Default Good deal or not?

Hi a Carnival rep quoted me a rate of 403.00 pp for a 4 day cruise to the bahamas in an ocean view room on the upper deck in Feb. Does this sound like a good deal or would you shop around some more?

Yep, the key is WHEN? If it's in June-July-August, it probably is a good deal, (once again,,,if it's all inclusive ie: port taxes, fed taxes, and fuel surcharge included) if it's in Sept through December, then I'd absolutely look around some more. Give us more details on what ship, when, and what's included.

It's the Fascination in Feb. That does not include any taxes or anything else. Where would y'all recomend to look for a reputable deal? I've never done this in my life and I'm kind of lost Thanks for your help.

There are many excellent cruise sellers that advertise on this website.
VacationsToGo is one of them. $100 per day before taxes/fuel for a Bahamas cruise in Feb is not a good deal. Keep looking. 8)

I'd recommend that you log onto "Cruisecompete.com" and list exactly what you want. ie: date, ship, type of cabin. This is IMO a GREAT site, and you'll find out exactly what this cruise should sell for, as there will be multiple TA's bidding for your business. Chances are, you'll find a price that you can't resist, but if not, at least you'll know if you're getting a good deal or not. At that point, you can book with whichever agent quoted you the best price, or go back to your original agent, and book, knowing that it's a good deal. Have a GREAT cruise!
