I've said it before, but I don't see why everyone should expect to get something everytime their cruise price fluctuates. You either book early and get the cruise you want with the cabin/deck you want or you wait to see if the cruise goes on sale. Most stores will not let you return the item you bought last week just because there is a sale this week, so cruise lines shouldn't be any different.
In the case of an Early Saver booking rate you do make the sacrifice of the deposit being non-refundable in exchange for the right to take advantage of price drops. It's a give and take type situation.
