Didn't think I would get the Ultra invite since I didn't get 7500 points during 1,of my 3 premier cruises in November, January and March. Was pleasantly surprised and booked the Freedom for December 9th.

Darn wish I waited a day...already snapped up the Vista out of Miami...would have preferred cruising out of my backyard. But never been on the Vista and it is over my birthday so will be great as well.

Cheers good luck and happy cruising.

I'd be interested to know as well. Gong on my first premier in February, hoping to get an ultra invite.
