    NCL prices don't add up??? Not even close.

    I've been following 2 sailings on NCL over Thanksgiving week this year. One is on the 19th on the Escape and the other on the 20th on the Getaway. The CF prices show prices for balcony & mini-suite cabins well below (about $150-200) what i've been able to find anywhere online. Why? It's happened quite a few times. How do you access the rate that CF publishes?

    Re: NCL prices don't add up??? Not even close.

    Wish I could help. I have been tracking a Getaway sailing for a few months. I get a reduced fare alert from CF (as I did this monring) and dutifully check the NCL site and no change in fare.  Later the same day I usually get an update that the price had returned to 'normal'. Would also like to know the mechanism that triggered this.

    I have generally been happy with CF but this frequent 'misinformation' is a problem.

    Exactly!

     

    For example...the Epic sailing that week shows $739 for BF category on here but on NCL it's $999. Someone needs to fix this.

    I just got all excited that my February cruise dropped to $839 for my aft balacony.  NOPE.  Still $1099 on NCL.  This happened the other day too and all last month. I was getting notifications sometimes 3x a day.   What the heck is going on?  I am paying CF to watch my prices,not make stuff up! :(

    Any additional information on this?  I, too, see a significant price drop on the cruise I booked; however, NCL price is not the same. It is much more!

    I've been tracking NCL cruises for a couple of weeks. It seems that even the Epic prices are way off. So the 3 major NCL ships all show prices hundreds of dollars lower than what they actually are.

     

    CF staff care to chime in or are you just here to make sure we buy credits for alerts so you make money?

    I have noticed this too with my med sailings.  I thought it was purely down to NCL messing with their prices in the middle of the night on purpose so that we cannot use tracking software.  I also follow them through another site and it's exactly the same there.

    Wow, I never would have  thought of that. I would hope that iit is not the case, but that's pretty low if it's true.

    So nobody from CF wants to answer??? All the rates are jacked up.

    It is weird. Today, CF showed a great price increase for all categories on NCL Sun Nov. 19 sailing. I checked their site and found that the prices had bnot budged. And now the Finder link is not working at all.

    Guess what? Another price change listed on CF...and nothing on any other website. Are they pulling these numbers out of a hat and hoping people will fall for their scam?

    seems like NCL is kinda shady on pricing. in other words lowering just long enough to get people interested

    NCL isn't changing anything. It's CF that's shady.
