Thanks Mike for putting the link out there. I looked for it, but obviously NOT in the right place.

I'm very excited that we have this board. I was worried that I may lose touch with some of you as our plans for March are still up in the air! Hoping to be able to join you on the Summit but will determine that down the road.
Dave and Dawn,
Have you checked the Explorer prices lately? Our cruise has had 2 price drops since booking..Whoo-Hoo! (Down a total of 260 which means more entertainment money)
Love seeing everyones pics!
Have a great week!
Marilyn( now gramma of 9 with number 10 on the way, smile!)

Gary (AKA Cruise Director Extraordinaire) thank you for creating this forum & Mike thanks so much for the link to it!!

I agree with Mar that now we don't have to lose contact between cruises!!!
Mar did Lori book the EOS for you? I asked her yd to look at that one for October for John's BD ... would make us Platinum before the Summit!!!
Certainly hoping both you guys & Debbie book the Summit!!! Nothing like having the gang together .... Maybe Debbie can even put a bug in Mindy's ear about the Summit!!

Did she actually call you with the price decreases?

Wow- I need to pay better attention! I just came across this board.. duh...
I caught one price break and actually took a better cabin/category for our date on the Explorer Bermuda. Checked last night and prices are up about $60. I noticed many people just booking and joining that roll call so the sailing must be selling pretty well.
Added this spot to my favorites...

No,she didn't call me but I kept checking the prices, and when they dropped first by $100 and then another $60, I just gave her a call each time and she made the adjustments for me!

Debbie - I haven't transferred the Summit to a TA yet. I'm looking at some options .... We always used the same TA & I told her that other TA's have incentives that they've offered to other cruisers in the past. I'm checking with some other TA's I know personally to see what they have to offer - kind of like Ken & Gary suggested. Naturally I have Gary's person on the desk!!!

I was wondering where the "transfer" of the shipboard reservations were with everyone ..... Know Gary & Mike are set.

Mar ... good to know about the price drop & need to call the TA each time for the adjustment.

I have been using Pavlus Travel - Cheapertravel dot com since 2005 and have been very happy with them but their incentives have dropped a little each cruise. They go by the amount paid for the cruise. I got $140 obc this past cruise and for next year's it is $125 but I am paying $200 more for the cruise. I tried to get more for our group, but that was it....for 1 or 6.
I still haven't transfered.
I hate to say it but I am kind of waiting for the wedding date to be set. There are a lot of issues going on with family and where the wedding "SHOULD" be so they haven't set a date yet. If it is too close to the cruise we might have to back out....which would really bum me out at this point. But it is what it is. Good thing I have a little bit of time yet.

One week and we are on a plane to San Juan to go on the Summit. I WISH you all were coming with us! It was sooo great on the Adventure and my CC group for this cruise is really not active at all. I think I was spoiled by our group! It's been a lot colder then usual here lately so I am looking forward to the sun just wish you could all come!
