Default Wait listed successfully?

I'm thinking about getting on the wait list for a New England cruisetour (for a mini-suite). I'd like to know if you've had success being wait listed or if it's been unsuccessful .

Thanks,

Hi Fern,
There could be a chance, especially after the 60 days prior to the cruise, when sometimes people have to cancel before a penalty kicks in. Then some cabins open up, worth waiting for if you really want it.

I thought the waitlist you were talking about was for dinner. Was on one and there were hundreds before me for traditional dinner, didn't get it, but it had me wonder, if so many wanted it, why not continue with more seating for the traditional dinner times?

Donna, i have the same thought as you about the waitlist for Traditional Dining. We hear a lot of posts of people who have to get waitlisted for Traditional Dining, but at the same time there are lots of posts from people who totally love Personal Choice Dining. I think that if the demand for either becomes overwhelming then and only then will something get done. We always book our dining choice - late seating traditional dining when we book our cruise and so far have not had a problem 'knock on wood"

I kept watching the available cabins on our cruise because I was considering trying to upgrade to a mini-suite (in the end we did not). It seems like more cabins opened up as we neared time to sail. I think that may be a sign of our economic times.
