You know what they say. If it's too good to be true, it probably is, but is it?
It's a 10 night repositioning trip of the Grandeur of the Seas, from Harwich to Boston next September (9/4/03), and the prices are just boggling. Sure, there are 5 sea days out of ten, but the inside cabins are 680! For ten nights! Just picking up after me every day is worth more than that.
My last cruise friend/neighbor has already given it the thumbs way up for a balcony cabin, just $1120.
Don't let anybody talk you out of booking a cruise, anytime ,anywhere. Why so cheap?
That's a big ship and a whole lot of bunks to fill up at an odd time of the year. Do keep in mind, that you are going to book a trans Atlantic crossing at the height of the Atlantic hurricane season. Odds are in your favor that there will be no problem, but you can
encounter a good storm.
Enjoy your cruise , can't stay home for $68 dollars a day.
You can usually get great pricing on repositioning cruises. We did one in 2001 from Ensenada to Seattle (stopping in San Francisco and Victoria Bristish Columbia) on Norwegian -- got a balcony cabin for 6 nights for $412 (a stupendous deal).
You can usually find the repositioning cruises when the ships are changing routes for the season (April and May they head to Alaska on the West Coast).
The one warning I would say is to factor in the air fare to see how great a deal it is. Sometimes, you can take a normal round-trip cruise for similar money. (I also hate to fly, so I figure that in too)
The one other thing is that we feel that when we have more sea days,a balcony becomes more of a must-have. A) because I smoke, and B) because we seem to hang out in the cabin more)
