If you want a refundable deposit it eats the 10% savings, FYI. $800+ more than a NRD for a 7 night cruise.

 

Crazy! I had no idea that my Alaska booking was a refundable deposit! Just got off the phone with a warehouse TA who was informed by Celebrity that this was the case for us. We got a good price for both of our upcoming cruises, but it sure would have been nice to save 10%!

Wondering if I can rebook my already booked, already paid cruise and get the lower price?

 

We had our price adjusted, not sure if that is the same as rebooking.

Anyone get the 10% bonus  after final payment?  I filled out the form for our Edge Caribbean cruise Oct 2nd and am awaiting to hear back.  Hoping to receive OBC for the new rate.

I did a price check on a Caribbean cruise in January 2022 that I booked 10 days ago.

With the 10% discount I would save $2 per person for the entire cruise !!!

Obviously Celebrity raised the price enough to nullify the 10% discount !!!

From what our Celebrity PVP told us, he was not allowed to refare any of our existing bookings, to include our 3 Edge cruises in August, because their original booking dates were well before July 15, 2021. The reason was because of the first line in the T&C at the bottom of the promo page:

 

*Cruise must be booked between July 15, 2021 and August 31, 2021 (the “Offer Period”). Offer only applies to select sailings departing between July 23, 2021 and March 31, 2022 in the Caribbean and Alaska.

 

Anyone have any luck getting their existing Caribbean or Alaska booking(s) refared, without changing the original booking date, if it made economical sense to do so?

Just looked to see if we would save anything since I just did a stateroom category change on our August 7th sailing yesterday.

Cannot really understand why there is a charge on the all included line when no upgrades were purchased.

However if this is how Celebrity is faring with the discount I still have a better deal.

 Seems waiting pays off. We booked 7 days before they doubled the points.  Now we have a cruise that would have qualified for the discount had we not already booked.  Yes we had our choice of cabins,  u     but there are many available cabins that are just as good

This  makes no sense since there is a price guarantee.

Their website specifically says “ If a lower cruise fare or different promotional offer advertised to the general public is found and your booking meets certain requirements, you may request to have that savings or promotion applied to your booking (savings options vary by whether the request is submitted before or after the final payment due date).”.

I just phoned and got the pricing adjusted with the discount. My original booking was made in March. This is the third time I’ve had pricing adjusted either for lowered cruise fare or airfare for this trip. I’ve never had any problems. 👍

I looked at my confirmation again and apparently I have a group rate thru my TA.

Basically equals the 10% current offer !!!

I understand. All I can say is what he told me with regards to what was in the T&C of the promotion and what he was allowed to do. 

 

*Cruise must be booked between July 15, 2021 and August 31, 2021 (the “Offer Period”).

 

But I will also say we were able to refare 2 of our 3 August Edge cruises a couple of weeks ago with the CWC perk and actually got around $200 more back in OBC per leg than we anticipated, so we can't complain too much. 😎

Glad to hear you were able to get the 10% discount applied. Did you phone your TA or was it with a Celebrity rep you got the discount applied? I also just noticed you're in Canada. I wonder if that played a part in your success?

I phoned celebrity and talked to a rep. I booked my cruise online through Celebrity. 
 

I don’t think it has anything to do with being in Canada as I’m speaking to reps in the US. 🤷🏻‍♀️

The phrase "offer advertised to the general public".... might be how they can avoid the match...this was only offered to certain loyalty members and not the general public.

As well as the second part of that sentence which is clearly defined in the promotion's T&C:

 

“ If a lower cruise fare or different promotional offer advertised to the general public is found and your booking meets certain requirements, you may request to have that savings or promotion applied to your booking (savings options vary by whether the request is submitted before or after the final payment due date).”

I wonder what they mean by "meets certain requirements"... sounds vague enough to give them wiggle room...but I suspect if you. push it... the squeaky wheel theory. I would love to try. but my Nov cruise cabins are fully booked ..or so it appears.
