Default All paid

Well today we paid for our cruise in full. Wow what great feeling to know it is all paid including the prepaid gratuties. Thirteen of us are going on the Valor Western on October 2, 2005. Now all we have to do is pack our bags and everyone will meet in Miami.

I am sure my credit card company is going to love to see the charges on our account! But I have bad news for them as soon as the credit card bill arrives it will be paid in full.

Scoutdad,

I just had the final payment rush 11 days ago. It feels great! Only two more months to go - the last 11 months have been painful, but the closer it gets the less pain I feel. Have a great time on your cruise and be sure to report back.

Jodi

It's a great feeling, isn't it ScoutDad? Something about knowing it's mostly all paid for that makes it even MORE of a relaxing vacation for me.

Have a blast.

How exactly did you prepay your tips? Just charge and pay what you are going to tip and, that same amount HAL charges you will be a wash?

We have done that for the past 2 cruises. It is so nice to have it all taken care of before we go. Happy cruising.......

Woohoo, isn't that a great feeling! Congrats! Pre-paying the tips, too, a cool idea! :-)

Enjoy! Susie

I just tell my T/A to charge the standard tips to my account and he handles it!. If I get exceptional service while on board I can always give that person a cash tip.
