Default WOW SALE - Any Clue as to when?

Wondering if anyone has any insight as to when RCI may host another WOW Sale? Looking to book a cruise and have traditionally seen these types of sales occur in the fall time frame?

I haen't been informed of any yet. I've checked the calender but don't see any sign of it.

I am waiting for a WOW sale as well. Seems like last year it was in October but I cant remember when. That extra on board credit comes in really handy for me. I really would appreciate updates when ever they become available

Thanks for the info I will be watching and hoping. I have been watching a live posting on CruiseCritic from Freedom of the Seas and the pictures are really making me anxious to go to the Caribbean.

There is no WOW sale. There is a sale from a specific company but it is not RCL.

There are far less sales now than there used to be- the Promowave seems to have disappeared, the Tuesday Happy Hour Sales have gone, every now and again there is a WOW sale, but I haven't seen any bargains this summer..

The Tuesday Promo sales are still there every Tuesday. However I do agree, there are far less sales than there used to be. I believe that's because prices are so low generally how do you take them any lower?

What's a Tuesday promo sale? Should I only book cruises on Tuesdays?

Honestly, I don't really see how prices on Royal Caribbean are any cheaper? Oasis is really expensive; they're charging up to $1500 per person for 3/4th fare on Junior Suites and up. Understandably it's a new ship; however, Oasis compared to Freedom, Liberty or Independence for the same cabin class and cruise; I've found is upward to 800-1000 more per person.

I'm really shocked that folks are paying almost double to sail on her; I'm convinced that when all the payments come due 70 days prior to sailing that ship is going to open up because I believe given the economy people would be much more willing to wait a year or until the fall to get more "reasonable" fares.

I agree with you completely. I believe many got caught up in the moment but when they realize what they are paying and comparing it, a good deal with bail. I believe the 70 mark is just about here for the first sailings. It will be interesting.
