hb mom - those are great prices. I thought I did good booking in March with a Z guarentee for $649 per person. Combined with our air purchased separately the total per person is around $1000 - great price for Alaska. We also sail on the vision in July which is peak season.
I just paid $1768 all taxes included for four persons on the Explorer of the Seas. The internet deal vary greatly from site to site so you need to do some serious searching. I haven't booked twice with ethe same site. Try ***Travel Agency name deleted**
People, people, people...You CANNOT make referance to specific agencies and how good of a deal you got through them. It is a violation of the TOS as it amounts to recommendation and advertising. If we allowed it the message boards would be taken over by agents telling everyone what they have to offer or pretending to be satisfied customers. You can name what your lowest price was etc, but PLEASE do not refer to agencies name as that part will be deleted. Thanks for your understanding.
We are booked on the Vision of the SEas, departing 7/20/03, at 620.00 per person, roundtrip vancounver/alaska cruise. Does not include air but includes taxes/port charges and travel insurance. Thought it was pretty decent. About two years ago my DH and I booked Celebrity Infinity on a 10 day repo trip in Sept (the week after 9/11 of all things) for 1400.00 per person, including air out of philly and insurance. We thought that was pretty good too!
We did a last minute cruise several years ago. We booked two days prior to departure. We were already in Miami area. All our documents were waiting for us at the pier. It was a 7day western caribbean for $300 total.
I hope to plan a trip in July 2004. Could you please give me advise on where you booked your cruise and any other helpful advise. We hope to go with my children and my mother-inlaw in celebration of her 80th birthday... Thanks so much...
Carol Krashen- One of the best things you can do to compare prices is to visit Royal Caribbeans website and select Find a Cruise. You then get to choose what month and year and region. From there just start comparing ship by ship for the price you might be looking for. RCI doesn't have a bad ship so anything you choose would be great.
Please give me some addresses of some of these agencies where you are getting such bargains. I would very much like to compare. We have gone on six Cruises so far on three different Cruise Lines and always try to book at least a year in advance. But, I don't feel that we are getting any real bargains. Always afraid to wait until last minute as then I might be stuck with least desirable rooms. Help!
We're booked on Southern Caribbean from San Juan on Serenade of the Seas Nov 15, Superior Oceanview w/balcony for $2100 for 2 people airfare, taxes, fees, etc. Booked in early July through an internet travel agency.
