I've gone to many blogs to find answers on lots of topics however most of the time you read through so many posts and never get an answer or closure. Besides the potential of getting a 7 day, 8 night cruise, the driver for me taking the risks is so that I can share the experience with others who wonder if this is for real or not. My intention is to keep this going up to the time I disembark from this cruise.
My wife and I took our first cruise 3 weeks ago and we are now hooked. It was a 3 day, 4 night cruise on Holland America from San Diego to Vancouver BC with a stop at Victoria. One week before the cruise, we were given an offer to upgrade from the Deluxe Veranda to the PH Suite for $200 per person. We took the upgrade. We thought we hit the lottery. I guess well compare all future cruises to this one.
