Any cruise fanantics out there? Leaving out on a 9 day back to back cruise this Thursday and I'm freaking excited as hell! I'm not new to cruising as this will be my 12th in 5 years. My wife got me into cruising shortly after we got married, and I've been hooked ever since.

We go every 5-6 months and it's something that we both have a passion for. We have 5 ports of call on this trip, and it goes like this.

First part of the trip is a 4 day cruise. Fly out of BNA Thursday morning straight to Ft. Lauderdale, then take the shuttle bus to the port of Miami. Ship sets sail at 4pm and will arrive at our first stop in Key West Friday morning.

First stop. Key West
Second stop. Cozumel
then back to Miami.

We then stay on the ship, and go back out for another 5 day cruise.

First stop. Grand Turk
Second stop. Half Moon Cay
Third stop. Nassau
Then the sad trip back to Miami.

Most of these places we have been to plenty of times, but it never get's old. Anyway's I'm super excited and was just wondering if there were any other cruise junkies out there like me.

I thought that but the FBI rankings aren't about murder, they are about violent crime as a whole.

Should the football and weather threads merge into this one?

People in the South talk about football way too damn much, if we merged these threads everyone would just talk about football. lol

If things go well with this thread then maybe we can get a skybar subforum and all the off-topic stuff like weather and football can move in. This is a discussion thread and it would be hard to talk around a big weather event or football game.

Spencer Bachus (R-Vestavia Hills) is not running for re-election in 2014. He has served 11 terms yrs in the House of Representatives. He was likely to face a primary challenge in next years election.

I think this hasnt been promoted enough in the Birmingham area and the Southeast. To have this urban oasis just 10-15 mins from downtown is pretty cool.
