  • Accepted / Rejected

General Comments (offer details, etc.)  I am throwing in the offer details I was given.  Those are what I would have paid to get those classes to begin with.  Also the cabins offered were at the bow or stern of the ship.  I have a mid ship veranda.  Perfectly happy with it.  No need to move.  I would have tried to upgrade if it would have worked to my advantage.  Bidding to get an upgrade is silly. Especially the price for a minimum bid is the the amount more to get those classes when originally booking.  No deals to be had here.

I originally placed the Tracker in the thread initiated by CruisingChick on April 23, 2018.  However, the tracker gets lost amongst all the many questions/comments (understandably).  Thus, I have decided to create a single thread for tracking purposes only (filtering out everything else).  

The purpose of this thread is strictly for compiling information into a spreadsheet.   I will be running this tracker for ~ 6 months to see if any interesting trends come about and/or for general information purposes.  Will reevaluate its usefulness thereafter. 

IF you wish to participate, answer the following questions as best as you can and I will transfer the info to the Tracker. 
Please do not ask questions here (redirect your questions/comments to the CruisingChick thread of April 2018).
