Warning - while Cruise.com usually meets or beats the direct booking price, for some reason, the direct book price with Princess is close to $500 pp LESS than Cruise.com, even with their "specials".
I say this because I have spent an inordinant amount of time staring at sailings and prices the last few weeks and have many years experience using Cruise.com as my "price point guide" to choose a sailing, and then book direct with the line. Check that same sailing with princess.com and make sure it comes in higher before falling for a "coupon book".
I know for a fact you can save a tiny bit on Cruise.com with the other lines, but not enough for me to give up booking direct. I don't like the middle man. I may make an exception though, as the HAL sailing I booked a few hours ago is about $600 less on cruise.com. That's enough for me to cancel and rebook IF I choose HAL.
Princess is coming is an the "price leader", at nearly a full $1K less than the other sailings. And I managed to get "fixed" early seating and a great cabin. Soooo many variables, so little time left to decide, but I digress. Anyways, always check with direct booking price before giving cruise.com your deposit.
Your're so funny Joanne...between 3:30-4:30p (as they know) it woud spoil my diinner and besides, I'm napping in my cabin with my face mask on in preparation of happy hour...and I never waste my appetite on plain old ice cream for dessert at dinner.
I think the one time I tried Scoops was for an chocolate milk shake (which I adore) and it was pretty bad...LOL...didn't go back.
Cie la vie, far more important things to find on the ship, like hot officers....X(
