Did any first time RCCL cruisers get this promotion? I am a RCCL first time cruiser and I booked a cruise on the Mariner for June 17, 2007 via a TA. When I saw this promo on the RCCL website, I emailed it to my TA (May 28)and asked if my cruise qualified. I was advised that yes it was and that it would be discounted. I failed to follow up with my TA to make sure until recently, since my final payment is due April 1. When I asked the TA about this (3-2) I was informed that this promo was for past RCCL guests only and since I wasn't I didn't qualify for the discount. I've completed the online form on RCCL website (3-2) asking if this was the case and have yet to get a response. Does anyone know if this is correct or have any suggestions on how to get a written response from RCCL?
