Do we get what we pay for?

Premium value fares! really?

Having read the latest information regarding the new premium value fares that are been introduced by P&O and Cunard, I’ve got to say I was left thinking ‘is this just another gimmick’ I really can’t understand how changing the name of the fare is going to retain people’s loyalty!
