  • Accepted / Rejected

General Comments (offer details, etc.)  I am throwing in the offer details I was given.  Those are what I would have paid to get those classes to begin with.  Also the cabins offered were at the bow or stern of the ship.  I have a mid ship veranda.  Perfectly happy with it.  No need to move.  I would have tried to upgrade if it would have worked to my advantage.  Bidding to get an upgrade is silly. Especially the price for a minimum bid is the the amount more to get those classes when originally booking.  No deals to be had here.

I originally placed the Tracker in the thread initiated by CruisingChick on April 23, 2018.  However, the tracker gets lost amongst all the many questions/comments (understandably).  Thus, I have decided to create a single thread for tracking purposes only (filtering out everything else).  

The purpose of this thread is strictly for compiling information into a spreadsheet.   I will be running this tracker for ~ 6 months to see if any interesting trends come about and/or for general information purposes.  Will reevaluate its usefulness thereafter. 

IF you wish to participate, answer the following questions as best as you can and I will transfer the info to the Tracker. 
Please do not ask questions here (redirect your questions/comments to the CruisingChick thread of April 2018).

General Comments (offer details, etc.)

 

I did not get extra obc from TA but TA does get a little more. Not available from all TAs. You also do not get extra points for move up. I never saw a lower rate for suites on this sailing, the only way to move up was with move up. Finally paid about half of published price. I like the other system better.

Regularly tracked available inventory  and comments in this tracker and adjusted bidding a few times over a 4 week period.

My expectations were low as we got such a great deal on the cruise with travel agent-Beyond thrilled with upgraded cabin location midship on deck 8,starboard side. Saved $150 US each compared to what we would of paid originally when we booked
