Well it looks like I'm going to Tahiti. I booked the CruiseMates, February Tahiti cruise on Monday the 16th of October. I thought the rate for a Cat C cabin was great. That night I came home to review my email and lo and behold I see the same cruise offered by Renaissance for less.
I contacted Catherine who is the T/A for mytravelco.com who is coordinating the CruiseMates cruise and she informed me that I will receive the discounted rate!!!
So it looks like this is really a win win situation. I get to cruise one of the most beautiful parts of the world with the CruiseMates group and I get to do so at an unbelievable price.
I noticed today that the cruise information has been updated on CruiseMates and is reflecting the new, really low, prices.
French Polynesia is really paradise. Tahiti itself isn't much to sing about, dirty and commercial, but BoraBora and Moorea are heaven, so incredibly beautiful. I cruised there on Windstar many years ago. You will love it. Have a fabulous cruise.
I'm also glad I got the reduction but I am even more glad that everyone is getting it.
With these prices I think this will be CruiseMates sellout. I have traveled Ren on the R2 and we had a great time. Lovely ship, nice sized and appointed cabins, and pretty good food.
Now back to packing. Leaving Saturday for the Norwegian Sky.
Great deal all around, I know you were concerned about it all yesterday, glad it worked out so well. In case you are busy packing tonight, just want to wish you
a fun, safe cruise, Bon Voyage!
