Already have a Californian Coastal booked for May '13 with Princess. Glad cos nothing grabs me with P&O really.
Anyway, if it did would wait til last minute after our experience this year when we booked our Fjords cruise really early. Our friends booked much later, no problem getting cabin AND free coach travel AND more obc!!

Don't rely on the online price. I suspect it isn't showing the 10% anniversary discount or the 5% early booking discount. Your TA or P&O themselves should quote the correct prices.

P&O website prices are now exactly the same as the quote I was given by my TA, so looks like it has sorted itself out.

I've booked on-line this morning for 14 nights on Ventura to the W Med in June 2013. We've got the cabin we want (C deck mid-ships, sort-of - a cabin we've had before), the dining arrangements we want, free car-parking, and even £100 OBC each. So we're happily sorted.

This morning, we cancelled one and booked another !!

Cancelled Azura 12 October '12 (no-fly Caribbean) and moved our booking to Azura 7 September '13 (Black Sea). Someone is going to get lucky on the 12 October cruise because we had a corner aft balcony on B Deck. We were lucky enough this morning to get another corner aft on C Deck for the Black Sea cruise. We've never been 'aft' before - well you've gotta try it sometime.

Happy cruising everyone, and I hope you all find and enjoy whatever you book for next season.
Sandra

waiting to hear tomorrow
hoping to get all our requirements for caribbean cruise, end of nov 2013.
in the hands of the agent now.

Have insisted the 4 of us want the same flight out,...odd request i know, but 2years ago, when we got our flight confirmation, my son and daughter, were unbelievably booked on a different flight to us
we got it changed, but it was a bit of a scary moment. Odd considering this was a family booking made all together.
Good job i checked the paperwork carefully !!!

Talking 2013 cruises

The full worldie on Aurora and Iceland/Norway on Adventure OTS. As for 2014 thinking of a RTW flight, but I'll probably be able to squeeze in a cruise too!

I am sure i will be glad I booked it. My brother and sis in law are avid cruisers and they said once I have been on a cruise i wouldnt want to travel any other way. I thought I might have been able to try it first and then book the second. lol
