Just one more note...
After all the online research we did, we made the cruise booking through Cruise Specialists, a great agency in Seattle, Washington. They were able to get us the same price (actually a few $ less) and we have the safety and convenience of an agent working for us. If there are any problems, it is better to have an agent in there pitching for you. I don't feel comfortable booking directly on some of these discount cruise sites. I like to have the security of calling my favorite agent (in this case, Shannon) and getting answers to my questions. I have a personal relationship with her, and I know I can call and speak to her directly. It's not like calling an 800 number, and taking the luck of the draw with whomever answers the phone. There is something to be said for peace of mind when spending a considerable amount of money, and traveling many thousands of miles.
