Default I need some help on cruise-related questions

I had a question about whether there is a system where you can put in a price that you want to pay for a cruise and then wait for the price to hit that level. It would sort of be like puts and calls in the stock market.

When I was on a cruise was a situation where a cruise group packager came up with a price for the cruise package that included airfare that was cheaper than the rate I paid. I'm not griping but is there a list of these packagers available? I don't know if that is the correct term for these packagers.

I need a visa to go on a cruise to Australia. Where do I get it?

I guess you would be talking about maybe a cruise auction.

I do not know of any automatic system that will buy you a cruise if it reaches a certain price - but I think a travel agent might just make a note that you want a certain cruise at a certain price and let you know if he/she sees it hit that price.

I do think you need a visa to visit Australia, but I believe you can get them online...

Try this....

Let me google that for you

My best advice is work with a reputable travel agent, preferably a Cruise Specialist, and let them help you find the right cruise based on you requirements, lifestyle, and budget. Then make your plans accordingly - no hassle, no stress, no doubt, no indecisiveness, no uncertainty, and no unknown factors. Makes for a much nicer and enjoyable vacation.
