    best price RCI Caribbean cruise Jan 2013 for 10 adults?

    I have been trawling the internet to find the best price to fall within my budget of £13000 to take all my family on holiday to the Caribbean next January (to coincide with my 60th birthday). There will be 10 of us all told and would love to treat them to a memorable holiday. Any ideas for best deals?

    There is a 10 night Caribbean cruise on Vision of Seas 4th Jan which starts from £625 on RCI web site and outsides are £689. I have just checked flights with Sky scanner and Flights from London HR to FL are coming out at £565. Go to any TA and ask them to package this together for you and they should be able to discount. This will come within your budget and they should be able to offer you extra incentives for a large group. Why not give cruise.co.uk a phone call and ask the question?

    Thanks Bradbury, I will give that a go. Have already tried Iglu who could only give me a price of £1299 or £1399 per person on that cruise - no discount for large group and no obc either.

    Yes I did a bit of digging around on the net and RCI only class you as a 'Group' if you book 8 double cabins (16 pax). What you need is someone to 'Tailor Make it' for you rather than price up the RCI package with RCI flights as they are always a high price.

    If you get a good travel agent they can discount the RCI price and also will get a discount on the flights - I reckon you should be about to do this for around £1100 each easily. What I would do also is look at 2 nights pre cruise in FL allow £135 pp for 2 nights (£270 room) Still comes within your budget.

    And if you do want a hotel in FL I can recommend the Bahia Mar.

    I have just looked back at a trip we did Dec 09 for an 11 night Celebrity cruise in Balcony Cabin Equinox to Caribbean with flights and two nights at Bahia Mar Total Cost including flights was £1179 pp - all tailor made by ourselves.

    Basically you dont have to do just what the cruise line is offering. Any deviation you want -all you need to do is give it some thought and then get an expert to package it up for you. I am sure that Mark is one of the Cruise Dot agents that specialises in Tailor Made and will be able to help.
