Default Switching cruises....

I don't think I have many options but I thought I would ask. I already asked my travel agent and he had no solutions that would not cost me $$$.

Here's the scoop. We booked an 11 day Southern Caribbean cruise on Quantum the day they went on sale. We paid $1,579. The same balcony cabin is now going for $2,564. Almost $1,000 more! We have been saying to ourselves how lucky we are to have booked so early because we could not afford the current rates. We are stretching as it is.

Well our luck has changed.... Her favorite niece is getting married and has asked her to be in the wedding and of course it's dead smack in the middle of our cruise!!! She has asked me to try and switch cruises.

We looked up 2 different cruises on Quantum. Both cruises are 12 day Southern Caribbean cruises. Jan 11 = $2,184 & March 1 $2,144. Roughly $600 dollars more than we paid for our current booking but about $400 less than our current cabin is going for. We were hoping that RCCI might let us change bookings but our travel agent said the only thing he can do is cancel our current booking and re-book. Even with our future cruise certificate it's still undo-able at over $1,000.

Anybody have any ideas??? We really have our hearts set on sailing on Quantum next winter. I'm between a rock and a very hard spot! I may have no choice but to cancel.
