As Yogi Berra once said, "It's deja vu all over again". This is exactly what we were hearing. One caller would be told "revenue has it for repricing", another one would be told "We don't have anything definite except the cruise is still on".
For about a month, there were many conflicting pieces of non-information and nothing on the web except that 3 cruises (10/24 t/a and 11/7 and 11/14 Caribbean) weren't showing up,
As I said, I quickly booked a trip that I would be very happy with and put the deposit on it. When they finally announced what they were doing, we got a $200 cabin credit and the option of the 10/24 Med cruise (added to the schedule for some reason), the 11/7 (new date) transatlantic or ability to pick another cruise at prevailing prices and take our booking credit plus the $200. We simply transferred everything to the Galaxy, had our TA get the nice sky suite we had picked, got our deposit back on the back-up reservation and moved on. The prices have gone up about $300 per person since on the SS, so we are feeling pretty good about it all. The secret was to book what we wanted, but not cancel.
Wonder why this is happening so much? It seems that some of the C-class ships are involved and they don't have pods, do they?
