    Newsflash

    Did you also receive an email today with a big red banner announcing NEWSFLASH - Cancelled 5* Luxury Cabins in the Med. What on earth does it mean? Are they saying that these cabins have been cancelled by cruisers? Or is someone just trying to get my attention. Beryl

    P&O web site only shows the free flights on Select fares.

    Pick the saver fare sure enough they are included for those as well.

    Wonder how many book the select thinking the flights are only available that way.

    I nearly got excited by this Lacey, then I realised it was not Oceania! Thought it was too good to be true.

    Yes I did, late yesterday afternoon from Cruisedot about E Med cruises on Azamara Journey. I'm afraid it went in the bin!

    Princess still want £999 for the insides but I have noticed that they are one of the lines that does seem to offer cabins out cheaper through TA.

    They have some very high pricing this year was looking at Round Britain over £1k, last year they sold them off at £399 with OBC to captains club members.

    CD have this cruise at the same price although live availability does not seem to be working.

    www.CRUISE.co.uk | BRITISH ISLES - Princess Cruises - Caribbean Princess - 9th May 2015 - 14 nights
    This cruise is still being advertised on a competitor's site at £799 inside cabin, £849 outside, £1,199 balcony, £1,599 mini suite. Price for an inside family cabin 2 adults, 2 children £1,795.

    I would guess it could be the well known agent who has already emailed you.

    [QUOTE=ROSEBASKETS,

    I received an email from them last night and I know for a fact that the particular cruise I'm looking at has NEVER been on sale at the price and I challenge them to prove anyone has paid the price they quoted.[/QUOTE]

    I have to disagree with you RB. We received a flyer for a Tailor Made trip to Australia and New Zealand and thought it too good to be true. When Alan 'phoned Tracey, the only difference was that we did not get the transfer from home to airport as the distance was too great. The holiday was a outstanding success and at the price quoted.

    Ship: Azura (A506N)
    Line: P&O Cruises
    From Barbados20th Mar 2015 (14 Nt Fly Cruise)

    • Transfer from Southampton to Manchester included





    Insides from £1,049 pp£749 pp
    Outsides from £1,089 pp£799 pp
    Balconies from £1,499 pp£999 pp
    Singles from £1,849 pp

    Balcony cabins were down to £899 last weekend for a period of 24 hours. Managed to grab one. However flights are on 21st. Could not justify £250pp (at the time) for one extra night in Barbados.

    That sounds like a genuine P&O fare with solo fare more than double the price of an inside cabin yet only 1 seat on the aircraft is required

    Cruisedots emails and prices on their web site are at best out of date by the time they are posted or sent or at worst figments of imagination created by the marketing department to entice potential passengers to enquire. I have contacted them twice this year and asked about the price shown on a particular cruise, the price is NEVER the advertised price, but they blame "fluid pricing" so can't be held accountable.

    I received an email from them last night and I know for a fact that the particular cruise I'm looking at has NEVER been on sale at the price and I challenge them to prove anyone has paid the price they quoted.
    Now where is that like button??
