You may remember my post a few months ago about Latitudes members booking online and watching out that they give you the correct fare...if not, see this post:
Anyway, I'm happy to report that I've saved another $350 on our December 11th cruise on the Dawn.
I have been making a regular habit of going through the online booking process to see if the rates had changed. Last night I was doing my regular routine and found that the cabin directly across the ship from ours, 11618 versus ours 11118 (both in category BA), was offered for $350 less. I immediately phoned NCL and told the rep. that I was online looking at a certain price, etc. She pulled up my current reservation and said "yes, I do see a resident discount being offered, I've adjusted your fare accordingly” She then proceeded to send me an updated invoice via email which I received about 1 minute later.
The reason I'm offering this information is obvious. It is not in NCL's best interest to phone you up and say "hey, I'm going to drop your cruise fare by another 350 bucks". However, it is in the consumer’s best interest to go through the quick and painless exercise of going online, through the booking process and determining if the rate currently offered differs in your favor from the fare you were quoted.
As I say, so far I've saved $750 on this cruise just by taking a few minutes to check up.
Take care all.
