Well, I couldn't stand it anymore, so I called RCCL to see when they are going to start booking it. The gal said she heard August. She said she also heard it was going to do eastern and western caribb. With my husband being in college, we won't be able to sail on her till Jan or the summer of 2010. Maybe, by then the price will have dropped some, with the Allure coming out that year. I am dreading to see the price tag.
