Wait list calls trickling in

It's been some time since we've heard of wait list calls, but a few lucky cruisers have gotten the news this week. We should be in the 2450s now.

The last call went to Jen, and she got some good info out of Rose Tours during her call.
"I'm WL#2450. Got a call yesterday & called back this AM. I was offered 6C for $1199 or 6D for $1249, and took 6D! The cabins are exactly the same, one was deck 4 the other deck 5 so we took he 5th deck. Pricing seems to be the same as what they were before, I know some people speculated about same pricing for all wait list rooms and/or higher pricing from before. Doesn't seem to be the case though. When I called she said she only had these two options because of cancellations. We changed cc info and she said she'd let us know if there were any problems. Rumors of automatic cancellations are totally bogus. She said the only time that's happened is if they couldn't reach someone for a couple of months."
I hadn't heard rumors of automatic cancellations, but they must have been out there.

From waitlister #2449 I heard confirmation that $700 is due right away, with the remainder of the balance to be paid on April 1. Keep in mind also that these room prices Jen mentions do not include the $249 in fees and taxes that is added on to the total.

Will keep you posted if I hear of more calls.

Completely unrelated: Our DVD Twitter viewing party has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 27. DVDs have already started to reach Japan and New Zealand, so we are feeling good about everyone having their orders in 10 days. Hope you can join us!
