    SPS got a reaction from AnnetteJackson in It really can pay to re-price your cruise!   
    UPDATE!!!
    With the current sale going on as of today (July 9th) I called again to receive another $144 off of our cruise fare.
    In just under one month, we have now saved $388! Keep checking those prices!
    FYI: I use the price alert feature on the Shipmate app to monitor prices. It sends me an email each time the price changes (up or down).

    How about a cruise that just sails to BOTH of RC’s private destinations? Maybe even multiple day stays at one

    Hello, All!
    Been a while since I've been here. Several times in the past, I've done a second "mock-booking" of my existing reservation, to see if I would come up with a lower price to no avail.
    With the current 2021 sale going on, I was able to see that booking an available cabin RIGHT NEXT TO MINE was $79 cheaper so I decided to call RCCL. (Not a bunch, but, hey, every bit helps!)
    To my surprise, not only was the basic rate $79 cheaper, but, I actually qualified for an additional discount as a resident of MICHIGAN! This has NEVER happened for me. In my experience, those discounts have usually been available for those in the home port state.
    At the end of the call, I had a $244 discount off my cruise fare!
    If not for finding this blog a few years ago, I wouldn't have known that re-pricing an existing reservation was possible.

    I’ve had this same problem in the past. This is the first cruise I’ve ever been able to reprice at all, let alone twice in a month!

    SPS reacted to Bean79 in Two Cruise Lines' Protocol Panel Says it Won CDC Support   
    11:03 ET - The expert panel formed by cruise operators Royal Caribbean and Norwegian in developing cruising protocols has gotten the support of the CDC and will share findings with the rest of the industry, says panel co-chair Michael Leavitt, who is former governor of Utah and HHS secretary under the Bush administration. Leavitt tells WSJ the panel will focus on screening and exposure reduction; environmental operations such as engineering controls; response contingencies and planning; and destination and route planning.

    @SteveinSC I find people who are anti-cruise to be ignorant. I'm not talking about people who hate the water or fear boats. But the ones who complain of crowds and disease. I hate crowds but cruising works better than Disney.

    SPS got a reaction from YOLO in How WIll RC Limit Capacity?   
    Ever since this article came out, this has been a big concern for me, as well. If this is what happens, I can't help but feel like we'll be punished for taking advantage of a good deal.
    Our next cruise (Late January '21) continues to be available for booking and I'm starting wonder if someone that books MUCH later at a higher cost will be accommodated while loyal customers that book early, like myself, are left standing on the pier, so to speak.
    I certainly hope the determinations would not just be made by initial booking costs. We like to book cheaper fare so that we can spend more in other areas of the overall vacation experience. (i.e. Dining, drinks, casino, excursions, spa, onboard shops, activities, etc.)
