    Iglu are 899 - 0208 544 6620
    Cruise are 899 plus 200 on board spend - Freephone 0800 091 4308

    A quick scan of TXT 228 the 14n caribbean deals are appearing just under the 1kpp for the pre Xmas period(Oct->Dec).

    P&O Azura and ventura both show the 999 for some dates, any TA should be able to get these prices or better

    There is a report on the cruises forum of a Xmas deal on Sea Princess in an AC for under 1500. not sure about this one princes show ACs sold out.

    Thomson Dream TA 15n 6 Dec 699 Southampton, fly back



    The RCI Independence 18n round trip Southampton med cruises in Jan/Feb should also be available with a bit of shopping around at 900 so the magic 50pppd , RCI direct prices are around 1k.

    Cruise and Maritime which run the Marco Polo out of Tilbury have a few deals.

    direct http://www.cruiseandmaritime.com

    The one that caught my eye on TXT was the canaries 14n 16 Oct at 599 or less through a TA.

    the other ship the ocean countess also has some good pricing.

    Xmas and New year are usualy peak dates so prices tend to reflect the demand from families.

    Also not a lot of choice ex UK with no flying.

    RCI independence has lead in price of 1499pp direct
    (5% discount on cruise fare if booked on-line or should get 5% OBC with a phone booking),

    TAs should be able to get this down to under 1350pp (10%+ discount) that will cover the grats.

    21st Dec -8th Jan 18 nights so depending on the local school dates this may be within the school holidays or only require a couple of days off.

    Check they include the tips(54) at that price.

    My total was 290.83(cruise with tips) + 119.50(flight inc bag and CC charge)

    Total 410.33pp booking direct with X and EJ.

    Just checked and the inside GTY is now an allocated ocean view chance my luck and see if they will upgrate to a balcony for the OV->balcony difference 60.

    Spotted on TXT 228

    P&O Oriana world cruise sectors are now on offer through various agents

    Best value seems to be 15Nov 32night Hong Kong to Southampton at 1300 including the overnight flight and 1 night hotel(30n cruise).

    This is well under the 50pppn. factor out the cost ofthe flight and hotel probably under 30pppn

    more details of the cruise

    Other shorter parts of this at various other prices.

    RCI have dropped the Independance early 2011 prices.

    8 Jan and 26Jan ex southampton 18 Nights now start at 829 through most TA's

    Thats under the 50pppn allthough that will not include the tips or parking.

    Direct with RCI the price is a bit more.

    Another P&O deal,

    Azura 14n Caribbean 799.

    13th, 26th, 27th Nov including LGW flights.

    This one has been a round for a while still 22 cabins for the 26th(as of 8am 10th Nov).

    They were doing 4pax for under 2k(inc flights) but this sold out while I was away(on a cruise).

    EDIT:
    Add to these the Ventura on the 3rd,4th dec
    Outside GTY at 799 so a chance at a balcony or pay 899.
