Hmmmm...too far out? Lets see....
I am booked on the Elation 2/29/04
the Rhapsody 10/24/04
The Legend 2/23/05
and a few short land trips in between to look forward to. Don't think you are booked too far at all...and if prices change, you may even get a credit. Besides....you have enough time to scope out better deals on other trips should you change your mind. Just my thoughts.
Joyce: You aren't booked too far in advance.....just book another one before 2005 and that one won't see so far away!

It's really just a matter of preference. Personally, I don't like to book that far in advance because with so many ships hitting the water, the prices generally drop and it just saves me the time of dealing with those folks again. Also, I general get a better handle on airline specials and hotel specials a few months in advance. But, there is no right way or wrong way. It's just whatever suits you.
