While Tuesdays are a good day for deals, it can be any day of the week. For example, today RCCL started a new deal. So check your rates. But this is also where it pays to use an agent; the public could not book this until today - we were able to book it yesterday. Also, after final payment has been made they won't offer any changes, but an agent often has tricks where they can get something for you.

As for you getting a refund back to your credit card, I'm assuming you made total payment before your final payment due date, which is not necessarily a good idea most of the time for a number of reasons. But still glad you got the discount.

47 Cruises & Counting! Favorites: Paul Gauguin to Tahiti: Uniworld River Cruises in Europe; any of the Celebrity Solstice-class ships; Holland America for 12-nights in the Baltics & Russia; RCCL for 14-night Greek Isles, Turkey, & Croatia; Holland America for 14-day Alaska cruisetour; 10-night Canada/New England cruise; 21 days in Hawaii including a 7-night NCL cruise; Oceania for 25 days in Asia; & 3 months touring Europe by train. And many days spent in all-inclusive resorts!
