    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.

    Unless you are the queen of shoppers you will use one tenth of the coupons in the book at best

    Yes, just to throw my =twocents in, the coupon books that the cruise lines give out, are pretty useless. You may use one or two, but that is it. What a waste of paper, and trees, they are, too.

    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(
     
  11. Would anyone have the 2 for 1 coffee coupon? I'd also like the dvd and photo coupons, if you have them. I will be on the Golden Princess this July 18.
