As I said, I was going to check the prices and ring up RCI to see if I could get the small price reduction that has been shown for the last couple of weeks.
I got a shock when I checked the prices. Instead of being a total of £2000, the room total was £1200 - for exactly the same room.
So I rang. They offered to reduce my booking by the peanuts it was advertised at, because this rate was for new bookings only.
I cancelled and rebooked. Now DH is angry at losing the deposit and only just sees that it is so in our advantage to rebook, the £300 that we lost is now not worth crying over.
With or without the deposit, yesterday I was facing a bill of £1700, today it is £1200.
I know it was unwise to book ahead, especially as we are driving to the ship so airfares did not come into the equation.
The whole policy does sour my RCI experience quite honestly.
