includes filghts so hot from me

Anything else on board the ship included? How much spending money do you need on a week long cruise?

You need money for tips and booze, basically. All your food (which is excellent btw) is paid for.

Cruises are great :thumbsup:

HOT - if you can tolerate americans. :-D :w00t: :whistling: :-D ;-)

Great price, the QM2 is fantastic. Worth the money alone just for the food. Mmm, I remember the surf and turf, lobster tail and fillet steak!

tips are normally added automatically to your account (but you can adjust them), its usually about £10 per person per day.

Booze is usually around £2.60 a pint

seems a great price but read reviews about this company which i just have and it has put me off booking which i seriously thought about shame looks good

That is an absolute bargain if you don't mind wearing formal trousers for a week and the smell of wee.

the following is one of many bad reviews for jetline . After reading the above review can only agree that we have experienced many problems with this company, after a holiday from hell in sept/oct 2007 we are still trying to get jetline to make proper contact and read our letters of complaint correctly. Have had to make phone calls to them and never get an email response either, customer services has jetline heard of them

:-D:p

Looks like the cruise is just basically a relocation sail back across the Atlantic. Doesn't sound like it would be too much fun in the first week of January. Weather will be shocking too.

In fact, looking at Cunard's own site, it seems that you will basically be sat on the boat at the start of its 108 day proper cruise, getting bumped off at Southampton where they will pick up any Brits to add to the Americans going on the main cruise:

Fail to see why thats a problem ? They will still treat you the same as any other guest, you'll probably just be jealous youve got to get off and let someone else have your cabin! :-)

Hot Deal - just need a lottery win, and time off from work in January!!

no ports to stop at or sights to see. No nice weather to enjoy on deck. Seas choppy given the time of year. You will just be cooped up in a tiny cabin coming out for food and on board entertainment.

Not my idea of a great holiday, but I suppose some might enjoy it.

Value for money.Customer Service.Have you booked through this tour operator before?No..Terrible company. Incorrect pricing - take all of your credit card details then call you back and say it is not available. We wasted a whole evening messing about on the phone to Jetline Travel - and the cost went up by £700.

Value for money.Customer Service.Have you booked through this tour operator before?No..Booked a 2week stay in Egypt for myself and my partner back in december with Jetline Travel, we had paid for a 5star all inclusive hotel, and paid to stay in one of the suites. Just rang the hotel to confirm the booking, after reading some worrying reviews on tripadvisor, and have been told that we do not have a suite and one is not available. Waste of time and money, do not use jetline travel!

So what? Fantastic value for a cruise on a 5 star ship plus two nights in a 4 star hotel in Manhattan (that could cost £400 alone).

Is it jealousy or do some people just love to pick holes in things that they don't like/can't afford etc etc?

Yes that right I went on a cruise about 8 years ago and I think tips are about $12.50 a day :w00t:.. At least when I went the tips were included in the price

Departing from NY must be amazing in a Cruiseship, yes it will be cold but the view will probably make for it.

I was on NY last Christmas and it was bloody cold we spent 2 hours in the queue to get in the Statue of Liberty boats and because it was so cold there was no floor in the park we were walking on ice, really bad, but the experience is very good. 5min around the Statue and on the way bck :x

The cruiseship inside must be amazing, cruiseships are like massive hotels around 7 or 8 floors so I doubt you will get bored there.

eh? what are you talking about? The purpose of the messageboard is for people to share opinions on different deals. In my opinion, it doesn't sound like much fun being sat indoors on a ship for 7 days with shocking weather and no stops to enjoy. Sorry if my opinion doesn't suit. :thumbsup:

Whats wrong with that??

Depends what you like to do If eating, reading and relaxing is your thing then you'll have a ball.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner (all included) will be top notch chow. In between that, if you're hungry, you can eat sandwiches, snacks etc.

In between meals, there are spas, swimming, gyms, librarys, internet, films, shows, shops, courses, casinos.

Seven days in what's effectively a full board 5* hotel. Plus a flight to, and a couple of days in, NY. Got to be a cracking deal :thumbsup:

There's more to a cruise ship than the inside of your cabin. A flight and 2 night stay in a 4 star hotel in NY would set you back about £400 so for an extra £299 a 7 day cruise in 1 of the worlds finest cruise ships seems like a pretty amazing deal to me. Who cares if its cold outside there's plenty to do and some great food to enjoy.

Not a bad price, just wish I had money :roll:

If you are in your honeymoon then this sound quite interesting :whistling:.

If you are single then you might meet one of those rich "Americans" and who knows you might continue in the 108days trip and you are sort it for the rest of your life.

Ive got the money, just got 3 kids to get rid of and im on my way !! :-)

The whole 108 day cruise looks amazing though, I wish I had £32k and the time available for me and the wife to do it.

Is Iceberg spotting included:roll:

This is a great bargain. I'm off to New York for a few days next month. Flights £330PP Hotel 4* £100 per night.
I was also on acruise out of NY last year and it was amazing. Best thing about it (as mentioned above by someone) was the food. It was top class. I don't know how they manage such excellent quality when feeding so many.

Friend of mine has just come back from a cruise, albeit one of the lesser known cruise lines. He struck a deal with their waiter that ,if they paid for one full-priced drink and gave him $10, they could have unlimited drinks all day.

That's pretty crooked I know, but he loves a pint and took full advantage

Doubt that would happen with Cunard. The waiters might have to walk the plank if they got caught.

A 7 day cruise across the Atlantic in January, in a boat full of loud mouthed obnoxious septics.
Please excuse me if I don't book up right now !! :w00t:

Cant be right. But well depends on how much you drink - I dont know how much a tip is, but even if it's say 20%, you'd have to drink £50 worth of booze a day to be paying a £10 tip!
And if they expect a tip for the food - tell them to go away, its full board :thumbsup:

may have been dollars then, all i remember is it was automatically added to your bill, and was worked out on per person per day. It was funny seeing all the shocked faces when it came paying their bills at the end of the hols

that didn't include the cabin steward - you have to tip them seperately

Tips is a bit of an expense by the end of the holiday. You do the math - here's the recommended tips for a cruiseline I've used;

Suite attendant: $5.75 USD a day per guest
Stateroom attendant: $3.50 USD a day per guest
Dining Room Waiter: $3.50 USD a day per guest
Assistant Waiter: $2.00 USD a day per guest
Headwaiter: $.75 USD a day per guest

They also add 15% onto your bar tab automatically for tips.

They say, 'well the staff aren't well paid, so their income is boosted by tips'. I say, 'well pay them more then.'

This really does seem like a good deal, but I hate the idea of a 'stuffy' boat. All the cruises I've been on before were Ocean Village stuff - they can't even spell formal. Unfortunately the QM carries connotations of snobby old farts, having to wear a dinner suit and sit with people you don't necessarily like at times you don't necessarily want to eat, and no stops en route to at least get away from the Yank in the plaid trousers who's convinced you want to hear all about him. Sorry, want to vote it hot (and want to go too!) but all things considered I'm afraid this one is a No.
