CF, I'm a little confused with your reply, or it could be that I don't understand Choice Air. You state that I'm better off booking through the air line than on my own. Is Choice Air anything like Travelocity or Expedia, in that you book on that site, but are confirmed via the Air Line, or are you doing the booking on your own without Choice Air's help other than the great prices? I'm looking at almost a $350 @ person savings using Choice over the air line itself. I'm booking on April 1st, so I have a bit of time to think. Not normally the timid type, but between leaving my country (which up to this point, for a cruise, I haven't done) and then missing the ship or lost luggage, I'm afraid this cop has his concerns; too many years dressed in Blue, I sometimes think....................
