Cruise deposits on the up and balances required sooner

It has recently come to my attention that Complete Cruise Solution who run P&O, Cunard and Princess cruises are making some changes to their booking conditions that will soon effect everyone.

I already did a blog not so long ago about how Complete cruise solution have deceided that they are doing away with travel agent discounting.

They have now said said that all cruises booked on their 2012 programme from 1st June 2011 will now require a 15% deposit (instead of the current 10%) and that the balance of the cruise must be paid 1 month sooner than it is required currently.

Whether this will make any difference to people making their decisions in booking, only time will tell. 

They certainly have been making some big changes in recent times.

How do you feel about the changes that Complete Cruise Solution are making ?
