We also book on board for the 10% off. We cruise mostly during school, pulling our kids.
I've done 4 in a 10A, and would do it again. If you're flexible about ships, you can often find a cheaper sailing. Have you checked any of the DCL sailings on the classics?
we're flexible on everything except going in summer.
Even booking for next summer about 3k was the cheapest I could find.
what are GTY and guarantee rates?
