Just booked this one, thought I would add it as the cost per night is good.

Bookings today for Elite, tomorrow for others.

 

Sun Princess, Tokyo to Vancouver 17 days, May 5th 2021 insides from $1699.

Tokyo, Muroran, Seward, Hubbard Glacier, Sitka, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, Vancouver.

 

Different sectors from Australia, Singapore, Japan, Vancouver through to LA.

It looks like a Circle Pacific but isnt advertised that way.....wondering if the Sun Princess will stay and do Alaska that year?

Chez. Thanks for heads up.  Liking the look of the cruise before hand too.

Sarah, itineraries so far are Brisbane to Freemantle, Freemantle to Singapore, Singapore to Yokohama Yokohama to Vancouver, Vancouver to LA. Then there is nothing else. 

I put a FCD deposit on Yokohama to Vancouver, onboard folio is in USD, so not sure where it changes to that, perhaps Singapore, which makes me think it will stay and do Alaska season, which will please those in the US that are not happy with the larger ships doing Alaska.

I reserved a cabin when it opened and the next day that category had gone up $300p/p!!

My original post said May 5th, its departs Yokohama May 2nd, my bad!!

Hey Mic can't find those prices on the usual sites either.  What phrase would you search on?

Perhaps search for Your cruise holidays instead of mine.

You may have to call them, the one you are looking at is for the Radiance of the seas, not Carnival spirit.

cheaper again, although those extras really add up (2 nights, transfers, tour package, etc) equivalent to around $800

Both great deals.

But you're right even just the accom & obc was well worth the extra $500 on a balcony.  Pearl harbour tour nice icing!

Especially as the OBC of $200 USD is worth $289 AUD on it's own.

Ruby Princess 14 night “New Year’s Eve” cruise from Auckland to Sydney including flights (and that’s from Perth). 

$5395 for the cabin with two passengers. $193 pp/night. Plus $100 OBC.

 

Not quite the Carnival bargain, but pretty good for that time of year.

My first ever cruise in 2012 was on the Ruby Princess. Nice ship.

I saw a good deal for a trip last weekend.

Fly, tour & cruise package Japan & China $1999 (Inside) + $300 O/V, plus $300 V.

17 Days (late Feb 2020)

RCI Spectrum of the Seas. 6 nights, 3 ports, Japan. Kagoshima, Kobe, Osaka

Tour China, 9 nights. Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Zhengzhou,  Beijing, Great Wall etc.

Includes an internal flight and bullet train in China.

I'm having a think about this one and may do it if I can convince my (avoid) single supplement friend to come as well otherwise the price almost doubles.

Wow that is good and not to far from Oz for less flight time than to Europe

I totally get the Single Sup thing as I travel solo too, I can never work out why it doubles when there is only 1 air fare , 1 train fare and 1 gratuities ...math does not make sense to me ???

I have seen this same thing on other packages too

Given the Australian society now consists of many divorced aka singles , there seems very few tours that cater for such

So hey you tourist operators out there, you are missing out on lots of single people who want to travel but are not prepared to be ripped off !

We are on a Japan and Philippines fly /cruise /stay package, in December this year.  Great deal and it is most likely the same mob.
