This is from Royal Caribbean thread "How do Price Drops Work in the UK?" -

"No, in the UK they will honour price drops right up to sailing date. You will get any refund back to your credit card, it is not refunded back as obc. See, some things are better in the UK than in the USA!!"

"Maybe that's one of the reasons why you folks pay higher prices in the UK."


Which got me thinking, "How do price drops work in Australia?"

I noticed a price drop on my category of cabin, and had only paid the deposit. I rang RCI in Sydney and they immediately changed the amount on my invoice and sent me a new one. It was about $800. I was very happy! However all of my category of cabins are now sold out, so there won't be any more price drops for me, but I can always hope for an upgrade!!!
