What happened on the Mother's Day cruise? My husband just booked this cruise today for us and for my parents. Yes, it is a lot of money. I am hoping they do include breakfast and I also hope you can get on the ship earlier than 5pm. My husband's birthday is the 24th of October. My parents have never been on a cruise ship before (the June 26th cruise was our first time) and I know my dad will love it. They would never do anything like this without our help so it's also kind of a gift for them. Let me know if you decide to go for it.
