Trying to book a cabin for NEXT July out of NY. Anyone else experiencing difficulty booking a quad cabin next year? Sounds crazy I know...but this is what I am being told by several agents and .com's.Has anyone sailed with a family (2) adults/(2) children and if so what category cabin? Have always had a balcony and wondering will the balcony cabins accomodate (4).
We had the same problem this year with our family of 3. According to our agent, the government of Bermuda has a quota of visitors that are allowed every week. Since each ship that travels there has a certain quota, the ships will prefer to book only 2 by 2 in each cabin rather than 3 or 4 in a cabin as a family may do.
Thats the story I got last spring, anywho, I got a cabin for the 3 of us but it took patience.
It's true, the Government of Bermuda places strict limitations on the number of cruise ship passengers which has resulted in the cruise lines severely curtailing the number of 3rd/4th pax they can/will carry.
This is pretty funny because I just booked a cabin as a SIGLE for July 8th THIS YEAR & was put into a QUAD cabin by MYSELF! I noticed that the full capacity of this ship is over 2000 if all beds are full, but that the cruise this week only had 1500 according to the stories about the fire, so mayby they do have a capacity ceiling set by Bermuda
