I can beat that!! I have December 11, 2005 on Carnival Destiny for the Southern Caribbean booked. My husband and I along with a group of other couples just came off Explorer of the Seas in April. The other couples were first time cruisers and the minute we got back they insisted that I plan next yr's cruise. I thought they were joking....a week later we were all booked, along with other coworkers, for the December 2005 cruise. I book my vacations a year in advance, but this was wayyyyyyyyyyy in advance.
