Royal Caribbean have a price drop promise, prior to final payment. Celebrity are their sister company so it begs the question, do they have the same policy? If it were me I would be phoning Weybridge to ask the question. That being the case any monies saved could be used for an upgrade if that were your choice. I for one would be interested in their response........Regards Wilba .

Price drops are given to UK Cruisers on Celebrity and Azamara. Price drops apply right up to sail date not just to final payment.

Thanks for that, I thought that may be the case & if Norris decides to look at that option I hope they have booked, either direct or through a ' proper' cruise agent & not a High St shop, as it's been reported that 'they' will not honour the price drop & at best fob you off with some OBC........Wilba.

The weakness in the pound against the dollar is unlikely we will see any great reduction in US based cruise companies costs. The Galaxy leaves on Monday 29th and it being shown as full. There are some good offers if you have a look around but the ship and cruise might not be what you want. Certainly there could be upgrades which you might not find out about until you join the ship this has happened on three ocassions for us plus one before we left, one set of tickets on the Monday and another on the Thursday representing an upgrade from Conceirge to a Suite, so we were happy about that. But Wilba asked does Celebrity have the same clause re pricing as does Royal Caribbean and it does. We did Sydney to Auckland earlier this year and it was a great cruise, we even for reasons not obvious found the travel distance was not as bad as we were expecting.

If you have paid your final account then you will receive the amount you paid in fuel surcharge refunded in the form of "On-board Credit" If you still have your final account to pay then it will be reduced by the amount you paid in fuel surcharge. The VAT change will not amount to anything as the majority of the charge was zero rated and you will have to put up with the 30% drop in the recent value of the GB pound against the US dollar as this is the currency used on the ship so your on-board charges will cost you more in exchange terms.

New York New York Restaurants

By Stacey Williams

One of the things I love about going to a new city is all the new restaurants you can try! Now we weren’t super adventurous in the places but we did eat very well. Here are the places we tried out –Day One – We arrived in New York at around 4pm so we had something booked to save us looking. We had a table booked at R Lounge at Two Times Square. This restaurant is part of the Renaissance Hotel and is right on Times Square. If you fancy dinner with a view and not pay thro...

Sky Dive in the Sunshine state

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

It’s almost time for my annual Florida fix. I do like to try and squeeze in a trip to Florida every year. If I can of course. This time I’m doing something a little more than just the parks.I’ve signed up to do a sky dive. Moment of madness, impulsive booking, whatever but I’m going through with it. Tandem dive of course with a fully qualified instructor. I’m doing this jump at the highest altitude for a Tandem jump possible which is at 18000ft.We all have things...
