Default Finally got the next one booked

Looks like we will be cruising in the Southern Caribbean next Feb on Radiance of the Seas. Have heard a lot of positive comments on this ship, the itinary (for me at least) is to die for plus we have our first Cat. D. aft cabin, so excited.

I still have to book the air part, any ideas if I should do it right away and wait a little bit, and see if the fares come down??

So, anyone else out there going to be onboard with us??

Airfares are higher right now. I would wait to see if you get any winter sales. However, you can always put a bid out on priceline.com . Don't know what part of the country you live in, but a lot of smaller regional airlines are usually cheaper than the big airlines.
Happy cruising!

Sounds great, Donna! I'll be anxious to hear about the Radiance seeing as I'm on the Brilliance one for March! Great cabin, too! Sue

Hey you guys,
Wish you were all going with, just got a decent deal on air too, unfortunately the origional price I was trying to purchase went up while I was putting in the info?? I really didn't think that was a fair way of doing, guess someone beat me too it, but once you start, I felt that, that price should of stayed?? I still got air less than $500 to San Juan, so thats a good thing :-)

Super news, Donna!!!!

Glad to hear you finalized your plans, got the room you wanted and the airline tickets.

I'm with you, that doesn't sound right about the ticket price changing, but at least you did get a great deal.

Let the countdown begin. :-)

Phyll

Hey Donna, Hope you'll like the Radiance. I really liked the food on the Vision, & they had great ice tea. And I LOVE good ice tea!!! Is this a Cruisemates cruise? Maybe one day I'll get a couple other gals to go on one of yours. My husband isn't interested in going on any more, for now anyway. We're "Snowbirds" so we'll be in Yuma, AZ when you're on your cruise. I know it's exciting when you get one booked!! Hope you have lots of fun.

You'll have to let me know how you like the Radiance. I just booked a family cruise for Alaska next July on Radiance. We have a Cat. D mid ship.

Hi Elise,
Will let you know about the cabin catagory, should be very nice and I love the lay-out of them, plus this huge balcony will be great.

Delores,
Nope, not a Cruisemates cruise, wish is was, will be happy if all of you join me anyway?
Come on now!

Hi Marc,
Just today, figured I'd take a look and I found origionally a fare of only $408 from American, non stop. So I decided to take it right there, and before I could finish the transaction and hit finish, I got a message that the fare changed to 478. What to do, I re-did it and took it before it went up again, so I'm good. Just 2 days ago same exact American flights were 688, go figure. I think I just happened to check at the right time, we saved over $400 :-)

Appreciate the offer, but I think this is pretty good and the times are good too, $300 less than the cruiseair too, so today I booked the cruise and the flights, now just I just want to get the insurance.
