Thanksgiving Sale -- some agents (maybe HAL themselves) offering free gratuities for verandahs and suites

Recommended Posts

We booked our cruise onboard in July. Got prepaid gratuities on an inside cabin and extra OBC and the price has stayed the same. Not looking like there will be much for me to spend all day on the phone for. Good...lol

The cruise I want to book is jan 2021 New Zealand. I can find the reduced deposit, but not the gratuities. This is for a suite. 

 

Am I doing something wrong?

I don't think that the free gratuities shows up anywhere when booking, does it? Presumably it would be in your confirmation.

I looked up a cruise I was interested in, and strangely enough, it was priced in US dollars.  My HAL site usually shows me the prices in Canadian dollars.   I will check with my PCC tomorrow.  Price said it was good until December 3.

Hey VictOriann give that cruise ship company agency...you know, on Yates or on Millstream a call.  Just booked an Alaska Veranda with grats for first two pax and drink pkg, and OBC etc.  Not sure if it's on all trips, but the Alaska trips next summer are a deal.  On until end of day Friday the 29th.

I booked an Alaska cruise 2020 Sept, and got the drink package, but no OBC or Drink package. My TA is give me a discount, but still not as good as what you got. I haven't transferred it yet......Hmmmmm

 

It was a suite.

Well I am seeing free grats and for verandahs and suited, free drink package, at least on the May Europe sail I am looking at (this is on the HAL website)  Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Thanks, I did check, prices are about the same.  I eventually booked the TA we wanted with our PCC on the "restricted fare", which worked out at under $100 pp. pd. for an OV, and will get us where we want to be!   

 

For Alaska, we have taken to booking really last minute when the prices plummet (we live in hope! - not Hope), as it is so easy to get to Seattle or Vancouver.

I noticed those prices in some cruise center windows in Vancouver as we drove past in September  I wonder if we would be able to take advantage of them next year when we are in Vancouver for a longer stay?  We would have a 'proper' Vancouver address, but I wonder if the passports would be a problem?  Or would they look for PR cards?
