    Why is my Cruise crossed out on the Selector?

    Carnival Breeze - 12 Day Europe From Barcelona, Spain - 10/25/2012 is crossed out and grayed out. It is a valid cruise and pricing is available on the Carnival site. Why is it crossed/grayed out in CF Selector?

    Sorry I don't have an answer but I too would like to know what that means. The cruise I am looking at is still on NCL and it is crossed out along with one two weeks before and there is plenty of room left on each. They were both available yesterday. Thanks

    ( this is my first post so if screwed up, i apologize in advance)

    Still no valid reply to this question and inquiring minds want to know ;-)

    Nice use of the image feature :-)

    Now that specific cruise

    http://www.cruisefish.net/finder.md?id_cruise=16934

    is now longer crossed out.

    Now why does this happen from time to time?

    When the CF spider (price gathering engine) encounters an error (e.g. network condition, web site unavailable, etc.) it marks some saildates as 'not updated'. They then temporarily appear as 'crossed' in the Finder. On the next run these saildates will be the first to be updated.

    As a whole, cruise line web sites are pretty unreliable and prone to acting up unexpectedly, especially on weekends where they can go in 'database maintenance' mode for hours at a time. Which seems a bit surreal in 2012.
