Default price drop refund?

Hi,

I already booked my cruise with RC and have a cabin assigned. I noticed there was a price drop and was wondering if anyone has successful in getting the difference refunded?

Best regards,
Rischa.

I have always been successful in getting a refund. I would advise contacting your TA who booked the cruise for you.

Yes, we always get a refund, as long as the price drop is not a new booking special.

Absolutely, I've saved a bit over $1000 on our upcoming Mariner of the Seas Cruise to Mexico on price drops.

After full payment is made they are more reluctant to do it though. We got all our drops before Final Payment and there was no problem at all getting price drops honored.

Good Luck

Yes you can get a refund if there is a price drop. The only thing you need to watch out for is if it is a Tuesday Special for new bookings only. They will not honor price drops for new bookings only special. You just need to call RCCL or your TA, this will take just a couple of minutes to do.

Just a note, I have never had a problem getting a price drop after final payment. I have done this several times and they are happy for me.

Oh darn bummer. But keep watching you might still find a price drop before your sailing.

On a Tuesday Sales event they refunded you? That is a "new booking only " promotion and if true you would be the first I have heard of getting it.

Ditto what Sue L said. I've never heard of anyone getting a refund of a Tuesday "sales event" price on an existing booking! Maybe we should all start calling about those rates!
