Default Cruise Price Drop

I thought if the cruise line had a sale and your cruise dropped you were intitled to the price difference? Our cruise has went down but the sale is for new bookings only, plus since I booked though someone else they told me to call them. Which all I get is a recording when I call them. Any suggestions?

If it is a price drop for new bookings only, then RCI will not give it to you.
But it never hurts to ask, I always say.
Go to the RCI website and get the number there to discuss your reservation. I always had very good service through RCI and got price drops w/out hassle if I was eligible.

Be advised that if you made your reservation through a Travel Agent, you should go to them for the price drop. RCI will not adjust your reservation if you used a Travel Agent.

Thats what RC said it's for new bookings only and I had to go to my agent, which I did and they said it's a 1 day sale for new bookings only but to watch the price and if it goes down call them.

You may just have to eat it. I assume you booked at a price you were comfortable with. I always reference 3 places before I book and this time; I got a price for a balcony that I would have paid for an oceanview plus; I got another $100 onboard credit.

RCCL does this all the time. In May they did this too but it was "Standard Bookings" and "2 Day Sale". Keep looking because they usually do go down and we were able to beat the sale price!

I booke some time ago for the nov. 22 sailing on the Liberty OTS, but my travel agent was able to get us a nice drop on our price.
