Private Sale started today- Bait & Switch

Recommended Posts

The cruise I wanted anyway.....

Transpacific - cruises shown are Westerdam 9/19 and 4/20. Prices shown are 9/19. Called, 4/20 (my original preference), wasn't on sale at all; twice the price.

Why was it even listed in the sale flyer??

The flyers always highlight and notate which sailing has the sale price.  That is not bait and switch.

Not bait and switch; rather a case of an unsophiscated cruiser not understanding how cruise prices are listed in any brochure or sale.

Thank you. sophisticated cruisers!
I thought they were all on Cunard.....

 

Nope, lots here understand how the flyers work.

 

Sadly, your cruise you want to do is not always one of the chosen ones 😉

The fine print notes that the prices listed are what's being offered for one of the sailings (usually they bold that date).  Then they further caveat that the sale prices might not still be available when you try to book.  Most of the ones on offer are usually in the near future, so it's akin to getting after-final-payment pricing.

I have usually found the Private Sale prices to be pretty good and have booked a number of them.
