117 days plus some hours until the cruise.

Seems so far away but considering that we made the reservation 210 days ago, that's not to bad.

Of course, I'm always looking to plan another trip.:)

Security lines in Orlando airport take a VERY LONG TIME. Then you have to get on the train to the other terminal for the flight. Suggest you take mid-afternoon flight or later just to be safe.

Mini-suites are not considered "suites."
On the Breakaway, Haven has a variety of cabins, some indicate they are suites.

On some other ships, there are Penthouse Suites.

If I commit to a private tour, I go or expect to pay my share unless I find someone to take my place.

I don't set up any tours that require payment before the cruise.

No matter where we have our cabin, always do a lot of walking while on the ship. Use the stairs a lot, especially if going to a lower deck.

Wonder if they are going to check anyone who is carrying a bag to make sure they didn't take anything out. Should be interesting to see the many confrontations that will occur.
