That's great. Windfalls like that are as gusts of wind on a hot day. Congradulations. You'll enjoy the balcony. It's very fortunate to have a TA that looks out for their clients. The only way I get a "deal" is if I read about it on here, or another board, and then call my TA and inquire. I'm going to change after this cruise and get a more interested Carnival Advisor.
