    Price Paid and OBC amount?

    Anyone want to share how much they paid, what they got and how much OBC they received?

    I booked during WOW sale with a online travel agent on June 11th 2012.

    D8 Oceanview Balcony for $2729.50 including all fees and taxes. Received a combined total of $275 OBC.

    Sorry I didn't clarify. Price is per cabin (price for 2 people).

    We have found that OBCs are becoming less and less. We used to average about 10% of the price paid. Haven't done nearly so well lately.

    We got a D3 on Allure for December for $1089. ($100 on board credit) Booked nearly a year in advance. The price has only gone up. We try to keep a "Next Cruise" certificate (RCI) for booking impetuously at home to ensure at least $100 on board credit.
    Stopped using travel agent years ago...I can do about as well booking direct and I KNOW what is happening all the time.

    My brother booked the Allure sailing June 17, 2012 for a D4 Balcony for $1599 per person before taxes and fees,.The third person charge was $1199.

    He received $100 on board credit, pre-paid gratuities for two, and a $50 dining credit.
    He booked with a well known online travel agency.

    Budgirl63, I didn't see you on the list of users watching this cruise. Do you check everyday? I hear price drops are sporadic and vary in time length. Some price drops last only several hours or just one day. Don't want you to miss out if there's a price drop.

    Can I ask what did you end up paying, OBC amount and room category? Just curious.

    My friend that's in travel industry (flight attendant) can get it at $2200 for a D8 oceanview balcony.

    Davistran, We paid $2798...no OBC :frown: category D8 (8302)

    I guess I am not sure how to use this site? I put in the alerts page my category and the amount I paid...what else has to be done? How do I get on a list of users watching this cruise? :real confused:

    Also...I don't see this thread on the forum page anymore, what am I doing wrong? HELP!

    Select some events (UP, DOWN, etc.) and rates (USD/std, etc.) and click OK
