Well you were all right, I want to do it again!!!
I will be 60 in March next year and would love to do the Dream trip again, I'm just wondering the best time to book re free all inc or onboard spends, or do you think it's better to forgo those offers and just keep a check on the prices, it's a bit more difficult when you have a particular date you want to be away for, what do you do people?
That's the Million Dollar question, blossom!
We do both - for a special date, and to get the airport of our choice and any free Ai then an early booking can be best. But then again we've had some great deals by waiting until close to departure.
But we missed out big time this year. We had hoped to go in January and I left it too late - the prices started rocketing and moreover the Gatwick flight sold out. It's the first time I've really come unstuck so spectacularly and I must say it's getting harder to predict what's going to happen to prices these days.
My DH always says decide on a price you're prepared to pay then book and forget it - there's no point spoiling your holiday checking how the price is going and making yourself miserable because you could have got it cheaper. You might end up missing the boat - literally!
I'd see what the launch prices look like and see if they are reasonable and make a decision then - and don't forget to check out different sites for the best deal.
