Back-to-back November cruises out of
, same boat, but each cruise is
different (as it makes different stops). Fourteen days total, eight ports, and
we wouldn’t have to get off the ship between cruises. The clincher? Each cruise
started at $329/person. Miami
Well, hell. Basically, a fourteen day cruise for $660? But before we could commit, he had to make sure he could take off two weeks in a row, especially after only being back from a week’s vacation three weeks earlier and an employee being gone on maternity leave. By the time he got the boss’s okay, price went up to $379 and $389.
So he called the cruise line. Apparently, those rates are for bunk beds (ugh!) and the salesman couldn’t book with old rates (which I believe is bunk, but hey, what can you do?). So we would have to upgrade to a king bed. By the time all the taxes and stuff were added, it came to over $1000/person for both cruises.
Suddenly it didn’t seem like such a bargain. We declined.
It was probably for the best. I do need to make a trip out to
next year. We’ll just save our money for that instead. California
He still has those fifteen days to use. We’ll figure something out, I’m sure. He certainly won’t lose them.
Are you taking any trips this year? I’ll be accompanying my husband to
Atlanta in August (business trip for
him), attending Dragon*Con in Atlanta in
September, and then taking a car trip to in October (daughter’s Footy tournaments). I’m
looking forward to the breaks. San
