Better yet, contact your agent and ask them to check for you! It'll save you time and trouble - besides, that's their job.

Matelot, good idea to keep an eye on your bookings. I also like to hands on. If you booked through an agent then have them do it but if you did it yourself then that's a good find.

I never use a travel agent, prefer to have control over my own bookings.

I use a travel agent and have full control of my bookings. I tell my TA what I want and she does it all. If there is a problem she has more clout with the Cruiseline than I do.

Can you use a C&A coupon even after you you are booked?

Typically I book a balcony cabin. I'm diamond. The diamond discount is more than the C&A discount and they cannot be combined. That said, I did find a real good price on the Allure by looking through the C&A discounts.

You can use the coupons on a previously booked cruise. You just need to know which discount is best for you as you can't use them both,

Yes, you can use one or the other on a cruise that's already booked given they are still valid. Always best to ask your agent to double check because there may be other discounts that are better or that can be added to the existing booking.

Normally your tier level discount is greater than the coupon especially if you book a balcony. This is for Diamond and above. If you used an agent then have them do it. If you did it yourself, feel free to call the cruiseline they will work with you.

Thank you for your replies. So I guess I should check the C&A discounts more often. I have two cruises booked and both involve balconies. However, as I said, I found a good price on the Allure by checking the C&A coupons, however, I didn't use the coupon as the diamond discount was better.

It pays to check coupons as well as prices after booking. On my upcoming cruise on the Explorer I found a coupon for $125 for the cruise that was not available when I booked. I entered the code online and it got applied.

Totally agree.

We've now used 4 C & A certificates as discounts on cruises.
