    RCI/Celebrity/Azamara have a Price promise. If the price of your cruise (Cabin booked) goes down in price, right up until sail date they will refund the difference, either by reduction to your final invoice, or if you are past that point they will give it as onboard credit (OBC).

    T.C. as a general rule do not honour this price promise. Most, if not all Cruise Specialist's do.
    Wilba I cannot find the Celebrity PRICE PROMISE anywhere , either in the brochure or the booking documents . Does this apply to U.K. residents? Or only if you book in the USA? thnkyou Barbara

    We book wherever we get the best deal... Cruise 1st made me an offer I could not refuse - LA to Hawaii on the Queen Victoria via a three night stay in Las Vegas, so I added two nights in LA on our return to the west coast before our flight home...

    I always try to book with a tour operator, coz I like to create a bespoke holiday itinerary... so the cruise is just a part of the overall experience! It's also more relaxing, and eases you into your holiday better... a nice city stay for a couple of nights, perhaps take in a tour or two, then get on the ship and sail. It's also nice to have a hotel stay at the end for another couple of nights!

    I always used to book through a specialist tour operator - Voyana - but they have now been taken over by 1st4cruising. I booked my last cruise through 1st4cruising and found they were very good - cruise advisors really know their stuff, and I got a great deal. I don't think people know that they will try to beat any price given by any other agent!!! They are also part of the Hays Independent travel group, so I feel comfortable in the knowledge tat my money is always safe!

    I too have found Thomas Cook the best - they bettered the lowest internet price i found by £200.00. Just booked a P & O mini cruise but of course P & O wont let TA discount now - but very friendly helpful staff :-)

    I book whoever gives me the best price. When I booked direct with P and O, a year in advance, the price didn't come down at all, so was quite pleased. I have also booked twice with TAs.

    Our first cruise in 2005 was booked with thomsons and we went on destiny since then we have booked each cruise with cruise club uk and they have been great. They have always beat every quote we have had.....in the case of first choice last year by triple figures

    As a frequent cruiser I get mail from many cruise agents but find nowadays that many are linked to the CoOp or Thomas Cooks .
    I think Cruise.co. uk offer great deals on here as well specially last minute

    All depends on the cruise line, the volume of sales transacted by the agent and the net commission the agent will accept after sharing with you! We spend time on the net checking all sites including our friends in the USA. Last minute cruise? Start with the cruise line direct.
