We just booked our cabin on the Valor (using the Early Saver rates) for April 29th, 2012. A little over thirteen months out, but at least we were able to get exactly what we wanted, and at a good price. We're from Ohio, and we'll be posting on the "Meet on Board" section in the coming months to see who else from Ohio will be on this cruise. Can't wait! There'd better be plenty of chocolate melting cake or there will be a mutiny!!
Oh trust me. We'll be on the lookout for price drops. The more money we can save, the more I'll have for Pina Coladas or my wife will have for the casino. And if we end up with an onboard credit, we can always use it at the gift shops. Either way, it's all good!
