We aren't allowed to use the names of travel agencies on Cruise Critic.

 

But I can tell you that Princess Cruises has its own website where the 5th Mar cruise is $199pp and the 10th Mar cruise is $159pp.

Not exactly El Cheapo , but for anyone looking for something different ,  Cunard are doing deals on QE leaving  Sydney April 1 {no,not an April Fools Day joke) and arrives in Yokohama on 19th April . Diamond Princess leaves on that same day for an 8 day  cruise from/to Yokohama ...could do a B2B on 2 different ships and then fly home.

Very good price.

Wish I could do it.

HAL has had a few well priced (after final payment) cruises this season.

Booking directly with the cruise line almost guarantees that you will pay more and get less.

 

Right now, that Ovation OTS cruise in listed on a major cruise consolidator website for $815pp for an inside along with $125 in OBC, $815pp for an OV with $125 in OBC,  and $821pp for a balcony with $175 in OBC.

Is that an Australian or American website?

If it's American, then once you add in fees and taxes and make the exchange rate conversion, it actually works out more expensive.

 

Then there is the reduced OBC.
