Tell us how the ship is -- I've been eyeing it for our big fall cruise.

Will do.

Still looking for other 3/13/04 cruisers.

Guess what -- we are booked now!!!

The ship is arriving a couple days early, so they are doing a janut down to Ensenada for 2 nights, leaving March 11. Too cheap to pass up, so we booked it (got it here on Cruise Bazaar for $99 including port each)

Can't wait!

Harry

Hey Harry,
I'm waitlisted on the March 11th departure too (which will make it a back-to-back with my Mar 13th trip), so I might be there too if I'm lucky. I'm number 18 on the waitlist, which I'm told is pretty good.

Oh cool -- I was wondering whether you were gonna be able to tack it on as a pre-cruise cruise. :-)

Good luck -- that is the lowest wait number I've seen.

Harry

Hey Harry,
A Princess agent suggested I change my 'accepted' categories to include outside cabins -- which made me number '5' on the waitlist. I'm not sure how that will benefit me though, seeing as I'm really looking for the incredible special YOU got. She said to turn down each particular offer and request to stay on the list -- and just wait until the right offer comes through. Sounds like an odd strategy, but... I thought I'd take a stab at it. Is your guess that everyone has paid for their tickets, or are we still in some 48 or 72 hour window where people can call to confirm? Hmmmm.

That's interesting ... I guess more people opted for the balconies than I thought (or maybe people are as not as cheap as me) :-)

Shar from our Pride cruise got bumped up one, so I think people can still cancel. Hmmmm, maybe it's that 40 day window or something?

The funny thing is Princess was giving out all this erroneous info at first because they didn't know squat about the cruise. Now they have their act together. (Read the messages on the Princess board here)

Hey Harry,
Just an update... I'm now #10 on the waitlist for the March 11th cruise, was 14 on Friday (today's Sunday) so it looks like it's moving a bit. What do you think my chances are?

Hi LAcruiser!
Just thought you'd like to know that there will be two more "family members" on board the Diamond Princess on March 13th. I just booked a stateroom for me and a friend yesterday. Not too many good cabins available. But, it will be fun (think positive, think positive!). I'm 38 and my buddy is 44.

-Dave

Hey Dave,
Just sent you an email (at the address in your CruiseMates profile). I wouldn't be too worried about your cabin... All category cabins on Princess are great. (How's that for thinking positive?) Drop me a line and let's plan a 'meet and greet'. I also plan to ask the CD to have an FOD gathering. Have you ever done that before?

Anyway... I can't wait. Hopefully this month will fly by.
