My husband and I are booked on a cruise in October 2001. I booked our cruise in July 2001. I heard yesterday that Princess is offering the Southern Cruise in September for $1000 for a suite. That is the price of an inside cabin. So, I called her and asked if there are any upgrades or discounts on my trip, she said, "no, not right now.". She told me that she checks every week for my and if there are any specials or upgrades those are passed along to me. So, I believe your TA should be doing the same. Good Luck.
