    curious, did you cancel?? i am still considering it, but i can make reservations the 9th if i PIF by then, so I am torn. Do you happen to recall the IGT rates on the other galveston 8 day cruises?? the price i mean? i was thinking something like $1650?? but I cannot remember and I didnt write it down.

    For the 2/15 and 3/1 cruises, IGTs were going for $698/pp [OGTs for $798; VGTs for $898]. IGTs haven't been offered yet on any of the other 8-nt Bahamian cruises, but I believe that all 6 categories of inside cabins (10A-C & 11A-C) are still available at least for May The Royals and 2-bdrm suites are booked. I don't know how up-to-date these figures are, but there seems to be cabins in most categories available for the May cruise.

    Hi s232271,

    After an extensive discussion with my TA last night, I didn't do it. I have a good price right now, and she is pretty sure that if the better rates are offered, she can re-book us at the new rate even if we are within the 75 day period.

    For now the strategy remains "wait and see" and make the TA do all the hard work if a discount is offered.

    Based on info posted above by others, I have created the chart below to help visualize dinner rotation and attire.

    Day Night Rotation 1 Rotation 2 Rotation 3 Attire
    Fri 1 L A P Casual
    Sat 2 A P L Formal
    Sun 3 A P L Casual
    Mon 4 P L A Casual
    Tue 5 O O O Open
    Wed 6 A P L Pirate
    Thu 7 P L A Semi
    Fri 8 L A P Casual

    Note: the chart looks better in excel ;)

    I am leaning towards Rotation 3, but the family has not yet weighed in. Which do you prefer?

    OhioInlanders - love the chart! I was attempting to do something similar using a print out of "Your Cruise At a Glance" that was posted, but I like yours better. Much easier to see how it shakes out for the week on all 3 rotations.

    lovetotraveltx,

    For the January 18 sailing the Formal Night was the second night and the menu was Prince & Princess. Is that what you are asking?

    call me crazy , but i spent hours, :surfweb:, lookiing at what is left for inside cabins and there are 94 empty inside cabins and tons of ocean view.....havent made it to check balcony's yet.....so I am thinking now they might need to put those GT rates out there to fill the ship! JUST my opinion.....but the ship is pretty empty from looking at the deck plans and highlighting the available inside/oceanview rooms alone.

    I know it's kind of early but are we going to all meet at some point?

    Where is everyone that's driving to the port parking?

    i check the website daily in the morning and night as if i am booking the cruise and they will show up. Right now it's only for two people, but that is what I have....this is the 2nd time they have shown up for March 1st, they pulled them off and a few weeks later here they are again.
