I just tried to book my early booking cruise this morning. this is what was told to me.
the rates are based on first time cruiser rates. if you are a past guest, military or 55 and older you wont save money. she also said it states UP TO a 25% discount. I could have booked today and used the first time rate with the discount I would have saved 10 dollars a cabin as opposed to using my past guest rate. not worth 10 dollars for them to hold my money for 9 months, ...what looks too good to be true usually is.
