Default In trouble???

At the moment P&O UK are drastically reducing prices, when I say ''drastically'' I mean 50/60% & more off the prices, this can be THOUSANDS per couple, they want payment with booking & no refunds. Even Cunard are doing transatlantic crossings with a return flight to the UK for 499!! That is 7 nights on say the QM2, airport transfers & a flight home for far less than a week in a caravan in the UK.

If this works, look at the "Getaway" prices.

I'm not sure what is going on at Carnival Corporation and their European sailings but I'm seeing an across the board reduction.

The Cruisemates Carnival Breeze cruise has been drastically cut. It's great news for people looking for a last minute European cruise but somewhat bothering news for those who have already made final payment.

I'm thinking that European bookings are not what they expected.

Oh well: Maybe it will be less crowded for me.

Take care,
Mike

Default European Sailings Discounted

IMHO - too many vessels doing the same old itineraries. None of these great bargains tempt me at all because I have already seen and done it several times.

Plus who wants to cruise in the Med in the summer if they can avoid it.

You also have to remember that there are a few major events in Europe happening this summer.

JTD is correct re Cunard - that just does not make sense - now that may tempt me one day but I restrict my summer vacations to 1 week because I don't want to clash with Wimbledon etc
