No it's never too early. We are booked on the Oct 7, 2011 followed by the Oct 19, 2011. There is a big thread on the other cruise site but as usual you can't get on. I think they said over 200 people have posted they are going.
This will be our first time in this area. Can't wait. This is #1 on my bucket list. We have done #1-4 on DH bucket list so now it is my time. If you have been to this area before.....all advise would be welcome.
