I just received "lead in" (pricing for just 1 of each category) for both sailings! The Government taxes are still to be determined so I have estimated them off of this year...

July 4th

D5 - $1259.00
C2 - $1468.00
B5 - $1515.00
P2 - $2940.00
Q6 - $3795.00
Add estimated Taxes & Fuel Surcharge: $70.00

Christmas

D5 - $3843.00
C2 - $4199.00
B5 - $4270.00
P2 - $7880.00
Q6 - $13295.00

Add Estimated Taxes & Fuel Surcharge: $170.00

As soon as the other categories are available I will post them. We have a revised booking date of April 17th at 8:00am so try to have your booking forms in by April 16th at noon if at all possible. I will be working to firm up some of the pre-cruise activities over the next couple of days so you can figure that in.

I hope to have hotel & transfer information for the pre-cruise packages together by Saturday and will see what I can find out about additional pricing information as well. So check back on Saturday!

Nina, I just want clarification...

You are going to block cabins, so, even if we have relatives that are on the fence, they should send in booking forms to hold a certain cabin type but, not necessarily a specific cabin.

In other words, what I'm trying to ask... My cousin and her husband are thinking about the 4th of July but, don't want to commit to putting down a deposit yet. Do they still need to send in a booking form?

Hope I didn't confuse you too much


Thanks for the email alert about the pricing Nick!!

I've made a note for you Vic Smile

Dawn, I need the booking forms for a more firm cabin count. So yes, they can request a certain cabin category and I will make sure to include it in the count. They are under no obligation to actually book a cabin but it helps me to have one "set aside" for them it if they do want to book. If their booking form is in I will keep it earmarked for them for as long as possible.

Now, if you want cabins next to one another I would suggest they put a deposit down on one and release it later if they have too.

Oh this is so exciting! And, yes, another thank you to Nick for the email notice! Nina, not that I plan on booking it but, I'm always curious to know the price of the Duplex apartments. I doubt I'd book one even if I could afford it... I just like being nosey! Laughing

Nina, if we don't want to put our credit card information on the booking form, is it ok to send in everything else and then call you with that information?

Yes Derek that is perfectly ok. The most important information is:

Proper names for all parties
Cabin preferences
If you need air, pre/post stay or insurance

If you will not be using the online booking form to submit your payment you can call or email to request a credit card authorization form. It will be sent immediately and you just need to sign it and fax or email it back. It is my policy to have this form in house prior to charges being made to your card.

Nina, when do expect to have the full package together? Any chance it is this weekend? Leanna and I are attending a wedding tomorrow and, I'd love to be able to pass out the information tomorrow or Sunday morning. If not, that's ok, I'll just send out an email to friends and family when you are ready Wink

Perhaps something in the Spring on the Queen Victoria? Something that those who can not attend the the QE Inaugural sailing could do? The Med maybe? Might depend on the what itinerary the QE ends up doing as I know there are those of us who would want to do both.


Nick, I am still working with the hotels to get quotes. Their pricing is not out yet for 09 so they are trying to come up with close estimates. Same for the transportation companies. Based on this year's prices this is what I have so far:

Transportation from the hotel to dinner, the show, back to the hotel and then from the hotel to Red Hook the next day (one way) is estimated at $45.00 per person.

Estimated hotel prices:

Library Hotel in July

Full bedded room: $292.00
Queen Bedded room: $350.00
Junior Suite King Bd/Sofa bed: $462.00

Library Hotel in December
Full bedded room: $489.00
Queen Bedded room: $603.00
Junior Suite King Bd/Sofa bed: $716.00

Casablanca Hotel in July
Full bedded room: $399.00
King bedded room: $433.00
2 Doubles:$489.00
Mini-Suite: $569.00

Casablanca Hotel in December
Full bedded room: $569.00
King bedded room: $535.00
2 Doubles:$591.00
Mini-Suite: $637.00

The hotels include breakfast, an evening cocktail party (which will be fun for a pre-dinner meet up) internet, all day snacks and coffee and a few other perks.

Use this as a guide until I have more firm information Smile

Alex we must be in the same mind set, I was just wondering if the rooms have been blocked and if so, how it's going to be handled. In other words, do we need to place a deposit for the hotel the same time as the cabins or how it's all shaping up.

I know you're busy getting all this information ready for us Nina, so no rush. Just let us know when you're ready!

Alex & Eddie,

The hotels are still trying to come up with pricing for us and I will post as soon as it is in. However, no, you do not have to deposit for the hotel at the time of booking your cabin. Just make a note if you want to book a hotel on the form so I can get back with you about it later.

Nina, a non-pressing question. We'll probably AMTRAK down since it's actually easier than fighting the airport security and we probably don't want to drive. Do you book AMTRAK? No big deal if you don't, I know the Northeast routes aren't big on paying commission so if it's easier for us to book independently, we will but, just want to give you the chance to earn extra commission if it something that would interest you.
