Super Saver Prices
 
We plan to do a back to back in Nov/Dec on the Liberty and use the Super Saver where we pick the type of stateroom ie Ocean View and they pick the room area and deck. So I'm wondering if anyone else has tried this and what your experience was.

It's the best way to go unless you have specific needs.

For instance some insides only come in bunk bed layout(ask it's only on some ships). If you have trouble with stairs it can be easier to pay a few bucks more and get a high deck, or just avoid the need to take an elevator from 2 until 15 constantly. Some people go to the formal dining room for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and like to pick a room nearby. If you have a problem with sea sickness a low deck(2 or 3) midship is best. If your a light sleeper don't select a deck right below the pool or near the galley.

Personally I always take gaurantee unless it's basically the same price when I'll take the highest deck possible. This makes it easy to get to the pool/fitness center/spa, and everything else is down where I can take stairs at least one way.

While you won't be assigned a Category 1A, which is the inside with bunk beds, if you select an inside guarantee, you could still end up in an undesirable location (very front of the ship, under a noisy area, etc.). So it's a gamble and it really depends on how flexible you are.

If you select an oceanview, you could end up in the front of the ship where the windows are more like port holes.

We've booked the Super Saver Fare for alot of clients and sometimes it's okay and other times it's not. We just had a client today that found out their cabin is as far forward as they can get. Unfortunately, the ship is sold out and we can't move them to another cabin.

Sometimes, your agent can get you moved into another cabin if you're assigned something you don't like, but there's no promise that can happen.

Most of the time when we travel, we get the guarantee cabin because it's the cheapest and we really don't care where we are because once we leave the cabin, everything else is equal.

So, if you're adventuresome, then go for it. If you don't like surprises, then perhaps one of the other special fare codes might be better for you.

Be sure RCI realizes you are doing a B2B, otherwise you could end up having to change cabins after the 1st half.
