Not sure what your point is Bobby, but £760 for a 12 nighter is about right. You just need to purchase your airfares on top..........Wilba.

And that is where the price goes up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I spoke to some americans who were cruising in europe and us brits acctually paid less than them when they added their air fares on to the price.

I have booked Celebrity out of Ft Lauderdale on this very site for slightly less Bobby, but I agree cruises Ex UK have always been higher priced than Ex US since cruising began.......It's nothing new!

There is not a lot of difference when you look at the nitty gritty. Also have you ever bought meat in the USA? The quality is far superior, but it is about half the price we pay here. Lots of other commodities are so much cheaper out there, so really you can't blame Celebrity, everything they have to bring on board when it is in Europe is so much more expensive, even the transport costs are double.

I know from ships' officiers that most produce is shipped from the states and not bought in europe.

All their beef certainly is, just think how much that costs in transportation.

Hi I appear to be in a minority with you, I too thinkthat UK cruisers get a raw deal. Before of most cruise lines were acquired by Carnival, UK cruises were priced higher than those based in the USA but the onboard expenses were lower (drinks, tips were significantly lower) making the "total" cost of the cruise package similar. However, Carnival and RCI have kept the high cruise fares but have raised the onboard expenses (eg Cunard) whereas P&O have kept lower onboard prices. I can't see any change in the pricing policy, cruising is rising in popularity in the UK so why should the cruise lines alter their pricing structure.

22 sleeps

By Stacey Williams

Sorry I am going to become ‘that’ person who feels the need to countdown to her holiday every day. In fact I take back my apology as I do love a countdown. We have just three weeks (and one night) until we head off on our amazing Caribbean cruise. The weather has been very cold in Scotland the past few days so we are well in need of some sunshine!!! Over the past week we have been going through our check list of things to do and we are done I think…Cruise Personaliser &#...

Confessions of a cruise ship worker!

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

Ever wondered what really happens on a cruise ship behind closed doors? Well here it is exactly seen through the eyes of someone who used to work on a cruise ship me!Nearly 27 years ago I flew to Vancouver to join the original Love Boat, Pacific Princess, in Alaska as a Junior Bar Stewardess. I had worked in hotels for a few years so was not worried about the hard work but nothing could prepare me for what I was about to experience.Even now I remember my first day, arriving at the pier side,...
