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..

hope it works out for someone.

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.
Yes, you should get 14 points for the cruise. After this cruise, I will be Gold....then I am on the TA in April (21st) for 16 nights....which will put me to Platinum after that cruise....unless I cruise between Dec and April and make Platinum before the cruise

Sorry to hear about the family death.

Dec 9-16 will be my 5th cruise this year just since April. I normally only do 2 a year, but the deals were just to good to pass up

I didn't want a bunch of kids on the cruise. My tolerance for children just isn't real high anymore....esp when the parents don't make them behave.

Might have to look into this one after I get back from my cruise. Thanks for posting

I feel the same way. Too bad so many parents now feel it is OK to take thiers out of school because they don't want to be on cruises with lots of kids The kid free cruises are getting few and far between.
I thought last year when I cruised b2b2b December 5,10 & 15 would be short of children but, the 15th was packed. Either schools let out really early or they just all start on vacation early. Our kids were still in school when I got home on the 20th

Thanks. I know the feeling about tolerance with kids. I prefer to not to have too many but the cruise price was too hard to pass up. Also, have been to the UK three times this year has left me with limited vacation. That is the reason for this date along with the fact that we have 1 1/2 weeks off work starting Dec 23rd, so don't go back to work after this cruise.

Would like to cruise or go some during our extended Xmas break but the rates are either double or near triple.

It would have cost me over $1400 to go the week of Xmas instead of $660 the week before. My mind tells me to save the money as I could get two cruises for the cost of cruising at Xmas.

Sounds like you will get to platinum status before me. Way to go!!!!!!

I have 32 points and after this cruise will be at 46 points which is two points short of platinum. I have a cruise in April which will add another 7 making me get the new status WOO WOO.

While doing my bargain search to use the NextCruise certificate I got while on my thanksgiving cruise I found this....if my math is right, it is about a 35-40% supplement...of course, air fare has to be factored, but a good deal for 10 nights

Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Sail Date: April 13, 2013
San Juan
St.Thomas
St. Maarten
7 days at sea
Lisbon, Portugal

Solo Price ranges:
Inside 418-518 (double occ 309-339)
Outside 698-958 (double occ 449-579)
Balcony 998-1238 (double occ 599-719)

I have a hold on an inside cabin, deck 9 and total price is 577.80
The lowest priced inside is 477.80 with all taxes and fees, and about 750-800 for outside.

More than likely booking today...

Yes the cruise price was to hard to pass up.....I did the exact same ports in Aug of last year...but on the Spirit instead of the Star. I wanted to "see" the Star before sailing on it in April 2013. Plus this cruise (Dec 9-16) is over my birthday, so that was the biggest reason. I would have loved to have cruised over Christmas, but like you, I just can't let go of 3 times the fare...like you, I think of that fare getting me 3 cruises instead of the one.

I also have been to Europe 3 times this year.


IF you booked your cruise in April at least 9 months out, you will get an extra point (double) for doing so. I have 40 points right now....after this cruise will have 54 and then IF I don't cruise anymore between now and April (which I really think I will end up doing ) then I will start that cruise with 54 points, but since I booked it in May 2012 more than 9 months out and since it is a 16 night cruise, at the end of that cruise I will add another 32 points to my 54 points which will give me 86 points which will be more than enough to make Platinum. Not that Platinum is such a big deal, but there are a few nice perks

You are correct. IF I did not have friends going on the NCL Star on a 16 night TA on April 21, I would have booked this one. The price is cheaper than what I am paying, but I just can't do it. I can't change because a few of us are going on another 7 night cruise after the TA....and this one would put us in to Europe before we needed to be there....maybe 2014....should I be that lucky... I know of at least 2 of my Face Book friends that have booked this....

Not yet...will probably do it after first of the year. I know I can beat the price ChoiceAir will give me, but I also had an experience of missed flights and missed cruise when I did my own one year....sooooo...thinking I will probably pay the extra for piece of mind, especially since it is international return trip.

Last Friday, I booked an inside cabin on the Vision of the Seas. Eastern Caribbean, 10 days, out of Ft. Lauderdale on Jan. 4. I think it was part of their weekly specials but the bottom line is I paid $650 and a few cents for solo occupancy. I guess it's all a matter of timing.

Very good deal...I would have jumped on it if I was not already booked on the Brilliance 10 night TA on the same departure day.

Just browsing around today I found a fantastic deal on a spring 2013 TA--only thing is, not sure how much the airfare would be. But, ChoiceAir gave me a GREAT price on my flight to London for my November TA--way cheaper than I could get anywhere else--so I expect they'd have a decent option on this one too.

Anyhow, here's the deal (inside cabin):

RCCL Adventure of the Seas, 14 nights
Departs April 21 from San Juan
Ports: St. Thomas, St. Martin, St. Lucia, St. Kitts
Arrives Southampton England on May 5

$548 plus fees/taxes, total $634.06

Sooo tempting...
