Price Difference for a US citizen travelling with a Canadian

Recommended Posts

Has this ever happened to anyone?

  I booked myself(Canadian) and my friend (American) on a Nieuw Amsterdam cruise in Europe in CAD.

Everything good so far- price is the same.  My American friend logs into Flight Ease and books her flight from a US city and gets confirmation in CAD.'Get a new invoice and 

her base cruise fare is over $400 higher than mine.  I call and I am told that she has to pay a higher fare because she is not in Canada like me. My US travel agent had never heard of this 

nor had a Canadian TA I know.

We met and socialized with some HAL phone reps who were on the same cruise we were on a few years ago.  They  mentioned something like this, once they found out we were Canadian.  Something about HAL sometimes having special pricing for Canadians only.

Sometimes HAL has regional sales. On one cruise my DBiL/DSiL from Connecticut paid a different price than we did from FL in the same cabin category ... but I can't remember who paid more! (10 years ago)
