If you find out could you please let me know as I have just paid 100% suppliment. I was told that you have to book as soon as the holiday is on sale and only so many cabins are offered at discount!!

Hi Maggie, thank you for your reply. too late for this cruise as its done and paid for, but will try Cruise company next time. Booked through First choice this time and did get quite a good deal but still had to pay 100% more than my friends. Just hope its worth it.

Yes, there is a way. Some companies will match you up with a person of the same sex to share a cabin with you. Whether this is suitable for you only you can decide.

Thanks for your response. Sharing with a stranger is fine as long as you are both compatible, better to meet first on a cruise then perhaps share on future cruises. Maggie.

Hi I shopped around on the internet getting different quotes and then choose the company I liked best and told them the quote I had and they price matched it. I got about £200 off the brochure price. Still more expensive than sharing but don't accept the first price you're offered. Good luck.

 I was shocked at the end of last week when I started to hear reports that The River Cruise Line could cease trading.I have personally sailed with The River Cruise Line in the past and had a great experience doing so. I think that they offer very good value for money and offer a product that can cost a lot less to book than some of their more luxurious rivals.Unfortunately Diamond Shortbreak Holidays Ltd who were the parent company of The River Cruise Line announced that they had to go i...

What on earth is THIS?

You may have seen the recent news that Celebrity Edge is now on sale.We’ve seen some artists impressions of the ship and I have to admit, when I first saw this image, I thought it still had part of the scaffolding attached to it….Turns out it’s not scaffolding. It’s a ‘Magic Carpet’.Alrighty then…. So, this Magic Carpet is bright orange and looks pretty horrific but I think the idea is good!The Magic Carpet will be what makes Celebrity Edges prof...
