Coral Princess

OVERVIEW: For a large ship, the layout is quite user-friendly, and less disjointed than many ships of a similar size. Because of its slim width, the ship can transit the Panama Canal, thus providing greater flexibility in deployment than the Grand Princess-class ships. In a 2009 refit, an adults-onl

Question

Report
Can anyone enlighten me as to why I hve been quoted £10722.00 for a suite on Ventura direct with P&O direct, but all the cartel cruise agents quote exactly the same rate of £5972.00?

Why won't P&O price this cruise at a better rate than they let the Cartel sell them?

I have been told by several of the Cartel agents that P&O have changed the way they pay these agents to a fixed fee, that's why all the agents are the same price? Is this true?
