That extra savings helped to offset the huge cost of flying during a break week.

As with some other cruise line, Royal Caribbean changed their policy regarding price drops. If the price of your category goes down after final payment is due, they no longer adjust the price of your cruise. Once you're in penalty period, it's a done deal.
