Since there remain about 4 - 6 cabins in Cat. 11B, and since there remain that many cabins in several other inside and ocean view cabins and since KSF would work great for us, and since we're not too concerned about cabin location (as long as we are onboard the ship), I think the risk of gaining a $1,200 savings vs. paying an extra $400 is worth it.

So we're going to take the risk and cancel our current booking. Then watch for special offers and watch how the ship is filling up everyday, and then re-book and pay-in full within the 75 day mark.

This strategy makes me nervous and I am not generally a risk taker, but weighing the risk vs. the reward, for us this plan makes sense.

curious, did you cancel?? i am still considering it, but i can make reservations the 9th if i PIF by then, so I am torn. Do you happen to recall the IGT rates on the other galveston 8 day cruises?? the price i mean? i was thinking something like $1650?? but I cannot remember and I didnt write it down.
