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.

I mean an Aqua Theatre on a cruise ship! This extravaganza...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...
