    So my wife and I have been batting around the idea of taking a cruise for a while- and then the other day I won a gift certificate that is going t cover a bit more than 1/2 the trip we wanted to do.

    I think we are going to take a 5 day Carnival cruise that stops in Progresso and Cozumel, Mexico. I'd like to get further south than that- but time does not permit.

    Any suggestions or things to watch out for??

    Ya know- I didn't even think about that. The last time I was in Mex was only a year and change ago....and I didn't really think about it then.

    I think we are sticking to the ship to shore excursions- so I would hope those are pretty safe. ::might pack a trick or two anyways::

    i have been on two cruises..and i didnt particularly like them. but i still had a blast.

    a crushable platypus water bag is your best friend. fill it up with booze. take it with you. buy copious amounts of cigars and smoke alot. spend the next morning hunting down that damn cat, that took a dump in your mouth during the night. find out ASAP, if the ship has a nude section..and avoid it at all cost. people comfy in their skin are typically delusional about how they look in their own skin. (reference booze bag). bring gambling money.
