Default How full is the ship

Hi Everyone,

I'm debating on waiting to the last minute to book a cruise. Is there a way to find out how many rooms are left without calling the cruiseline direct ? When you call the cruiseline you wonder if what they are telling is accurate or are they trying to get you to book with them. Thanks for your help.

John

Between this thread and email, I've now expalined it 10 times. I've even composed a notepad document to cut and paste the answer.

Does anyone want to be #11?

John,

Waiting until the last few days to book a cruise is a risk especially if you have to fly to the
port the ship sails from. What I have done in the past is book everything as early as you can and call the cruise line every now and then and the cruise line will give you that rate if it does drop. I have gotten hundreds back if the rate drops but that has been in the past. If you call the cruise line they will tell you how many cabins are left for that sailing date.

Sorry, brim. I had two requests for 12. You are 14. Who wants the third hand, by old Aztec count?

Hi Gary,

Thanks for your advice. We decided to book this week and keep an eye out for a price change. Im curious to see if it goes up or down and what the cruiseline is willing to do for us if it does go down.

I see that I'm not alone on my question -how full is the ship . Steve's gave really good advice, I've tried his method and it does work. Thanks Steve!

Happy sailing everyone!
John

Thanks for the info Steve. I do wonder though whether this is just showing those cabins allocated to that booker. Seems like you always see 9 -11 rooms per deck. Just a thought.

You might be right, Joe. It may be allocated by block to a particular agent. I wonder if it work at other sites, showing other cabins. HMMMM.
