    Hi Jihn
    You haven't put any prices.
    Those offers tells me they are struggling for bookings.

      BTW did Cunard not trial DPs or am I having a senior moment??

          I agree, I think they are, lots of offers out there if people look, their largest agent is based in Berkshire and has a royal connection, best place to look for deals

            The solo penalty on the Edge can be found for less than 50% - I am still not tempted though

              Hi Annie.
              There's no value in the Edge at the moment,,you could get a last minute inside for less than £900 last month.

              I think X is using the weakness of sterling to use Europe cruises as a cash cow,,,cruises from the US are cheap as chips.

              I don't like the look of the ship,but most who have sailed on her say she is a beautiful ship inside.

              The IV cabins are like marmite.

              I have my eye on Infinity next year,Venice to Rome,,,it needs a £400 price drop before I book,I can wait.

              The pound might rocket with Boris Johnson as PM..

                I have noticed I get the odd cruise line email promotions that have all the discounts and perks but not a price in site.

                If anyone thinks there is a deal they are free to post on the deals section with real pricing. 50%off is useless without the what's it off.

                And on a more inclusive cruise what is there to spend all this OBC on, give me the money off the fare.

                  As far as I am aware Cunard do have a drinks package. Currently $69 a day.

                    I never really get the I don't like the look of the ship.

                    You get to see it for a few minites each day in port on return if you get off or look back getting off.

                      Hi TD
                      Its only an opinion.I don't have to sit on the dock looking at a ship to say whether i like it or not.

                      I hate those big car carriers out of Southampton,,,but i used to love the lines of the old Manchester Liners down the Manchester Ship Canal.

                      I hate some works of art,i love others......its just an opinion.

                          Cruise lines have changed their marketing strategy quite enormously. So many of the "Deals" might come with perks and sometimes an inside cabin price but suddenly you find that Air Fares are not included.

                          They have decided to do their marketing with overwhelming gimmicks but a distinct lack of important information. I've seen better Double Glazing ads. .......Neil

                            You can blame yourself for that Neil as for ages you asked for All inclusive.

                            Well, praise indeed.....were it true

                            Do you honestly believe that someone like me could influence all cruise lines to that extent?

                            The cruise lines are changing because marketing measures require it not because they read one or three of my posts but I am proud that you hold me in such esteem,

                            Gee thanks. .....Neil

                              I got a Princess brochure through thr post last week and the prices were nothing short of ridiculous. Who would pay £2795 for a balcony 10 day Med cruise?!
