We make a final push to get the first iteration of the Cruise Prune Web Application up and running for users. Currently the only data that is being provided are Cruise Prices for 1 and 2 Adult rooms only. There is of course a huge expanse of information and further data we want to implement and include throughout this process, tracking Cruise Lines throughout the world on as many combinations as possible, but first, we start slow and steady with the right foundation and structure.
Princess Cruises (Price Monitoring)
We plan to include Princess Cruises into our list of cruise lines that we are monitoring. Before this date, we are only monitoring Cunard and P&O Cruises to begin with, however over the course of the next 6-12 months we will continue to add Cruise Lines based on popularity and suggested requests as fast as possible. Therefore, yes we definitely will be adding the likes of TUI Cruises, Royal Carribean, MSC and many many more!
Prices for Children & Infants
Up until this point, Cruise Prune will only return the data for 1 or 2 Adults per room. However, this is quite a feat for us to be able to launch our monitoring for the 20, yes 20 combinations of Adults, Children and Infants. Now this is very dependent on the Cruise Line and there is a lot of logic for us to churn through to be able to display succtingly the data in a logical manner to our subscribers. However, given that on some cruise lines you can have 1 Adult, 3 Children, or 1 Adult, 2 Children, 1 Infant, or 2 Adults, 1 Child, 1 Infant etc - we'll be looking to make live the 20 combinations of Adults + Children + Infants into our price monitoring, meaning that families will now be able to benefit from the Cruise Price monitoring as well!
Royal Caribbean (Price Monitoring)
We shall be adding Royal Caribbean to our list of Cruise Lines that we'll be able to provide up to date latest deals and offers from! This will include the full suite of Cruises that Royal Caribbean offer across many all room types on all ships.
