Hang inthere Helen. A few months ago we thought air Canada was gonna fold and my husband would lose his job. we cancelled our Princess cruise. Then boom! things picked up and we booked the Legend at the last minute and he just booked the QM2 for 2004! You too will cruise again - think positive!

We learned long ago don't listen to rumors. You could worry yourself sick.

Thank you all for the positive replies! We're thinking positive of course but planning just in case with having our money and ducks in a row.

Things will work out for the best Helen. I've never known anybody to be worse off after a takeover.

Regards,
Thomas
