We have booked a balcony through Vacations to go for $2200 incl. taxes. We missed the first go but it reopened for 1 day.
With respect to contruction, we were on Princess earlier this year and our carpet was replaced during the cruise.
I am wondering if the weather will be warm as it is early for a crossing.
I am looking forward to doing not much for 10 days. As for the crew, their salary is peanuts - they live off their tips. This is a long voyage - they will want good tips and the service should be excellent.
I am more concerned about line ups if they filled the boat.
