Hi

Just thought I'd let anyone know who is going to Cork in May that there are balcony guarantees up for grabs at 353.00 (or thereabouts, cant remember now).

We had an E2 already but have decided to go for the guarantee and saved ourselves 143.00. They took off 35.00 admin charge as tickets have already been issued but we are still 143 better off (that will pay some of the bar bill!!)

Now the wait for the room..........scary......

Good Luck!

We have already been assigned a D2 (originally had an E2) on deck 6. Quite happy and a little bit richer!!:D

I have never sailed with RCI - but have been monitoring the falling prices on this trip since I priced it last August.

Certainly very attractive pricing - but intrested in your "scary" comment what do you knopw about the IoS balcony cabins? ;-))

Hi trolleydolly

Hiya

Think you need to contact your travel agent. RCI wont do it direct unless you booked with them directly. Good luck

Excellent!! Think we will be issued with new luggage labels. Also, if you have already done on line check in, you will have to re do it as it has old cabin no. on.

By the way, I was allocated a cabin in about an hour.:)

No they will not reissue the luggage labels.
You get a big black biro and cross out the old room number and write in the new one. Or the porters at the pier have blank luggage labels you can fill in yourself.

I was told the same thing from my TA. However they said as I had booked a Balcony cabin I could not change to a guarantee cabin because this was a downgrade. I guess I will have to accept this, but it does seem that others have had better luck. Oh well :rolleyes:

After many phone call's today, we have been changed to the balcony guarantee, saved a few hundred so really pleased.

It took 2 day's and a bit of stress but happy with the result.
Can't wait to get back on board.:D
