MS Ryndam

OVERVIEW: This ship has fairly decent interior fit and finish. Holland America Line constantly fine-tunes its performance as a cruise operator and regular passengers, almost all North American, find its ships comfortable and well-run, though the food and service are disappointing. The ship is deploy

Voyager of the Seas

OVERVIEW: In terms of sheer size, this ship presently dwarfs many others in the cruise industry, but in terms of personal service, the reverse is the case, unless you happen to reside in one of the top suites. This is impersonal city life at sea.

Report
Hi, my girlfriend works on board the Carnival Sensation. I am hoping to go out and see her for a holiday in June. However, it is going to be extremely expensive because - A) I am travelling alone so will have to pay the double occupancy. B) Because the cruises are only 3 & 4 days I will have to book 2 cruise to go for a week, or 4 cruises for a fort night.

The staff do not get discount in their 1st year of emplyment. Does anybody know any ways around this?

Cheers.

...or put her 'on hold' for a year until she qualifies for a discount. ;)

Yes, well they do say that, 'absence makes the heart grow fonder.' But they also say that, 'while the cats away the mice will play.'

Those Carnival 3/4 nighters can be the cheapest in the world if you look at the US travel agent websites, around $200 dollars per cruise, although you have chosen the most expensive month, June, with prices around $350. I can't help with the single occupancy issue but a flight booked well in advance to Orlando for Port Canaveral needn't be a major expense. Can't you find a friend to share?

Have you thought of going outside school vacation times? Fares are much cheaper then... you might even get a break on the single supplement- not much but 150% rather than 200%.
