Angie, be sure to try to use the government discount if your DH was ever in the service. Great savings there. But you need to check early there are only a limited cabins aloted for this discount. Talk to a TA, there are some really good discounts to be had if you qualify for one of them.
DH and I are going on the Inspiration for 5 days. We are getting a cabin with a window. Total for two $ 685.50. (Gov. discount)
I hope this helps.
Have a wonderful cruise.
