    Newbie free loading English looking for early buy handouts

    by ollyhills » Tue May 16, 2017 2:10 pm

    Ahoy y'all.

    My buddy and I shall be coming out next year for the first time and I was wondering - are the cheapest rooms likely to have sold out once the gold and silver survivors have had their go? And if that's the case what would the chances be that someone who has one of these magical codes and won't be going might be willing/able to donate it to a good cause?

    Been wanting to come since day one so I SERIOUSLY don't wanna wind up getting priced out now all the pieces have finally fallen into place!

    Cheers guys! :mrgreen:

    Likelihood cheapest cabins sell out for gold veterans:
    Pretty much 100% I'd say, silver vets I don't think stand a chance even.
    For this year I was a few hours late for gold vets to book a twin cabin at cheapest price, they were already gone.

    As for using a code as someone else vet, don't think this work, the vet using the code needs to be primary/lead passenger and have responsibility for the remaining passengers when it comes to payment (I think).

    Best bet I'd say is don't make up a budget looking at the cheapest prices for the cabins.

    There are options. You could each book a single ticket in a room with others for pretty cheap. You spend very little time in your cabin, I assure you. This gets you one cruise under your belt and you'll at least have silver the following year.

    Either way, whatever it takes... get on board man. It's worth whatever sacrifices you have to make. It's all I look forward to all year long.

    Repeating what some others have said...basically, add a few hundred per-person to your mental budget for the cruise and have your buddy do the same. The price difference between the "cheapest" staterooms and what may be available when you can book is likely to be around $200-300 per person...but probably not more than $300. Last year, bookings finally opened around mid-July, so -- with luck -- you might have that kind of timeframe to save up the money.
    You could also look in the "Roommates" sub-forum here to see if any previous survivors have any openings for two people in their bookings.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the requirement to be a gold cruiser gets bumped up to 5 years this time or next. The pool of 3 year cruisers must be pretty big by now.

    I doubt that they would change the Gold category like that, but I could see a Platinum category added.
