Early bookers get the best discounts. As cruises for Jan10 have been on sale for a few months now you will already have missed the lowest prices. If you book with RCI or Celebrity and the price drops from what you paid then you will get the lower price - so with them it is a win-win situation. Alternatively you can leave it to the very last minute when the prices can really fall if there are many rooms left, but then you will pay more for the flights so you don't really win that way either. If it is a special birthday and you are tied to a certain date then I would book asap.

You don't mention if their is a specific date that you wish to be on your cruise on, and you don't say if you have cruised before, or what your budget is? It sounds to me though that you should be seriously looking at booking now! Most of the decent Caribbean cruises are costing around £100 a day at the moment for an inside cabin, which is a fair price to pay considering flights are included in this. Although sometimes the prices of a particular cabin may drop if you leave it later to book, the actual type of, or position of the cabin that you wish to book may sell out. Not much good having a half price suite available if you can only afford an inside cabin! Before eventually choosing your cruise, check out who you will be flying with also. Some charter airlines cram people in like sardines, and this can be very uncomfortable on a 9 hour flight there and back! Happy cruising.

My Cruise Experience of the Tu...

By Richard Smith

Last week I sailed with Thomson Cruises on their new TUI Discovery 2 which has been recently acquired by Thomson and was formerly the Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas.I hadnt sailed with Thomson before and although I had generally had a very positive response from my clients about them I had been a little bit put off personally by the smaller size and age of their fleet of ships.With Thomson now taking on some of these larger (medium sized in real terms) ships with a more modern design, thi...

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Off to Rockley

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
