you will love cruising, it is so addictive! We are going on our first RSSC cruise on the Mariner to the Panama Canal at the end of March - very excited as a special one to mark our 20th wedding anniversary. We were upgraded free on our cabin [g to e] and have $250 each onboard credit as well as the 2 for 1 deal. We booked a couple of weeks ago and had to have the air package [which was reasonable from the UK] to get that deal. Glad to have found this site, it could be helpful.
