Wienergirls, I put this in my other thread, but in case you check this, not that one. Why don't you try to see if the cruise line will compensate with an onboard credit? I think I have read that people have occasionally gotten cruiselines to do that when the price drops after final payment. Good luck! In any event, you will really enjoy an outside cabin. This is the first time we are going inside. We have never had a balcony, but always an ocean view.
