Default Costa Cruise Sale

Did anyone buy a cruise with the sale prices. I looked today a Christmas Caribbean cruise for $459 for an interior but $1,200 for a balcony. The interior price is great for christmas but I would have to fly across the country and with plane tickets during Christmas it wouldnt be that great of a price.

I too looked at the Costa sale, but I too found it to be pretty much of a "come on". A few good prices, but nothing I could do.
A few months back my T.A. called me and told me about super fares aboard "Triumph" for Feb. 1st. She asked if I was interested. DUH.....I'm always interested! We booked, and now I'm ready to rock-n-roll aboard "Triumph" Feb. 1st '09. Come on along,,,the price is RIGHT!

How great were the prices. The only problem is I can't cruise in the beginning on February.

Cat 4A, I picked the cabin, $470 all inclusive, port fees, taxes, and fuel surcharge. How could you go wrong? $67 per day.
