I'm still patiently waiting for a price DROP. Maybe as it gets closer to the sailing date, if the ship hasn't filled to capacity, there'll be a price drop. If you booked your cruise through a travel agent,hopefully he/she is keeping an eye on the fares and will let you know if and when a price drop occurs. If it's before your final payment, it would simply reduce the cost of your cruise. If it's after the final payment, you would be eligible for an on board credit, and your travel agent will tell you what you need to do to get the OBC.
This is only true IF you are booked under the Early Saver Fares currently only offered by Carnival Cruiselines. Early Saver Fares are the only fare code that provides this OBC after final payment up to 2 business days before sailing if lower fares should occur.
