Coolrush, intereresting< I am under the impression, like most of us, that starting May the $10 will be considered a service charge and automatic. We will wait this one out. Don, I didn't mean you could no longer get a discount, I simply meant the give away prices we have seen in the past advertised on these threads will no long exist, also the price of cruising is indeed exculating this year with almost no new ships being put into the water til 2006. This does not mean there will be no more great last minute pricing. Of course as far as discounts off the brochure prices I have yet to find one person who has ever paid brochure prices.
