I called and asked for a price on a cruise on the Dream in Jan 2010. With a promotion they have going now (she said it was cheaper then the past guest discount),and with the 50% discount, I could do an inside cabin catogory 4D for $1,042.30 (that's for 2 people) or a cat 6B, which it a deluxe oceanview 280 sq with an additional bath for $1,423.00. And, a "cove" for a little bit more then that (I forgot to write that amt down) I thought those prices sounded pretty decent. The only problem with it is that with the promotion, your deposit is not refundable (although all but $50. of it can be applied to a future cruise)
I just wanted to see if that sounded like a good deal.
It sounds ok to me but keep in mind that if you cancel like you said you have to eat your deposit. Since your trip is almost a year away you may want to book the regular guarantee cabin. It costs a bit more but if you have to back out of the trip your deposit isnt lost. Its just something to think about...
