    Tamra, just tried to call Princess since my TA "say's" she cannot do anything but they were closed. Will call back after 0800. Let you know once I speak with them. I just do not understand why you always hear BOOK EARLY to get the best rates!!! Horses_ _ _!!!! You get the best rates when you get under 60 days from departure. I'm learning.

    Sorry to hear that michelle- from what you read on the boards, some people get adjustments or onboard credits, or coupon booklets to use for the ship and others just get nothing- does not make sense- there should be some consistency on this and other topics but what can you do?
    Also you hear not to wait to book as prices just go up and up til sailing date- i think that totally depends on how popular a sailing is- if one is selling well and booking up- the price will not go down-- if one is slower to book and the cruise date is fastly approaching- poof the prices drop until the desired amount of rooms are sold- some sailings are not as popular as others - there are already some sold out sailings for some of the voyager class ships for this fall going to caribbean- as i looked at them all to see for future informations sake- isn't it funny doing research on cruise pricing ? brad thinks i am nuts to look up all this stuff but you never know when it could come in handy and save you hundreds of dollars!!!
    Sorry again michelle- won't even upgrade your cabin? something? that ta should have coupon books she could give you ? good luck!!!!! hope something gives for you!!!

    Thanks Tamra for your support. I just will never book in advance ever again. After getting that last cruise for $449 and then seeing this Alaska cruise for $514.......I just ain't gonna' ever book in advance. I will wait til I am 60-90 days out from departure. If a ship is full then I will just look for another one. I saw Carnival's Glory for $399 yesterday on CVC for October out of Pt. Canaveral!!!!! Don't think I will ever use a TA again either. Online bookings for me from here on out. How is your condo doing with all these storms? Well, gotta' run.........check back in with ya'll this afternoon. Jodi......when are ya'll going to Blairsville GA? Need to know so that we can make plans to hook up.

    Michelle- so far so good with the storms coming in- fingers will stay crossed- condo not even dry walled yet so even if they blew in, it could not do too much?

    there are rooms left on the mariner , Michelle- come on and go with us-
    there have to be some people going on your alaskan sailing- maybe they don't know of the cruise message boards? hope you can meet up with some fun people- you could always go with us- check the prices- think the reali tini group has the lowest price of all 589- includes port and tax for inside cabin- or mosaics has 687 including port and tax for a promenade room- or you can check out last minute deals to see if there are any- someone said there are lots of rooms left- i am not sure but thought when i did a count on 4 sites it looked like only about 45 or so cabins- who knows- may go look at rccl to see what they have just for info-
    keep on lookin, michelle- they have to be around here somewhere.......................................?

    Good afternoon Tamra!! It is sad to see our thread here fade away to the bottom of the page :( Sure hope all the other Island Hoppers are doing fine. Jodi, I am still interested in getting together in Blairsville GA if you have not gone yet. We would love to see you guys! Well, Stan and I only have like 36 more days til' we go to Alaska. I am ready for a cruise alrighty!!! For those interested......I landed a super job close to home (only 9 miles!!! NO FREEWAY) and start on 8-1. I fly to Dallas for 2 weeks of training on 7-31 and will be gone til 8-12, then back home for 2 weeks then off to Alaksa on 8-26 til 9-5!!! I am going to be a very busy girl. So Tamra, if you don't see any posts from me you will know why. Sure hope the hotel they put me up in has computer and internet capabilities!!! Gotta' run............miss everyone!!!!

    Hello Island Hoppers.

    Ok - I need to get better about posting - I don't want our thread to disappear. Michelle - Congrats on the new job!! Only 36 more days until your cruise - we have just under 3 months. I can't wait - I wish everyone could join us.

    Has anyone heard from Melissa and Eric? Its been a really long time since she has posted. Hopefully we hear from all the Island Hoppers soon.

    Have a great weekend.

Alaska is breaking the bank!!! LOL!!! I heard from Melissa a while ago via email and they are doing fine. Eric landed a great job and they seem to be doing well. Melissa if you are out there.....get to postin'!!!!!! RIch, Alley, Jodi, Alfio...let's hear from you guys too.

    Michelle- as far as fun things to do- have eaten mexican food there, done go carts, shopped the galleria and some outlet mall, visited with friends and thats about it but there are plenty of other things to do there- lol- are you staying in Dallas? or near airport or near ft worth or? its a BIG spread out place - sort of like atlanta but maybe bigger? Hope someone can chip in some better info here for you................................
    Are you training with a group or wil you be doing this solo? Oh yeah, it is really reallly HOT there too- i mean HOT- even hotter than Mississippi and Georgia- % ) ( trying to make a face there but not working out)

    IBCAR18 Guest

    Yes, it is VERY hot here too. Today it is suppose to be like 99 in some areas, with the heat index
    107-110!!!!!! Can hardly breathe outside. Had all kinds of plans today but more than likely will stay indoors most of the afternoon. I am staying near the airport (Irving TX) first night and then next two weeks I am staying in Duncanville TX which is apparently near their office. They have already made all my arrangements for my flights, car and hotels. I am sure I will be training with at least another person......no solo for me. Tried that on my last job and it does not work for me! Anyway, am going to do a search on the net today for some fun things to do while I am there. Hopefully Stan can come out for a weekend and we can do some things together. Really looking forward to moving on finally with my career which has stalled these past few months. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.......stay cool!!!!!!! Chat with ya'll later......................Michelle.

    I just wanted to check in on the Island Hoppers. Michelle, when do you and Stan leave for your cruise? You have to be getting really excited!! We booked our airfare for Orlando today - all I need to do now is make the final payment on Friday. I love summer but I can't wait for October!!!

    I will check in soon - have a great week.

    Hi Cheryl. Hope all is well with you and the hubby!! Stan and I leave for our Alaskan cruise on Friday
    8-26. We are flying to Seattle that day and then taking a shuttle to Vancouver BC for the night there. Our ship departs on Saturday around 5pm I think. For the past couple of weeks I have been getting excited but now with this new job, the trip to Dallas this Sunday and there for 2 weeks I really have no time to plan my clothing and such!!! Too much going on now. It is a shame that everything always seems to happen at once!!! Anyway, making the best of it all. Ya'll will have a blast on the Mariner!!! Be sure to have some cocktails for Stan and I. Well, you have a great day and wonderful weekend. I can't wait til the weather cools off here..............Michelle.
