I am new to this site, but am extremly grateful for the many posts that I have read. Here's my question I purchased a NCL cruise for Alaska in December, but now I have noticed that the price has dropped by $100's. I used a TA instead of going directly through NCL. I was wondering if anyone has any luck getting a refund for the differnce? I would appreciate any feedback.
Welcome, Ivannos! Did you ask your TA about this? Many times, when the cruise line comes up with a new (lower) price, the TA can get the price of your reservation changed. This is especially true if you have not yet made the final payment on the cruise. Not sure about a refund, but perhaps you can get the difference in shipboard credit.
Our cruise is on May 13. I guess I maybe out of luck because my final payment has been made. I checked with my TA and she said that I was in the penality phase. Oh well I quess you live and learn. Thanks for your feedback. This is our second cruise to Alaska, loved the first time around and plan on loving the second.
Most of the time there isn't much you can do, I've tried and failed. We usually book cruises at the last minute for the best price...but then again, you might miss out on going. If you are retired and can go with a 1 or 2 day notice you can save a bundle. But if there is a certain cruise or time that you want to go, pay up front and just have a great time...it's only money....
The price dropped on our cruise by $100. Today, I called the travel agent and asked for a on board credit of $100. The travel call NCL and they reported I could not get a on board credit. The good news, NCL did upgrade our cabin from a H-9 (cheapest cabin on the boat) to G-11 (up 5 decks and an obstructed view). The upgrade does not sound like much but the upgrade is valued at $500.
I would not have even called my travel agent if I had not read this thread. Thanks OP and good luck to you!
