How long did it take you to get responses to your initial inquiries to travel agents? I emailed LaurieLee in July, she said she'd get back to me the following week, and has not responded since, even to confirm if she is receiving my messages. I emailed her again Sept 30 and Oct 6th with no response. I know she's busy, but I think 3 months is a little excessive.
I emailed a couple local travel agents on Sept 30 as well, and one of them keeps trying to convince me to go with the Grand Sunset Princess instead, and went so far as to send me quotes for them instead, and the other one sent me an email on Oct 7 just to say she was still working on it (which I really appreciate after LaurieLee disappeared on me!).
It seems like the airlines haven't released their packages for next year yet and that's what the holdup is, and I realize that a wedding next fall isn't a very high priority and I'm trying to be patient, but I'm going insane! I just want to get the dates locked in so that I don't feel like I'm in a holding pattern anymore, but I can't book the wedding date until I know what days the flights are on so I meet the requirements for the number of days spent there before the ceremony.
I've contacted Air Canada vacations directly, they've been a little more responsive, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to get some sort of information soon!
I think I just needed to rant a little bit.
