While this has never happened to me personally, I did meet someone on our first Vantage cruise who had been cancelled due to over-selling and rebooked on our cruise. Unfortunately they could not get their original cabin category and had to settle for a cheaper cabin. I am surprised that Vantage hasn't offered you an alternative date. As for airfare, that's a good question...I would imagine that if Vantage booked air they will rebook at no charge but if you booked on your own you could be in trouble depending on the airline. Closest I ever came to being victim of over-booking was Vantage Costa Rica when they called and told me ship was over-booked and would I change dates. Since I was traveling with 4 other people from west coast, they left us alone and apparently changed someone else. I would imagine they all do it...so they can avoid last minute empty cabins., but it stinks.
