Lots of cruisers wait until the last moment before booking. I was on a ship a few years back having paid for my cruise,inside cabin, 6 weeks prior to sailing and paid £800 for 2 weeks (which I thought was a good deal) Imagine my surprise when speaking to a fellow passenger who had booked just 2 days before sailing and was in a suite for £300!. No kidding, I saw the suite, fantastic.

Sorry, as I said it was a few years ago. Thnk it was P & O in the Med. But I can't remember the exact date 'cos I cruise a couple of times a year usually May/June and Sept/Oct to various places. I never book through a travel agent (high street shop). I deal always on line or teletext and I play one agent off against the other. I've had some great deals, The only problem I have is that as I cruise with a party of 8 it's more difficult to get 'last minute deals' so I daren't wait until 2 or 3 days before the sailing date. But like I said this passenger managed to get a £300 siuite through waiting to the last minute.

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. 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...

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
