Some cruise lines offer upgrades to undercut passengers

Date Posted: 24 Dec 2008

Many cruise lines are saying that they do not want to undercut passengers with their own prices as the cost of some ferry holidays are falling.

As a result, many companies are now offering to honour current, discounted fares by offering passengers a cabin upgrade.

Joanne Schimelman, vice president of national accounts with Royal Caribbean International, said: "Our policy is that if you book early you should be confident that you will pay the best price for the cruise and the best value."

As extra reassurance, she added: "We will protect the rate up to 24 hours prior to the sailing if it goes down."

However, Holland America Line said that it is usually up to the customer or the travel agent to alert the cruise line about the change in the fare price.

In related news, Holland America recently announced that it is to increase the number of cruises it operated to Bermuda to 24.ADNFCR-657-ID-18947237-ADNFCR

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
