The Dec. 10th sailing has doubled in price, but the Nov. 30th sailing still has balconies available for $861.00. Great deal if you can travel last minute.

Default queen mary 2, t/a r/t balcony--$1089.00 (single)

14 nights, queen mary 2. southampton/new york and back. lot's of 'seadays' but if y'all enjoy the transatlantic experience--my understanding is: qm2 is a pretty good way to do it.

Cunard Cruise Lines
QM2
20 November 2012
14 nights
749 pounds = (i think) about $1089.00 in real [american] money. that's for inside, outside or balcony accommodations in cunard's 'britania' class. princess & queens grille are about twice the price--but still a 'bargain', relative to full fair..

website for more info: http://www.passionforcruises.co.uk/singles.php


hope it works out for someone.

Hey all

I have found that the only way to get that single rate on the balcony is to call Travelocity directly I just did it and it worked.

I recently booked a 7-day cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale on HAL msEurodam, VH guarantee (a balcony), for $1200 solo. I'm not sure what the single supplement is but that was a great price for the cabin. I should also get $50 OBC from Expedia. This was for the Dec. 15, 2012 sailing, so I'm not sure how long it will last.

Thanks for the information. Booked the Dec 16th NCL Star cruise thru Costco. the Deck 4 GTY solo price for me was $667 including taxes. The TA thru in $25 OBC and will pay the $84 tips. This is the cheapest that I have cruised from N.O. Have done this NCL route many times and enjoy the ports. On NCL, they stop at 4 ports unlike most of the other 7 day cruises.

This is an early Xmas present to myself.

I ended up going with Costco also....final price was $630.49....booked in their "group" and was given $100 OBC (so IMO the price was $530.49).....will also get double points with NCL since it is a latitude insider offer.....I looked at the Dec 16 sailing....however, I really wanted to sail over my birthday (Dec 13) and I figured that Dec 16 will have more kids on board.....

I like the fact that you can enter the cruise you're thinking of booking, see the flight options and when you're ready, you chose the one you want. I'm also going on an NCL cruise in March and booking air with them is a crap shoot - you take what they give you. Um, no thanks.




No idea! It's a mystery, just seems to depend on how many cabins are still available in that category. All I know is that if I do another transatlantic in the future, I'll wait until just after final payment to book it because the prices really dropped. This however may be a tad too late, not sure what kind of flight you could get at this late date.

I've never sailed NCL but have been looking at it because of the new studio rooms. Then I compared price for studio to paying double fare as a single and found the double fare is less costly than the studio

Meanwhile I've noticed how inexpensive their transatlantics or repos are and am thinking it would be a good way to get to Europe inexpensively maybe to take another ship for a med cruise etc.

You got a slightly better deal than me. Mine was also a inside latitudes offer. When you say you get double points, does that mean 14 points for a 7 day cruise instead of the usual 7 points? This will help me get closer to Gold status with NCL. Already have silver status and will check those perks on my Dec 16th cruise. Have a family cruise in April 14th on the same boat.

I didn't think about the amount of kids on the boat on Dec 16th. Anyhow, at least I will on a boat and away from work. This is will be my first cruise this year, usually do two but family death changed one of my cruise plans.
