Carol, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it true that if the price drops the agent can get credit for the difference of the purchased cabin? I know my agent as done it and passed it on to me. I'm thinking mani8kgm's agent could very well get the money and not give any back to her. This would be another good reason for us to use a local or well know travel agent. It sounds as if mani8kgm should be talking to the people who sold her the cruise. This is an interesting thread to follow.
GOOD LUCK MANI8KGM! I hope your get a fair deal.
