Default Supposed to be on a cruise....yet i'm at home :(

I'm depressed for the first real time in my life. For the first time there was any question as to whether we're going or not, we're actually not going. And I don't know what to do with a long weekend off...i'm going to go crazy. As a TA, we have priority for cancellations and is the way to go free...for some reason, nobody read the horrible reviews on the Sovereign and didn't cancel...thus no cabin for us. It SUCKS! Console me

my mom writes articles about cruising with families (shes the writer for this website on family cruising) and we get our cruises for free. and now that i write articles on here as well, both of our airfare gets paid for by the cruise line. its a pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

I cruise so often because my mom is a travel agent. Its a part time job and she also works in hotels as a developer and hospitality management company owner, a like field. Sometimes we go for free, sometimes theres a small fee. Being Platinum/Diamond + members, many times the ship pays for the trip and my mom is also an avid VIP blackjack player, which usually lands us in suites. But as the saying goes, beggars cant be choosers so since we're traveling on the cruiselines expense, you can't bit*h when a last minute booking doesn't go through. Not to mention, both of us provide correspondance and feedback on the ships, itineraries and onboard service to RCI's head office and its similar to how Alex and her family coordinate with the lines, except its directly to the line versus on a forum.
