Default I can't believe it! I'm doing the "Booking Dance"!!

Tonight I came home to find my hubby on the phone with a Carnival agent, discussing the possibility of a last-minute cruise vacation in August. I had 5 mins. to decide, yes or no - what was there to decide?!! So, we are booked on the Carnival Legend, Aug. 17-24, leaving from New York. I can't believe it! Even better, we got an immediate upgrade to a suite with a balcony!! We have to cancel our Jan. cruise on the Golden Princess because Air Canada has messed up his vacation time, but we both managed to get the same week off in Aug. and were desperate to do something with my son - he is thrilled to be coming along! After all the drama in our family in the 1st 6 months of this year, I think we deserve this vacation!

p.s. I guess I will have to change my countdown clock eh?

Wow, congratulations, Donna! That sounds wonderful! Not only a great cruise with a balcony suite, but SOON, too! You definitely deserve this after the year you've had.



What ports will you be visiting?

Cheers,

Forgot to post itinerary: from N.Y., to San Juan, St. Thomas/St.John, Tortola/Virgin Gorda, and 4 "fun days" at sea. And I'm excited just to see the Statue of Liberty in N.Y!!

Terrific news for you Donna. Bad news for me because I won't be with you, and have a NEED to sail out of NY.
Good news for me is I'll be in the Baltic on the Radisson Voyager. We'll have to wave to each other and have a toast!

Great news Donna!
A cruise coming up in a few months, what could be better than that, except the lottery of course! We are all celebrating with you.

What exciting news to read about first thing this morning. You sure deserve a cruise break and having one coming up so soon is wonderful.

Oh Happy Day!

Good for you! You and your family deserve this vacation!

I think some things are just meant to be, and with the upgrade, this sounds like one of them.

Have fun!

The best treatment, to get over those bumps in life, is to sooth them with waves. A most deserving cruise for sure. Congratulations…

Way to go Donna, I think you and your family deserve this after not knowing what was going to happen with your husband's job. Congratulations and yes, fix that damn clock. {{grin}}
