Default upgrade & free shore ex not being offered to early booki

Hi

Have seen our TA's web site they are offering free shore ex and upgrades to bookings on the liberty 8/1/05, 13 of us booked this cruise last July 04, but we can't get these offers as our TA says for new booking only, how annoying! Any suggestions?

If you haven't paid your final payment can you cancel with no penalties then turn around and reschedule and get the offers?

That is something the TA is apparently offering to get bookings. It does not appear to be an incentive from CCL. Cancelling and rebooking is not going to work in that case I am sure. <G>

I have a friend who always brings me newspaper advertisements to check out. One recently listed low fares, and free shore excursions and upgrades. When I compared their prices to our upcoming cruise, the travel agency was charging $160 more per person than I had paid, so the shore excursion (which was through a private company with very vague details) and the upgrade (which wasn't available on our sailing) weren't free, they were $160!

hi all

thanks for your replies, we got a good price for the cruise, so we are still saving as the price has shot up now. Hopefully we will get the upgrade, on our last cruise we again booked early and went from an 8A assigned cabin and were put in 11 suite cabin all six cabins were upgraded to this, wonderful, fingers crossed it might happen again
