We experienced this in 99 on the Triumph. About a week before the cruise I got one of those Seasaver emails saying the cruise we had booked for $500 somthing was now $308!! Well I checked with the Carnival website and it agreed with that price. So as soon as the travel agent was open, we called, and while she *****ed up a storm, she got our price reduced. Considering the lady's attitude, she would not have done it if she didn't have to. So anyway, I'm thinking they have to reduce for you. Unless like the other poster said, its in the fine print that they wont. Definitely worth a try.
