I am asking because we are planning on taking a cruise sometime in 2011. I say sometime because DH is military and we want to take a cruise whenever he gets back from deployment, but we are unsure of when he will get back and when he can take leave. I know that we will get travel insurance if we book a cruise, but we might not know until a couple of days before we take the cruise. Could I book a cruise at the last minute? I also notice that there are some great deals if you wait until last minute, anyone have success doing this? Sorry I am a first time cruiser and we are so excited to take a Disney cruise. I am new to the boards and have been lurking and learning so much from the guides on this site. I am sure I will have a ton more questions as 2011 is a long time away. Oh, would you rather take a 7 day Western Carribean or a 4 day bahama on the Dream? ( I know the dream has not come out yet) TIA!!
