    Well the idea is great. But the price is scary. I paid that much for a 7 night cruise this past year. The price may be for the event to, but if so that is very high... I think. I wish there were more ABC stars !!!! Anyway, if your rich, have fun !!!!

    I think it is a great idea and I'm sure it is going to be lots of fun I wish the soaps stars were around my age group as for sure I 'll be the first one to book,the price is right and Carnvival cruise line is fun to be on as I have been a couple of cruises on Carnival and they were great have fun it's reat to be young and enjoy your self! good luck I'm sure it is going to be a sell off.Amc fan for the last 32 years.

    Hi crazysoapfan!

    The price is actually really good, because of what comes in the package, dinner and events included. Plus you get to spend a vacation with all these soap stars!! It's actually a sweet deal!

    I checked it out and if you save $100 per month, starting this month, you can probably swing it and have extra $ to spend! Plus you'd have to do the deposit first. Still, if someone is already looking for a good vacation, even without soap stars, it would be a good time.... with them just makes for more fun times!

    Pink Butterfly, I hope you let us know how the cruise goes!!!

    Appreciate all the thoughts here,BUT lets look at couple of things here !!!! I thought this was a great idea, until I called Carnival to check prices, I was told the price was almost double for people wanting to book in this group. I asked why, they said that the people hosting this pick the price. But everyone has the same amenities such as dining, seeing these stars in the general public areas etc. Just not the event itself. I have been going to meet/greets over many years, I have never been asked to pay $300.00 for an event, not even SSW ! While seeing 10 stars sounds good, I don't watch all these shows so all 10 isn't that big of a deal. I wish these people would get realisic on prices and maybe we could go. Oh, more thing Carnival lets you cancel without penalties up to 60 days before cruise then they charge a fee after that, why are they not giving refunds ?? It doesn't matter how many months you save if you are paying double what everyone else pays. This just doesn't add up.

    As long as you are young at heart pink buterfly it will be a good time- anyway - those soap stars are not that young.

    Posted by pink buterfly at Monday, January 22 2007 06:17 AM

    Thanks Floraslinda,I'm trying to encourage a couple of my friends so we can go and have a blast! Yes Chrissi I will let you know how the cruise goes if I will manage to go! Tanjalovessoaps,It's nice to shop around and get cheaper prices but may be the once that don't book with the soapscruise they won't get all the benefits that the soap cruises are offering(I think any way!)

    I think this would be a trip of the lifetime. I have never been on a cruise or anything like that. Unfortantly I cannot afford anything like this.My nedical bills take almost all we have plus our regular bills. I hope all that gets to go has a time of thier life. Have fun and enjoy the cruise of a lifetime.

    I booked the cruise with my two daughters...we were told we are among the first 100 people to book, so we will have breakfast with the stars. We are very excited!

    Ornament Lady, I hope you'll give an exclusive when you get home!

    The price reflects what you get. I've posted an update on all of the fantastic things you get to do and see. It's well worth it, I assure everyone.
