    Princess Pricing

    Hi, I have been trying to use CF to watch Princess pricing in US $, particularly for sailings after final payment date and just a few weeks before departure, but very often it seems that the prices shown on CF for those sailings have gone up to unrealistic high levels, shown in red, while the prices I obtain from travel agents are often much much lower, even when I go on ,say, cruisebrothers.com site and get an online quote which I would expect comes from Princess's own database. Any idea why there is such a discrepancy?

    Can you give me an example of a cruise where you see a pricing discrepancy between CF the Princess web site?

    Unfortunately I am in Europe at the moment and cannot find a way to access Princess US site.

    There are lots of anomalies I find on the Princess listing, one example currently is Pacific Princess 12 day , 16th September 2011, the BE grade in euros pricing is shown under price drops as reduced from 2474 to 1474 yet in the table its still shown at the old price.Just one representative example. When I mouse over the cells in tables generally I quite often get random different currencies instead of the correct currency, more often than not the first mousing over is incorrect and the situation can improve after that.
