Time NOW to jump in and see Europe with a GREAT CruiseMates group!
There are other promotions, like past guest, military etc. that can bring even those lower prices further down. Just check with Nancy!
Carnival group seems to be having a sale across certain brands.
FYI only a major TA is offering inside cabin on your group cruise (for over55s) for $999. It may even come with OBC.
I know, I know it is not exactlty the same deal but maybe you could use that info to get the prices lower - just a thought.
Price reduction doesn't influence me one jot - it is Wimbledon fortnight and that comes first.
Annie.. as I mentioned there are other promotions.. one is promo for European repeat cruisers (I believe) that comes with a $300 onboard credit as well, as a lower price.
Not uncommon for the cruise lines to offer "regional discounts" for sailings they want to fill, at lesser prices. They do it all the time in North America as well, if their model shows the ship won't be sailing full.
