I found following offer:
RCCL Transatlantic Cruise Apr 08
1 person in one cabin 1300 Dollar total and
2 persons in one cabin (same type) 800 Dollar total.

What will happen, when I book for two people (800 instead of 1300), and when boarding the ship, I will tell them, the second person is sick?

I think you better double check if the $800 is a per person rate.

Yes, 800 is for two people in one cabin.
If there is only one person in the cabin the price is 1300.
It's true.
Maybe they reduced the price for the cabins, and they forgot to reduce the price for single cabin??
Thx

They figure two people will spend more onboard than one.

rcclfan,

I guess you are right.
But what will they do, when I book for two, and travel alone?
Will they charge my credit card with an extra amount?
Will they send me peeling potatoes in the kitchen?

$800. per person X 2 passengers = $1600. for a double occupancy cabin. If it's only $400. per person for double occupancy, the single occupancy cabin should come to $800. There would only be tax and fuel sur-chg on one instead of two going alone. They do sometimes have a small penalty for traveling but not a $500. difference. There is an error somewhere in someone's math for this. I'd check it again and ask for an explanation.

Cheers, Neil

And if you do find out that your original prices were correct (I doubt it but strange stuff happens) I'd book 2 and find someone to go with you OR stick to the original plan....

In my surfing for cruises, I have found that when looking at cruises online, they show you what it will cost ONE person not for the entire cabin. Once you book the cruise, if you select two people you will be charged $1600. Look for that dreaded "pp" (per person) after the price. But I think that is a good price either way for a transatlantic.

Marcom, because I am an ANALyst by trade and I have never been on RCCL's website, I decided to investigate. If I found what you found, the room categories are different. The deal category was not available to single cruisers.

My apologies for my skepticism.

Prices are always a Per Person rate. Cabins are sold as double occupancy. If you travel alone, you'll have to pay for double occupancy. The trans-atlantic cruise on the Navigator has inside cabin for $449 pp. That's a 14 night cruise! I always heard there are some good deals on trans-atlantic cruises, but I never would believe there would be this good of a deal!
