As the months rolled past - the fog began to clear.  During our P-Town drive we discussed options and began to realize that our decision NOT to go on Allure again left us with only three choices:

1 - Skip a winter cruise in 2012?  NO WAY!

2 - Go on the February RSVP cruise out of Ft Lauderdale.  This was on the Holland America ship Nieuw Amsterdam which sounded appealing (a new cruise line).  But RSVP is no Atlantis

3 - Go on the March Cruise on Summit.  This seemed like the best idea - since the ship was undergoing a transformation that Celebrity called "Solsticized".  BUT this cruise left out of Puerto Rico which meant no Vince and Andy and a flight to a foreign country during the stress of embarkation

The trouble was that Peter liked option 3 more than 2 and Chris liked option 2 more than 3.  Our preferences were having the effect of cancelling each other out - the more one of use leaned in one direction - the less enthused the other became.

Meanwhile, Rich had put into full swing his marketing for the Allure 2012:  "This year WILL be better in nearly every way!"  Though it seemed to be a necessary PR move to fight the negative perception - it also seemed to be something he could do.  Everything could be improved upon - though there were still boundaries.
