I am not sure what the discount was exactly because I called the day the package came out and the lady was helpful but too busy to be really helpful. She said that due to call volumes they had to keep calls short.

Anyway, here's what we got out of the discount. We were able to move from a non-preferred room at POP to a preferred room at POR. The difference was like 80 bucks. I want to say the room at POR was discounted 25% and the tix were slightly discounted. Hope that helps

as much as i love talking about it, months and months of hearing about it will just wear on me and then eventually i' ll be sick of hearing about it, lol. i think if i can hold out through february, then maybe them knowing about it will help marvh go by. maybe ill make a countdown chain at 40-50 days out and surprise them with it.

Just the airfare, first prize. Grand prize was the whole shootin' shabang. But I no longer enter any Orbitz contests.

We have to keep it a secret until Easter too!!! Our daughter's birthday is April 15th, which is RIGHT after Easter/Spring Break this year. We gave her the cruise pamphlet for Christmas and told her we're going in July. We're going to basically start driving there and not tell her where we're heading in March.

Tee hee hee

I ended up deciding on QS just because the menu was more appealing to us so I recommend just looking at the menu and seeing whether lunch or dinner looks tastier to you and your family

i don't particularly care for either of the menus. the main reason I'd do dinner is to get to meet Beast!
