We cruise Miami (May 03 2008) to Rome (May 19) on Clebrity's Galaxy.
We are booked air plus cruise and have paid the deposit.
We would like to take some time in Florida and/or Italy before/after we cruise. We would like to book our own accommodation rather than accept what the cruise line has to offer (geography and price being the main reasons).
If I approach Celebrity about this, what should I say and what will they likely say?
Is it doable without recontracting the whole cruise deal (the price has doubled since we booked a month ago!).
