I just got off the phone with Cunard concerning the issue of taking partial cruises (i.e. only staying on board 4 days out of a 6 day cruise). This is possible but they will not give you a discount. You must pay the full brochure rate! I have heard that there is a select group of independent travel agents that belong to Cunard's "Inner Circle". These agents do significant business for Cunard and get the best rates in the system. Cunard would not give me a referal for obvious reasons (they want me to pay the brochure rate). Does anyone out there know where I can find a list of these Inner Circle agents? I really don't think it is fair that I have to pay full price just because I can only travel 4 days of a 6 day cruise. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!
