Need help from you veteran cruisers. We have sailed on the Magic twice. Both times we had a category 6 with verandah. That room (from this June 2002) has increased $1500 for the same room June 2004. I am now considering a category 9 because it is just more affordable. Has anyone else done this? I will miss my verandah but at this point I just feel lucky to be able to go..................any opinions on whether I should save a little harder for the 6 or be happy with the 9. Thanks for your advice....I learn more here than anywhere else.
