Two for one pricing!!!!

by melinda »

 

What can be done about all the ad’s for 2 for 1 pricing?  The cruises, tours, etc will not allow a solo to purchase the package at the advertised price.

I was told if I showed up at the pier solo they would not let me board the ship!

If the ad says "two for the price of one" and you're only "one", then you don't qualify. The advertised price is "two for the price of one", so of course you're not allowed to purchase it unless you bring the other "one" to make it "two".

Why two for the price of one? Because they make their money not off the fares but off the pax once they're on board. That's where cruiseships make their money - that's why the shameless bombardment to purchase things at every step of the way, including - on many ships - the rules that say you can't bring this and that (like booze) on board etc..

Two people will spend more than one, simple as that.

I don't get it

Solo's pay the same as 2 people usually for cruises

do you mean they are giving the cruise half price???  That is not usually how it works

The 2 for 1 fare are based on double occupancy ..if you were sharing a cabin & your cabin mate did not show of course you can still board  ...however you cabin mate will not get a refund

What cruise line are you talking about ?

If you mean what do I mean, then remember Alice down the rabbit hole to Wonderland where nothing makes sense or is what it seems.  Alice and Joanna and Wally and T&N having tea with the White Rabbit and the Dormouse.  Off with their heads!  Oh, maybe the tea is 2 for one.  We may get there yet!  

If you mean what does the OP mean I cannot begin to know, hence the rabbit hole.
