And then, for non-alcoholic relaxation, there's the Rainforest room, the exotic rasul, or couple time in the spa . . .
I agree. The bar at Palo is nice as well.

I haven't seen any refund for us yet. I figured we booked so cheap they would ask us for money. No rooms left for 5b but I priced 5a and it was over twice what we paid. Don't know what excites me more..... The cruise or the fact I got such a great deal!

My TA said DCL is processing them one stateroom at a time, so it might take a bit.

The 5A is almost 3x what I paid for the 5B!

We just added another person to our cabin and was afraid there wouldn't be room because there aren't many cabins left, but we got lucky. We're all getting really excited and need to start researching the ports and the canal history.

Wow, just looked. I have a 5A that I picked out and it's almost 2 grand more now! If anyone is interested there are still one bedroom cabins available for $14,000...........

Question for those PC veterans: do they sell rainforest passes for the whole 2 weeks? Cost?

Also, any suggestions for anything special we would need on this cruise? Bug spray? Allergy pills? I just don't know what to expect being that far south in May.

Sorry can't help out with the spa. In 12 cruises I have never once stepped in there. I would only bring bug spray if you go on a tour that goes to a rainforest to be safe. Also I don't know your allergies so that's hard to answer I say better safe than sorry.

Good job. All we have to do is figure out were we would like to stay in Miami. I am not planing on getting off the ship until it gets here to L.A. after Castaway. Got my transfers to LAX since my car will be there. Brunch is booked. DW tour in Cartagena is booked. Can't do flights till the day before we leave to get an idea of what looks good to get to Ft. Lauderdale.

They are doing funky things with inventory this week. Yesterday there were no porthole rooms for 4 and today the porthole rooms are back but the verandahs are all gone. Still a ton of inside rooms. One week to Silver check-in!

Hmmm, I do remember you - we must have chatted before/during the cruise. We are big fans of the longer itineraries...seems like we are not the only ones!
I think this is one cruise the guys really look forward to.I could never get John interested in cruising till the 2008 PC came up and together with it being my 60th birthday and being the Panama Canal I got him onboard!! Been hooked since.

Well there was loads of chat before the TA cruise. I don't think I could do a 3 or 4 night cruise again ever. Long ones are the best and even better if lots of sea days.

Yes, they did sell length of cruises Rain forest passes and they were A LOT! I'm away from home right now and can't check my navs, but i'm thinking they were in the upper 200 range. remind me again next week, if someone else hasn't already given you a definitive answer.

I took both allergy stuff and bug wipes, and didn't use either one, however, I did not go to the jungle, either. Expect 'hot' and 'wet'.

Happy Day, ALL!
