Sonny,
I want the name of your travel agent- mine does nothing for me. I have made her aware of many things she knew nothing about. I saved MYSELF $111.00 when RC ran a special that she didn't know about. (Or maybe she did, but didn't want to lose out on some commission.) The only benefit I got from using one, as opposed to booking directly from RC, is free insurance. But I'm not sure it was worth all the hassles she has given me. I guess it is all in finding the right person who has been doing it for a long time.

I checked on the prices for the Enchantment sailing in October. It's a 5 night cruise which gets back to port one day before my Oct. 15th cruise on the Freedom. It will cost me $590 total for my wife and I for a inside cabin. That's only $120 a night! The bad thing is American Airline will charge me $200 to change my flight. I booked the cruise but I'm having second thoughts. I have until tomorrow to back out. I never should have checked on the prices.

For that price- you have to do it. So you lost a little in airfare, but if you break it down, it only makes it another $40 per day for the 5 day cruise...

I just backed out of the Enchantment. If I did go we would get our 30th cruise crystal on the Enchantment. My wife wants it on the Freedom. This is something RCCL Crown and Anchor does in commemoration of your 30th cruise. Oh well, there is always another deal.

I have learned to check cruise fare for my cabin category at least once per week within 6 months of the sailing date on all cruise lines. I have gotten reductions at least 50% of the time! In a few cases after more than one reduction I have been upgraded from oceanview to balcony! Keep checking!

yes this happens all the time...southwest airlines is the same thing...i have gotten in the habit of checking both when booked on either one....my sept 11th cruise dropped one day by $20 then the following day it was back up again then the day after it was down by $80 so it pays to check..and if you book southwest airlines online and the price goes down they wont give your money back but they will give you a credit for future travel that must be used by a year from the original purchase

Do you get the refund if you book directly with RC too or just travel agents?

You have to call RCCL or your travel agent when you see the better price. They don't do it automaticly.

Now, my question is do they allow you to keep calling every time there is a drop, or can you only do it 1x? stupid question?
