After spending a good deal of my Sunday morning on the phone, I got a sympathetic ear in Susan at the IPO desk. We had 5 cabins booked on Summit for 11/23, tried to get the promotional rate, was told no by 3 agents. I hung up again, called back booked 5 cat 8 guaratees, called my clients, got permission to pay in full, then the lovely Susan after hearing how long I had worked at this, upgraded all cabins to cat. 1A. All right together too.
Persistance does pay. Every cabin saved $1000.00 on this sailing, and got great cabins. The promotion is only good through tomorrow, May 7th, so have your agents give it a gallant try. They are booking them fast and furious. It was so nice to talk to someone at Celebrity who felt badly for being put in the predicament.
All's well that ends well.
