El Cheapo Cruises Thread

Can I have a hint as where to find this?

It was on an agents newsflash . I would think its pretty general so all agents should have it . There is limited availability and you had to call for a price, but , lets cruise , even if its for just a few days.;)

Its not a cheap cruise but its now a lot less than the Cunard brochure price, and being only 5 days it doesn't sound as much. :D

A chance to spoil yourself for 5 days with out breaking the bank.:cool:

Thanks for the tips.

 

My father & brother are on this cruise from San Francisco to Sydney & this would have been a way of joining them for the last part.

 

Think it maybe a bit $$ as we are also on the Radiance in April.

 

If only work & money didn’t get in the way of cruising :mad:

What a steal , It is also quoted over here as $879NZ for Kiwis . (about the same when converted.) Very limited availability and probably all gone by now at that price.

Wow, what a bargain. Problem would be the cost of flights back to Australia at that time of year.

twin balc was $1669 - the 'issue' with these type of cruises is either GETTING to Syd or back from Auckland. Add a few hundred for a flight (or I could use some of my 300,000 QF points) - think there will be a lot of cabins left on this one

 

This cruise - Sydney - Melb - Hobart - Fiordland - Port Charlmers (Dunedin) Akaroa (Christchurch) - Tauranga - Auckland.

Airfares for me would be almost the cost of the cruise though.

From Gold Coast with Jetstar the airfares to/from Sydney/Auckland cost me a touch over $230, including 20kg baggage.

 

Considering the saving on the cruise, that's a bargain.:cool:

 

I'd be flying back home anyway, Auckland just makes for a slightly longer return leg.

The cheapest I could find was $478. I suppose it is still a good deal.

It's gone from the places I usually look. I suspect those prices disappeared just before lunch today.

 

Best I can see in Oz at the moment is $1665pp twin for a balcony.

I give up - the Princess site shows it as $1909 for an Interior and $2849 for a balcony

 

Not a big issue but disappointed I can't find it at those lower prices

The really low prices generally only last for a very short time, maybe not even hours as they are usually only for a few cabins. When you see a special, you have to grab them straight away or someone else will.

It's still there.

 

Sometimes you have to search the whole of Oz to find the right cruise.

Thank you Sinbad - I finally figured it out - and should have done so earlier if I had my wits about me. Appreciate your help

As much as I’m tempted I won’t get this one as I realised when looking at it we’ll be in the middle of the Pacific on Crystal Serenity at that time. It we weren’t I’d definitely jump on this one

 

I’m looking for bargains like this to give some other lines a try. It pays to have flexibility to do things at relatively short notice

 

Great thread and thanks to all the contributors

 

I’m still kicking myself I didn’t pick up on the tip on where to find this one earlier - just wasn’t thinking straight last night

I find that a great special comes along after you have locked in your plans to do something else so that you have to say, 'I really want to do it but can't'.

Loved my 2 little B2B Cruises on Pacific Dawn earlier this year - she had been extensively refurbished apparently - my first experience of her!
