Hey Everyone! Just wanted to let you know I do have your requests and I am working on them. RCCL has a great online system for groups and I am learning its little quirks!

Didn't want you all to think I am ignoring you!!! Confirmations should be out by the end of the day tomorrow!

So excited to be doing something new and can't wait for this cruise.

Nice, get to celebrate my birthday in St. Thomas and finally get to go to a DIS event. Only problem it's over a year away. Anyone know how to modify the space time continuum?

Rats! We were thinking about changing our Aug 2013 Fantasy sailing to this one but with it overlapping with the start of school we are out. Bummer.

Well, DUH! No wonder the prices for quads were lower. Kids are back in school then and who pulls their kids out the first week of school? Not very well thought out date change!

The issue with the earlier date is that we could get very few cabins that sleep 3 or 4 guests (wasn't about price, we just couldn't get any!). Therefore we couldn't accomodate very many families at all. This is true for most of the summer sailings.

In many areas, school actually doesn't go back until after Labour Day.

If there is one thing we have learned, there will never be the perfect date for everyone. While the end of June may have been more ideal, if we couldn't get cabins to sleep families it wouldn't have worked anyway.

It does seem like a long way away, but I need the time to save some money for drinks on board...

We will need to as well. Normally have aback that we put pocket change in and use that for extra fun money on trips. Amazing how much change adds up over a year or so.

I'm sorry if you think this was not well thought out.

We actually spent months working with RCCL on trying to get a group date that we thought would benefit the most people.

As Tracey mentioned, we had a big issue getting quad space staterooms on any sail date over the summer. So while it might have been a 'better' date for some it would have been prohibitive for familes of 3 or more to travel. They would have had to book 2 staterooms instead of one and in some cases pay a single supplement on the second stateroom.

Some dates were so expensive (double and more the pricing we have now) that even if we had the perfect date and the perfect inventory we would have shut many people out of affording to go.

Maybe not enough for the Owner's Suite with Balcony, though.

Thanks, Tracy. When I heard Pete say the dates had changed because "we had some pricing issues and we decided to switch the dates so it would be better for people with kids" I thought that meant it was about pricing.

To those families who can go--have a great time. No way we can pull kids out of school the first week.

looking at the deck plan, it seems there are two banks of elevators - one set seems to be sort of towards the aft, and the other set between fore and midship....
anyone know if one or the other location is preferred?

i know there are cabins that have the bed by the balcony and others that have the sofa by the balcony...

i think i'd prefer having the sofa by the balcony...

is there a reason i might not like that configuration?
