well I got our assigned cabin, I went for a guarentee on cat 11 and got a cat 12. sweet!!!!!!!!!!we are all jumping up and down we saved over 600.00 dollars, by booking early with a guarentee, we are on the fantasy, we are losing costa Maya, it is the pits. but the Cat 12 will sort of make up for it, 25 days and counting!!!!!!!!!!!
First of all Happy new year lisa, and to your family, I was so elated to go on and get our documents on line at Carnival, and found we already had our cabin assignment on a guarentee csbin, it is not usually given till you sign in at the ship. I was just so thrilled to see the cabin # we are very lucky I guess and I booked far enough in advance so maybe that was a factor, or maybe because I have done almost 10 cruises with carnival, who knows all I know is it is going to be a great trip, for the 4 of us ladies it will be my last one, for this year as I am retiring next month, and will be on a tight budget, so will not be able to cruise as often but will try to manage one 1 every 18 months or so, documents on line are pretty neat but I do miss the BLUE Packet and leafing through the papers, but I printed it all out and it is about the same but the Blue Packet makes it so awesome and you have it in your hands to look over, guess that sounds silly huh!!! well we will be counting down the days I have us booked at the Riverside Hilton in New Orleans for 3 nights before we sail got a really good price though Harrahs (Comp) so every one if you visit casinos and have your casino cards, try your casinos for pre- cruise hotel stays, we saved over 600.00 staying there on a comp hotel rate. NICE!! ok kids got to run have 3 more days till my 3 week vacation starts lots to do around here begore I leave and retire, so Happy Cru z,n everyone
Happy New Year peachcrek, I'm doing my doc dance for you. It's not silly at all missing the blue packet. I much prefer the documents in the mail, it's just so much fun, like you say, to thumb through them. For me it's countless times before the cruise. Congratulations on your retirement as well! I'll never be able to retire completely, but when I can retire from this job, I'm going to jump on it. Lord willing, he'll let me live long enough to enjoy a few years of retirement. Have a wonderful cruise and may this year be full of the best!
Glad to see you're still cruisin! Gord and I are on RCI's Radiance of the Seas for an eight day Jan 19 - 27. We do Eastern Caribbean again.
Glad to hear you going to finally retire...Gord retired a year ago and he loves it!
Let me know how your Fantasy cruise goes...we want to do the same one...stay at Harrah's for a bit of gamblin' fun and then cruise! What could be better! LOL
