July sounds like hell. I'm thinking we will enjoy the parks in November/December much more and for sightseeing in ports, it'll be perfect. We don't do beaches or snorkling except for Castaway anyhow.

It was about $200 more but its two extra days so seemed like a good deal.
