I booked both of the 7 day Mardi Gras Elite cruises (06/05 and 07/10) yesterday. My offer included a free* balcony. I managed to grab the same stateroom for both cruises, a category 8L extended balcony on deck 10.
The 06/05 cruise came to a total of $127.74 and includes $800 OBC. The 07/10 cruise came to a total of $118.74 and also includes $800 OBC. Couple those incredibly low rates with the paid parking at the port, free drinks everywhere on the ship and all of the other Elite Cruise perks...it was impossible to pass up. Now fingers are crossed hoping those cruises actually sail.
