Default NCL Ripoff; 206% single suppliment

I'm ok with the we sell the room so singles might be charged 100% supplement argument. It could even be argued that a ship with fewer travelers(many singles) might lead to fewer tips for staff so 120% might fly...but I get seriously PO'd when I see a deal this bad.

Advertised on the Jewel for $509/night plus free $50 OB credit, singles price $1558.

Am I alone? Discuss...

No you are not alone I am surprised you are surprised.

The deals are out there you just have to find them.

Upmarket lines sometimes have a supplement as low as 10%; 22% etc.

There is a very good thread on another board where people post the latest good finds maybe we should start a similar thread here ?

Never saw anything like this for NCL. It's got to be a misprint or a change in cabin type. When was this supposed to happen?

yep, just got the same treatment trying to book a last minute cruise leaving from new orleans where I live. The advertised price is $399 with upgrade to ocean view and they quoted me over $900 for interior as solo...bummer. I'm sick of being penalized for being single.

If it's 200% plus taxes, that's about right. I cruise very little solo now.

200% suppliment so you pay 3 times as much. I actually saw worse the other day (3.5 times single rate).

There are lots of deals out there just now with supplements between 0% and 50%.

MSC for one.
