Default bestpricecruises.com anyone?

Hello there,

Has anyone used www.bestpricecruises.com for online booking? And, if you have, what have been your experiences? I've seen their quotes and they seem to beat the prices of many other online travel agents.

Thanks in advance.

We used them for our upcoming March 14th cruise. They too beat all other online TA's and even our local TA said he couldn't beat their price!

I can't say how good they are as of yet cause we haven't received our cruise docs and haven't gone but the booking was easy and I even called them when I didn't get the confirmation and they sent me another one via email. I've heard others talk about them and say they are good to deal with.

In almost all cases the larger agencies like BestPrices can get you good to great pricing and the degree of satisfaction you get is due to whoever the individual you get assigned to you as an agent. As I have said all the time, no one agency will always give you the best deal, price, satisfaction, etc. It pays to shop around and the more information you have the beeter off you are.

Thanks for your responses!

I've been wanting to book a cruise with them but wasn't sure since I've never used them or heard from anyone who used them before. I also noticed that this page has a link to their website. Looks like I'll be booking with them very soon!

Thanks again,

I was curious and checked the price of my upcoming cruise on the Explorer of the Seas on bestpricecruises.com to my TA's amount and my TA's price was $200 less than the online price.

All my cruises with my TA have been lower than the online prices.

I'm wondering if the cruises are cheaper in Miami? This is where my agent is and I also live here.

That may be so, But I use an online agency but do not book online and when you call them the price has always been lower than their online price, because the online price does not reflect all the current specials available, you get that from calling.
Actually I book first with the cruiseline to get the cabin and assitance I need then I transfer my booking to the discount agency and get the best price.

So the message here is don't assume the online price is the cheapest price an agency is offering.

I use buycruises.com but I agree that Bestpricecruises also has excellant prices and service.

Nan, did you make your final payment and then got the reduction? I had problems with bestprice as the price had gone done right after I made the final payment. I did not care but thought I would try and at least for a ship credit. My agent would never get back to me after calling her many times so I was not happy. Don't get me wrong, I paid the price I was willing to pay and got a good price but it was the lack of service that I did not like.

nushnakka,

It must have been the agent. We used BestPriceCruises.com. I called for reduced prices well after our final payment (about a week before we traveled) and we received $800 in shipboard credits when we boarded the ship. The agent was very helpful any time I called or e-mailed her.
