Whether you pay £2k or £4k for your cruise to a degree it could be because of the type of cabin you have selected so I don't see the point in this if you are unhappy about your cruise then the cost really does not bear any direct relation only that some cruisers can afford more than others, but perhaps my little grey cells are not working well this morning.
Your little grey cells are fine. Comments on the standard of service, cold food, unruly kids etc. have nothing to do with the cost of the cruise. Nor is feeling 'ripped-off' by the number of 'extras', which seems to be increasing alarmingly. I think we all need to read the fine print these days.
If you select a cruise on a small ship that includes drinks etc it does cost more initially but at the end of the day you can relax and enjoy your holiday without worrying about the shipboard account appearing under your door. There is also no worry, or complaining about service charges as there are none.
Some of the people in these columns are possibly paying over the odds to be treated abominable by certain cruise operators so I was interested to compare what they paid in comparison to what they complained about.
For what it's worth, I would be more interested in the past cruising history of complainants/reviewers rather than the amount they paid.
Yes, it would be useful if we included the price we paid. And we were truthful about it. Can't see any snags there then :) Chris.
A) There always some who will not be exact and exaggerate or minimise. ................................................
B) There are always those who will have paid far less than you for the cruise and that can be so annoying. I remember paying £4000 less than others for Queens Grill and a Concord flight back when Pontius was a pilot and we daren't tell others what we had paid.............................................................
C) There really are too many variables to make this a valid exercise ...............................................
My advise would be to do your research, 50% off means nothing, find what you feel is acceptable and add on some extra, then be happy with what you have got because you consider your price to be value for money. ........Neil
I like B Neil, a few moons ago, then?
Of course you should do your research....find the best price you can........and THEN offer the a deal a couple of hundred pounds CHEAPER ! It almost always works. Never ever accept the first price that anyone offers, always negotiate.
I'm looking forward to my 12 days all inclusive in the Caribbean for way less that £2000. Inclusive gratuaties, inclusive champagne and a real full sized bath !! (I'm not going to tell you who with........that would be giving away too much hard learned info !!).
I'm with Morton. Past cruising history yes. The fact someone pays more for a cruise can mean they're inexperienced, incompetent or just damn foolish, so it's possible the more you pay, the lower the quality of the complaint.
