Will they put the shore excursions on sale, do you think?

 

Never have, to my observation.

 

This sale looks similar to that was on offer this past September.

Why do we in the UK never get these fab offers?

 

 

You can, when booking via a USA TA

From my understanding past guests even in Britannia also get free gratuities, not just Grills guests.

We have a similar sale in Australia.  Balcony for the price of inside.

I checked for my cruise next year (Christmas/New Year) and just saved over $4700 aus.

Thanks for letting us know of sales.  I am one happy girl.

Had it confirmed today by Cunard that they are not doing any specific Black Friday cruise offers in the UK so once again Cunard are it seems giving deals to other countries but not cruisers in the UK. Not impressed so have changed mind about booking a Princess Grill suite for Summer 2019 and looking at other all inclusive 6 star cruise lines which when you add gratuities/drinks onto cruise price are very competitive.

Black Friday is such an American thing that I'd think Brits would object. 

 

Maybe there should be a Guy Fawkes day sale?

I wouldn't be too envious my UK friends. These prices don't seem to be that great. In September my wife and I did the Fashion Week trans-Atlantic crossing in a sheltered balcony for U$849pp plus a $100pp OBC. The lowest price crossing I'm seeing on the Black Friday sale is U$1149 interior cabin with free gratuities and a double upgrade to mid-ship sheltered balcony. However, we will continue to watch in case better deals pop up.

Like everything else we have followed suit to the US and Black Friday has been popular in UK the last few years.

How did you see the new prices?  I've been on the site but haven't seen them and tried the 'code' and got a notice to call for pricing.  Is that what you did?

It should be interesting to see if the Black Friday Sale shows up tomorrow (20th) or closer to Friday.

I received an email about the sale coming soon from Cunard, but have yet to see it on the Cruise Deals either.

 

Like some others on this thread, I am curious about the list as well... does the Black Friday Sale just apply to the ones on the list or will there also be discounts to other cruises?

There's a promo code in the fine print (the one for the sale expiring today is N1A) which you can enter into a field on the first booking screen (I think it's below where you enter your World Club number). I don't know if it will work on a cruise not listed though.

My travel agent told me the price is higher today for what we have in mind and already booked using the previous  3-in-1 promotions

Be mindful of the advice from the Consumers' Association in the UK that very few Black Friday offers are actually cheaper than offer prices available before or after. That would seem to apply to cruises as much as vacuum cleaners judging by Jack E Dawson's comments above.

Nothing to worry about because Cunard UK arent doing anything in UK where in the US Black Friday is a bigger thing and if you book a suite you get free drinks/gratuities which I am sure compared to booking prices in UK is a very good deal.

Given the lack of free gratuities in Britannia, this offer isn't as good as the Free for All promo that ended just before it.
