Anyone else here that Bestpricecruises.com is under investigation? My TA told me they are because they give a low quote then when you actually book with credit card # they raise the price. Just wondering if anyone else heard this.
I got a quote from Bestpricecruises.com for Navigator CAT I ocean view cabin of $579, and $649.00 from TA. Of course I want to go the cheaper one, but am affraid to now.
We've had NO difficulty with Best Price Cruises and have used them a number of times. We did a group cruise with them a couple of years back with 480 people and it went off without hitch.
Just who did your TA say is "supposedly" investigating them? Once you book, you get a confirmation of your booking, stating the price, so what your TA is implying wouldn't work anyway for more than 5 minutes.
Honestly sounds to me like someone who is upset they aren't capable of matching prices with Best Price Cruises, and making up stories.
I have checked their prices out, and it is true. They do give out false information in Pricing. They will quote you the lowest price on the ship like a special state rate or senior rate even if your not a senior. This is not the first time.
I dunno about being investigated but keep in mind .."buyer beware" with any company. "Cruise411" jacked me up when they found out I had "RCI" coupons and unfortunately I hadn't printed out their initial offer. Otherwise I would have been on them like a tasmanian devil (OK.. me and the Better Business Bureau). I just had to cancel the booking and post what happened on here. The T/A use now is online AND lives in the adjoining town so I am quite happy.
