Question price drop after booking

Hope this is the right place to ask.....New to this. Just booked a cruise 2 weeks ago and now see that the price has dropped for the same cabin. Don't know what the best way to approach this is.

First, this is one main reason why you always want to book with an agent. Should the price go down, they can usually get the reduction for you without any problems and will usually let you know about it as soon as it happens.

With that said, call the cruise and ask the to reprice the cabin. As long as the final payment due date has not been reached, it's usually not a problem for them to lower the fair as long as the special is not 'for new bookings only'.

If it is 'for new bookings only', then you may have to cancel and rebook it.

Keep in mind that when you call the cruise line, they're interested in what's best for them, not what's best for you, so make sure you understand what the new rates entail and any special involved. Again, this is where a good agent really comes in handy. They don't charge anything for their services and have your best interest in mind.
