I did a 7 day cruise the Armonia in September. One of the best weeks of my life. THE BEST service and the cleanest ship hands down!

$989 total for 7 days for two adults and one child. (So $329 per person) Taxes and port fees included. We had a ocean view. It was an older smaller boat but for the price it was a steal. We had the most wonderful time. My brother stayed in a room alone next to us and was nice enough to share his drink package with us. Carnival ships cut you off after 15 drinks and have a five minute wait time between ordering drinks, MSC doesn't have a limit or wait time.

Worked for me. Are you using a vpn? Some sites block vpn ips. I tried it with my vpn and it worked still. If you want to use the vpn, maybe try changing the connection site?

EDIT: I'm seeing this now too. Aftee turning off my vpn and after using a filter/sort, getting an access denied message.

This seemed like a fake deal from MSC, didn't have a lot of savings when I dug into it.

I've gotten decent deals on balcony rooms and suites but only by luck. I've read the travel blogs and they all seem to say "get a good travel agent". My question is, where do I find a good travel agent? The ones in my area treat my like a number, put me on a mass email list and throw terrible "deals" at me. More salesmen than anything else.

I'm not expecting magic but I don't want to pay $4K for a 5 night disney cruise for 2 adults and 2 kids, thats their normal price. What's the big secret the blogs are holding back?

Disney is entirely different product - 4K for 5 night cruise with Disney for 4 pax is a good deal on most days. You can use vacations-to-go or crusie compete for the cruise deals

Idt there is as many deals as there was 10 or so years ago. MSC is very competitive though with their pricing. This deal was pretty good because it added the gratuities on top of their other deal for the same price. In essence knocking $180 or so off.

I changed my Armonia that had no drinks for $715 in May to with drinks for $1038 ish and got WiFi drinks and the gratuities. It was the same cost as the promo where I'd done price searching a few weeks ago so I know they didn't do a fake promo by adding more to the cost.

If you're a voyagers club member search out the 5%+15% off cruises. They're great value imo. Both the ones I was looking at this year qualified.

How is the internet connection on these cruises? Amazing I can fly to China/Middle East/Australia and stream all flight long in HD without a single hiccup (free many times), but for some reason cruise ships still have crappy internet where you can't even wifi call. And flights are more in the middle of nowhere than any of these Caribbean cruises.

I'd love to know what my Internet solution could be on Meraviglia? Anyone know whether there is any common area with internet (at least for kids?) And what's the cheapest I could get away with in cabin? Also, does Sprint work at some ports?

Depends on the ship. I've heard great things about Royals Oasis class ships and they stream well. Specifically to MSC though I don't believe they have a tier with unlimited data so you wouldn't want to stream much if anything.

This deal specifically has capped data. I think 2gb iirc.

Edit - It's actually for 3gb and they do say they have unlimited for $199 but doesn't say it includes streaming so idk how effective it would be. Likely depend on if it's one of their newer or older ships.
