We have a booking on QV and have certainly heard nothing. why not contact your travel agent and check it out----or Cunard customer services if you booked direct. Cynthia.

Hi Herbert my wife an i are doing a transatlantic crossing( B1 sup balcony ) and 6 nights in New York in April 2009 that i booked a good few months ago, i too have seen all the Cunard sale advertisments but as yet Cunard / our booking agent has not offered us any upgrades am i asking too much to think this should be the case? Also as this is our first cruise and experience of Cunard how and can we become a Cunard World Club member? as we are very much looking forward to the whole expierience and hope this will be the first of many cruises. many thanks David Smith.

On 14th November '08 I asked my travel agent for fares on QM2 for the M934A cruise to NY, up and down the east coast and back to Soton and I was told that effectively there was a 2 grade upgrade. We booked B3 and were charged B5 rate.

Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
