    We are taking our first repositioning cruise next year. We fly to Barcelona, make a couple of stops (Spain, Tenerife) then sail across the Atlantic to Miami (with a stop in the Bahamas first), a total of 14 nights. We will spend a couple of nights pre-cruise in Barcelona, we visited there in 2008 and really enjoyed it--good people, good food, lots to see.

    When we first started taking cruises my wife and I always wanted as few sea days as possible to maximize port visits. I guess now we just want to relax on the ship--either that or we are getting old LOL. My wife definitely loves cruises more than I do but I still think it will be a good trip.

    heading to Cancun again in March for another presidents club trip. My oldest has went the last two years. This year her and my 11 year old son are both going. We are staying at "moon palace" and it apparently has a water park at the hotel so I had to make sure my son came too.
