    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Hello all,

Are cruise prices pretty much the same across major travel sites or are there any ways to find great discounts on cruises? We would like to go on a 4/5/ or 7 day cruise to the caribbean departing from Galveston on or after Christmas day to return by Sunday January 3rd. I realize the prices seem to be double the sailings in early December but was curious if anyone else had any tips on finding a good deal.

Thanks!

I've had good luck with www.vacationstogo.com and Pavlus (www.cheapertravel.com). No hand-holding, but they get the job done. You can do the full booking on-line often. The few issues I've come across have been quickly and reasonably solved via a phone call.

I just used Cruise Compete to book a cruise from Rome through the Greek Islands this October. I got a better price than on the ship's website, even though I have cruised with them before and supposedly qualify for lower rates. What can be good with using Cruise Compete is that because many agents at once are providing quotes you can end up with some extras in the way of On Board Credits. This time I also got Excursion Credits.

I usually find the cruise I want first from Vacations To Go, then send in the bid request to CC.

Now I just have to find a good airfare to Rome!!!
