Default cruise sales

Hi,
I know carnival has upgrade sales on rooms and am wondering if royal carribean does the same thing?
I'm thinking of booking a cruise for next April and am not sure if I should wait for a sale or book now.
Thanks for your help,
Leslie

Royal Caribbean is having a "sale" right now. They are offering upgrades from interior to oceanview for $99 and from oceanview to balcony for $49. It is on select sailings only and is for a limited time only.

Yes, RCL is offering a very limited upgrade offer ("select sailings"), but they're all for this year. I didn't see anything in 2007.

If you can go this fall check it out!

if you find a cruise that you want, book it now. You might miss out if you wait. If a sale does come along, and its for the EXACT cruise and cabin that you have booked, ask your TA to try to get the sale price for you. If the sale is for new bookings only you would have to cancel your original reservation and re-book. Read the fine print on all sales-find out exactly what is included in that price(tax, port charges things like that).

To elaborate a little on what Lisa said about cancelling and rebooking; this is not always an option. It depends on how close the cruise is. There are penalties for cancelling as the cruise gets closer. As Lisa said, read all of the fine print.

Thanks for all your input! I've signed up for the newsletter and am thinking of booking now to get the room I want on the Sovereign.
