Our travel agent also suggested we either pay for some extra holds or if we had people who wanted to put their deposit down right away like we did. In the end we took the gamble and it worked out for us. We were at a mega resort though with over 1000 rooms. It did sell out though near the end!
Hahha although I say I'm shy, I am a Leo and would love the onboard announcement!! Someone will buy you a drink maybe

We also paid extra to hold more rooms/seats. I think it was $500 for 5 extra rooms/10 extra seats. The entire amount was applicable to our trip, whether or not we ended up using the extra rooms/seats, so it wasn't a gamble. In the end, I think we used an extra room or two and most of the seats.
I also LOVE spreadsheets. I have them for the guest list, budget, boat excursion companies, photographer options, etc., etc.
@calgarybride2015 & @vancouverpetunia i posted on here asking whether we should put down the extra money and if i remember correctly, no one else had! nice to hear you both did and that it worked out. perhaps ours was applicable to our trip whether we used the rooms or not but my understanding was we used it or lost it...BUT there have been many discrepancies with our TA so she likely didn't say and i likely didn't ask the right questions.
i am trying to post what i would have done differently with each topic because how is a girl to know when she has never planned a wedding let alone a DW before?
good point about the free drinks - maybe having the announcement IS worth it haha
