    Price Dropped - but no email notification?

    I check CruiseFish daily. I noticed a $50 pp drop in a cabin fare, so I called Royal Caribbean, and grabbed the price drop (thanks CruiseFish!)

    But, I never did get an email notification. I have notify setup to email me when the price drops (or rises), but I got nothing. The change just happened yesterday, so does it take a little bit of time?

    I receive other notifications on another alert I have setup, but not this one. So, I know it's not my email settings rejecting the email.

    Not a big deal since I check anyway, but thought you might want to know.

    Hi toddcan,

    This price alert was sent to you yesterday night. Are you sure it's not in your inbox?

    Nothing in my inbox. I just checked again. The odd thing is that I did receive a notification on the Allure of the Seas cruise I am also tracking - but nothing on the Independence of the Seas.

    I even checked my trash - nothing.

    Odd. I wonder if I deleted it without noticing. Thanks for looking into this.

    Hi Titus! Hope I am doing this correctly. I wanted you to know that Carnival has been having a sale, already 24 hours, and no email notice or anything from CruiseFish. First time not working from you. I saw it on Carnival.com and will save $30 and noticed that the rates have not reflected at all on your list. Wanted you to know. Sale is still going on. Alaska May 28, 2013 carnival's Miracle. I do love your business and post about it regularily:smile:

    Yep, I've been making some changes in the way rates are handled (to make way for some new features) and that impacted Carnival's specials.

    You should get notifications in the next few hours.

    Thanks for the notice,
