Upgrade those flights

Hope you are all well and having fun cruising the world, I know I am having fun booking them for you, so today I am not going to talk about cruising but about flying, yes that one element of a holiday that most of us have to endure, yes it can be a right pain and if any of you are like me and absolutely hate flying then this is what you must do.

Finally

Greetings cruisers

Me again, hope you are all doing well and enjoying booking and cruising your favourite destinations. So I come to you with news us agents have been telling cruise lines for so many years, why not include the drinks and tips in the full price of the cruise. For so many years this has been falling on deaf ears, it was just so frustrating to offer a price to a customer and then continue with “the gratuities and drinks are extra” this used to put so many people off, all they wanted was a price that included everything, they were not interested in a price and then having to be told the extras.

Get me away now

Greetings cruisers

I hope everyone is well and enjoying the break in the weather, I know I certainly am, so it’s been 2 weeks since I last updated my blog and I can’t believe how busy it has been.Strangely everyone seems to love our Tailor Made offers, and so they should, with such amazing itinerary’s travelling to some great places. I know if I could ever get enough time off and enough money together I would be coming with everyone. Sadly that’s not going to happen in the very near future.

2019 Already

Greetings cruisers

Yep it’s that time again where I add another blog to my collection, So it’s the Middle of March 2017 already and the cruise lines are all ready to release their late 2018/ 2019 cruises. Now I am not getting any younger but really…………….would I want to be putting down a large deposit on a cruise that is not departing for another 2 years? I guess it’s a clever ploy by the cruise lines to build up excitement and try and get as many people filling the berths as quickly as possible. Ok I’m certainly not knocking this system, there are plenty of people that like to get their cruises booked well in advance and have done with it. Too be fair the cruise lines do offer some great benefits for people booking so early and the prices can be very good as well. I would be just a little worried I might not be around in 2019 !!! Yes I know that sounds very negative but you know what, it is very possible circumstances change and I might not be able to make the cruise, there goes a whole load of well earn’t money spent on a deposit down the drain.

Fawlty Towers or Four Star

Greetings Cruisers

Yep it’s me again, wow it feels so much longer than the 2 weeks since my last blog, anyways I hope you are all well and booking those cruises. So I thought I would touch on hotel standards this time, this can be a total mine field, and I seriously recommend you do your home work before deciding on one. Let me give you an example of how difficult it can be.

Flights get exactly what you want

Greeting Cruisers

WOW, we are already well into January and you are all booking cruises like crazy, that is great news:)

So, I would like to talk about fly cruises this time, yep we all know it’s a right pain, but there are ways of making it just a little easier and smoother for you. So let me begin……………………………….First thing I will say is try not to book your cruise with flights that are offered through the cruise line, yes they will offer you the transfers included and protect you if there is ever a delay and they will hold up the ship for you, that’s all well and good but too be fair nowadays flight delays are quite uncommon and I can’t even remember a time when any of my customers have had the pleasure of being cheered as they walk up the gangway, obviously because everyone else is already on board and the captain has made an announcement of some delayed passengers. Anyways where was I, oh that’s right, flights booked through the cruise line as an all inclusive package. Well did you know that when you agree to this the cruise line can book you any flight they care to, even if it means countless connections. The cruise line are only obligated to get you to their cruise ship on time, so obviously they are going to book the cheapest option. Even once the flights are organised and you have the flight times, these can change at any time. Does not sound so good now does it? Yes they will offer you the transfers but would you really want to fly from London to Venice with a connection in Paris for example? No I would not either. So if you are looking for a fly cruise make sure you let the agent exactly what you want, direct flight, certain airline etc, they will find this for you including transfers and all this will probably end up cheaper anyways. Remember we are experts, we know what to look out for, what you as a consumer expect and will get you exactly what you want.

Get on it for 2017

Greetings followers (that’s if I actually have any!)

A very happy New Year to you all, let’s hope it is even better than last year, cruising has never been more popular and right now all the cruise lines have released all their January deals, (Just reading that back makes me sound like the bloke from the Furniture adverts of the tv !) but these cruise offers are the real deal, not these fake sales the furniture stores seem to run all year round.So if  you are thinking of booking a cruise for 2017, please take a look at all the great offers available right now, from free drinks packages, free car parking, from on board benefits like free WIFI, and even a whole load of additional On Board Credit to spend on anything you like once you are on board (I seem to be using On Board quite a lot) but you get the drift I’m sure.
