Or if you want to really be sure, wait until 12:01 a.m. after your birthday.

I would wait until the 55th anniversary of your birthday.
We only have one birthday. I know, I'm being an ass. . .

And you can book a cruise if you are not 55 yet, but be able to prove you will be by time of sailing. If hubby isn't 55, you can get him the rate you pay as only one has to be over 55!!

I won't be able to use that discount for 29 more years. My hubby and I usually get a Military discount at least...
