Going someplace warm in January

Iam a single parent who hasn't had a vacation without kids in a few years. I was wondering if there are other people who may be interested in doing an all incusive vacation in the Carribean, Mexico, San Juan, etc, for maybe 4 or 5 days in January or maybe even for New Years if its not too late.

    Is the cruise definite? Would anyone be interested in going to an all inclusive vacation instead of a cruise?

    was on new year's cruise on royal carribiean liberty of seas. had fun, but it was a very family-oriented ship especially being over the holidays. not a good ship for singles. looking forward to next month's cruise on norwegian epic which is a great ship for singles, even has singles studio section.

    Would anyone like to go with me so we can split the cost of the room. I get a discount for cruising with Carnival in the past.

    I went to Punta Cana in the end of September and the all inclusive resort was so much fun. Have you all made a decision where to yet?

    i am going on a cruise in february.Get away from the cold and the February blues especially Valentine's Day. I'm going on an Eastern Carribean cruise on Norwegian Epic, Feb 9-Feb 16. Norwegian Epic was voted best cruise ship by Travel Weekly in 2011. Cruise from Miami to ports of St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau, Bahamas. All meals and nightly top notch entertainment are included. Cost is just under $600 for double occupancy plus airfare. I was skeptical about my first cruise last year, but absolutely loved it and you will too. You just wear a seaband bracelet and you will be perfectly comfortable. http://www.ncl.com/cruise-ship/epic/overview

    i am very interested in winter travel to a warm place. Riviera Maya and punta cana seem to be the big places where they are always having deals. i did a cruise for first time last year and it was really fun. i'm doing a meetup out in conshohocken panera bread tomorrow nite 10/10 for anyone interested in travel. i'm doing it thru another meetup. not too much interest but definitely interested in your ideas.

    So...reading through all of this, I see a cruise is high on the list.

    I have to admit I have been back an forth about the January trip as to the venue. I hadn't been considering a cruise for the following reasons: 1) PhillyTrips tends to be about Travel + Activity. We go someplace to do something, I was leaning to a beach Venue w/ SCUBA or Surfing option(s).

    2) On a ship it is difficult to exert control over the group to keep us cohesive, I feel the group would get lost on a ship, ie you might as well travel on your own.

    3) For January, for a weekend trip, you are going to HAVE to fly to be in a warm place. A ship simply would not have time to go far enough south and back, and spend time anywhere warm. The time lost in airports, and boarding etc...oy.

    I was leaning towards Mexico, possibly Cancun. There are great deals, and the ability to go on day trips to Mayan ruins, etc.

    Let me know what you all think ASAP. I already have some basic plans in place.

    Shelly,

    I appreciate your comments! My main concern, is that boats are tighter spaces, and not like 'hanging out' at resort...but it is a very different experience with many rewards to it.

    I have gone on a chartered sailboat trip before to BVI. It was amazing! Having a chartered trip felt like such luxury, still was able to SCUBA, snorkle, etc but was customized. I would consider doing that again if it was booked.

    June 12, 2012

  • Josh

    This is Josh, the organizer...So, question:

    Which sounds more attractive: Beach resort trip with SCUBA add on or staying on a Chartered Sail boat and sailing around islands...?

    trying to decide!

    Hi Melissa and Veronica specifically sorry to be MIA, I've been a bit busy with usual life stuff:) and work, etc. I still am interested in keeping in touch and please feel free to contact me too. I will check with my travel agent friend on cruises for Jan and for later in March. I am thinking of going to Miami the week of March 20 anyway for a fashion show and if I could coordinate a trip while I am down there already that would be great too. Maybe a cruise from Miami then?

    Sounds good

    November 30, 2011

  • Cheri M.

    Hey Veronica/Melissa and others who may be interested:) Yes I love the idea of a weekend get away idea! A cruise would be awesome. Late Jan may be possible Melissa sounds like a great deal. I have a travel agent friend that could look into or book for us if that is something we and/or others are interested in. Maybe lets see about getting more info on and check flights. Compare notes shortly...

    Hi Cheri/Veronica and others,
    I'd love to take a 3 day cruise Fri-Sunday? I was looking online and saw Carnival has a 3day Bahamas cruise leaving out of Miami in late January (25th-I believe). I believe inside cabins were about $189-200. What are your thoughts?

    Hi ladies Melissa and Veronica specific I am new to the group. I have in the past attended one or two events with this group and had lots of fun. I would definitely be into a warm weather get away. Especially a cruise. I have been anxious to do one for years

  • Jocelynn

    Hi. I'm sorry for not getting back in touch and going someplace warm this winter. I think its a good idea to start planning for next winter.
    I am kid free on weekends and would love to get away for a day, overnight, or even the whole weekend. I'm not picky (except I'm not really a camping person). If anyone is interested or have ideas, please let me know.
