    I notice it says you Live in California.. That hurts you slightly because airfare must be a killer.. I am only 32 years old BUT I live in Ft. Lauderdale about 15 min from Port Everglades, 30 minutes from Miami, and 3 hours from port Canaveral. Also I am self employed and can do work on any cruise ship that has good internet. I also really enjoy gambling and because of this I get offers for comped cruises all the time and those are the ones I choose to go on. Because of the combination of offers sent to me, the fact that I live so close to ports and don't have to pay for airfare, and that I am self employed and can go whenever I want I go on about 8 cruises a year. I also LOVE cruising. it is my #1 passion in life so to me I have made it super important. The only other trips I take are to Vegas and Disneyworld. So for me I can use all my spare vacation money to mainly focus on cruising.. Also having children is not in the cards for me so I have a lot more disposable income than other people do.. In short I think you will find there really is no one magic way to be a dedicated cruiser you just have to go with what your given and make it work for you. But I am happy that we have a new cruising convert on these boards.. Symphony is a fantastic ship you will love her!!!

    AGSLC5 got a reaction from ChessE4 in Miami Drink Tax?   
    would the other cruise line you are referring to happen to be NCL? if so what they do is ridiculous and I don't know how they get away with it.. There is no law that says they have to charge tax.. Not only that the sales tax in Miami doesn't even match what they charge.. They basically just wanted a way to get extra money out of people. Its quite annoying.. If your not talking about NCL sorry for the rant lol... But I have been on 45 Royal cruises and they never do this so don't worry about it..

    Also, I know your frustrated because you thought you had a great deal.. BUT on some level you should of known this deal was too good to be true.. That week that you picked is thanksgiving in the US.. I realize your not from America so maybe you didn't realize but holidays always cost a premium so there is no way they would only charge you what they first quoted.. I know that doesn't make you feel better and your still frustrated but I am not sure what else to say.

    actually I live in ft. Lauderdale.. They changed the tax in broward county to 7% back in January.. Is it possible the receipt you saw was for someone who Didn't have a drink package and was just buying a drink? If so that's the reason for the Tax... The OP was referring to if you have a drink package.. If not then I don't know why they charged tax..

    AGSLC5 got a reaction from 12thman in Online booking vs. Agencies   
    That is exactly right.. Its very frustrating for me. I am a small agent who cant compete with big guys like vacations to go or cruises.com.. They buy up blocks of cabins when itineraries are first released and that's how they give people deals.. Now I have a host agency that buys some but they don't buy it for every sailing so its a crap shoot on whether I can actually save people money.. What I can do is offer really good customer service and OBC.. But plenty of times I lose out to big guys. Im not mad about it. its business and I understand but yes you now know how the big guys get deals lol.

    Their agency most likely had block group space available.. This is when agencies buy up a bunch of rooms at a discount price and "freeze" the price so it won't go higher.. I am a travel agent and my host agency does this all the time.. I am going on a family cruise in December and was able to save my family $3000 per cabin on celebrity by booking them into the group space.. So to answer your question it is very possible you just need to find out from the travel agency if that includes all taxes fees and costs..

    I envy you so much to be located near the port! I heard some news about royal caribbean adding ports to California but at the moment there is majority Carnival. Never tried carnival or any cruise ships for that matter but i'm "loyal to royal"
    Emphasis on slightly for airfare, since it's me and my S/O round trip for the both of us is quite hefty. Close to $1,000 if not more for the both of us round trip.
    Also want to get there the night before in case of any hiccups so we booked a stay in a hotel nearby.
    But we work with the cards we're dealt and as long as we enjoy the journey/cruise it's all that matters.
    I've noticed so far not one person has the same lifestyle for their cruising habits which is amazing.
    I get a lot of information and feedback on how to make it work with different scenarios.

    I kind of agree with you.  I've had a couple of great desserts but in general, they aren't always worth the calories.
