Yes, you will get the FCC back if you decide to cancel. We've done this a couple of times (sadly) and did not have a problem.

You're very welcome.

Yes you do, it's your money & credit. I've done it many times in years gone by.

Edit Craig, I see your post above beat me to it.

Thanks to you both. It is exciting to think about and I did email the the gal who is doing the website with our pic and names...so come Wed I will probably book the cabin we have on hold.

The mini suites were already sold out other than for a guarantee - they will not confirm a specific cabin and we are too picky to not book a specific cabin.

Barb is traveling on business this week but will put the final design together went she gets back.

The 3" button "blanks" have already been ordered but we won't actually start making the buttons until we're much closer to our sailing date. If you're interested in ordering buttons with the Rockin' Royals logo design, please see post #234 on this thread.

Craig (WineCountryCruiser) and Barb (CON_GLITTER)
Thank you so much for doing this for us. I love the button and an email is on its way to you!

Welcome Lisa and Charlie! We'll be just down the hall from you (D407). You'll be very glad that you booked. This is going to be a really great cruise. Looking forward to meeting you.

The overnight stay means the ship is in port overnight. You board the ship and it is your hotel for the night. You get a whole day to tour before it departs.

The logo looks good. Is there any way you can mention "Maiden Voyage" or "Maiden TA" on it?

Hi everyone. The Rockin' Royals logo design has been finalized. The final design now appears in my signature.

If you're interested in ordering any 3" buttons with this logo design, please see post #234 in this thread for details.

Thanks to all for your comments,

Craig (WineCountryCruiser) and Barb (CON_GLITTER)

It is interesting that the person that came to this country from Russia first developed and named St. Petersburg, Florida....in order to build the city he needed lumber, so he went north and cut the trees from that area...which was then named Odessa.

I understand this. It happens so, that Odessa is in Ukraine, not
RUSSIA. And, Odessa is in the area which is called Ukrainian steppe,
like a praire in the US - a flat land, with high grass in spring, and
nothing in summer, and no water.
Definitely no trees.

Thought I'd found all the spots to sign up, but just looked at this closely today.

You may know by now that we are Joanie and Sam from Pennsylvania. We are situated fairly close to Baltimore, Philadelphia, DC, NYC and Pittsburgh. Goes without saying that sports fans in this area are somewhat divided.

Don't have a cabin number since we booked a guarantee, and figure it may be quite a while before we know our exact location.

Joanie

Also, I love the buttons. Will double checked if I have indeed placed an order.

Glad you found one more spot to check in as that gave me an opportunity to see your post and to extend my welcome to you and Sam and to let you know we are happy to have you join us. Looking forward to meeting you both.
