The bags are packed, the upgrades have cleared (that’s 5 out of 8 or a 63 percent success rate since starting Trial Silver Preferred for those of you keeping score), and MrsMJonTravel and I are ready to fly to Fort Lauderdale tomorrow afternoon. We’ll be spending the evening at the W Fort Lauderdale before sailing away for 2 weeks worth of back to back (we’ll be doing the 7 night western Caribbean cruise followed by the 7 night eastern Caribbean) cruises aboard the largest cruise ship in the world, Allure of the Seas!

If hanging out with 6,000 of your new best friends (and 2,500 crew) doesn’t sound like your idea of a good time, be sure to read the blog and see how it goes for me. I’ll be sharing all the details right here, and maybe a quick review of the W Fort Lauderdale before I go too! I’ve had these cruises booked for about a year, and can’t wait to see the ship.
