Rip-off or Real?

Has anyone ever used Crucon.com? They are offering a 5-day Western Caribbean for $279 including port charges. What are some important questions to ask them? (never done this before)

Thanks, ALL help is appreciated

Which ship is it on? I bet it is some line that you never heard of. Also it is probably on a cruise that leaves at a very unfavorable time (such as in a week).

That is what they call a loss leader. They suck you in with real cheap quote and then tell you about other, better, deals.

I never heard of that company. Call the Better Business Bureau. if they are not listed, don't do business with them. Although it is voluntary to be listed with the BBB, I have found that many crappy companies do not list. That way you can never find out about complaints. If they are not listed, don't do business with them!

Any agent can get the same deal.
You usually do not get the 1A. (bunk beds)
Usually 4A-inside 2 lower is $50-60 p/p more.
6A-Outisde another 50-60 p/p more.
Most of there offer a 1-2 Category upgrade.

I never pay more than $100 per day of a cruise. Your quote is well below that range. good deal if you like the shorter cruises (5 day).
