Default Best Price on Princess Cruises

We are frequent travelers on the Princess line but have never felt confident that we have engaged the right agency for our bookings.

Each web site offers different pricing and there appears to be no sure fire way to guarantee that we have seen the 'best' prices for the best cabins.

Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated. We are fans only of the big ships, i.e., Grand, Golden, and hopefully, in the future, the Diamond.

Phil and Sheri

There is no guarantee of "Best price" anywhere. Sometimes, what you get for a lower fare, you may sacrifice in service. Find a price that is fair, an agency that is reputable and don't worry that you are getting the best "deal" out there. Sometimes deals aren't such good deals after all.

There is a general price that cabins are often at from the cruiseline. Any prices below that price are usually a result of the travel agent refunded part of their commission back to the client in the form of a reduced fare. Can you get TAs into a price war over you? Yes. Will that guarantee you good service? No. I'd rather have a TA that gives me a fair price upfront and doesn't play games. If that means paying a little more because I don't play the agents against each other, then so be it.

Check out this message thread from the cruisecritic message board about a TA that is a Princess expert.

I don't want to be more discriptive in this post so it will remain on the board, just go look for yourself.

Mine too! Best price I was able to find, and I searched constantly. Great, great service as well.

Good to hear your support. I have decided to book with her for March 2004 on the Grand.

Maybe I missed something. I read all those raves but didn't get her website.
