Didn't think to ask them if they were in a call center or where they were located. But you're right, it's possible it's handled differently up there versus down here.

Put simply - we shop deals.

We've found great prices with Royal Caribbean's website, as well as 3 other cruising specialty sites. Many have promos.

We've gotten prepaid gratuities, free spa time, pre-paid specialty dinners, frequent flyer files, and other "promo bonuses" (and/or onboard credit).

In addition, we use Crown & Anchor discount certificates and also watch for price drops so that those can get applied toward our reservations as well.

Bottom line - shop around and do your homework. The pricing can vary hundreds of dollars and the bonuses vary as well.

Allure of the Seas (Western Mediterranean) - May 2015
Radiance of the Seas (Alaska Roundtrip/Vancouver) - 5/9/14
Independence of the Seas (Western Caribbean) - 3/23/14
Adventure of the Seas (Southern Caribbean) - 2/23/13
Oasis of the Seas (Eastern Caribbean) - 2/10/12
Adventure of the Seas (Southern Caribbean) - 5/9/09
