Re: october 2020 update

Interesting that, even though it's been 2.5 months since I last did an update, the only new fares I found were for the new trips. For Regent, anyway. There was one set of fare changes on Serenity and one set on Symphony - $100 increases - and nothing for Oceania. Explorer fares are generally higher ...

october 2020 update

Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush ... I added the new Regent itineraries for 2022 and 2023. I wouldn't book any, but I wanted to take a look at them ... and maybe I'll run fare compare just to see also. Don't forget that I'm still not planning to renew the dribcritic domain after October...

fare compare is not

This reminder, that I am not updating fare compare anymore.

You can still look at the old data, and I see that many people still are, but it will become increasingly irrelevant with each passing day.

bottom of the ninth

Yesterday, I decided to cancel my one remaining, booked, Regent cruise. I've held on to that cruise because the deposit was small, compared to the cruises we cancelled months ago, and we had a great fare. (We even picked up a free day when there was an itinerary change.) The cruise embarkation date ...

regent 143 night world cruise

I put in a placeholder trip for the 2023 world cruise, assuming it will be on Mariner again, and guessing at the start and end dates and ports. Trip 7680: trip=7680 This is exactly what they wrote in their email: SOON TO BE REVEALED... An epic journey that traverses 42 countries and 6 continents . W...

Re: july 2020 updates

FYI, the 2023 Symphony web pages are now up, so I'll go to work to get Fare Compare updated by the end of the day. ====== All trips and fares are updated. The average fare per day, on a B1, is $502, which is significantly more than 2022. There was only one new port - new to drib critic - which is Ka...

Re: july 2020 updates

I'm running an update now, but I can see that it's only status changes, and the usual sprinkling of Crystal categories that changed from unavailable to available. (I won't post those because it makes the Fare History selector look like a hoarder lives there.) I'll update the new Crystal Symphony tri...

august 2020 updates

August 1 is a Saturday, so I may just spot check then, and wait until Monday, August 3, for the full update and emails.

New subscribers for emails, by the way, are non-existant.

crystal symphony 2023 itineraries

I added placeholder trips for these itineraries. I'll complete them and run Fare Compare for them as soon as their web pages are live on the Crystal web site. A couple of notes of interest: There is a gap from February 7, in Singapore, to February 22, also in Singapore. There are some six night itin...

oceania

trips w/insert: 26, total inserts: 286, total sql: 350.

It looks like the fare decreases from July 1 were for a temporary promotion, and the fares have reverted to their previous value. (They are all still fare decreases from their original values, though.)

Re: Crystal flies Team Serenity Economy

... I can't believe that the rank of captain would be given only an economy seat. Also that Crystal would be ready to risk his health on these longhaul flights sardined into economy. Amazing. Keith said Team Crystal was boarding and disembarking, so I guess others flew economy to KL. ... flutterbie...
