I am so fed up with receiving different answers from different people on the 866# from RC as well as from my travel agent. It seems like every time I call up to find out if there are any specials (which is the ONLY way to know the specials) each RC rep. gives me a different story. When I called the other day after seeing another topic on this chat site refering to the discount her cruise had, the RC lady said there was nothing for my cruise at this time, but to check back on Tuesday's before noon because every Tuesday before noon is "Happy Hour" with specials each week. (Something NOBODY has ever mentioned before from RC or the travel agent.) So this morning when I called to see what the "happy hour" special was, I was told there is no such thing- that RC has ramdom specials that change from day to day??? Also she said since I booked through a travel agent, I needed to check with them, not RC. So at that point I called the travel agent who told me that the specials are indeed on Tuesday, but that they run all day, not just until noon. What is the deal??? Does anyone know the secret code that I seem to be missing??? By the way, I just called my travel agent again for something, and a different person took the call. This person said that RC does the specials on Wednesday!!!! I give up!!

I have called about price reductions and saved 910.00 on our Empress cruise to Bermuda in July '06. When I would notice a drop in price on the RC website, I would call, and we would get the discount. We had a *guarantee* room, (first time with a guarantee) and would do it again. Found that the specials don't last long, so when you notice a drop..call..remember its YOUR money..

cotefamily,
I call the Crown and Anchor desk for information about discounts. 800-526-9723. Try it and let us know if they were helpful.
Every Tuesday IS happy hour. There will be discounts on certain ships and sailings.

I booked an inside smal room on the Navigator. I saw they were offering $50 up grades. I was able to upgrade to a Balcony and only I paid for inside cabin price. Check all the time and then call your travel agent. I saved over $800. If I would have book a balcany from the start I would have paid a lot more.

$30 to get to an outside cabin is worth it.. ask about the cost to get to a balcony..
