    Where are all these price drops?
    Not seeing any in my emails yet.

    I see a couple of RCI 7n under £300 but that is normal range for those.

    Celebrity Constellation prices are holding up over £1k

      We're thinking of popping over to KL and we rather like Emirates.

      I've registered for an email alert from the F.O. for immediate updates on Dubai's status. The Ukraine Airlines disaster has me thinking a teeny bit, but unless ''things'' really escalate, it's not enough to stop us booking although we'll wait a bit to suss out the situation and hopefully get a price drop.

          Trump hass backed off from his previous threats so hopefully they have both done enough now to save face.

            I predict another change of plans for Oceana next winter. Personally I would not want to be cruising anywhere near this region.

              I think I might chose an airline not based in the UAE.

                The only other airline which immediately springs to mind is Singapore.

                We used to use S'pore like a HoHo bus company donkey's years ago and we used them last year. Quoting the age old phrase ''things ain't what they used to be''. Crew were, as usual, fantastic; the two seats I rejected should have been serviced before the journey. I wasn't impressed although I did get a quite al large amount to spend onboard from the flight shopping brochure, as a ''sorry''.
                We like Emirates. We like their planes and crew and we're quite happy breaking up the flight. Like many other airlines, Emirates are keeping out of Iraq/Iran airspace so, we'll watch and see.

                  If intelligence says it is unsafe, the ships will not go. Their insurance would not be valid.

                        Latest US media reports suggest Iran 'mistakenly' shot down the plane with a missile ?

                          All the pricing I am seeing across a lot of sites look like normal early year prices coupling with the cheap flight season including the US sites.
                          The gulf has always been cheap this time of year.
