Default Buycruises.com

Hi - We're going to be booking the Summit for next winter. Has anyone used buycruises.com? We've booked our other cruises, RCCL and Princess through Cruisesonly but are ready for a change. Thanks.

I haven't used buycruises.com but 2 months ago I booked thru travelocity.com and got a skysuite for 1750 per person on Mercury, haven't seen it that good since. I also haven't found that price anywhere else.

I have used and highly recommend them. I first heard about BuyCruises through a friend and have booked a total of 6 cruises with them since 2002. Never a problem.

I haven't ever used Buycruises.com either, but to be honest, Travelocity hasn't impressed me with their pricing in some time. Seems there's very little difference in their pricing to rack rates.

Glenn - Wow! 347 days to go. Nobody can say you wait for the last minute. Sounds like you're going about the same time we're looking to go.

We have booked with BuyCruises.com for two cruises & have been very satisfied with their customer service & prices. I highly recommend them. We used their site to price the trip, but called them directly to book.

I have used Buycruises for my last 3 cruises and have 2 upcoming ones, also booked with them. I highly recommend them - make sure to call and speak with an agent, they are all very pleasant and helpful.

Used them last year on a last minute cruise to Bermuda. Couldn't bear their prices and service. We tried this time with a cruise to Hawaii and our travel agent in NJ beat their prices. So shop around.

Have used BuyCruises.com twice, and more than happy with their service and prices. Got a Royal Suite on the Zenith next March for a song, with Suzanne's help.
See you onboard Glenn

Cruisecrazy;

Sorry but you have me confused with someone else. I am intrigued, what do you mean by "Dead Site"? I believe that BuyCruises does sell to the Canadian market.

I have never used them but I just looked at their prices and Cruise Value Center beats them big time. Try it.

I just tried Cruise Value Center...although I have never heard of it before...but they don't show CC or 1A, 1B cabins. I guess if I call an agent I could get prices for those cabins. Anybody else ever use them???

I booked again with BuyCruises earlier this week and just this morning gave my agent's number to my boss and within a couple hours, she was back at my desk with her confirmation. Just like I promised her, they beat all her online quotes when it came to the total price. (Whew!)

No, I don't work for them or any cruise related business. However, some may say I have a bit of a brown nose today! <g>

I'm actually a banker who budgets and knows great services and prices when I seem them. The key though is to find an agent/agency you like and are comfortable with.

I've done a little research and value cruises does not accept any coupons and their prices as final. My cruise agent at Buycruises will make any adjustments with coupons and if the cruise fare is reduced, he will make those adjustments as well, at no fee. Better to be on a ship than on a subway right now
