The title says it all! We have offically booked our cruise for Jan of 2011. We had received an email letting us know about the sales they were having for labor day to get rid of inventory so we decided to check out pricing. We found a killer deal on the Jan 30th sailing of the voyager. They had discounts for both being a resident of the state of Texas and for labor day sale. We found an E1 category balcony that just happens to be at the aft of the ship. I am talking the very aft. We will be in one of those beautiful balconies overlooking the butt of the ship. LOL. We found it for only $759 per person. That is over a $100 dollars cheaper than last year, a better category and in one of the prime spots I have been hoping to land since our first cruise. This cruise will be a week later than the week we had talked about taking but they sailings were $25 cheaper than the week we originally wanted to go. I will post the itenerary at the end of this post so you can see where all we are getting to go. We will also be taking the week after the cruise gets back off to relax, get taxes done, and to just regroup.
We were not expecting to book this early as we normally wait until November or December with our christmas bonus but we couldnt pass up the killer deal and the aft balcony is the only one in inventory. Luckily since we did a future cruise booking on our last voyage we got a discount on the deposit and only had to pay $250. Plus we will start off the trip with $200.00 on board credit to spend. We have already discussed booking Portofino's again. So that will help out in that regards. We will also probably hit up johnny rockets again a few times as we loved the burgers/fries and onion rings there. We might get off the ship with a really cheap onboard statement for a change. We have definitely decided no art auctions this year as we still havent hung and framed all the pieces from last year. We are thinking about getting that done with our income tax refund. Taking all the pieces to michaels and having them do it as we liked their work better than hobby lobby.
I guess that is about it for now. Now to posting the ports of call for this week as they are different than the other one.
