    I received two emails from a cruise company today. QM2 sailing from Southampton 10th January 2012 first segment of the the world cruise. £1099 for 18 days. Sails to Dubai and you will get two days in a hotel in Dubai. Flights included. Very cheap!
    Now this is the cheapest I have ever seen a WC segment. Must be a sign of the times as most segments sell last minute for more than that. If I wasn't already booked on a cruise I would have gone for that myself. The other email referred to the same cruise but carried on to Singapore. Cost £1999. 35 days.
    Thanks for the latest advice Jaffa and Maggie. I'm hanging in there and watching to see what happens.

      Book early to get the best choice of cabins.
      Wait to get the chance of a better price, probably with reduced choice.

        We are not too fussy about the cabin and would rather go for the cheaper end available on most cruises. For us it means we can go on more cruises and as we started late, we have a lot of catching up to do.
        Itinerary is the number one priority for us.

As it is, we are biting the bullet flying to Hong Kong and back from Capetown. We considered sailing back to Southampton but the ports of call don't really appeal and there are too many sea days. Thanks for your input.

          Always difficult to know what to do - a couple of months ago I booked a P&O Caribbean cruise for Nov 2013 as I understand they are very popular as they include the flights, OBC and free parking. I have been watching the prices for Nov 2012 and they are £400 to £600 per person more than I have paid. But I've booked and have accepted that the price may go up or down, but I have my booking, so am happy.
          We did the Hong Kong to Singapore sector on P&O World cruise two years ago and noticed that they seem to do that Hong Kong to Capetown sector each year on one ship or another so........just depends how much of a gambler you are!

            Thanks for that. I am not really a gambler and will book if I see the cabins selling fast, which at the moment they're not.
