You are correct - it does try to stay at the 'set-point' that it has been at for the last few years - took a couple months for mine to stay under the 200 POF mark - each new drop in POF is the same - go down - go up - go up - go down.... well you get the picture!

Browsing through the RCL web site yesterday afternoon (incognito as it works better) They have changed Ovation's May cruises to include a 9-day Japan cruise - 16 May! Booked it for Sam's 70th Birthday Airfare is quite reasonable also from LAX! No other travel web site is showing this cruise yet - deposits are refundable - very reasonably priced - D4 with large balcony $2100

Finally broke through plateau - down 94 POF Yeah - lost 4.4 POF this month! We leave for Cabo on 2 Sept and then have friends from England doing a short 4 day cruise- we will then be 'tour guides' for them for 10 days here - and we leave 10 Oct for 42 days in Venice and B3B cruises!

Want to drop another 6+ over the next 7 weeks!
