I book ours 12-18 months out. First off, we live in South Dakota and drive down to NOLA, so we like to make it count by taking a full 2 weeks vacation. We need time to pay for lodging, gas, food, and to pay the cruise itself off. That doesn't even count shore excursions and whatever money we decide to budget on board the ship. I cut the credit cards up in 1998, we live on a cash basis for vacations.

Go for it and book ES (early saver) that way you will get price drops and OBC if the price goes down for your category. If your BF is concerned about canceling for some reason, purchase insurance. We have booked over a year out before. The only drawback is the anticipation!
