I agree. I'm just trying to get over my window envy We'll see about upgrades at the terminal, but based on previous reports, we won't hold our breath.

DH loves the cave feel! He would agree with Mandygirl's husband, best night of sleep for him without any light. He is the reason we aren't rebooking OGT. He loves his inside cabin (I'm secretly hoping we get an upgrade)

Whoa, snap -- that is an excellent price!

Lol! I think we will do the same. It may sound silly but even for £200, we are happy to have a good inside cabin based on reviews of the rooms I have read. So don't really want to change it and risk getting a bad one...if there is such a thing!

Sorry to keep going on about this but if you haven't signed up or seen me ask about the pin trading event before - please sign up below if you are interested. So far there hasn't been much interest so I personally think it's not worth holding an event. It may be because of the great officer trading nights I have read about

Lol! I taught middle school, high school and junior college math and then got my principal certification when I finished grad school. Now I am a stay at home mom but tutoring via the Internet, so still getting to work with students while having little ones at home

I'm pretty sure we won't get upgraded

I keep reading about folks finding $400 tickets on Icelandic Air, so I wonder if we're just dumb. But this seems so much easier and the price doesn't seem that bad. But I love hearing that someone else thinks it's an excellent price. (I guess I need validation for outside )

We wanted a split bath so we needed a 10 and finding good reviews wasn't easy on them. We're going to be on the first deck and I'm a little but I'm trying to be

Event Organizers:

Please be sure to update any "first page posts" of part two thread as I suspect we will be moving over there tomorrow!

I will be sending the forum moderator a PM in the morning and posting link on this page so that this thread can be closed.

HAHAHA I'm so lame. I thought you meant for the WHOLE thing (cruise, airfare, transport). HAHAHAHAHAHAHASFJDOSUEIJRWLKNEFRLSJ

But the price (if you are saying from BCN to west coast) is okay. I would never pay the actual fare during the summer. Maybe in Feb. or Oct. or something....

Okay yeah, obviously my ADHD isn't helping me scan your post with any success haha. So yeah, I think $1174 to get all of that is worth it. Because you are actually paying for two OWs, and those are rarely a good price. I think the whole "buy a RT, don't use the second half" is the way to go, but you would still need a one way anyway.
