Looking ahead to 2007

As some of you may already know, latinvixen02 and I are going to try to run the furry cruise alternating between the west coast and the east coast each year with her running the east coast and me running the west. So for 2007, the furry cruise will have a West Coast destination. Here's a list of the basic itineraries of the cruises over on this side and what I think are the pros and cons of each.

Mexican Rivera:

This is a 7 night cruise and usually hits Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas.

PROS:
-About the same price as this years cruise (cabins start in $500 range)
-Weather and activities are similar to a Caribbean cruise.

CONS :
-Only 3 days of the cruise are in ports.
-Depending on when we go, this itinerary can get a rowdier group of fellow passengers



Southern California and Baja Mexico:


This is a 4 night cruise that usually hits San Diego CA, Catalina Island, and Ensenada, Mexico.

PROS:
-The price range of this cruise is comparable with the 2005 cruise (cabins can be got for less than $300 a person)
-Every day we are in port.
-Weather is usually pretty nice.

CONS:
- While the ship that does this cruise is nice, it's an older one and cabins are small.
- While the ports are pretty cool, they are not as exotic as some in the Caribbean.


Alaska:

This is a 7 night cruise and usually hits Juneau, Ketchikan, and Skagway
(some cruise through the Hubbard glacier).

PROS:
-I think this cruise is one of the best suited for us. There is TONS of wildlife to see and is very scenic,
even for days we are not in port (since the ship stays VERY close to land).

CONS:
-This is going to be an expensive cruise. Interior cabins start around $700 a person and balconies are at least $1600.
-The dates of the cruise would have to change since Alaska cruising season is May to September.



I will not try to change the way the the cruise is ran. I still plan to use Royal Caribbean and plan to keep the rules thesame as LV's. I will designate someone as a "fursuit liaison" since that's not my area of expertise (travel planning is what I'm good at).

I will put a survey up soon that I would like people to do since it will really help me make this cruise enjoyable for all. For now, any comments on what I've put up so far would be appreciated.

Mexican Riviera cruise
CONS:
-Only 3 days of the cruise are in ports.


If you have a mate, then that's not a con. ;)

Needless to say, if I were to do Furry Cruise (many factors depending, such as final date and whether or not I can scare up a roomie), I would prefer this one.

Whiel alaska soudns the msot fun good fursuit weather, cool scenery, somthign completly opisette fo the florida cruses, and whiel in the logn run it's probably cheaper as since you're ON SHIP you wotn be tempted to buy excursions as much, and less shopping opertunities, when combined with airfare I can't commit to $1000 trip at this time, but i'd love an alaskan cruise

Fursuit birthday

one bgi con abotu the dates is thats 3 less months at best to save and plan, hwo abotu MAY of 08? do it later enstead of earlier, thats more likely for me,

may is also better for cons, 3 months after fwa 2 months before ac.

course thsi runs up agaisnt the 08 florida cruise

unless ya move that to like march/april 09 and do the cheaper cruize again, I think we should alternate lavish expensive ones with cheaper affordable ones too to balance who can attend.

My vote is Mexican Riviera for 07, and Alaska for 09.

I'm voting for the Southern CA and Mexico one. Catalina island is awesome, and I'd love to see some of Mexico.

Depending on the dates, I know I could make this one as I could drive there rather than trying to justify a plane ticket cost on top of cruise prices.

Hello all,

I found out about the furry cruises through another user on DeviantART. I've always wanted to go on a cruise, and now that I know that there are Furry Cruises, well, that's even better. :D I'm hoping that me and my mate can make it to one of the cruises this year. But that will depend on money, since I am a college student..and let's face it, education isn't exactly cheap these days. O.o But, we shall see how things go. :3
