It's on the website now. We are booking it tomorrow. Glad the schedule finally came out. We normally book a sky suite, but I think we are just going to book a premium balcony as I really don't think on this cruise we will spend much time in the room. Just hoping some of the airfares come down.
Most of Europe is available by calling direct. However Transatlantic thus far is still not available. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Cruise Junky:
The website is being tempermental. Pick a date in 2004 then go to Price this Itinerary, in the drop down date box, you can select a 2005 date.
Not sure what to do. Prices and iternary is up for Connie for the Northern Europe crusing with ST, Petersburg, will be on Millie this summer in Europe, if I book while on cruise will get 200 shipboard credit, but if I wait will prices go up?? need advice
Just my own take on this- I'd much rather have first choice of cabin location than $200 credit. The cruise takes a big financial bite, and then to have to compromise on what cabins will be available later on this summer? Nah- I grabbed mine this morning and got the cabin of my choice.
Location: On a Cruise or at home in the NC mountains wishing I was on a cruise
My suggestion is book now and get the cabin you want. Either book through a TA or give them the booking after the fact and tell them what you will be doing.
Then, when you are on a cruise, price the same ship/date. If the price is no worse, book it (any cabin will do). Then give the TA the new reservation and have him/her put the cabin you want on the booking with the credit. Then cancel the original reservation. Worst case, you might have two deposits outstanding, but you can frequently get 7-10 days before a deposit is due when you book on board.
I booked the 5/15 Barcelona to Venice tonight on CQ. Managed to snag 8045, and was surprised to find out that it is now CC? Have I missed something? However, I can confirm Cruise Junky's price - our final price was between $800-900 less than Celebrity's. How could I say "No" to such a deal?
I have only cruised the Med once. On Millennium last May- the weather was perfection everywhere we visited. I especially liked it because flowers were blooming everywhere and the hills green. So we booked the May 15 sailing for next year.
