All my twins want for their 16th birthday is a cruise with the family to the Caribbean. We've never been anywhere tropical. I really need some advice as we've never cruised before. We need something that is a good value for our money as it will probably be the only time we do this. Can you help? I've done some searching. It seems as if we have to cruise out of Florida. LA is closer to us but all of the cruises seem to be to Mexico and my husband doesn't want to go there. So, I was thinking we would fly to Florida, spend a couple of days and then go on the cruise.
