Absolutely. We've been haggling with the travel agents for the last couple of weeks and went to book a P&O cruise yesterday for next year only to find the price had increased due to a fuel surcharge being slapped on of £100 per person. Damn! We then went back to the travel agent who gave us the next best price and they didn't add the fuel surcharge on! Best advice I can give is to shop around and be quick (well quicker than us anyway!).

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...

Its seems Royal Caribbean have a bottomless pit of cash at the moment as they have just announced to spend another whopping $200 million in 2019. This isn’t to be spent on a brand new ship nor is it to be spent on a refit of a new ship. This money is to be spent on the re invention of Royal Caribbeans private Islands, revolutionising the biggest makeover of any land programme to date from one cruiseline.Coco Cay, formally known as little Stirrup Cay will be re invented to create what R...
