When I called MS 2 weeks ago on when 2002 cruise points would be available, they said in Feb. Just called today and now they're saying in a month or two. Hmm!! I was really hoping to go next Feb. and would like to book 11 months out. Plus, if the points do go up a lot, I may go at the end of 2000. Gee, how do you plan for this? Any idea how much they usually raise the points? Oh, MS did tell me that I could go ahead and book for Feb. 2002 without the actual points being announced. Eeks, what if I didn't have enought points, then what??
