Default OMG I couldn't pass it up, Yay! w/ a bit of buyer's remorse

Well my cruise withdrawls have gone and done it to me again...

T.A. e-mailed me a deal I couldn't refuse (i.e. 10 day Panama Canal cruise over X-mas for $911 inclusive of fees and taxes w/ unobstructed outside cabin on Regal Princess) The best part is that every port of call is new to us including: Acapulco, Huatulco, Mexico; Puerto Quetzal, Guatamala; Putarenas, Costa Rica; Panama Canal, Cristobal, Panama, Aruba, & Puerto Rico. (We've only been to P.R. but have gone through the canal before.)

We even got a great open jaw airfare from Portland. I'm very excited but my checking account is looking a little lean. Oh well, I'll get over that little detail!


P.S. Any suggestions for a reasonably priced hotel or B&B prestay in Acapulco?

I have learned that post-cruise withdrawal lasts a lot longer than buyer's remorse And Christmas it just around the corner.... what a deal!

That sounds like a great deal. Color me green with envy.

Congrats on the great deal. No buyers remorse, we deserve anything we can get! especially a cruise. The way I look at it, it was fate, meant to be you to go on the cruise or you wouldn't have gotten the email from tA.

The buyers remorse only lasts for a short time. In a day or two you be filled with such glorious expectation that you won't even remember those pangs of regreat when you wrote out the check. Just think of it as a fabulous Christmas Gift to yourself, after all, don't you deserve it?!!!

It seems like a fabulous price and a great itinerary.
