Default Is it cheaper to book in the US or the UK?

Does anybody know if it is generally cheaper to book a cruise in the US or in the Uk?

Beka.. I am not familiar with UK prices at all, but I can tell you I almost find cheaper pricing booking in the US than here in Canada. ... though on very rare occassion I have found better pricing here.

I would definately get some online quotes when you're considering your next cruise and compare it to the price you're getting there.

I compared identical category 1A cabins on the same sailing of the Millennium (12/14)on Celebrity's website.

If you put your country of origin as the U.S., the price is quoted as $1030.00 per person, or 633.68 pounds sterling.

If you put your country of origin as the U.K., the price is quoted as 649 pounds sterling, or roughly $1055.13 U.S.

The difference is not very great, and if I were you I would compare prices from travel agents on both sides of the pond to try to find the best deal.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Remember to figure in costs for travel to the ship or is that included. Also if you want to stay an extra day or two before or after the cruise.
