Royal Caribbean have a price drop promise, prior to final payment. Celebrity are their sister company so it begs the question, do they have the same policy? If it were me I would be phoning Weybridge to ask the question. That being the case any monies saved could be used for an upgrade if that were your choice. I for one would be interested in their response........Regards Wilba .
Price drops are given to UK Cruisers on Celebrity and Azamara.
Price drops apply right up to sail date not just to final payment.
Thanks for that, I thought that may be the case & if Norris decides to look at that option I hope they have booked, either direct or through a ' proper' cruise agent & not a High St shop, as it's been reported that 'they' will not honour the price drop & at best fob you off with some OBC........Wilba.
The weakness in the pound against the dollar is unlikely we will see any great reduction in US based cruise companies costs. The Galaxy leaves on Monday 29th and it being shown as full. There are some good offers if you have a look around but the ship and cruise might not be what you want. Certainly there could be upgrades which you might not find out about until you join the ship this has happened on three ocassions for us plus one before we left, one set of tickets on the Monday and another on the Thursday representing an upgrade from Conceirge to a Suite, so we were happy about that. But Wilba asked does Celebrity have the same clause re pricing as does Royal Caribbean and it does. We did Sydney to Auckland earlier this year and it was a great cruise, we even for reasons not obvious found the travel distance was not as bad as we were expecting.
If you have paid your final account then you will receive the amount you paid in fuel surcharge refunded in the form of "On-board Credit" If you still have your final account to pay then it will be reduced by the amount you paid in fuel surcharge. The VAT change will not amount to anything as the majority of the charge was zero rated and you will have to put up with the 30% drop in the recent value of the GB pound against the US dollar as this is the currency used on the ship so your on-board charges will cost you more in exchange terms.
