We went on the Inspiration 6/6/5 5 nights. we used our Visa/Debit, they placed a 150.00 hold per person on the account. They actually didn't deduct the charges until about 5 days after we returned. We also had 1 formal night. The first "Day at Sea" was our formal night.
Thanks all..... We've cruised once before on a 7 day - and our next one is a 7 day. But a friend of mine is getting married in Sept - and JUST decided she wants to cruise on her honeymoon (first cruise). They are going to do a 5-day - and even though I told her about these great sites - she's in the middle of getting the wedding itself ready to go -so she really doesn't have time to research a lot of this for herself. I was pretty sure of the 1-formal night -but I was not so sure of the Sign & Sail. thanks to you all for your answers....
Now if it were only MY time to go.... but still 290 days to wait !!
