    option/opportunity/choice

    we had the opportunity today of booking a repositioning cruise for Spring 2019.
    leaving Miami, sail to Mediterranean with a few stops along the way.
    it was a good price, even the return flights to the USA we somewhat ok in price.

    but we chose to stick with our original Aruba plans instead.

    wow, what is wrong with us ? ! ?

    so opportunity knocked and we did not answer.

    it was "almost free" the total including air back to USA was under $3K

    paul just said to me again, "what the heck is wrong with us?"
    i said....we know what we want and what we like! we do not pretend to be world travelers. our wants and needs for vacations are pretty basic: aruba, beaches, sun, people REPEAT.

    A repositioning Cruise definitely would not have enough Beach time for us. You followed your heart and like most of us here that will lead you to Aruba every time.
    Always planning our next trip

    no cruise gives enough beach time.
    and as far as pool time.......one has to get to the pool on the ship (even the adut pool) predawn.
    then it turns into a mass crowd battling for position.
