For several years running you would have done yourself a favor if you would have waited to book your cruise until a month or so before departure, when rates would most likely be lowest and you'd almost be guaranteed a decent cabin even just a week or two before sailing. Today it's a different story.
Read on for the latest industry information about onboard educational opportunities, ships with clean bills of health, new fly and park programs, lesbian cruises and more.

KayR: "Has anyone cruised on the Saga Rose? Received an interesting brochure from them and do fit the senior age group they cater too. Saga is British company -- how are Americans welcomed? What is their smoking policy and do they enforce it? How are food, service, cabins, etc? Thanks for your input."
From Mirlou: "We are looking at booking a balcony cabin on Carnival. Has anyone booked a cruise cabin on a guarantee? Did you get a good deal? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated."
From Jacques LeMans: "We are having a frustrating, exhausting, and exasperating experience with iCruise.com. We'll never book with them again. Does anyone have tips on how to work with them? We paid $4,200 for a cruise, bought travel insurance, then my father-in-law got terminally ill and couldn't go. Now they have been refusing to pay their part of the refund. I can never get a hold of a live person in customer service, they don't return emails and voicemails. Once we talked to Debbie Donovan, a manager, and she actually yelled at us and hung up on us."
From RNE: "Cruisesonly.com has the following claim on its site. 'Booking airfare with your cruise package provides two important advantages: In the event of a flight delay or cancellation, the airline is responsible for your transportation to the next port of call.' Is this true?
From Hellena Lipton: "We are trying to choose between two cruises: one does the Inside Passage and the other goes into Glacier Bay. We care more about seeing wildlife than the ports of call. Is it correct that one sees more whales, birds, seals, etc. in Glacier Bay? We would really like the Inside Passage, believing it to be more scenic, but don't want to miss the wildlife."
