with the economy, the way it is, Rob and I are looking for deals on cruises. We are going on a repositioning cruise to europe, in a little over two weeks, because of the price. We usually book an inside cabin on a lower deck. As the saying goes, you get the same meals and the same entertainment. I would rather have the money on save on a cheap cabin to spend going out for meals in the ports, going on excursions, or just to shop in the stores in the ports!
