I wasn't being sarcastic. I happen to like Early Saver. While I do agree there could be fewer restrictions, I also wish that the other cruise lines had something similar. I realize that not everyone is able to commit to a cruise 12 months in advance. But as of now, I'm happy knowing that we've saved money by booking early. Of course, should the prices happen to drop below what we originally paid, I certainly wouldn't turn down an adjustment or an on board credit. So again, hooray for Early Saver (no sarcasm intended).
