Man, I messed up! We booked our cruise on Monday the 22nd and paid in full. Departure date is 9/1/19. We booked it through the casino royal program people because we received an email offer for $50 off. Lone behold, on tuesday a new sale started. Well I didn't look until today, and there is over a $500 price drop for our oceanview guarantee room and onboard credit😞 i could literally cry! I know we are past the 48 hour mark, but is there anything we can do? The balcony rooms still arent cheaper than what we paid, so i doubt we would be offered an upgraded room category but i feel like we threw away so much money.. only if we had waited one more day! Will they offer us any perks or onboard credit, or would i just be wasting my time to even try and call them to ask?

Welcome to the message boards.

September 1st is well past final payment due date.  I'm sorry to say they don't do price adjustments past final payment due date.  You can always call and plead your case but unfortunately history isn't on your side.

On the bright side you didn't mess up.  You booked a vacation at a price that is likely cheaper than a lot of other people on the cruise given it's 30-ish days away when you booked.  When you booked it you were happy with the price, you could afford it, it had the value proposition required for you to book it.

Enjoy your cruise!

Should I keep checking back to see if any balcony rooms drop below what we paid and ask to be upgraded? We also got royalup email offers but I don’t want to bid if I have even a small chance of being upgraded for free.

I was going to say just that.  You should call and see if there is a possible upgrade you could do.  Royal will not refund you the money you have spent but if you find another way to spend it - or possibly that upgrade would only be a couple bucks more - they might let you do that.

Yes I would definitely do this. A couple years ago, a junior suite was cheaper than what we had originally paid for a balcony. Even though it was after final payment, I called and they gave us a "free upgrade" to the junior suite since we had paid more for the balcony. It was the only time we've ever booked a suite of any kind 🙂
