Priority wait listers may hear more news this month

It's been a LONG time since we've heard anything on the wait list, hasn't it? Here is a tiny morsel of news, posted on ning by Kathrin:
"We will start to clear some of the priority wait list the end of this month. After they are all cleared, we will start with the regular wait list.

Thanks and have a great day,
Jeannie Gearhart | Office Manager"
I mentioned in my last post that I had only heard of two people in the last month or so who had gotten placed from the actual waitlist. I'm sure there are more, but it definitely seems like the vast majority of those who cancel are finding replacements on their own. (As we've seen, that comes with its own problems.) Maybe that will change at the end of the month.

Also, the last two payments have been pretty reasonable. The big payment for many people will come April 1. Think of how many rooms were over $1500. That means without an intermediate payment many cruisers will owe $800, some even $1200. And, at that time, people will really have to start booking flights and making final arrangements. Cancelations will keep coming.

So what haven't I heard? Have others from the wait list gotten calls? And on another note, have any roommates been matched yet? Rose Tours had said November for that.


  1. I'm in the roomie match program, and I have not been matched yet. When I asked when I'd find out info about my roomie, Barbara from RT said, "Were hoping within the next couple of months if not sooner. We will be in touch. Thank you."

  2. Thanks for always keeping us up to date with this info. I'm still on PWL and look forward to getting a room on the cruise to meet so many I've chatted with.

  3. Thank Gill for that note. I'm in the match program and would like to find out sooner rather than later about my roomie.

  4. I'm in match program as word yet!
