So I did it! I pulled the trigger on Hawaii.
Thank you cyber monday Carnival sale. I got me a balcony 8C on a 15 day Hawaiian cruise on the Miracle this is similiar to the one my parents are doing right now. Past guest rate was $1519 per person. Which is the cheapest I have seen this cruise. It leaves Dec 7, 2013 they is probably why most people aren't booking it because it arrives back in Long Beach CA on 12/22/13. We will drive to port so no big deal for us. Travelocity is still showing this rate but only on 8A not 8C I like being higher on the ship. Plus the travelocity is an early saver fare not past guest so the cancellation policy is better on my fare. Thank you cruise points for saving me $800 on this cruise.
BTW when I got the cruise detail I found out I was male. That was quite a shock to my hubby. 18 years of marriage and he never knew I was male.
