I think it is safe to say that many of the group trips we offer have great prices. I think this is especially true of our “Bus to the Boat” program. Where can you book a one week cruise that will include your cruise, all port charges, taxes and fees AND round trip bus transportation from Las Vegas to the pier in Los Angeles all for as little $899 per person based on double occupancy? The answer is nowhere except with our VEGAS VOYAGER trips.
How do we get such low prices? We pick the dates and book our groups a long time in advance of the trip; sometimes over a year before the departure date. It’s a well known secret in the travel business that the earlier a group is booked the lower the price for that group will usually be. So I am constantly scanning the booking engines I have available to get those great low prices.
Here is an example of what I mean. You may have heard about Carnival Cruise Lines brand new ship the CARNIVAL VISTA. As I write this it is being built at a shipyard in Italy. It will not make its inaugural sailing until May 1, 2016. That’s over a year away. However, the ships schedule has already been released for its first season of European cruises between May and October of 2016. And I know how much our members like trans Atlantic cruises.
Well it turns out that the Carnival Vista will sail between Barcelona and New York for 13 nights October 13 to November 3rd, visiting Gibraltar, Ponta Delgada in the Azores and Bermuda. Our group rates for that 13 night cruise are starting at just $995 per person based on double occupancy for an inside cabin and $1595 per person for a balcony cabin and that includes all port charges, taxes and fees. These are the group prices we have for Vegas Voyagers.
So I checked on the Carnival website to see how good our rates are and the least expensive inside cabin on the Carnival Vista October 21, 2016 is pricing out at $1,795 per person and the least expensive balcony is $2,645 per person. What a huge difference. A $600 per person savings for an inside cabin and over $1000 per person savings for a balcony. WOW!
And this is what I do with all of our group cruises; I book the cruise groups early and get great low prices. There is still space on our three upcoming Buses to the Boat April 18 Crown Princess, Coastal California, August 29, Carnival Miracle Mexican Riviera and October 3rd another coastal California on the RCCL Jewel of the Seas.
The moral of the story is to book early and save a whole lot of money. This trans Atlantic cruise on the Carnival Vista will sell out. It’s not too early to book for October of 2016. Call me at 800-698-1101 for all the details.
