Default Princess dropped on New Years cruises

If you are on the Golden or Grand Princess for New Years, the prices have dropped
substantially. What you would have paid a year or six months ago when you booked would be high.

Inside cabins on both lines are now priced at $599 and outsides at $799. You should get your agent to demand a refund. Doesn't matter that you have already paid the balance on the cruise.

I'm not booked on this particular cruise, but in december on the golden. I booked in about February or March of this year. I called my travel agent to check and see if the prices have dropped and what they would do about it.

We ended up getting an upgrade, and a $200.00 refund.

So Princess SHOULD refund any difference.

Hi Hondu,
How does that work if you already paid in full?? This is the first I've heard of a price drop and we are on the Golden's New Years cruise.

Donna... since when do you take a post on a board as being factual... just cause it's posted? () It just ain't so, at least not now!

Ernie..
I was just about to say, I checked and as far as I could find out today, it ain't true. Who knows by Monday though. Right now the Christmas cruise is discounted.

I've zipped of a note to the TA handling the CruiseMates New Years Bash..he's busy cruising.. but sure when he gets back Monday he'll be able to check things out for us!

Regards,
Kuki

Hondu may be referring to regional rates.

I know that prices dropped drastically for my Thanksgiving cruise for FLORIDA travelers ONLY. It was a regional rate and unless you lived in that state - you did not qualify.

So Hondu may be right if he is living in the right place.

All right, don't tear me apart ErnieMCC. I did not manufacture the info. I guess that preferred agencies get the specials. Anybody can book for this price. It is not for Florida or a region. As I said, I got the email special today. I get them all the time from several agencies. Now, I cut and pasted the below info from the email. It just happens that the agency that sent it to me is Cruises-n-more and since they advertise daily on Cruisemates, I guess it is okay to mention that agency's name.

Hondu.. appears to be legit. Will check further to see if it applies to new bookings only, or we can maybe benefit.
Thanks.

Hondu... I really didn't mean to "tear you apart"... in fact my post was really just kidding Donna a bit... because of the CM cruise on the Golden. In today's market, anything is possible. Princess is still showing very little availability on that sailing, but who knows. Sorry if my humor was poorly directed!
