    Purchase when?

    Normally, when is the best time to buy?

    The earlier the better.  Particularly if you're watching prices and will call to receive price drops should they occur.  

     

    Sometimes you'd get the best price by booking very late (after final payment is due) but that would be very unlikely on this sailing as it's during school vacation week and likely to sell out.

    I agree....the earlier the better, then watch the prices and hope for a drop.  However, I have watched our prices go up, up, up!

    I agree with the previous posts. Much easier to watch prices drop that you will get back than watch the price rise on something you have not yet purchased. Just be sure that the Line/Rate you book has some form of price protection.
