Default Transatlantic Special Promotion

I noticed that Seabourn is heavily promoting the September 29, 2006 transatlantic, Seabourn Pride London to Gloucester, MA. They are offering 50% discount, two free nights in London and 200 pound sterling gift certificate to Harrods. So what's "wrong" with this cruise besides possible bad weather on the North Atlantic? Is the weather a big enough potential problem to scare most folks away?

Question Could cost be keeping them less-than-full?

Why are the Westbound transatlantics up to 2-3 times the price of the eastbounds?, even with discounts? I know they're a couple days longer, but, jeez... Pride westbound 2007 is nearly $7000 after discount!

Default Gloucester, MA

Why is Seabourn using Gloucester, MA, as the northeast homeport rather than Boston? That is a $$$ taxi ride from Logan airport.

One thing to note is that the promotion (at least here in the US) does not include any single run of ship rates and the percentage discount is different, so you really need to do the math to be sure you are getting the best overall price.

I had thought of taking that for '08 if it is still offered during my September birthday . The fare looked pretty good to me for this cruise line and amenities !

Default comp transfer from Logan

Johnnycruise,

Seabourn is offering a free transfer from Logan to Gloucester. They chose Gloucester 'cause it's so cute, and because they can.

I actually loved the old itinerary, which was 18 days from London via the British Isles to St. John's, and then down the eastern seaboard to NY. I would do that again in a heartbeat, if it were offered.

Default Wow!!

Wow!
Hooked & Booked already for this TransAtlantic Crosssing.

Crossings being my favorite as day by day, port by port “is my idea of nothing to do” (thank you Cole!)

My TA called Seabourn and learned that transfer to BOS from Gloucester would be $100 per person! Say it isn't so! The commuter train might be a better choice in that case.

Default Transfer is free this year

Wilbar45,

Have your TA check again. There was some confusion.

I have checked and, because they originally advertised the port as Boston this year, they will be providing one, or in some cases- two transfers free of charge.

For folks flying into Logan too early to go directly to the ship, they will be transfered to a downtown Boston venue, from which they can explore Boston, until time to transfer on to Gloucester and the ship.

Folks arriving later will be taken right to the ship.

Same way outbound from Gloucester--either to Boston proper for awhile or directly to Logan for flights.

"As good as their word!"
