Unless you 'have to have' a specific treatment on a certain day there really is no need to go through the bother of booking in advance. It never gets over booked and you'll read in the ships daily...

That's good to hear, she has obviously taken a leaf out of Joanna's book ;). As you say, very unusual to hear her contract rotation is now QM2.
