But the question still remains about last minute deals. If you called NCL on a thursday night for a ship sailing out Saturday - I would think the deals are pretty good. Why wouldn't they be?
Paul, I think you are right. Whatever the break-off I would gather NCL or any line would be more than happy to work a deal.. I do know one thing, Princess hasn't done the embarkation deals like in the '"olden days" for about 10 years. When I first went into the business I called them cause a client asked me if they could just show up at the port. This was way before 9/11. I was told they hadn't done that for years. I don't know why...
