I'm taking my first CC in March and now dh and I are talking about booking another for next July to celebrate our 25th anniversary. MUCH rather do this than a party!
Anyway, I was wondering about a couple of things:
1. Would it be to our advantage to book the next one while we're on the first cruise?
2. What kind of a discount do you get for doing that (if any)?
3. What kind of a discount do you get for being a past cruiser (which we will be by then)?
4. Should I just wait and book it after our cruise with our TA?
I've been checking prices for the cruise that we're looking at (Legend out of NY on July 14/07) and after taking a summer holiday this year and now the cruise with the teen in March, we want to be able to keep our cost as low as we can and yet have a great holiday. That's why we thought of a cruise out of NY (we can drive there in 10.5 hr. from Ontario).
Thank you Kuki. This information really helps me a lot. I'll shop for prices now and take advantage of early bookings or better cabin selection. That was one of my concerns of waiting. Already, believe it or not, the selection for the cabins for next July are getting a little limited.
You may want to consider (if you are close to the Toronto/Niagara area)
flying from Buffalo to New york. Considering the cost of fuel and possibly a pre cruise hotel, parking etc flying may be cheaper. Jet Blue usually has some great fares as does Continental. Usually around $150 U.S per person round trip.
