Just too many variables that could go wrong.
yea that is good advice. But I think when the Imagination and Inspiration got it done wasn't it perfect for the first passagngers. Also it could of been that the things the needed were not in yet, so that is why they were late.
I know I was just saying that. I wouldn't book close to a drydock or after.

I'm not saying they can not go well, the majority probably do, but even if if only a third don't go well, 33% is too high of a chance for me to want to book it.
