Default Check Your Price

We have three cruises booked right now and so far this month there has been a price drop on two of them. On the 7th of this month our Mariner cruise for January 2010 dropped $590.00 combined for my husband and me. And on the 20th of this month our cruise on the Adventure dropped $75.00. I would advise everyone with reservations to double check their prices, or have their TA's check. Hope this helps at least a few of my fellow cruisers out there.

We did this last week and saved $150 total on our Monarch cruise, which is a lot of money for that category of cruise.

We were closely watching Freedom OTS (Sept. 13th 2009) category Q which was sitting at $552 for weeks... but my stepson and his buddy were still waiting for their leave to be approved so they could join us.

Final payment was due July 3rd so we were beyond the deposit and possible cancellation point.

Last week I asked my TA if he could put a hold on it which he did.
The very next day the price went from $552 to $649. On Tuesday of this week he managed to get an extension for the hold and today, their military leave was granted and we booked the cabin for $552.... WHEW BABY!!!!!!

They're not all going down... this one went UP !!!

What an incredible price. Less than $50 a day. We do this cruise in January so please post a review. We will be on the Adventure OTS that same week and with our future cruise certificate from problems we had on a previous cruise, and the price drop from earlier this week, we have a Deck ten balcony for only $299.00 per person. Just wish we had more vacation time to take advantage of all of the incredible deals out there. Happy cruising

That rumor about price drops turned out NOT to be true. Our agent checked with the company.

The rumor was that they were going to start giving onboard credit instead of price protection, but it wasn't true.

Just an update. Checked prices yesterday, our Adventure cruise had gone down $33 a person, so I called and for twenty dollars a piece was offered a suite guarantee with the remaining $13 as an onboard credit. Checked this morning and am now booked in a grand suite For a total out of pocket price of $586 we will be living the suite life. Thanks Royal.

Sweet! We can't believe our luck. Life is good.

Call your Travel Agent or Royal Caribbean (whoever you booked with) and tell them you saw the new price and would like an adjustment to your fare.

Take care,
Mike
