Drum Roll Please: Announcing the 2016 Cruisers' Choice Awards!
Once again, your cruise voice is loud and clear! Here are your choices for the best experiences at sea:
I too want to wish you the best for an amazing trip. It's been so fun reading your posts as you get ready for your voyage, and it was also so upsetting to read about the 'agency issue' that almost cost you your trip.
Did you ever get a cabin assignment? I'd love to know if they were able to upgrade you, even if it's just a little upgrade.
Hopefully you'll be able to post a little bit to let us know how things go.

Another question....cabin assignment....I finally received my cabin assignment....alas.....no upgrade. I was really hoping...but after all I am getting what I paid for and I am getting my trip. I will be happy right where I am....bottom, inside and what I could afford!! (a gift of a window surely would have been nice though! )
38 Day Voyage of the Vikings August, 2017
I've dreamed of sailing away all my life
Of sailing oceans so deep and blue
Of seeing places far and wide
I've dreamed of seeing old and new
I've lived my dreams every night
As I planned this, my Grand Voyage
Reading of the all the magical sights
Of clothes, and tales, I'll have no shortage
I've researched my ports of call
Plan to meet with Red Hatted Sisters
And will take pictures of them all
No vacation could be any better
I'm counting down to that wonderful day
When I'm on the ms Amsterdam
Saying finally, this is My Dream Day
As I sail away on a ship loving called "DAM"
Have a Wonderful time Karen!!!
I wanted you to know just how special you have become to all of us. And we are so happy to see this dream of yours coming true in just 10 more days.
