I'm going to be booking a December cruise out of Miami and Regent will refund $400/pp if we prefer to book our own air. If I use Regent air, I'll need to pay ($125/pp?) to deviate because we want to add a day to the trip. The flights I want are in the $700-$850 range (and even the cheapest flights are $600+). My questions:
1) If I use Regent and deviate, will they charge me more than the $125/pp? If they don't, it seems like my "cost" per ticket is $525, which is less than I could book for on my own.
2) Is the process that I tell my TA (at time of booking the cruise) that I want to deviate and these are the flights I'd like (listing several acceptable choices)? And Regent says yes or no immediately?
3) Do I get to earn frequent flier miles on the flight?
