I hit the summer sales for our cruise in Feb. The formal wear I will check out after the holidays when on sale. Seems like every time I run out tp shop, I see something that says, that would be nice for the cruise! I always overpack! It is all part of the excitement, don't you think?

I always shop the sales. I have two cruises planned. One in Feb 05 and one in Jan 06. I'm thinking of one in 07 but may wait and save and bring grandchildren.

I never stop adding to my cruise collection, but my favorites are the end of summer sales.
