Pax on a WC seem to have a different mindset. Your cabin is your bedroom.. the rest of the ship.............your living room, dining room, family room, etc. etc. A good friend of mine did a 103 night wc in a 99 sqft inside cabin on the QE2! Yikes! I still can't figure out where she put all her stuff.

Everyone I know who has done a world cruise has told me the same thing.. "it went by so fast!" Every day a different adventure.. even the sea days.
And did that answer my question?

Technical question - what is the difference between "waitlist' and "sold out"?

Checked the O website this morning and they're showing 4 categories open. The others are either waitlisted or sold out.

Thanks.

Wait List means that the category is sold out, but they realize there will be cancellations so they are still accepting reservations on those categories. As people cancel, those on the Wait List will get offered a room. Sold Out, I assume, means that the Wait List has so many people on it, they are reasonably confident that they would never have so many cancellations that they'd go through the entire Wait List.

So (and this is just an example) if a category has 20 rooms, after the 20 are full maybe they take 10 more reservations on Wait List. Once they then have 30 "reservations" for that category of 20 rooms, they stop adding names to the Wait List because they know from experience that half of the first 20 people that have an actual room won't cancel, so there is no reason to add an 11th person waiting in line.

That confirms it
PH on any segment is out of the question.

(P.S. - Laraine - it's handy to have inside connections, I see)
LOL

I am hoping he was serious about that itinerary on Nautica.
OK - 2 cabins booked so far. LOL
And I have friends who will join us -- that's 3.
Not bad for an itinerary that's not even out yet.

If he said it will be, it will be - It's a wonderful cruise. We did it two years ago - only hope they will keep Burma in. We lost it and we were very unhappy. Arlene

I know
But FDR is a funny guy with a dry sense of humor
"Anything for you" could have several different interpretations
I prefer to interpret it as a YES.

Burma is included on the World Cruise segment.

I thought this thread was about the World Cruise. (Which looks like it's a success, at least initially.) Suites and Insides waitlisted already, and some balcony categories as well?
