Well, I mailed off my free cruise info and I got the confirmation back today. I upgraded (total cost $400) to a 8A cabin and I asked to be near the central atrium. I can't get any closer to the atrium than walking out the door and I am at the elevators! Awesome--they are so good! I'll be below the far end of the general goods shop on the Port side. The Valor's decor is not pleasing to my eyes, but I can get past that because the ports are amazing!!!!!! Perhaps this time I will be able to spend more than 30 minutes at the Turtle Farm in Grand Cayman (I'll book a tour if it is available!).
In the end it will cost me a wee bit because I have to pay for my flight, but if I can find a flight for under $700 I'll be tickled!!!! I will be watching the websites and newspapers for seat sales this summer and early fall !!!!! Heck, I planned on going anyhow in January, but it would have costed me over $2500, this way it will be under half the cost, so not totally free, but a steep discount!!!
