I suppose you could get some people together and have your own version of the Boston Tea Party, but I doubt that it would have much of an effect.

This probably only applies to contract renewals with excursion vendors. The FTTF for each cruise will probably be posted much sooner.

From what I've read, initially there are 30 FTTF's made available for sale. But that may be just an average, depending on the size of the ship.

If any TA's have unsold cabins that they've been holding, they turn them back over to the cruise line after the final payment date. The day after final payment date is your best time to check.;)

By the way, we're booked on the Vista 4/8/17, and nothing's been posted yet for this one either. My guess is there won't be anything before the end of this March or the first of April.

Sure. You could bring your own wine glasses. Just pack them so they're well protected. If you don't want to risk losing them or having them broken, leave them at home, and once you've boarded, ask...

One thing you might want to do is compare the on board amenities on both ships, and see which might be closer to what you're looking for. Also, go on YouTube and look for videos of each. If a picture...

I like to bring my own (unbreakable) travel mug. The cups provided on the ship are too small. If you want to wash out your mug, just use a little bit of the liquid shower soap in your cabin. ;)
