Sorry to disappoint you Ann but although the headline price is shown as £1399pp, when you attempt a booking the cheapest inside cabins are now £1499. But I agree the lower deposit might in your case be worth the extra price.Now that I've booked, I have to say that the opening prices for this cruise did seem very cheap. I know it's not school holidays, but the itinerary is the most interesting 'no fly' Med Cruise for some years, yet the price we have paid is the lowest per person per night that we have had in the last 10 years and is significantly lower than other similar length cruises in 2019. As a result of all of this, I suspect that there has been a rush of bookings for this cruise and prices will start to rise.
As a further point of interest, of the five future cruises we have booked, all but one was booked during the pre registration period. Every single one of them is now more expensive, one by an eye watering 50%.
