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.
