Cruise Bargain Success !!!

Our first cruise booked via Cruise Miles was for Valentines Day 2012 and, given the option, we’d do it all again – as a matter of fact, we already have our next 4 CM cruises booked. I watched the ads on e-bay for well over a year and did pretty extensive internet investigating before purchasing my first voucher. Being a cynic at heart I worried up until the day I received the confirmation of my first Cruise Miles cruise which included the cruise line's booking number. Having cruised for many years and paying the standard cruise line rates, I could not believe that we were going to be sailing for less than a third of what others were paying for the same cruise ship, date, and cabin type.
When we stepped aboard the ship, the Carnival Elation, it was the confirmation that the value we were receiving from the CruiseMiles program was real. As far as the cruise line and it's staff were concerned, there was no difference between us and any full-fare-paying passenger on board. The staff onboard had no idea that we were Cruise Miles clients and it didn't matter to them - they treated us like royalty!
For this cruise we had a group of 20+ Cruise Milers and, thanks to Richard’s generosity we were able to have a get-together/cocktail party at the Pool Bar on the first sea day. Besides keeping busy clapping each other on the back for having the good luck and sense to find Cruise Miles, we were able to meet a new group of friends. It was great running into each other during the rest of the cruise. A great, fun group of folks!
Overall - this was a great cruise and we'd do it again in a minute!
