Smile What do you think

I just wanted to run this buy some people who have a little more experence booksing cruises then I do.Last month we recieved an offer from the company that we booked are first cruise thru that they would put the deposit down for us if we wanted to book a cruise, and that it would be due by final payment.So we went ahead and booked a cruise for next April.We also had to pay this company a $28.00 booking fee.Now if the price of the cruise goes down are we intiltled to the lower price?Since the cruise was so far out there were alot of empty cabins so we just chose a specific cabin. It all seemed like a pretty straight up deal to me. What do you guys think?

it all depends upon the fine print of your agreement

Not so sure about this deal, not liking the booking fee....time will tell if it is a good deal, but it also sounds like you are stuck with this price. Like Lisa said, make sure to read everything, so there are no suprises....Keep us posted.

When you first booked with them, was there a booking fee? That's the fly in the ointment that is troubling to me.....give them a call asap, and see exactly how this booking works...

Hummmmm it's the booking fee that sends 'red alerts' to me too. Double check the fine print ASAP....

That deal does not sound good to me at all.

I just booked a cruise myself and it was a much smoother process.
