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! )
