I haven't used them - I had a look at some reviewer opinions on epinions & decided too many people were dissatisfied. Just my decision.

Let us know what you decide!

I would not use them and do not recommend anyone use any auction to purchase a cruise.

24 cruises and counting!

It seems to me that the selling prices are normally above what one can find otherwise thru a TA or on the Internet.

However, we have purchased rent-time at timeshares, and have been very pleased with what we got for the money -- a week in Palm Springs on the golf course in a 1 bedroom condo for $211.

Well, we have used skyauction.com for a couple of cruises, once last March for the Victory. We have always been pleased with them. We also used them for our Halloween cruise on the Mariner of the Seas later on this year. They have always responded to any questions that I have and, if you do it right, you can get a fantastic price. Just be aware of all the info listed like the port taxes, etc. jack

we used them last year for a cruise in alaska and this year we will sail on the Splendour thanks to skyauction. My husband and I always check them because you never know when a great deal is before you. Just beware of all the cost. But Skyauction has done what they advertised and that's all I expect.
