Paul, can you do a follow-up report on this. I am looking at Voyage 7418 on Silver Explorer and am confused by the Price Guarantee aspect. You have always been able to get lower price if there are price drops (especially before final payment) so I can't figure out what they are offering.
As for touting the "ala carte" concept; I think that is great. Maybe they can make Regent drop the excursions (you can already get credit for air and hotel).
