We have booked a balcony cabin midships on Baja deck....(how do you pronounce that?).
It cost $3831.00 each
and we booked through Travelworld. It is a 14 day cruise though. I'm sure the shorter cruises would be much cheaper.
There are only the two of us and I really fancy a balcony cabin. I have this picture in my head of me with a cocktail, leaning on our private balcony with the breeze in my hair looking at the islands as we sail by.... so I am really excited about it.
Of course the reality will be much different. It will probably be blowing a gale, my hair will be flattened to my head and the umbrella in my cocktail will blow over the side, but it is nice to dream.
I am saving up for spending money with a $2.00 tin. I have one of those metal money boxes you get from cheap shops -the ones with the dollar notes printed on the side - and I never ever spend the $2.00 coins I get as change. I save them in the tin and you would be surprised how fast they grow. There is no other denomination in the tin other than the $2.00 coins. Last time I saved up $1450, which helped enormously. My tin is starting to get heavy now in readiness for our next cruise. Hopefully in April 2007. It is exciting opening it up, the dining table is like Aladdins cave with the huge pile of gold.
Hope you can join us Pommiepom.
