You are also waiting for the Amsterdam cruises in 2013?
I hope Jewel will do them!!!
Yes!!! I really want to do St. Petersburg and the Harwich cruises are priced too high.
Doesn't anyone think it's very telling that the Europe cruises are such a discount now...Did RCI send too many ships?..I hope they are realizing they did and send some home...The west coast may not in the near future be such a bad choice for RCI to return to. PCL coastals booked up very quickly and proving to be very popular.
It's not all about the room rate....it's also onboard spending and the price of those excursions are crazy!
They could offer the Europe cruises for FREE but it'll still cost me $1800 in airfare, luggage fees, and transfers before I even stepped foot on the ship!
Yes, I also think the cruise lines send too many ships to Europe for summer deployment, just like I think they send too many to Alaska.
Still waiting on Baltimore schedules...
$1800? Wow...where do you live? The highest I've paid (from DFW) is $1300 to get to Europe during peak season (Ireland this upcoming July) and you get one free piece of checked luggage. Transfer on a train can be as low as $5.00USD. We paid $60 for a private car to get us from the airport in Rome to the city centre (nice plush Mercedes too).
I've never seen $1800 to get to Europe!
It costs me $450 to get to Florida for a boring Caribbean cruise that is expensive. Would much rather pay an extra $600 to get to Europe. Biggest problem is that you usually need to tack on extra days for travel and I can't do that in the spring, so I'm stuck with the Caribbean.
