Non Refundable deposits

Recommended Posts

Can any of the travel agents out there answer this...so I have my sons in a boardwalk balcony on Allure in December. The reservation is fully paid for at this time.  Out of curiosity, I ghost booked the adjacent room next to them (same class) and the reservation would be $250 less because of an added Florida resident discount not applicable at the time of booking. I contacted my travel agent and he says Royal Caribbean's policy is "once final payment is made on a Non refundable fare, they do not honor price reductions."  I remember that they used to provide onboard credit for the amount if the repricing was done after final payment window.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Not an agent..but after the final payment date..options are limited....to just rebooking a different room level and paying the difference....if its cheaper, then I am not sure.

 

But not an option to simply rebook the same room or same class of room for a cheaper price that I am aware of.

If it.s cheaper they will upgrade you for free but no $ back or OBC.

I am past the final payment date....cruise is 15DEC....I like the room they are in...last boardwalk balcony on deck 11 so they get boardwalk and ocean view so they don't want to switch to an ocean view balcony

Since you are past final payment date, your TA is correct, you cannot apply new discounts and/or take advantage of a price drop for the existing room.

can I ask you this scenario....when booking with a casino fare through club royale, you have to pay full fare immediately.  Is it the payment or the final payment date (90 days prior?) that triggers lockdown?

It is final payment date for non-casino bookings but when you book using a casino upgrade or a casino complimentary rate, once final payment is made, you’re done.  No more price adjustments.

WAAAYTOOO is correct, once final payment on a casino rate is made there is no price adjustments. We have been able to upgrade once to a larger cabin through the casino when we received a better offer in the mail but we had to give up the onshore "party" that came with the first room. They stated it was part of the smaller cabin package and not the upgraded offer. Took the bigger room. Tried again on another cruise and were denied. Depends on how nice the casino person feels that day.
