Default Price Reduction

I am very excited! When I was on the Royal Caribbean Website last night I noticed the cabin we booked on Explorer of The Seas for March of 2014, was reduced by $500 for 2 people!! Called my TA right away and not only did we get the $500 reduction I was also able to keep the $200 OBC I received when I originally booked with a WOW sale!!! This never happens to us! This is the first time we so not have a balcony or JR suite, we booked a large ocean view, on RC ships this room is larger that a balcony room, so I guess we will keep this room unless I see the balcony rooms going down! So, keep checking for price reductions !

Congrats on the $500 reduction...that is awesome! Explorer has some really really good rates....And for those of us that don't have to fly its even better.

That's why we are cruising with RCI, usually go on Celebrity or Princess but they are not leaving from NJ or NY next year. We live in CT. And flying is too much of a hassle, so RCI it is!

Nice reduction find for you!

We've gotten a similar one for a cruise next year.

The key is to check often and see if the price drops...and act fast to get the reduction "price match". They'll only honor that until the final payment is due.

Yep I have seen that many times......A sailing getting closer to final payment (or in final payment) lowers the rates big time but then books up quickly then rates sky rocket because there are only a couple of cabins left.
