Book today or Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

On Celebrity a new promotion starts tomorrow.  I can't decide to wait and see if it is a better deal. Does anyone have an insight of the new promotions??

Book now (unless if after final payment) and if a better deal tomorrow call in and have them upgrade your reservation with the new promotion or price if better than you have.   U.S. bookings only.

Can you elaborate?

It isn’t so easy, and sometimes is impossible, for passengers in other countries to upgrade or cancel and rebook.

Cruisestitch pretty much hit it.     Many countries have non-refundable bookings and often disallow any price matching after booking.    In the U.S.  we can cancel and price adjust without penalty up to final payment date.   Since the OP did not post their  location in the  profile I thought it was prudent to point out.

I suspected that might have been what you were trying to indicate, but it's not accurate to state "U.S. bookings only". Canadian bookings, for example, are treated the same as U.S. bookings. Maybe "Doesn't apply to booking made in all countries" instead of "U.S. bookings only"?

Really good point.   Wasn't sure about Canada.    I read often of UK and Australian bookings not being able to to do the same.  

 

Wonder if Mexico and Central American are the same as the U.S. and then we could say North American Bookings.

Good point, yet many of us do not know this and as such use the 'qualifier' U.S. bookings only.

 

I, personally, would not have really known that all of North America (NA) was included in this policy and almost always qualify it as U.S. unless a poster, like yourself, provided an update.

I have just booked yesterday and will be curious to see the new promotion. Meanwhile, I can't see the document without some further sign-in. Apparently being signed in to Tapatalk is not signing in to Tapatalk? Perhaps it's a private Google Doc?

Thanks for the pdf link. I've been trying to reach friends aboard the Equinox who booked for them and us on Sunday, to ask if they'd book for DBiL/DSiL before the sale expires. So far no response from the cruisers, but if they can't be reached, only the Onboard booking credit will be lost, and DBiL/DSiL can wait until the 30th for the same sale!

I went via web just now and it opened gloriously right up-- but is it going to be enough to convince Mr ZF that he wants to cruise two years in a row (21/22).....

 Just checked into pricing for the cruise I was hoping our friends on the Equinox could book for DBiL/DSiL and it is up $400 also, but the big box is giving an additional $50 shop card- woo-ee!

whew got lucky, price went back down today so i will save 800 today instead of measly 400 yesterday. they always say prices go up so they can mark them down and this is 100% proof all sales are scams. never believe any countdown clocks. same on NCL too.  

 

actually they took away one perk. so the price truly went up 300 or more

Today's sale will either save us $800 or allow a move up to Concierge for $100 p/p and keep all four (4) perks, either scenario! We will lose $150 in OBC, too.

 

A quick question for the sage 'upgraders' with X, will future upgrade ability be based on my original fare basis or the 'up graded' fare basis were I to upgrade today and next month a lower fare appears for next cabin (or two) levels up, become within a comfortable pricing range?

Bo -   Your future up gradable fare will be based off of the current "up graded" bases fare and promotion (the new fare you get today).   In other word when you upgrade, you are re-ticket and that becomes your new fare basis.

Only 2 of my 12 future bookings were able to save with this promo.  1 booked a couple of weeks ago and the other booked when the 2021 Europe sailings opened.   Both were NRD 1 Perk.

So I (apparently unwisely) booked and made final payment on a cruise 80 days out two days ago. Now same cabin class is $400pp less, plus more perks. Nothing they will do, right?

Believe that you may be able to upgrade if your new payment is at least a $1 more. So may be able to get an upgrade with more perks for minimal upcharge.
