Got back from a 21 day SE Asian cruise, Nov. 16-great cruise.
Had a mail flyer from Princess,-Japan Grand adventure, 27 days from $2,299 caught my eye. Cruise comprised of three 9 day back to back cruises.
All prices Cdn. $
Checked Princess website, Balcony for the 27 day cruise balcony, $3,899, plus $180 taxes.
Seems like an excellent price, also cost of booking individual 9 day cruises is $5997 plus $180.
Very unusual as have found that normally there is no saving between booking single cruise or combination of BTB’s.
Also non CC price is $8499 plus $180! (more than double CC price!)and basically same price as sum of each of the 3 cruises if non CC. Something is haywire.
Now see deal re getaway cruises in January, full cost refunded as future cruise credit.
Book 5 cruises out of Ft. Lauderdale, 23 days, $2295 plus $380 taxes, the $2295 can be applied to my Japan cruise.
Yesterday check prices, price of 27 day Japan is now $6299 plus $180-in line with cost of 3 cruises individually. Some one has wised up.
So now have booked the 5 Jan. getaway cruises for $2675, and 27 day Japan cruise for $4079-$2295 credit=$1781.
Total cost $4456.
Value= $2675 ( 5 Jan. Carib cruises-23 days)
$6479 (27 day Japan cruise)
Total $9154 for 50 days.
My cost $4456
Savings $4698 times 2 ( me and DW)
Pinch me I’m dreaming!!!
