I'm sorry I didn't mean to get you excited. The only nonstop I can find is to Paris or London. I never found non-stop to Barcelona or Rome. I wonder if we could fly to Atlanta and then, take the non-stop. I can fly from Sacramento to DC and take non-stop from there. With these prices and college expenses looming in 3 years we might even have to cancel our entire trip. Because the flight is costing more than the actual 7 night cruise I book with NCL-Epic. I'm looking at Alaska right now. We can drive to Seattle or Vancouver. So, we would save a ton in airfare and I have family in Seattle so no hotel costs.

I saw your reference to SFO and had to share that our license plates in VA are SFO1 and SFO2 closest thing we can get to home!

I miss home too. You know I think you are from my home town too. So, I'm kinda bummed we are not on this cruise anymore because I would have loved to meet you.

Yes, I grew up on Tamarack 2 house down from St. Charles school. I think, we talked earlier in this cruise meet thread probably when we first booked.

I forgot about that probably the heat here
I went to St Charles and my DH went to Brittan Acres! Too bad we won't get to meet.

Our GTY just came through wildly early, we purchased 11C GTY and received... you guessed it, 11C. To get it this early it must be a very full cruise?

I think it is right now, but I've heard a lot of people say they are cancelling. There's a lot of time between then and now...I would think it would open up.

It's a long way to when we have to pay for the whole shebang ... Getting your GTY now seems like jumping the gun.

We booked an 11c-gty opening week and received our stateroom number within a few weeks. Still keeping our fingers crossed (or wishing for some pixie dust!)

Ok - we have a potential deal breaker....I've been tracking the airfare prices through United (we get free luggage) and I've been particularly tracking the one direct flight they have both ways. Well right now you can price the flight through coming home a week before we are. Are you ready for this?//

The flight that has been pricing out at about 924 round trip per person, has now gone up to 2,045....more than double????? Really??? I expected it to go up, but not that much....our alternative would be to not go direct which brings it down to $1300 but requires us to leave a day earlier...I don't know if we can do that??? Over $8K for airfare....what are they thinking???

They're thinking they can get that from somebody who likes to plan early. It should go down.... it still is about a year away. Don't worry yet.

This is why it is important to fare watch so you will know when the fare is a good deal. We noticed with our nonstop from ATL flying Wednesday and returning Wednesday that the fare has gone up considerably from an April departure to May departure and more in June. Right now the flight is $1456... And that price varies depending on the day of the week we check for the same flights and dates. Nearly always more on a weekend when we look.

Edit: I hadn't checked today... The same flight that was $1456 yesterday is $1526 today. DCL wants $1818 which will include transportation from airport to port and back.
