I booked our cruise (for January 2004) yesterday through DU. When Bob & Donna answered a few questions I had, they suggested I may want to book my own airfare, as I want to leave at a specific time and want a non-stop flight. They gave me a price of +$400 from PVD to MCO, but I don't know which airline etc, until 30-60 days before. I think I may have a much better chance of getting a lower price and the exact flight if I do it myself. Has anyone else done this too? We usually take the 7:25 a.m. Delta flight out of PVD, which gets us into MCO around 10:15 a.m., I think that would be in plenty of time to transfer to Port Canaveral.... I wouldn't want to take the chance of getting a flight that would have to change planes somewhere and/or getting delayed, especially in January and coming from a snowy state!! But if I book it myself and we're delayed because of who knows what, would DCL wait for us???? Of course, maybe we could always fly down the day before the cruise and stay at an airport hotel??? How would I get the DCL bus then?? just some nervous questions!! Thanks everyone for your help! J.
