Default It pays to check for price drops.

Went in this morning and found some good savings. I have two balcony cabins booked on the Jewel out of Houston. By changing my res from Jan to Dec I was able to save $752 dollars on the two cabins. Not chump change by any means. Saved enough to pay for my shore excursions.

Those are some expensive excursions.

Enjoy your champagne in a private cabana while getting a swedish massage on the beach

Excursions for 4 people can run up the costs of the cruise pretty fast. And thats just the least expensive one's. Some of the more expensive would run a lot more than $752. Of course, I'd love that massage you mentioned.

Lucky you. Some people can't do that because they can't switch their vacations that easily. Seems you made out. Congrats.

Well, when you're retired one day kind of seems like the next one. December, January, no difference, both are kind of cold.
