My Vacation Plans

The following are my planned future vacations that I have reserved through 2021. I plan to go on a cruise at least once a year, from Los Angeles to Los Angeles. I do not want to travel by air anymore for many reasons. Therefore, my choices are limited. However, the principal thing is to go out to sea once a year.

Now that I found out I can rent a scooter due to my pacemaker, I will always rent one when cruising. It is the best thing to navigate the ship.  In addition, I will always get a cabin with a balcony

For May 2020, a 7-day cruise to the Mexican Riviera, from Los Angeles to Los Angeles on the "Carnival Panorama" The Panorama is the newest Carnival ship being made as we speak. It will enter service on November, 2019.  I got a very good price and a cabin with a balcony.

For August 2020, a 14-day cruise to Alaska, from Los Angeles to Los Angeles, on the "Golden Princess:"

For March 2021, a 7-day cruise of the California Coast Line on the "Royal Princess:"

My future plans for 2024 and beyond are a cruise from Los Angeles to Los Angeles once a year. The choices that I have are:
  1. "Princess Cruises" a 4-day cruise to Catalina Island and Ensenada.
  2. "Princess Cruises" a 5-day cruise to Cabo San Lucas.
  3. "Princess Cruises" 7-day Mexican Riviera - a repeat of the Carnival Panorama Mexican Riviera, but from a different cruise line although it is owned by Carnival.
  4. A 19-day cruise through the Panama Canal from Los Angeles to Los Angeles.  This is a great cruise since it crosses the canal twice - going and coming back.  However, it is a bit too long.
  5. After that and if there are no new cruises, I have to start the process again. I figure that at my age, I will not be able to start the process again.
