Mandy, I understand the bit about all the leg work, same thing happened when my bro got married in Vegas and when my dad had his 90th BD party in REno. I did the work, I shopped for the best rates and I ended up paying the most plus, in my case, a couple of the idiots didn't show and the rooms for on my CC. Guess who got screwed? of course a hotel room is a bit different than a cruise. We still had a great time in both cases and I know you will too cause you have that attitude.
