Cheapest way to Book Cruise ????
What's the cheapest way to book a European Cruise on Star Clipper ?? Directly thru cruise line, AAA, Costco, ????? and what is the age group on Star Clipper ? since there's basically no entertainment we were wondering if they catered to an older crowd.

I've never seen a better deal from the cruise line than was offered me by a travel agent. An outfit called "cruisecompete" will put your request for a quote out to many agents and they contact you directly. I have queried cruisecompete, but as above, I haven't found a better deal than my usual agent offers.

I always find that it is cheaper to book with a decent cruise trael agent rather then direct with cruise lines. As travel agents tend to offer higher discounts.
Star Clippers are for the slightly older clientele are renown for offering a personal cruise experience. They are a luxury liner.

Almost always a better deal than I can find on my own.

I have used them and they are competitive and provides a good reference point on pricing.
