Price Drop Flex


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I know we all know about and take advantage of price drops and I figured I'd make a place where we can just brag about our wins (small, medium or OMG).

I'll go first.

Allure 2022 - so far managed to shave off $240 and working on another $20😁 Every little bit counts!

 

What are you saving? Share (and maybe we'll help others remember to check frequently too!)

Harmony (September 25, 2022) - Currently down $296 from when we originally booked onboard with NextCruise, though we lost $50 in OBC, so we're really down $246 total on that one.

Wonder (March 4, 2022) - Currently down $125 from our original booking price. A little bit more expensive than the original week we had planned for Wonder (March 25) but totally worth it to do the inaugural sailing.

I am hoping that black Friday nets me some CP savings

Black Friday is always wonderful, I've saved so much every year with that one. I'm also *really* hoping that a Kids Sail Free offer pops up between now and my two sailings, as that'll drop my daughter's fare off entirely, which will be a fairly significant savings. I'm not banking on it for Wonder, but betting it'll at least show up before the one on Harmony.

So far my best was for one that ended up being canceled. 😞

Allure of the Seas -- 7N Western Caribbean and Perfect Day -- August 2021

Original Booking Total -- September 3, 2019 -- $3376 (Inside GTY for 2 people)

8 reprices later....


Final Payment Total  -- April 30, 2021 -- $1747.40

Total savings -- $1628.60

Then it was canceled as the last of the Allure cancelations before the restart.  We ended up on a 4N on the freedom during the same week, that was more than the 7N on the Allure would have been 😞

Freedom of the Seas April 11-15, 2022. Saved $520 per cabin total saving 520 times 3=1560.

Put the money to use on another cruise.

Yeah, the savings on my two bookings is part of what allowed me to justify springing for the UDP for the first time on our Wonder sailing. That, and I *really* want to try out Hooked.

Not a hard savings per se, but I was able to switch from a GTY ocean view to an assigned balcony stateroom on Adventure of the Seas (Jan 2022) and saved around $40.

This is still really cool! I love when I see better class staterooms at a lower cost. Seriously so cool!

This is one of the things I'm really excited about, putting the savings toward splurge onboard enjoyment!

It was painful 🙂 We still had a great time!  The cruise was a family cruise and everyone already had time off, so it was do the 4N one or not do something together.  It was three households and first time for one them, including our niece.  She loved it nd is ready to go again.  IT was also the frist time we had been on a Freedom class ship, which we really liked and may be our "sweet spot" for price and activities.

Symphony in 2 weeks...got $446 OBC a few weeks ago then checked my credit card the other day and have a credit from RC for $477.  I have no clue how I got both OBC and refund but I'll take it!

Bank error in your favor.

I had the same thing happen a few years ago with a cruise that got shortened dramatically due to Hurricane Irma. I wound up with a FCC *and* a refund - we asked Royal about it, they said anything we'd received they weren't going to take back, even if it wound up being an error / double payment.
