Talked to Dad about it....

He might be interested.

But the downside is that they don't serve Kosher meals-- bad for my step-bro, but there are ways around it.

If you're still looking, cruisevalue.com gives really big discounts...like the biggest i've found around anywhere, you might want to give it a look.

Yeah, I've used americandiscountcruises.com a few times already. They have the best deals around - definitely the least expensive Princess cruises, and they also have free gratuities or onboard credits with many cruises. I definitely recommend them. If you want to see their prices click this: http://www.americandiscountcruises.com

I checked out both sites. Both had higher prices for this cruise, but i'll keep it in mind for next cruises. Thanks!

UPDATE: still working on dad.

Sorry, I forgot to mention - for Carnival, if you call American Discount over the phone and mention about the seniors they'll quote you a lower price than their web price.

Update: CALLED AMERICAN DISCOUNT- Same price as Cruise.com <actually same cabins because my confirmation with cruises.com expired>

My dad not says that he doesn't want to go, because he's not sure if my step-mom and brother can go. Plus he's being a cheap POS. (I only say this because he and my step-mom will end up going away by themselves at a time I won't be able to! <at even the same price or higher than i have now!>)

Ugh.

I know cruises cost $$$ but c'mon-- they will be going away soon! Also. December cruises are fucking ridiculously expensive!

I just need to be persistant. . . . . .

You must mean that Christmas and New Years cruises are ridiculously expensive. cuz the 2 weeks before the holidays are like dirt cheap. (but you miss school....so convince them for Thanksgiving since theyre cheap and you wont miss as much school!)

Ugh. I know. I tried that argument. He basically said, "Cruises cost money...." and I know he is pretty well off and CAN afford to take me/ us on a cruise. It's a fantastic deal + perfect timing.

One problem I thought of is... I want to still look at colleges, and I might need to do it during this time.
