That explains the request I received today about someone being bumped from their cruise on the Wonder and asked for me to re-do a graphic..........at first I thought "How in the world do you get bumped from a DCL Cruise?" - then I thought maybe they just rescheduled..........but this explains a LOT!

Ok everyone....................I have something to tell ya'll. This is very hard for me to write.................let alone think about it. I'm getting chocked up a bit just sitting here thinking about writing this to you all. Not sure I can do this tonight................ It's just too much for me to say................it's hard for me to put into words. I'm going to have to sleep on this tonight and see if I can't put it into words for all of you tomorrow.

DW and I were booked on the January 19th sailing as part of a B2B. Our TA got us rebooked (with the 25% savings) for January 10th preserving our B2B. To get the same cabin on both ends we had to upgrade and of course the airfare is now $125 more being a weekend to weekend so overall the prices actually work out to being close to a wash.

Glad your TA worked it out for you, but a wash is better than a loss AND...you got to upgrade basically for free!!!

Deets. No offense but you can't write that post and leave us hanging... :D

So I did something awesome or crazy or dumb. The way my work schedule works out is 3 days on, 1 day off, 4 days on, 6 days off. So I just worked my 3 days on, and I have 1 day off and noticed we could be short staffed tonight (4 aides on, but no one in the ICU and one gal called in sick last night. So if the gal wasn't sick it would be 3 on the floor, 1 in the ICU. The kicker is someone may need to be in the ER tonight.). I signed up to work tonight meaning 8 days in a row on. But with the 2 hours of overtime from a couple nights ago with possibly working tonight means more cruise fund money. That or bridesmaid dress. Either way.... And we're short staffed next week as well so I maybe adding extra shifts for fun and games. Because nothing like having a 0.7 FTE, and thinking "I have a week off, I should use it!"

We did. Unfortunately there are a few people telling about losing over $1000 because of not being able to rebook this cruise and having non-refundable airfare. We were very lucky we didn't have any issues along those lines.

Anyway we get our Disney fix so we don't go to far into withdrawal before the Panama Canal cruise.

Ok, ok, ok, ok, Sorry everyone. I was going to post yesterday, but had to go out for a while and that turned into an all day errand. (That's what I get for volunteering to lend a hand!!! DW keeps telling me to keep my big fat mouth shut!!! Why don't I listen to her!!!)

This was my stupid attempt at trying to be funny..................and I blew it. Sorry everyone. Nothing serious. What I was talking about is that DW and I are going on a cruise..........................but not a Disney Cruise!!! We are going on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas in about 3 weeks. I was going to say something like I felt like we were being traitors or something along those lines. How I felt like we let everyone down by not sailing Disney. Anyway, a stupid idea on my part. Hope ya'll can forgive me for posting a stupid thing like that.

I do have a question for all of my fellow cruisers who fly often. DW and I haven't flown in gosh, it must be something like 15 or 20 years. Do you have to pay extra to get two seats together on a plane? The last time we flew that was not a problem or even an option. When you made reservations for two the seats were together. But we have heard you have to pay extra to get two seats together, is this true? Thanks everyone, and again, so sorry for the stupid idea I had. (I'm full of bad ideas...............just ask DW.............she'll tell you it's true!!!)

No, sorry for the confusion. We are still going to be on this cruise the 2014 East Bound Panama Canal cruise with all of you. We are just sneaking in another cruise on the Oasis. I will be a 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Oasis. My silly attempt at trying to be funny really blew up in my face!!! Again, sorry everyone.
