Default Vancouver to Sydney

Hi Lawrence,
I live in Sydney and will be flying to Vancouver in September intending to cruise back to Sydney.
My thinking to date is to depart Vancouver on September 24 sailing on the Volendam, inside cabin.
I looked at the departure four days later on the Oosterdam but could not justify the 20% additional cost for an extra day at sea.

I'm a seasoned sailor and embarking on my 18th cruise and have previously enjoyed this voyage on the Sun Princess. The ports of call are secondary to the cruise.

If you'd like to chat further then please email me at [email protected]

Regards

I don't quite follow what you are saying as the price for an inside cabin is identical on both departures. FastDeal 11844

My price list shows:
Oosterdam at$Aud 2799 and
Volendam at$Aud 2199 for inside cabin.

These prices include all taxes, fees etc and as published by Holland America.

Both Vacationstogo and HA are showing $2,499.00, maybe you qualify for special pricing. But I prefer a balcony.

Default San Fran to Sydney

I read the postings and wonder if you are interested instead of Vancouver to Sydney on September 16th 2014. - joining me on Royal Caribbean Celebrity Century 23 nights from San Fran to Sydney.

I have an inside cabin mid ship for US$3000 single. While taxes will be added for the second person it will likely work out at about $1650 each.
Quite a bit cheaper than you mention for Holland America and I think that both the cruise line and the ships are comparative.

Anyway, its just a thought.

Default Sydney-Vancouver?

At one point, I thought I'd read that you were interested in Sydney-Vancouver, departing April 13, 2014, and I'm after a cabin mate for that one...so, I thought it couldn't hurt to ask.
