How to Get a 7 Day Cruise for the Price of 5?

Hurricane Frances, that's how! My brother, sister in law, and two nieces are on a Carribbean cruise that was supposed to return today. However, given the current situation with Frances they'll be unable to dock in Tampa and are circling at sea until it's safe, which could be as late as Tuesday.

Those poor, poor things. Stuck on a Carnival cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico. Your heart just breaks.

Yes, it was Tuesday afternoon!

We arrived safe (and dry) in LA early Wednesday morning after circling around the Gulf of Mexico avoiding Frances!

NOTE TO SELF: Never take a cruise out of Florida during hurricane season -- there's a reason why the prices go down this time of year.
