We are not at all brand loyal in cruising. Internet search engines and fate decide where and when we cruise. We are very old fashioned though- ballroom dancing, libraries and walk around promenade decks are a huge draw. Low prices are important for me – and I am fine with an ocean view cabin (for the record DW prefers a balcony). The idea is if the price is low enough we can go more often. Days at sea are relaxing. After a few lovely trips on the Jade we were last on Norwegian on the Breakaway out of New York. I was remembering crowds, smoke and the main dining room food budget being a few dollars a day too low.

Early December is for some reason a low season in Florida for cruising. I was randomly called to be at a conference Tuesday/Wed in Orlando. A search revealed- the Sun was going out of Port Canaveral Thursday– 5 nights - $179 for Oceanview. That was also the number of vacation days I had left and fit my budget.

We were on the Sun many years ago. I had some trouble finding online a recent Freestyle Daily- my DW is OK on cruising but is happier if she can dance and collect her steps aboard. Hint: one lap is 650 or so steps for her. I try and figure out if there is any decent dancing before I book. The Mexican ports were not great- Key West and Nassau are our nearby favorites – but an average port day beats a day at work.

Nice cabin. Quiet and roomy. Lots of storage.
