    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Because P&O have gone up so much for next year we have been looking at Azamara, they come out good value because it includes every thing, glad we booked Dubai last year for next March, perhaps the fly cruises are better value but we like sailing from Southampton and back however not at the cost of another cruise. Just my opinion as usual

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Thats similar rise that our Baltic Cruise we booked has gone up. We booked in April this year at £4164 now same grade cabin is showing at £5312 ,the difference will cover quite a few drinks and tours....Davybe

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Aurora's prices nearly always go up, we booked our April cruise this year at launch in Sept 2017 and our balcony cabin had doubled in price just before we sailed. For some reason she is extremely popular and P&O's fluid pricing will keep increasing prices as long as there is a strong demand. The moral of the story, book early on Aurora and Arcadia if you want the best prices.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    £1200 each for auto grats is an awful lot of nights on a cruise....

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    I do so agree we went on the Aurora in June, the price went up by £500 each, but the same cruise next year has gone up by £1200 each think that is because the grants have come off, just my opinion as usual

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    With some of the excellent prices and discounts offered on brochure release these last 2-3 yrs you cannot really expect much more than minimal OBC or free coach/car parking. I know as far as we are concerned the free car parking offered with CPS for a 14 nt cruise is over £150 so cannot be complained about. We did a recent cruise on Britannia for 14 nts to the Med free car parking for 14nts and with extra TA discount paid only £900pp for highest grade inside cabin which was an excellent price and sure the equivalent prices for higher grade cabins was just as good.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    With recent P&O launch prices being reasonable, compared with the last years, and with 10% off for past passengers and sometimes an extra 5% if its a Peninsular cruise and even a reduced deposit, then we have rarely seen a launch price bettered. However there is generally only the minimal OBC, coach or car park offer at launch.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    We sometimes do the same ,no guarantee but more often than not we have got decent price, you can get a late bargain, but having missed out on a cruise through waiting for the price to drop,I book when I am happy with the deal...Davybe

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    I agree with Towny - weak exchange rates, increased oil prices and inflation all add to the price of excursions. We usually book as soon as cruises are released as they often increase by as much as £1,000 pp.
  11. towny44

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Yes shore excursion increases will be mainly due to the weak exchange rate, P&O have to pay for these locally so will need to pass on the exchange rate fluctuation.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Prices have always fluctuated and usually increase until closer to the cruise when depending on how well the cruise is selling whether they offer lower prices around the 12 week time when balances are due.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    Hi, we are due to go on Arcadia in October which we booked on brochure release and it is now £800 per person more, like someone said earlier, that's another holiday! I have noticed the excursions going up though. I went to the Caribbean with my daughter in January and have just booked for the same cruise next January the excursions have come out and they all seem to have gone up, some by £6, one by £15.

    P&O prices on the Rise??

    always booked holidays be they a cruise or beach holiday on the premise of see it like it book it knowin full well prices can rise and fall. never go searching in the weeks after and then moaning if the price drops. I got the holiday I wanted at the price I was prepared to pay. that's it.

    What a win

    Well all I can say is people can shout their mouths off all they likes but it won't change the result. In all sports around the world there's always an element of luck and misfortune, England on this occasion had the rub of the green and are world champions, New Zealand played an exceptional part and their true sportsmanship and professionalism has shone through following it, which is a great example of how sport should be played both when winning or in defeat. The likes of Simon Taufel are obviously green with envy of our achievements hence their comments, never mind eh they are the losers unlike us HLM.

    The Retreat on Azura

    My Mum paid for the retreat on a Caribbean cruise and really enjoyed it. Like yourself, Mum loves the sun but my step dad prefers the shade so they found this perfect. they are going on Azura again in Feb and will use the retreat again. hope this helps :)

    What a win

    ive been on quite a few forums following the cricket and the awful comments following taufels stirring are horrendous, however when you look at those complaining and making a fuss, they are all either indian,australian or scottish. not a kiwi among them. i think the kiwi skipper and his team have handled themselves impeccably given the way lady luck conspired against them. given taufel is on the icc rules committee he should have kept his mouth shut and dealt with it internally through the umpires system but its no suprise really given his history against england and the ashes coming up later hes obviously getting his digs in early. he wasnt keen when people highlighted errors he made during his carreer.

    What a win

    We will never know, but again, well done England, you did us proud.
  22. towny44

    What a win

    Yes a clear mistake made, however it would still have left Ben Stokes with 2 balls to make 4 runs, so who is to say he would not have hit a boundary and won it without the need for a super over?
  23. Oldworldtraveller

    What a win

    A fabulous win that at one point I gave up hope of seeing but in the end , well done England, you did us proud. Has anyone else read this and what do you think? https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/cricket/england-were-incorrectly-awarded-extra-run-in-world-cup-final-after-umpire-error-claims-simon-taufel-a4189906.html

    What a win

    Bet some need new remotes after Sunday....Davybe
  26. towny44

    What a win

    Yes we watched it and what a great match Dayybe, I thought we had bl;own it several times especially after New Zealands 6 in the super over, what a Topsy Turvy game it was. As for Wimbledon and the Grand Prix we watched those as well, in fact the TV remote has never worked harder.

    The Retreat on Azura

    Welcome to the forum Thespian. P&O do not give any prices on the web site(That I can Find) but googling it it looks like you will have to pay around £170-£200 for using it for 14 days, but day passes are available on a first come basis. Hope you can get a better answer....Davybe
