    Hi Titus!

    Thanks for all your hard work on this website. It did save me a few $$ on my upcoming TA in October. Phenomenal idea to do this site. I check in regularly to see what's going. These forums will give me another reason. I'm a seasoned cruiser with well over 30 under my belt, but you can never sail enough. Looking forward to the new forums.

    Hi Lulley and thanks for the nice comments! Your feedback is important, so don't hesitate to post any question, suggestion, problem you might have. I love cruising as well, having been on only 3 cruises so far: 1 with Costa, 2 with Celebrity (my favorite so far) on their newest ships Equinox and Eclipse. I look forward to try out a relatively unknown upscale french cruise line [Compagnie du Ponant](http://www.ponant.com). They just launched two very nice-looking units: Boreal and Austral. ![austral](http://www.ponant.com/var/ezflow_site/storage/images/nos-navires/l-austral/1564-4-fre-FR/L-Austral_bandeau_fiche_navire.jpg)

    I have to agree with Lulley766. I first heard of this sight a few days ago on Cruise Critic and decided to check it out. The very next morning I contacted my TA and told him that the cruise I had booked had reduced the price of a balcony cabin down to what I had paid for an inside. We never book balcony as we don't care if we can see out or not but when it is the same price we would jump at it. Now my balcony is on the same deck and a few doors down from what I had. Thanks Titus.

    Hi blackie50, It's great that you are getting a balcony with a little help from CF! Cruise pricing is so byzantine and variable that some tools are practically required to navigate it. What cruise are you booked on?

    I'm on the Millennium doing a Panama Canal on 9/27. When I saw the balcony price I went on Celebrity website and noticed because I am over 55 the discount brought it down to the same price I had paid for the inside. We prefer a high deck midship cabin and realize we pay a premium for it but we never choose balcony because we don't spend enough time in the room to warrant the extra cost. This time, thanks to your website, we pay the same and have an extra door.
