W/l for a cabin class is different from w/l for a sold out cruise.
If your cabin cat is sold out you may get an upgrade.
If the ship is sold out you will get to stay home!!
Yup, you're right...but for us...part of the cruise experience is the ship!
I have some disabilities...(none major or serious) but we tend to spend more time in our cabin than most other passengers. So the right cabin and deck IS a major consideration when we book a cruise.
We tend to book early and request a specific deck and cabin. We have in the past, by booking early, got some great deals. But when we didn't ...it was still good, cause we got the cabin we wanted.
Of course, if we had our 'rathers'...my DH would like to book, cheap inside, most any deck above the water line...and we'd cruise like crazy!
Unfortunetly, that can't happen...BUT we at least have the cruise like crazy attitude!!!!
